Uses
Dipentum (Olsalazine) is given to patients suffering from ulcerative colitis. This medication is considered effective at treating the symptoms this condition can cause, such as inflammation of the bowel, pain in the stomach, diarrhoea, bleeding of the rectum and other tissue damage. The main ingredient in this medicine is a type of anti-inflammatory drug, and it treats the symptoms of ulcerative colitis by preventing the production of natural substances called prostaglandins, which can cause pain and inflammation. Another use for this drug is treating Crohn's disease.
