Ulcerative colitis Mesalamine Mesacol

Uses
Mesacol (Mesalamine) (sometimes called 5-aminosalicylic acid) works inside the colon to reduce swelling. It is indicated for the treatment of ulcerative colitis and other form of inflammatory bowel conditions, such as Crohn's disease, a condition which affects the gastrointestinal system, causing ulceration and inflammation of the digestive tract which may result in bleeding affecting the rectum, pain in the abdomen, severe diarrhoea and other symptoms.

Some medical experts believe that its benefits in treating ulcerative colitis might have something to do with inhibiting cyclooxygenase and lipoxygenase, which may in turn reduce the overactivity of prostaglandins and decrease inflammation of the colon, leading to relief from symptoms.

Dosage and Administration
Mesacol (Mesalamine) comes as delayed release tablets for oral administration. Each tablet contains 800mg of the active ingredient. Your doctor may tell you to take this medicine for a short period of time, however other patients may be directed to take it continuously for the management of intestinal and bowel symptoms. The exact dosage needed can differ based on the individual circumstances of the patient and in all cases, you must strictly adhere to all instructions given by your doctor.
