Uses
Pentasa (Mesalazine) (also spelled mesalamine) is a medicine prescribed for ulcerative colitis and in some cases, it may be administered to stop ulcerative colitis symptoms from returning. Ulcerative colitis symptoms occur as a result of intestinal inflammation that affects the large intestine, causing bloody diarrhoea, pain and other symptoms. This medicine belongs to a group of medicines known as aminosalicylate, and it treats ulcerative colitis by decreasing inflammation of the intestines.

Dosage and Administration
Pentasa (Mesalazine) comes as prolonged release tablets which are taken exactly as instructed by the doctor that prescribed them. It is very important that the tablets are not crushed or chewed, as this may affect the prolonged release mechanism. The dosage instructions of the prescribing doctor must be strictly followed at all times, and patients should never exceed the recommended dosage.

Side effects
Taking Pentasa (Mesalazine) can sometimes cause:

  • Perspiration
  • Haemorrhoids
  • Ear or rectal pain
  • Pain in the joints
  • Symptoms similar to the flu

Inform your doctor if any bothersome side effects occur. Medical treatment will be needed straight away if you experience bloody urine, fever, weight gain or any other severe symptoms.

Precautions
All patients will need to have a medical test conducted on their kidney function before starting treatment, and it may also be necessary during treatment, as directed by the prescribing doctor.

Prior to beginning treatment, you must inform your doctor if you have ever been affected by liver disease, diseases affecting the kidneys or pyloric stenosis.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Pentasa (Mesalazine) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.

This medication may not be safe for all patients. Before you begin using it always disclose the following to your doctor:

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • If you suffer from any allergies.
  • If you suffer from any other health conditions or illnesses.
  • If you are using any other medicine (including all non-prescription).
