Pentasa - also known as mesalamine - is used to deal with the symptoms of conditions such as Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis. It tends to be prescribed to adults when the symptoms are classed as moderate. As well as easing the symptoms it can also prevent the conditions from coming back.
When an attack occurs, there will be inflammation in the small intestine, colon, back passage and rectum. There is also the risk that ulcers may form. When this happens there can be diarrhea, stomach cramps and even blood loss from the rectum.
Mesalazine can bring down the inflammation and reduce the symptoms, including pain.
You will be told how to take the medication by your doctor as well as receiving a leaflet with the medication. Normally the treatment for moderate colitis will be 1 g tablets to be taken four times a day. This can be made of 4 capsules x Pentasa 250 mg or 2 capsules c 500 mg. The treatment should not go over 4 g per day. It is likely that the medication will be taken for up to 8 weeks.
Capsules can be swallowed whole or opened and sprinkled into yoghurt. It is not advised that they are chewed or crushed. There will be an age limit so if a child has the symptoms make sure that the doctor knows their age.
It is possible that you will suffer side effects when taking Pentasa, and they can include:
- Cramps and pain
- Blood in the stools
- Coughing up blood
- Loss of appetite
- Dark urine
- Sinus pain
- Sore throat
- Yellow tint to the skin.
Pentasa should not be used if you are allergic to it. Your doctor also needs to know if: -
- You already have heart disease
- You already have kidney disease
- Digestive tract blockages
- Pyloric stenosis
- You are pregnant
- You are breast feeding.
