Mesalamine, also known as mesalazine, is the generic term for an aminosalicylate anti-inflammatory drug, predominantly used to alleviate symptoms of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The medication can help bring an active episode into remission as well as maintain remission.

It's possible to buy Mesalamine under a variety of names, including Pentasa, Azacol, Lialda, and many others. The medication is also available in a variety of formulations:

  • Tablets - Good for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Tablets must not be split or chewed.
  • Granules - Similar to tablets, treats Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. Patients who have difficulty or an aversion to swallowing tablets will want to buy Mesalamine granules; very small, they're simply placed on the tongue and swallowed.
  • Enemas - A fluid applied to the rectum; patients with distal ulcerative colitis or ulcerative proctitis may want to buy Mesalamine enemas rather than tablets or granules; this is a more direct administration method.
  • Suppositories - Very similar to enemas, suppositories are a solid instead of fluid. Also ideal for distal ulcerative colitis or ulcerative proctitis.

Mesalamine can be used in patients of all ages, but children should always be seen by a doctor first. Dosage modification will be required.

How to Use

All formulations of Mesalamine can treat active episodes as well as help maintain remission. Dietary modifications can also help.

In an active episode, IBD can be both uncomfortable and disruptive. Patients often experience abdominal discomfort, diarrhea, urgent need to evacuate the bowels, nausea, bloating, and similar symptoms. Avoiding foods that promote bowel movements, such as caffeine, may help to a small degree. Patients should also take care to avoid becoming dehydrated.

It is because of active episodes that most IBD patients start buying Mesalamine. The medication soothes the inflammation and irritation in the bowels, reducing symptoms within a few days to two weeks. Once the symptoms are reduced, continuing to take the medication every day helps keep the condition in remission.

In remission, patients have no or very few symptoms of IBD. Avoiding triggering foods can help keep it in remission; taking Mesalamine also helps---many patients stay in remission while taking the medication. Others will still have the occasional active episode, but these episodes should be less frequent, less severe, and easier to resolve.

Regardless of the brand or formulation used, treatment is typically very similar:

  • To treat an active episode, take 4 g (4000 mg) once per day.
  • To keep IBD in remission, take 2 g (2000 mg) once per day.
  • Children who weigh less than 40 kg (88 lbs) should take 2 mg to treat an active episode and 1 mg to keep IBD in remission.
  • Children under age 6 should be seen by a doctor.

Note that instructions may vary according to patient response and other factors. Some adults take less than 4 mg per day, others take multiple smaller doses throughout the day rather than one big dose.

In all cases, if an active episode is not significantly better within two weeks of starting treatment or at any time the condition becomes worse, stop taking Mesalamine and consult a doctor.

Before Buying Mesalamine

Some individuals are at increased risk of severe side effects; do not buy Mesalamine without first speaking to a doctor if there is a history of:

  • Allergic reaction to aspirin or any salicylates
  • Severe kidney or liver issues
  • Peptic ulcer
  • Bleeding disorders
  • Breathing disorders

Other medications which may cause problems include:

  • Medications that suppress the immune system
  • Medications that inhibit clotting or thin the blood
  • Chemotherapy medications

Again speak with a doctor if taking the above before buying Mesalamine. To be on the safe side, always double-check with a doctor or pharmacist before taking any other medication, including over-the-counter varieties.

More common side effects are not cause for concern unless severe or persistant, and are often very similar to those caused by IBD, including abdominal discomfort, diarrhea, and nausea.
