What is Pentasa?

Pentasa (Mesalamine) is a medication used to treat ulcerative colitis and Crohn disease and to prevent the symptoms from these conditions such as diarrhea, rectal bleeding and stomach pain from returning. Mesalamine works by decreasing swelling within your colon.

Always read the patient information and instructions carefully before using this medication.

  • Pentasa is taken orally and is typically taken four times a day. If you are taking the tablet form this should be taken with food. Pentasa capsules may be taken with or without food.
  • Swallow Pentasa whole. Do not crush, chew or break your medications as this may stop the medication from being properly released into the colon. If you have problems swallowing the capsules whole, you can open the capsules and sprinkle the contents onto yogurt or applesauce and then swallow this mixture immediately without chewing.
  • Your Pentasa dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Do not change your dosage or the frequency you take this medication unless advised by a doctor.
  • Pentasa is most effective when it is taken regularly. Try to take this medication at the same time each day. Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve or worsens.

Cautions

Make sure to tell your doctor and pharmacist:

  • If you have any drug allergies.
  • Which other prescription and non-prescription medications you currently take.
  • Your medical history especially of kidney disease, liver disease, stomach blockage or skin problems.
  • If you are breast feeding. This medication may have undesirable effects on a nursing infant.

Also be aware that:

  • This medication should only be taken when clearly needed during pregnancy.
  • Pentasa is similar to aspirin. Children and teenagers should not take this medication if they have chickenpox, flu or any undiagnosed illness or if they have recently received a vaccine.
