In other words, generic medications have the same pharmacological effects as their brand-name counterparts. Over half of all prescribed medications are for generic medications.

  • Asacol Overview

    Asacol is used to treat a certain bowel disease (ulcerative colitis). It helps to reduce symptoms of ulcerative colitis such as diarrhea, rectal bleeding, and stomach pain. Mesalamine belongs to a class of drugs known as aminosalicylates. It works by decreasing swelling in the colon.

  • How to Use Asacol

    Take Asacol by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor, usually 3 times daily. Swallow Asacol whole. Do not crush, chew, or break. Doing so can keep the drug from being released properly into the colon. The Dosage of Asacol is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. In children, the Dosage of Asacol is also based on weight. Different brands of Asacol deliver different amounts of medication. Do not switch brands without your doctor's permission and directions. Use Asacol regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same times each day. Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve or if it worsens.
