Mesalamine (also known as 5-aminosalicylic acid) is used to treat ulcerative proctitis, a type of bowel disease. It does not cure ulcerative proctitis, but it may decrease the number of stools, the amount of mucus/blood in the stools, and the rectal bleeding caused by irritation/swelling of the colon/rectum. Mesalamine is an aminosalicylate anti-inflammatory drug. It is believed to work by blocking the production of certain natural chemicals that may cause pain and swelling.
How to Use Salofalk
Read the Patient Information Leaflet provided by your pharmacist before you start using mesalamine and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, consult your doctor or pharmacist. Use Salofalk rectally. If you are using the 1000-milligram strength, insert rectally, usually once daily at bedtime. If you are using a lower strength, then your doctor may direct you to use Salofalk 1 to 3 times daily. Follow your doctor's directions carefully. Dosage of Salofalk is based on your medical condition, response to therapy, and the strength of your prescription. Drink plenty of fluids during treatment with Salofalk unless otherwise directed by your doctor. This will help prevent kidney stones. Salofalk works best if you have a bowel movement before using it. Wash your hands before and after using the medication. Unwrap the suppository right before using. Try to handle it as little as possible because heat from your fingers may cause it to melt. Lie down on your left side with right knee bent. Gently insert the suppository, pointed end first, into the rectum with your finger. Use a small amount of lubricating gel on the tip of the suppository if desired. Remain lying down for a few minutes. Try to avoid having a bowel movement for 1 to 3 hours, keeping the suppository in place so the medicine can work. Salofalk may stain surfaces that it touches (such as clothing, floor, and counter surfaces). Use Salofalk regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same time(s) each day. Tell your doctor if your condition lasts or gets worse.
Before using mesalamine, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or to other aminosalicylates (such as balsalazide, olsalazine); or to salicylates (such as aspirin, salsalate); or to sulfasalazine; or if you have any other allergies. Salofalk may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Salofalk, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,kidney problems, liver disease, pancreas problems (pancreatitis), inflammation of the sac around the heart (pericarditis). Salofalk may make you more sensitive to the sun, especially if you have skin problems (such as atopic dermatitis, eczema). Limit your time in the sun. Avoid tanning booths and sunlamps. Use sunscreen and wear protective clothing when outdoors. Tell your doctor right away if you get sunburned or have skin blisters/redness. Salofalk is similar to aspirin. Children and teenagers younger than 18 years should not take aspirin or aspirin-related medications (such as salicylates) if they have chickenpox, flu, or any undiagnosed illness, or if they have just been given a live virus vaccine (such as varicella vaccine), without first consulting a doctor about Reye's syndrome, a rare but serious illness. During pregnancy, Salofalk should be used only when clearly needed. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. Salofalk passes into breast milk and may have undesirable effects on a nursing infant. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor before breast-feeding.
If you miss a dose of Salofalk, use it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose. Use your next dose at the regular time. Do not double the dose to catch up.
Drug interactions may change how your medications work or increase your risk for serious side effects. This document does not contain all possible drug interactions. Keep a list of all the products you use (including prescription/nonprescription drugs and herbal products) and share it with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicines without your doctor's approval. Salofalk may interfere with certain laboratory tests (including urine normetanephrine levels), possibly causing false test results. Make sure laboratory personnel and all your doctors know you use Salofalk.
Salofalk Side Effects
What are Salofalk side effects?
Side effects are physical, mental or emotional symptoms which occur in addition to or outside of the desired effect of a therapeutic treatment such as an over-the-counter or prescribed drug or medication. Side effects from Salofalk may occur at the beginning or at the end of treatment and may also depend on the length of time an individual remains on the treatment. Side effects, also known as adverse effects, are generally more likely to occur when starting treatment. Individuals may also experience side effects from Salofalk as a result of an interaction with other medications.
Side Effects of Salofalk
The side effects of Salofalk may vary in number and intensity for many different reasons. Factors such as age, weight, gender and ethnicity may influence the side effects of Salofalk. Also, an individual’s state of general physical health and seriousness of the disease or illness as well as an increase or decrease in dosage may lead to side effects. Further, side effects from Salofalk may also occur as a result of an interaction with certain herbal supplements, foods or drinks.
Prescription drug side effects can be serious and may cause patients to stop the treatment.

In addition, changes to diet, exercise or other lifestyle activities may help to lessen the side effects of Salofalk.
