What Strength (Dosage) are you looking for?
HOW TO USE THIS INFORMATION:The following summary is provided for informational purposes only. It does not contain all possible information about Salofalk. This information does not replace advice from a medical professional. You should always ask your doctor about your treatment, condition, or any medications you’re on as this summary does not contain complete information about Salofalk.
Salofalk (mesalamine) is used in the treatment of ulcerative proctitis, a kind of bowel disease. It doesn’t cure ulcerative proctitis, but can decrease the number of stools, the amount of blood/mucus in the stool, as well as rectal bleeding brought on by swelling/irritation of the rectum/colon. Mesalamine is a kind of drug called an aminosalicylate anti-inflammatory drug. It is believed that Salofalk works by blocking the production of some natural chemicals that can cause pain and swelling.
This section is for uses of Salofalk that aren’t included in the approved professional labelling for this medication but that may be prescribed by your doctor. Only use mesalamine for a condition present here if it has been prescribed by your doctor. Mesalamine can also be used for Crohn’s disease.
Read any information given to you by your pharmacy when you start mesalamine and whenever you get a refill. If you use the 1000 mg strength you will usually insert rectally once daily at bedtime. If you are using a lower strength, then your doctor may direct you to use this medication 1 to 3 times daily. Follow your doctor’s directions carefully. Your dosage will be related to your response to therapy, strength of your prescription, and medical condition.
Try to have a bowel movement before using Salofalk as it works best that way. Before and after using this medication wash your hands. Handle the suppository as little as possible as the heat from your hands can cause it to melt. Unwrap the suppository immediately before using and insert it into the rectum pointed end first.
If you need, you can use lubricating gel on the tip of the suppository if desired. Stay lying on your side for a few minutes and try to avoid having a bowel movement for 1-3 hours, keeping the suppository in place and allowing the medicine to work. Salofalk may stain surfaces it touches. Use Salofalk regularly and at the same times each day to get the most benefit from it.
There are some medications that shouldn’t be used together at all but in other instances two medications that may interact can still be used together. In these kinds of cases, your doctor might decide to change the dose or take other precautions.
The following medications may interact with Salofalk:
- Varicella Virus Vaccine
This is not an exhaustive list of medications that can interact with Salofalk and you should always give your doctor a list of all products you take. This list should include prescription and non-prescription medications, herbal products and vitamins. Always tell your doctors about all medications you take so that they can adequately monitor for drug interactions.
