Mesacol CR 500mg Tablet is an anti-inflammatory medicine widely recommended to treat certain types of bowel disease (ulcerative colitis), intestinal inflammation and Crohn’s ileocolitis. It can treat mild to moderately active ulcerative proctitis that raises some symptoms like bloody diarrhea, rectal bleeding, and ulcerations of the rectum lining. It acts locally in the rectum to diagnose these symptoms, and therefore the medicine is intended for rectal use only. Sun Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd in India manufactures Mesacol tablets.
