Mesacol OD 1200 mg is used to treat and prevent flare-ups of mild to moderately active ulcerative colitis (an inflammatory bowel disease). It works in the bowel to reduce inflammation and other disease symptoms.
Take Mesacol OD exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not take more of this medicine, do not take it more often, or longer than the prescribed period. Keep taking medicine for the full course of treatment, even if you begin to feel better after a few days. Do not miss any doses. Swallow the tablet without chewing, breaking, or crushing the tablet. If you take a Mesalamine tablet, you may take it before or after consuming food. Drink plenty of fluids so you will urinate more often, and it helps prevent kidney problems.
In deciding to use Mesacol medicine, the risk of taking medications must be weighed against the good it will do. You and your doctor will have to take the decision. For this, the following should be considered.
Allergies- Inform your doctor if you have ever had any unusual allergic reaction to the medicines. Also, let your doctor know if you have any other types of allergies, such as foods, dyes, preservatives, or animals.
Paediatric- Appropriate clinical studies to date have not demonstrated pediatric-specific problems that would limit the use of Mesacol OD to treat ulcerative colitis in children younger than five years.
Geriatric- There are no adequate studies on geriatric patients. However, elderly patients are more likely to have blood problems and age-related liver, kidney, or heart disease, which may require caution and an adjustment in the dose for patients Mesacol.
Breastfeeding- There are no adequate studies on women for determining infant risk when using this medicine during breastfeeding. Weigh the potential benefits against the potential risks before taking medicine while breastfeeding.
Drug interactions- Certain medications should not be used with Mesalamine, as they may interact with the medicine that can be used at the same time.
When taking this medicine, your doctor must know if you are taking any other medicines, including those you obtained with or without a prescription.
Certain medicines should not be used at or around when eating food or eating certain types of foods since interaction may occur. Using alcohol and tobacco with certain medications may also cause interactions to occur. Discuss with your doctor the use of your medicine with food, tobacco, or alcohol.
