Asacol (Mesalamine) Medication Information

Uses

Asacol is indicated for the treatment of mild to moderate ulcerative colitis. It can also be given for maintenance to keep ulcerative colitis in remission.

Ulcerative colitis is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Ulcerative colitis occurs in the colon, which is the final section of the gastrointestinal tract, including the large intestine and the rectum.

Ulcerative colitis affects the inner lining of cells in the GI tract and can range from mild to severe. Symptoms may include diarrhea, abdominal pain, rectal bleeding, weight loss, fatigue, and rectal pain. People with severe disease may have symptoms in other parts of their body like joint pain.

Asacol contains the active ingredient mesalamine, which reduces the overactive immune response in the large intestine and rectum. 

Dosage

Asacol is available in 400 mg tablets. 

For ulcerative colitis treatment, the usual dosage is 800 mg by mouth three times daily for six weeks.

For maintenance of remission, the usual dose is 1.6 g by mouth daily in divided doses for six months.

Side Effects

Common side effects of Asacol may include:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Acne Vulgaris
  • Alopecia
  • Arthralgia
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Dizziness
  • Dyspepsia
  • Eructation
  • Exacerbation of colitis
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Hematuria
  • Hypertension
  • Influenza
  • Nasopharyngitis
  • Nausea
  • Nervousness
  • Pain
  • Paresthesia
  • Rhinitis
  • Skin rash
  • Vertigo

Precautions

A small portion of patients may experience a worsening of ulcerative colitis symptoms after starting Asacol. Tell your doctor if you get worsening cramps, abdominal pain, bloody diarrhea, fever, headache, malaise, pruritus, rash, or conjunctivitis.

Asacol can increase the skin’s sensitivity to the sun. Wear sunscreen and other skin protection while taking Asacol.

Tell your doctor if you have a history of kidney impairment.

Do not use Asacol if you have a gastric or duodenal ulcer or urinary tract obstruction.

Interactions

Avoid medications that reduce stomach acid while taking Asacol because they can interfere with absorption.

Common drug interactions include:

  • Antacids
  • H2 receptors antagonists
  • Proton pump inhibitors

Storage

Store Asacol at room temperature 20°- 25°C (68°- 77°F) in a cool, dry environment. Avoid humid rooms like the kitchen or bathroom.

Pharmacist Tips

  • Do not crush, chew, cut, or break Asacol tablets.
  • Use sunscreen while taking Asacol and avoid sources of artificial sunlight like tanning beds.
  • Different formulations of Asacol are not always interchangeable. Check with your doctor and pharmacist before switching where you obtain your medication.
  • Take Asacol on an empty stomach, one hour before or two hours after a meal.

Asacol FAQs

How long does it take for Asacol to work?

Symptoms should improve within two to four weeks of starting Asacol, but it may take longer for ulcerative colitis to go into remission. Continue taking Asacol for the full six-week course unless directed by your doctor.

Can Asacol cause damage to my liver or kidneys?

Very rarely, Asacol can cause liver or kidney damage that is reversible when the drug is stopped.

Why can’t Asacol be split?

Asacol works upon contact with the cells of the lower GI tract. It has a special coating that allows it to reach the area without being broken down during digestion. Splitting the pill will destroy the protective coating.
