Pentasa is prescribed to treat, and maintain improvement of, the symptoms associated with ulcerative colitis, a condition which causes swelling and sores in the lining of the large intestine and rectum.
Pentasa is dispensed as a capsule that is taken orally with water and without regard to food. The strength of the medication and the dosing frequency will be determined by your doctor and based on your condition, medical profile, and how well the medication controls the symptoms. Swallow the capsule whole, do not crush or chew it. If you are having difficulty swallowing the Pentasa drug capsule, it can be opened and the contents sprinkled on a tablespoon of applesauce, or other approved food product, and eaten that way.
Pentasa may cause a serious reaction whose symptoms are similar to those of ulcerative colitis; it may be difficult to tell if you are experiencing a reaction to the medication or a flare up. Call your doctor if you experience stomach pain or cramping, bloody diarrhea, fever, headache, weakness, or rash. Contact your doctor if you become pregnant while taking this medication. If sprinkling Pentasa on food, do not prepare it until you are ready to take it.
