Salofalk is a medication that contains the active ingredient mesalazine, also known as 5-aminosalicylic acid.

Salofalk is used to treat and prevent relapse of mild to moderate inflammation of the lining of the large bowel and rectum, a condition known as acute ulcerative colitis.

Use and Dosage

Tablet: The recommended adult dose of this medication depends on the product selected. Swallow the tablets whole, ensuring that you do not break the outer coating. Take the tablets only as directed by your doctor. Do not change the number of tablets you take or how often you take them without first consulting your doctor.

Suppository, rectal suspension, rectal foam, and enema: The usual dose for suppositories, rectal suspension, and enema is 1 g to 4 g daily, usually at bedtime, or as prescribed by your doctor.

For the proper way to use these forms of medication, check with your pharmacist.

Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are using the medication without consulting your doctor.

Use this medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease never completely go away. Once a flare-up of the illness has been controlled, your doctor will recommend a smaller dose to be taken daily to reduce the chance of the symptoms flaring up again. It is important to not stop the medication suddenly, even when you are feeling well. Doing so may cause the illness to flare up again.

If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store all forms of this medication at room temperature, protect them from light and moisture, and keep them out of the reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g., down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

What should I avoid while taking mesalazine?

If you have a skin condition such as eczema, mesalazine could make you sunburn more easily. Avoid sunlight or tanning beds. Wear protective clothing and use sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher) when you are outdoors.

Ask your doctor before using an antacid and use only the type your doctor recommends. Some antacids can make it harder for your body to absorb mesalazine.
