Question about Salazopyrin
Salazopyrin is the trade name for sulphasalazine. It is less commonly used for mild to moderate ulcerative colitis these days, as its side-effect profile is greater than that of mesalazine which is now used as first-line treatment for this indication. However, the drug can be particularly useful for patients with arthritis associated with inflammatory bowel disease, as well as for patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Sulphasalazine is much cheaper than mesalazine for patients purchasing anti-inflammatory drugs themselves. Monitoring blood tests are advisable for patients taking this medication. The drug is contraindicated in patients with a history of sulphonamide allergy.
