Ulcerative Colitis Remission is Possible with Apriso ER

Apriso ER is a 5-aminosalicylic acid medication in extended release form that only needs to be taken once a day to reduce your symptoms of rectal bleeding, stomach pains, diarrhea with mucus, or constipation and eventually send your ulcerative colitis (UC) into remission. There is no cure for colitis, but Apriso ER is an effective treatment that can help you break free from the confines of your bathroom and make it easier for you to go to work, school, family events, and social gatherings.

How Apriso ER Helps Reduce Inflammation

It is believed that colitis is caused by your immune system displaying abnormal actions as it attacks your own body tissues or organs. Inflammation is part of your immune response to a threat to cause harm, however this is an unwarranted attack and your intestines become inflamed and irritated.

When Apriso ER is taken as directed, the active ingredient called Mesalamine inhibits the enzymes responsible for enabling prostaglandins to be produced. Prostaglandins are the reason for inflammation; so by reducing their production, the inflammation in your intestines subsides and there is less pain and irritation.

Types of Ulcerative Colitis According to Location

From the mildest form to the severe; Ulcerative Proctitis is the most common form and is confined to the anus with rectal bleeding as the only symptom. Proctosigmoiditis involves the rectum and lower end of the colon (sigmoid colon) with bloody diarrhea and cramps. Left-sided colitis produces inflammation that extends from the rectum up through the sigmoid and descending colon and symptoms include weight loss, cramps, and bloody diarrhea. Pancolitis frequently affects the entire colon and causes severe bloody diarrhea, cramps, weight loss, and fatigue. Acute Severe Ulcerative Colitis also affects the entire colon but causes profuse diarrhea, severe pain, and inability to eat.

Before You Start Taking Apriso ER

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, trying to conceive, or are breast feeding to be certain Apriso ER is not harmful to your unborn or nursing baby. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies you have and list any OTC and Rx drugs you currently take or use, including herbal preparations and vitamin supplements. Your doctor can then determine if Apriso ER is safe for you to take.

Proper Use of Apriso ER

It is important that you swallow Apriso ER whole and do not crush, split, or chew it. The enteric coating delays the release of the tablet so it can last for 24 hours. Until you know how your body will react to Apriso ER, do not operate a vehicle, heavy machinery, or attempt any task that may be unsafe.
