Salazopyrin Suppositories Description

For those that are dealing with the symptoms of Ulcerative Colitis or Crohn’s disease, talk to your doctor about a prescription for Salazopyrin Suppositories (also called Azulfidine). There is no cure for either of these bowel diseases, but using Salazopyrin Suppositories will decrease the symptoms, including stomach pain and cramping, diarrhea, and loss of appetite as well as increase your chance of remission. Salazopyrin Suppositories can also be prescribed for treating rheumatoid arthritis to help reduce damage to your joints.

Sulfasalazine Works Directly on the Large Intestine

The active ingredient in Salazopyrin Suppositories is called Sulfasalazine, an aminosalicylate that can work its anti inflammatory effects directly to the area in your bowel where it is needed. It is believed to be metabolized by the bacteria that live in your bowel. Once metabolized, Salazopyrin Suppositories work to suppress your immune system in order to stop inflammatory chemicals from being released and causing your symptoms of Ulcerative Colitis (UC) or Crohn’s disease (CD). Because Salazopyrin Suppositories acts locally as opposed to going from your mouth and through your entire system, there is less risk of side effects.

Conditions Treated by Salazopyrin Suppositories

Both UC and CD are considered to be autoimmune diseases that are chronic and have no cure. The difference between these two is that UC is usually limited to your large intestine (colon), while Crohn’s can involve any part of your gastrointestinal tract from your mouth to the anus. Salazopyrin Suppositories will only benefit those with Crohn’s disease if the inflammation is located in the colon, otherwise oral medications may be prescribed.

For relieving symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, Salazopyrin Suppositories may be prescribed for those that have trouble swallowing pills. RA is another autoimmune disease where your immune system is misguided and believes that the tissues in your joints are a threat so they come under attack and cause inflammation, swelling, and pain in the affected joints. There is no cure for rheumatoid arthritis, but Salazopyrin Suppositories can help slow the progress of this disease and provide pain relief.
