What is Mesacol 400 mg?

Mesacol tablets contain Mesalazine as the active ingredient. Mesalazine belongs to the class of anti-inflammatory drugs.

Mesacol 400 mg is used to treat ulcerative colitis and Crohn's ileocolitis. Ulcerative colitis is a type of bowel disease that causes inflammation in the large intestine.

Also, ulcerative colitis causes ulcer production on the colon lining, which causes bleeding and pus and mucus discharge.

Chron's ileocolitis is also a long-term inflammatory disease of the intestines.

The medicine reduces diarrhea, stomach pain, and bleeding by reducing bowel inflammation, thus providing relief.

Mesacol tablets work by preventing the production of certain chemicals that cause inflammation. Always take it after discussing the dose and duration as prescribed with your doctor.

How Mesacol 500 mg works?

Mesacol tablets work by stopping the production of a chemical messenger called prostaglandins.

This chemical messenger causes inflammation in the intestines. As a result, the medicine relieves pain, bleeding, and ulceration.
