Any experience with the drug Mesalamine

Hi everyone! I just wondered if anyone here had experience taking the medication Mesalamine? What did you think of it? Many thanks

  1. on the drug currently, i get generic which is 1.2gms per pill and take 3 a day..They dont work over nite and can take a few months to see a difference, however you should see minimal changes in a week, depending how much you take..Its a toss up if it works as well as you think it should or move onto the next stage, most brand names UC drugs like Pentasa contain melsalimine

    1. Thank you for sharing your experience ❤️

      1. I took mesalamine for 12 years, but found that it didn't work for me as well, after I took it for a number of years. I tried alternative methods for a few years which included detoxing. I then tried to go back on mesalamine 1-2 years ago, but found out I'm allergic to it now. I'm currently taking supplements and vitamins for my mild/ moderate Crohn's. I get blood work done every 6 weeks to watch my liver function, cholesterol numbers, and many other functions.

        1. it was 1 of the 1st drugs drs tried me on for my crohns. It was ineffective. Nothing helped until they decided to try me on a biologic. Within a few months of trying Humira, i reached a remission that's lasted me almost 7 yrs now, thus far! As well, I've had no side effects. Highly recommend!

          1. I'm so glad you're feeling better! 7 years is so incredible. - Eshani (Team Member)
