    Frequently asked questions FOR SAAZ

    Sulfasalazine

    Q.

    How does it work?
    Sulfasalazine is formed by combining two chemicals salicylate and sulfapyridine. In inflammatory bowel disease, salicylate act locally to reduce inflammation by decreasing the formation of chemicals called prostaglandins. In rheumatoid arthritis, the sulfapyridine absorbed in the body reduces pain and inflammation

    Q.

    What is sulfasalazine used for?
    Sulfasalazine is used in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (diseases of bowel characterized by recurring and remitting episodes of diarrhea and abdominal pain; these include ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease) as well as severe rheumatoid arthritis (disease where the body's immune system attacks one's own organs, especially the small joints causing pain, swelling and deformity)

    Q.

    Can I take sulfasalazine with ibuprofen/ prednisolone/ naproxen/ aspirin/ Tylenol (paracetamol)/ omeprazole/ probiotic/ tramadol?
    Sulfasalazine is usually prescribed with a steroid like prednisolone for immediate relief of symptoms of both inflammatory bowel disease (diseases of bowel characterized by recurring and remitting episodes of diarrhea and abdominal pain; these include ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease) as well as rheumatoid arthritis. No clinically observed drug interaction has been reported with pain-relieving medication like ibuprofen/ naproxen/ aspirin/ paracetamol; although these drugs may be used with caution in ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. Omeprazole/ probiotic/ tramadol can be used with sulfasalazine. Always follow your doctor's advice regarding concomitant drugs.
