Description of Colazal

Colazal contains Balsalazide, and it belongs to the class of anti-inflammatory drugs. This drug is meant to be used only by patients over 5 years of age.

Being an anti-inflammatory drug, Colazal works by reducing the actions of chemicals that are responsible for causing inflammation of the bowel or colon. It is given to the patient in the form of oral capsules.

Indications & Dosage of Colazal

Colazal is used for the treatment of active ulcerative colitis.

Adult patients are usually recommended to take 3 Colazal 750mg capsules per day, taken three times a day. The duration of treatment is up to 8 weeks. In some instances, the treatment may also continue for 12 weeks depending on your medical condition and response to the treatment.

For children between 5 to 17 years of age, the recommended dose is usually one Colazal 750mg three times a day for 8 weeks. However, the dosage may vary depending on the patient’s medical condition, type of inflammation, and response to the treatment.

If you find the capsules difficult to swallow, you can open them and sprinkle the contents on applesauce. Swallow this mixture immediately. Since the contents of these capsules are not coated, you can also chew them. However, your teeth may become stained because of this.
