What is Sulfasalazine? Sulfasalazine is a sulfa drug that is used primarily to treat inflammatory bowel disease and colitis. It is also used to reduce the actions of substances in the body that cause inflammation, tissue damage, and diarrhea.

What are the benefits of Sulfasalazine?
  • Acts as both an effective antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agent
  • Fights inflammatory bowel disease and colitis.
  • May also be used to treat vasculitis
  • Fewer side effects than some other anti-inflammatory medications

Formulated for: Dogs and cats

How is this medication given? Sulfasalazine is given by mouth

How does this medication work? The exact mechanism of action of Sulfasalazine in treating inflammatory bowel disease is unknown. Most of the oral drug is not absorbed into the blood stream, but remains in the intestine where it does its work.

What results can I expect? Sulfasalazine will not produce immediate effects, nor will it cure the condition. Generally the medication will need to be given for two or more weeks before effects are seen. At that point, your veterinarian may lower the dose. Do NOT lower the dose unless directed to by your veterinarian.br>
What form(s) does Sulfasalazine come in? tablets

Generic Name: Sulfasalazine

Common Brand Name: Azulfidine

Dose and Administration: The dose and duration of therapy will depend on the specific condition and the response to the medication. Give all of the medication your veterinarian has prescribed. Symptoms may start to improve before the condition is completely treated.. It may be given with food. Allow plenty of water for your pet to drink.

If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you.

If a dose is missed, give the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the dose missed and give only the next regularly scheduled dose. Do not give a double dose of the medication.

Uses: May also be used to treat vasculitis

Possible Side Effects: Stop giving the medication and consult your veterinarian if your pet experiences discharge from the eye, redness of the eye, squinting, or other signs related to the eye.

Drug and Food Interactions: Always tell your veterinarian about all medications and supplements your pet is taking before using Sulfasalazine.
