What is Pentasa?
Pentasa (mesalamine) is an anti-inflammatory medication used to bring about remission in patients with ulcerative colitis (it is also used in the treatment of proctitis, and proctosigmoiditis). Pentasa is typically prescribed to patients whose ulcerative colitis is in remission to prevent the recurrence of symptoms.
Pentasa is taken by mouth, potentially several times a day. Higher doses are prescribed when the intent is to bring the patient’s ulcerative colitis into remission.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Even mild ulcerative colitis can have a negative impact on your quality of life. Not only is living with UC stressful, but stress also aggravates the symptoms of the disease. Simplefill can help take some of the stress out of your life, specifically the worry that comes from struggling to pay for a necessary medication.
While there are programs designed to help Americans who are struggling to pay for the medications that their health depends on, many who would benefit from them aren’t even aware that help is available. Think of Simplefill as the bridge between those who need prescription payment assistance and those offering it.
How does Pentasa Work?
Pentasa belongs to a class of drugs called aminosalicylates, or 5-ASAs. Its exact mechanism of action is not fully understood, but it has been shown to reduce inflammation in the lining of the intestines. Its effects are believed to be topical rather than systemic. Pentasa appears to inhibit the production of prostaglandin in the colon, which may also account for its ability to decrease inflammation.
