Azulfidine 500mg 60 Tabs Sulfasalazine

THIS IS A BRAND MEDICATION

INDICATIONS: Sulfasalazine, in his presentation of EN-tabs, is indicated in the systemic treatment of inflammatory bowel diseases (eg ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease).

The tablets of enteric-coated sulphasalazine-EN-tabs-are indicated in the systemic treatment of:

• Rheumatoid arthritis in adults.

• pauciarticular and polyarticular course of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.

CONTRAINDICATIONS: Azulfidine ® is contraindicated in:

• Hypersensitivity to sulfasalazine, its metabolites, sulfonamides or salicylates.

• Patients with porphyria.

PRECAUTIONS: Sulfasalazine should not be given to patients with impaired hepatic or renal function or with blood dyscrasias, unless the potential benefits outweigh possible risks.

The presence of clinical signs such as sore throat, fever, pallor, purpura or jaundice during treatment with sulfasalazine may indicate bone marrow suppression, hemolysis, or hepatotoxicity.Discontinuing treatment with sulfasalazine while you are waiting for blood test results.

Oral administration of sulfasalazine inhibits the absorption and metabolism of folic acid and can cause folic acid deficiency, which can potentially lead to serious blood disorders (eg macrocytosis and pancytopenia).

As with other sulfonamides, sulfasalazine may cause haemolysis in patients deficient in the enzyme glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase.

Sulfasalazine should be provided with caution in patients with severe pictures allergy or bronchial asthma.

Since sulfasalazine causes crystalluria and kidney stones, you must maintain an adequate fluid intake.

The use in children with systemic onset juvenile rheumatoid arthritis may result in a reaction similar to serum sickness, therefore, not recommended the use of sulfasalazine in this class of patients.

Oligospermia and infertility may occur in men treated with sulfasalazine. Discontinuation of the drug, apparently reverses these effects after 2-3 months.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION: Oral.

The dosage of sulfasalazine should be adjusted to each individual according to patient tolerability of the drug and response to treatment.
