What is DELZICOL®?
If you have been diagnosed with mildly to moderately active ulcerative colitis (UC), your doctor may recommend DELZICOL. DELZICOL contains a medicine called mesalamine, also referred to as 5-aminosalicylic acid or 5-ASA, which is a common treatment for this type of UC.
If you’ve been taking DELZICOL, you may have noticed the capsule has changed
Instead of one solid 400 mg capsule, there are four 100 mg tablets inside of one capsule that can be opened. While the active ingredient has not changed, and your DELZICOL should work the same, this capsule allows for patients 5 years of age and older to adjust their dosage and take DELZICOL as well.
DELZICOL may be effective in treating mildly to moderately active UC
- DELZICOL was shown to reduce symptoms associated with mildly to moderately active UC in patients 5 years of age and older.
DELZICOL was also shown to help maintain remission in adults with mildly to moderately active UC.
- "Remission" means that there was little or no inflammation in the patient's colon based on certain criteria by diagnostic evaluation* at the beginning of the study and 6 months later.
DELZICOL may help you relieve the symptoms of mildly to moderately active UC flares as part of a larger treatment plan to manage your condition.
If you are switching from a previous oral mesalamine therapy to DELZICOL, you should talk to your healthcare provider about discontinuing your previous oral mesalamine therapy and following the dosing instructions for DELZICOL.
