Drug Info for canasa

Rectal mesalamine is used to treat ulcerative colitis (a condition which causes swelling and sores in the lining of the colon [large intestine] and rectum), proctitis (swelling in the rectum), and proctosigmoiditis (swelling in the rectum and sigmoid colon [last section of the colon]). Rectal mesalamine is in a class of medications called anti-inflammatory agents. It works by stopping the body from producing a certain substance that may cause inflammation.

Canasa is used to treat ulcerative proctitis. There is not a Canasa generic drug currently available on the market. On average Canasa is quite expensive, at about $1,206 for a supply of 30, 1000 mg rectal suppository.
