Dipentum Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use this medication.

General: 5-ASA (5-Aminosalicylic Acid) preparations have been reported to cause a worsening of colitis symptoms in less than 1% of patients with ulcerative colitis. This reaction may also occur with Dipentum (Olsalazine) treatment due to its similarities to 5-ASA medications. Ulcerative colitis rarely remits completely and the risk of relapse can be substantially reduced by continuous long-term use of Dipentum (Olsalazine).

Pregnancy: Dipentum (Olsalazine) should not be used during pregnancy unless the benefits outweigh the risks. If you become pregnant while taking Dipentum (Olsalazine), contact your doctor immediately.

Breast-feeding: Dipentum (Olsalazine) may pass into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are taking Dipentum (Olsalazine), it may affect your baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.
