Mesacol CR 500 is an anti-inflammatory medication prescribed for treating bowel disease known as ulcerative colitis.

This may lead to abdominal pain, frequent diarrhoea, and bleeding. It helps to reduce symptoms such as stomach pain and bleeding by reducing inflammation in the bowel. The medicine contains Mesalamine, which works by producing certain chemical substances such as prostaglandins that cause pain and swelling.
