 5  crohn's Can cause minor stomach ache sometimes but nothing that doesn't go away pretty quickly. No bad side effects. Have had wonderful luck with this drug. Even after flares and a round of Entocort, it keeps me in check. Would recommend it highly before all the drugs with horrible side effects! F 59 4 years

DIPENTUM  (OLSALAZINE SODIUM):  Olsalazine is used to treat a certain type of bowel disease called ulcerative colitis. It does not cure ulcerative colitis, but it may decrease symptoms such as stomach pain, diarrhea, and rectal bleeding caused by irritation/swelling of the colon/rectum. After an attack is treated, olsalazine is used to increase the amount of time between attacks. Olsalazine is a salicylate anti-inflammatory drug. It is believed to work by blocking the production of certain natural substances (e.g., prostaglandins) that may cause pain and swelling.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
