What is sulfasalazine?

Back to Sulfasalazine

Sulfasalazine is a type of drug known as a disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug (DMARD). These drugs have the effect of dampening down the underlying disease process, rather than simply treating symptoms. Sulfasalazine is generally prescribed as Salazopyrin EN-Tabs. This is the brand name for sulfasalazine that’s specially coated so that it doesn’t dissolve quickly in your stomach.
