Sulfasalazine is used in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease, including ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. It is also indicated for use in rheumatoid arthritis and used in other types of inflammatory arthritis (e.g. psoriatic arthritis) where it has a beneficial effect.

In general, most patients can take sulfasalazine with few side effects. The most common side effects are nausea and abdominal discomfort, which often occur in up to a third of patients early in the course of treatment. Serious side effects such as stomach ulcers are actually less common with sulfasalazine than with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen (Advil) or naproxen(Aleve).

Abdominal side effects that do occur with sulfasalazine usually improve with time, and are often avoided by slowly increasing from a low starting dose. Sulfasalazine also is available in an enteric-coated (stomach-coated) pill that helps prevent nausea and abdominal discomfort.

Only about 10 percent of patients on this medicine will get a skin rash or headache. Even less commonly, patients taking this medication for rheumatoid arthritis will get mouth sores, itching or abnormalities of liver function.

Burning or skin damage from sunlight can also be a problem. Those on sulfasalazine should use sunscreen (SPF 15 or higher) when outdoors and avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight. Some people will develop orange colored urine, and even orange skin. This should not cause alarm. It is usually harmless and goes away after medication is stopped.

In some cases, sulfasalazine may reduce the number of disease-fighting white blood cells in the body, leading to a higher risk for infections. This often does not cause symptoms, but can be detected by regular blood tests performed by your doctor.
