What is Canasa?

Canasa contains mesalamine and is prescribed to treat ulcerative proctitis. Canasa is a suppository medication which is taken rectally. Mesalamine is an anti-inflammatory medication which works by blocking the production of natural chemicals which cause pain and swelling thereby decreasing irritation and swelling in your colon. Taking Canasa suppositories can help to decrease rectal bleeding, your number of stools and the amount of mucus and blood within your stools.

Always read the medication information and instructions before using this medication.
Always follow your doctor’s directions.

  • Canasa is typically taken once daily before bed.
  • If possible, you should have a bowel movement before using Canasa.
  • Lie on your side, bringing your topside knee to your chest. Insert the suppository into your rectum using your finger, pointed end first.
  • Use gentle pressure in order to insert the suppository completely. Try to keep it in place for 1-3 hours or longer if possible.
  • If it helps, you may put a small amount of Vaseline or other lubricant jelly onto the tip of the suppository.
  • Try to handle the suppository as little as possible to avoid it melting and wash your hands thoroughly after using this medication.
  • Continue to use Canasa for the whole length of prescription, even if your symptoms improve.
