Itching with Pentasa

Has anyone experienced itching all over with Pentasa. It does say it is a side affect.

I haven't. I'm not convinced I've experienced ANYTHING with pentasa - good or bad. I think it's ineffective. Hope you get something good from it.

I haven't either. How long have you been on it? That stinks, I hope it just goes away for you.

Like violet, I dunno wot it's supposed to be doing!
Doctor told me it's a maintenance drug and an anti inflammatory?
Yeah right!

I'm with everyone on this. Pentasa is supposed to be released in the illeum to hold down inflamation, it's just like aspirin.

I've been on it for 13 years.
