Ulcerative colitis is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that causes long-lasting inflammation and ulcers in your digestive tract.

Ulcerative colitis affects the innermost lining of your large intestine (colon) and rectum. Symptoms usually develop over time, rather than suddenly, and include diarrhea, abdominal pain and cramping, rectal pain and rectal bleeding.

Management and treatment for ulcerative colitis include diet, surgery, and taking medicine. Common drug classes prescribed to treat ulcerative colitis are:

  • Azathioprine
  • Budesonide
  • Cyclosporine
  • Hydrocortisone
  • Mercaptopurine
  • Mesalamine (mesalazine, 5-ASA)
  • Olsalazine
  • Presdnisone
  • Sulfasalazine
