    I had been taking "brand" Asacol - it is a delayed release mesalamine 400 Mg.
    I switched to generic and was supplied Novopharm "NOVO-5-ASA". I do not see anything on the label to indicate it is a delayed release capsule. Please tell me if it is or not delayed release.

    Hello Gwynne,
    i suppose Novo-5 ASA tablets is delayed release in fact because these tablets is enteric coated.

    Asacol dissolves at a pH of 7.
    Novo-5ASA dissolves at a pH of 5.5 (according to their own product monograph.)

    The difference is that the second product will deliver close to half the dose into plasma (blood) where it is not needed. The first product will deliver most of the drug into the colon. Canada is the only country in the world with this product on the market. It is not a "generic" of any other product.
