Sulfasalazine and Mesalamine

Sulfasalazine has been prescribed for decades in pregnant IBD patients with no evidence of teratogenicity (Diav-Citrin et al, 1998). Oral and topical mesalamine agents are not associated with congenital anomalies.

High dose aminosalicylates should be avoided during pregnancy because of reported fetal nephrotoxicity.
