I've heard that anti-inflammatory drugs are a no for asthmatics, but I don't know if they've given them to me knowing about my asthma or they haven't read my notes.
Octasa isn't a NSAID. So, taking Octasa will have no adverse affect on your asthma.
NSAID is also known as ASA chemically.
Mesalamine-based anti-inflammatory medications like octasa are known as 5ASA chemically. Although they sound chemically similar, they are very different in affect on our body. Octasa is a 90 percent topical medication that's passed when you poop. The 10 percent that's absorbed into your blood is passed when you pee (and might slightly darken your pee).
