Final Thoughts on Side Effects of Balsalazide

You may experience some or none of the side effects of balsalazide listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried. Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking the drug. Also let your healthcare provider know if you develop something that "just does not seem right" during treatment with the medicine. While it may not be a balsalazide side effect, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
