User avatar Hi!

"Information For Patients On Sulfasalazine: Patients should be informed of the possibility of adverse effects and of the need for careful medical supervision. The occurrence of sore throat, fever, pallor, purpura or jaundice may indicate a serious blood disorder. Should any of these occur, the patient should seek medical advice."

Hope this helps.

Warm regards,
