Hello everyone, I’m new to this site. I’m on my 3rd week of Sulfasaline and today had the brightest red and clumpy blood after passing a stool. Does anyone know if this is from the meds?

Hi Nikki , We are not doctors.
Please phone your GP
First thing in the morning .
All the very best to you
I have been taking Sulphasalazine for many years but that has never happened to me. I would get in touch with your rheumatologist to tell them as soon as possible because even if it's not the Sulphasalazine it needs investigation. If you can't easily contact the rheumatology department, get in touch with your GP. I hope you can get it resolved.
Hi Nikki. I'm wondering if you suffer with haemorroids and if so, it may be something to do with that but it definitely needs checking with your GP, as the others have said, and the sooner the better, even if only to put your mind at rest. Good luck. 🤞
I'm sorry but that's something I've not experienced. I do hope you look into it with your doctors. Take care 🙂
Doesn’t matter where it’s from ….if you’re passing blood in your stools you should contact your doctor.
You say ‘after’ not ‘in’ stools which sounds more like haemorrhoids, but needs a GP appt
Hi Nikki, Go to the doctor and get it checked out could be just piles. I take sulphasalazine and I have never had that problem.
Good luck and take care.
As others have said Nikki, contact your doctor who will almost certainly arrange further investigation. Better to be safe than sorry. Take care.
You need to consult your GP Nikki.
Thank you for everyone’s input. I’ve contacted my Rheumatologist and I’m being admitted for further tests. My doctor thinks it’s bowel and not from the meds. Thank you!
