Hello ..,it should be Mesalamine suppositories ..check should be avoided if he has any prior kidney problems as it interacts with the soem other drugs and decreases their effectiveness ... All medicines have side effects ,he has hairy cell leukemia so it's better to consult oncologist and take his opinion before taking tablets .
