Is this a Sulfasalazine side effect

Hi I've just started taking sulfasalazine for a week now. I take 2 tablets twice a day. I was just wondering if it has a side effect of worst diarrhea??

Hi Natasha , sulfasalazine takes a few weeks to become effective , I have been on it nearly 30 years and its a really good maintenance drug , but I find it wont stop a flare on its own .
