What is Azoran?
Azoran (Azathioprine) is an immunosuppressant used to treat rheumatoid arthritis. Sometimes the body's immune system will react excessively, not recognize the body and attack healthy tissues around the joints. Azathioprine will decrease the activity in the body's immune system to help prevent it from attacking the joints.
How is Azoran used?
The dosage will depend on the patient's condition and their reaction to the medication, contact a doctor for the correct dosage. Do not discontinue the treatment if there are no signs of improvement immediately as the full effects of the medication may not be felt until after 8 weeks of treatment. The drug is used to control rheumatoid arthritis but cannot be used as a cure for the condition.
Azoran (Azathioprine) may cause side effects such as:
