General Information On Imuran

An immunosuppressant, Imuran is used to prevent rejection of a kidney transplant and for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. This drug, like other immunosuppressants, works by suppressing the growth of T and B lymphocytes, which are essential parts of our immune system and provide protection from foreign materials and infectious diseases.

A patient who undergoes kidney transplant is prescribed this medicine so that his/her body accepts the kidney as his/her own. In other words, this medicine allows the body to immunologically accept the new organ. Rheumatoid arthritis patients who do not respond well to other medications are also asked by their doctor to buy Imuran and use it. Although the exact cause of rheumatoid arthritis is unknown, it is widely believed that abnormal autoimmune response is one of the many factors that trigger this condition. As this drug lowers patient’s immune system, it helps in preventing further joint damage and preserving joint function in people suffering from rheumatoid arthritis.

Side Effects for Imuran

Common and less serious side effects of this drug include: skin rash, nausea, mild stomach upset, or diarrhea. Some patients who buy Imuran may also experience loss of appetite during the first few days of treatment. You should contact your doctor if you continue to experience loss of appetite or any other aforementioned symptoms or if any of these symptoms become worse.

You should immediately stop the medication and call your doctor if you notice any of the following symptoms: easy bruising/bleeding, fever, sore throat, severe or persistent nausea, severe or persistent vomiting, diarrhea, severe stomach pain, burning sensation or pain while urinating, dark-colored urine, or black/tarry stools.

Although a very serious allergic reaction to this drug is highly unlikely, you must watch out for these symptoms: trouble breathing, hives, or itching/swelling (especially of face, throat, or tongue). In case you notice any symptoms of an allergic reaction then immediately stop the medication and seek medical help.
