About CYCLOPHIL ME 25MG TABLET

CYCLOPHIL ME 25MG TABLET belongs to the class of medicine called 'immunosuppressant' that helps to reduce the pain/inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis conditions and also used to treat severe psoriasis. Besides this, it also prevents organ rejection after a kidney, heart, or liver transplant. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease (the body's immune system attacks its tissue) that leads to joint pain and damage. Psoriasis is a long-lasting, inflammatory skin illness. It is not infectious but has a tendency to run in families. 

CYCLOPHIL ME 25MG TABLET contains 'cyclosporine' that works by reducing the function of the cells, causing inflammation especially in the joint tissues thereby decreasing pain, inflammation, and slowing down the joint damage and disease progression over time.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Rheumatoid arthritis: It is an autoimmune disease (the body's immune system attacks its tissue) that leads to joint pain and damage. Symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis include pain, inflammation of joints, difficulty moving, and swelling.

Organ (kidney, heart, or liver) transplant rejection: When you get a new organ transplanted to your body, your body recognizes it as a foreign element and tries to attack and reject it because it is not originally part of your body. So, immunosuppressant drugs like cyclosporine are given to such patients to suppress your immune system to attack a newly transplanted organ. The goal is to adjust immunosuppressants to prevent rejection and to minimize any side effects of the drugs.

Psoriasis: It is a long-lasting, inflammatory skin illness. It is not infectious but has a tendency to run in families. It causes itchy and red patches on the skin.
