About EPALRIDASE TABLET

EPALRIDASE TABLET belongs to a group of medicines called aldose reductase inhibitors used to manage diabetic neuropathy. Diabetic neuropathy is a chronic progressive nerve disease which causes nerve pain due to nerve damage in diabetic patients. It mostly affects the legs and feet.

EPALRIDASE TABLET contains ‘Epalrestat’ that works by inhibiting aldose reductase enzyme, which catalyses the conversion of glucose to sorbitol. Accumulation of sorbitol occurs due to hyperglycaemia in patients who have diabetes which leads to nerve pain. EPALRIDASE TABLET prevents the accumulation of sorbitol, thereby helps in treating diabetic neuropathy.
