About PSORID 50MG CAPSULE

PSORID 50MG CAPSULE 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. 

PSORID 50MG CAPSULE 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. Besides this, after an organ transplant, your body will try to attack the new organ as it sees it as foreign. PSORID 50MG CAPSULE helps stop your body from rejecting a new organ by suppressing your immune system. 

Take PSORID 50MG CAPSULE as prescribed by your doctor. You are advised to take PSORID 50MG CAPSULE for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you depending on your medical conditions.

Most of these side-effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, you are advised to talk to your doctor if you experience these side-effects persistently.
