About Spiropirf 200mg Tablet 10's

Spiropirf 200mg Tablet 10's is an anti-fibrotic medicine used to treat idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) in adults. IPF is an irreversible disease that is marked by a progressive decline in lung function. The tissues in the lungs become swollen and scarred over time, due to which it gets difficult to breathe deeply. The scarring makes it hard for the lungs to work properly.
 
Spiropirf 200mg Tablet 10's contains ‘Pirfenidone’, which helps in reducing the scarring and swelling in the lungs by decreasing the release/activity of naturally occurring growth factors in the body, thereby helps you breathe better. Spiropirf 200mg Tablet 10's helps in slowing down the progress of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. 
 
Take Spiropirf 200mg Tablet 10's with food. Swallow Spiropirf 200mg Tablet 10's as a whole with a glass of water; do not chew or crush the tablet. In some cases, you may experience certain common side effects such as nausea, tiredness, diarrhoea, indigestion, loss of appetite, headache, and photosensitivity. 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.
 
Consult your doctor before taking Spiropirf 200mg Tablet 10's if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Spiropirf 200mg Tablet 10's may cause tiredness and dizziness, so drive with caution.
