Azasan review





Azasan is an immunosuppressant, which is a medicament whose purpose is to weaken the immune system. It also goes by the brand name Imuran and is available in tablet form, as an injection, or intravenously. Azasan is given to patients anticipating an organ transplant or who have already been given a new organ, to help prevent rejection by the immune system. It is also given to reduce the signs and symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, which is a disorder where the immune system attacks the joints and causes severe pain. In some cases, Azasan is used to treat colitis ulcerosa, a chronic condition that causes pain and diarrhea in the intestines. Other inflammatory conditions can be treated by Azasan and include systemic lupus erythematosus, inflammatory myositisis, inflammatory bowel illness, and vasculitis. It usually takes six to eight weeks for your condition to improve, though it sometimes takes up to twelve weeks.

Azasan has several different side effects. Most importantly, it can cause a decrease in the number of blood cells in your bone marrow. Call your doctor immediately if you have any unusual bleeding or bruising, fatigue, headache, confusion or dizziness, increased heart rate, weakness, difficulty breathing, sore throat, fever, chills, or any signs of infection. It can also increase your risk of developing some cancers, such as skin cancer and lymphoma. Let your doctor know if you have ever taken any cancer medicaments or if you find suspicious lumps or masses on your body.

In addition to the rare but serious side effects above, Azasan's common side effects include an upset stomach, emesis or diarrhea, muscle soreness, blurred vision, mouth sores, coughing, lack of energy or appetite, flu-like symptoms, rash, or yellowing of the skin or eyes. Contact your doctor if these symptoms are severe or do not go away. During the course of your treatment with Azasan, you should be receiving regular blood tests to ensure that these side effects are not inhibiting your treatment. Some people are not able to take Azasan, or may require a lower dose or special monitoring.

Studies regarding the effects of Azasan offer contradicting conclusions with respects to the safety of this medicament for pregnant women. Early studies indicated that Azasan would not cause any deformities or problems for a developing fetus, and very little risk for pregnant women or their babies. However, recent studies suggest that fetal harm can result from taking Azasan. No conclusions have been reached as to how much harm or what doses put a fetus in danger. Due to the uncertainty surrounding this subject, exercise extreme caution if you are pregnant and considering treatment with Azasan. Do not breastfeed while taking this medicament since it is considered a cytotoxic medicament and can be harmful to nursing babies.
