Ccucol review

Ccucol, an immunosuppressant used to weaken the immune system, also goes by the brand names Imuran and Azasan. This medicament is available in tablet form, as an injection, or intravenously. Ccucol is administered to patients anticipating an organ transplant or who have already been given a new organ, to help prevent rejection by the immune system. This medicament is also given to reduce the signs and symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, a disorder where the immune system attacks the joints and causes severe pain. Ccucol is also used to treat colitis ulcerosa, a chronic condition that causes pain and diarrhea in the intestines. Other inflammatory conditions can be treated by Ccucol. These include systemic lupus erythematosus, inflammatory myositisis, inflammatory bowel disease, and vasculitis. A patient's condition usually improves in six to eight weeks, though it can sometimes take up to twelve weeks.

Ccucol has some known side effects. The most important one to note is that it can cause a decrease in the number of blood cells in your bone marrow. Call your doctor immediately if you experience any unusual bleeding or bruising, fatigue, headache, confusion or dizziness, increased heart rate, weakness, difficulty breathing, sore throat, pyrexia, chills, or any signs of infection. This medicament can also increase your risk of developing some cancers, such as skin cancer and lymphoma. Inform your doctor if you have ever taken any cancer medicaments or if you find any suspicious lumps or masses on your body.

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. Consult your doctor if these symptoms are severe or persist. While taking Ccucol, you should be receiving regular blood tests to ensure that these side effects are not inhibiting your treatment. Some patients are not able to take Ccucol, or may require a lower dosage or special monitoring during treatment.

If you are pregnant or may become pregnant, discuss the benefits and risks of this medicament with your doctor. Studies on the effects of Ccucol offer contradicting conclusions with respects to the safety of this medicament for pregnant women. Early studies indicated that Ccucol would not cause any deformities or issues for a developing fetus, and very little risk for pregnant women or their babies. However, recent studies suggest that harm to the fetus can result from taking Ccucol. No conclusions have been reached regarding how much harm or what levels of medicament put a fetus in danger. It is always best to err on the side of caution. Due to the uncertainty surrounding this subject, exercise extreme caution if you are pregnant and considering treatment with Ccucol. Do not breastfeed while on this medicament since it is a cytotoxic medicament and can be harmful to nursing babies.
