Buy Arava brand or generic Leflunomide prescription drug from Canada
Why is Arava prescribed?
Arava, with generic name Leflunomide, is used to control symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, a condition wherein the body attacks its own joints, which results in swelling, pain, and loss of function.
What does it do?
Leflunomide belongs to a class of medications called disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) which decreases inflammation and delays the progression of this condition, thus, improving the level of activity and mobility in people with rheumatoid arthritis.
How should I take it?
Arava is currently available as 10mg and 20mg tablet taken whole (not split, chewed, or crushed) by mouth with or without water. Arava does not cure rheumatoid arthritis –it only controls the symptoms associated with this condition. Take this medication regularly unless told otherwise by your doctor.
The dosage strength and frequency depend on every patient’s condition and the doctor’s prescription. It is imperative that you do not self-medicate and only take this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
What if I missed a dose?
The desired effects of prescribed medications will only be achieved if taken properly. As much as possible, strictly follow your doctor’s prescribed dosing schedule. However, if you miss a dose, take it immediately and adjust the time of your next dose depending on your doctor’s advice. Never take two doses at the same time just to make up for your missed dose.
What are the special precautions before taking Arava?
Inform your doctor about all the medications you are taking, your current and previous medical history, and any allergic reactions to Arava or any other ingredients included in the manufacture of this medication.
Inform your doctor if you had any form of surgery or if you are planning to get one.
