Buy Cuprimine brand prescription drug from Canada
Why is Cuprimine prescribed?
Cuprimine, with the generic name Penicillamine, is used to treat cystinuria, Wilson’s disease, and rheumatoid arthritis. Cystinuria is a genetic condition that increases the risk of developing kidney stones. Wilson’s disease, on the other hand, is a genetic disorder of copper metabolism that causes copper buildup causing several symptoms, while rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that causes the immune system to attack its own joints which can cause pain, redness, or swelling.
What does it do?
Penicillamine belongs to a class of medications called heavy metal antagonists and binds excess copper causing Wilson’s disease and the substances that predispose people with cystinuria to form kidney stones. It also reduces the response of the immune system to treat the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.
How should I take it?
Cuprimine is currently available as a 250mg tablet taken whole (not split, chewed, or crushed) by mouth without meals.
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.
