CONIMUNE ME 100MG contains Cyclosporin which belongs to the group of medicines called immunosuppressive agents. Immunosuppressive agents are the drugs that suppress or reduces the strength of body’s immune system. It is used to prevent graft rejection in patients who have had an organ transplant, bone marrow and stem cell transplantation.
It can also be used to treat various autoimmune disease like severe rheumatoid arthritis, nephrotic syndrome (kidney disease), eye problems (endogenous uveitis, including Behçet’s uveitis) and skin diseases (atopic dermatitis, or eczema and psoriasis). Cyclosporin blocks the development of cells which attack the affected transplanted tissue and suppress abnormal immune function thus preventing the rejection of transplanted organs.
Limit your exposure to sunlight and UV light by wearing protective clothing and by applying a sunscreen to prevent skin cancer. Avoid consumption of alcohol or grapefruit juice while taking this medicine. This medicine should not be given to children for any non-transplant disease, except for nephrotic syndrome. Do not take this medicine if you have any uncontrollable infection or any type of cancer. Consult your doctor for advice.
