Cilamin 250mg Capsule consists of the active ingredient Penicillamine. It is primarily used to treat Wilson’s disease and rheumatoid arthritis. Wilson’s disease is a condition that occurs due to excess accumulation of copper in the body. It is a chelating agent that forms a complex with the heavy metals in the body, especially copper, and facilitates its excretion through urine. It is also used in the treatment of cystinuria heavy metal poisoning.
Uses of Cilamin 250mg Capsule:
Cilamin 250mg Capsule is indicated to treat the following conditions:
- Wilson’s Disease
- Heavy metal poisoning when used with Calcium disodium EDTA and Dimercaprol.
- Excess cystine excretion in patients with cystinuria.
- Severe, active Rheumatoid Arthritis
How Cilamin 250mg Capsule Works:
Cilamin 250mg Capsule is a chelating agent that works by forming a ring-like complex with elements such as copper, mercury, zinc, lead etc., and enhances its excretion in urine. When used with Calcium disodium EDTA and Dimercaprol, the concentration of heavy metals in the blood decreases significantly. This low concentration is maintained long after the patient is discharged from the hospital. In the case of rheumatoid arthritis, Cilamin 250mg Capsule reduces the Rheumatoid factor and selectively suppresses mediators of inflammation.
Interaction with other drugs:
Inform your doctor about any medications you are taking or have taken before the treatment.
Store in a controlled room temperature (20-25˚C), in a tightly sealed container.
