Azasan Drug Information
If you have rheumatoid arthritis or have had a kidney transplant, your healthcare provider may prescribe Azasan® (azathioprine). This medicine helps prevent the body from rejecting a newly transplanted kidney and can also help relieve certain arthritis symptoms. It comes as a tablet that is taken once or twice daily. You can take your dose with or without food, but try to take it at the same time every day.
Some of the potential side effects of the medication include nausea, vomiting, and infections. Your healthcare provider will need information on any other medical conditions you may have before starting treatment with Azasan, as this product can cause potentially serious and even life-threatening complications in some people. There are also some drug interactions that can occur with Azasan, so make sure your healthcare provider is aware of all other medications, vitamins, and supplements you are taking.
