How Cyclophil Me 50 mg Capsule work
Cyclophil Me 50 mg Capsule is an immunosuppressant. It works by suppressing your body’s immune response to help accept a newly transplanted organ (e.g., liver, kidney, or heart). In rheumatoid arthritis, this immunosuppressive effect reduces inflammation (swelling) of joints and limits joint damage. In psoriasis, it works by reducing the activity of certain immune cells that cause overproduction of skin cells, thus improving scaling and redness.
This medicine works by blocking the cytokine genes in the T cells that are activated. It forms a complex with Cyclophilin and inhibits the activity of Calcineurin which helps regulate nuclear translocation. It also blocks the pathways that are triggered by antigens.
Take the missed dose of Cyclophil Me 50 mg Capsule as soon as you remember. If it is time for your next dose, skip the missed dose. Do not double your dose to make up for the missed dose.
