Uses
Azathioprine (Azathioprine) belongs to a class of drugs called immunosuppressants, and is used to lower the immune system. Although the immune system is important for protection against bacteria and infection, it may attack a transplanted organ, and in some cases, healthy tissue may also be attacked (autoimmune diseases).

Patients are sometimes given this medicine after a kidney transplant, so as to prevent the organ from being attacked, and to allow the body to accept it, and it may also be used to treat Crohn's disease. In addition to this, it is widely used for autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, autoimmune haemolytic anaemia, chronic idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, polymyositis and many other related conditions.

Dosage and Administration
Azathioprine (Azathioprine) comes in the form of 50mg tablets. The dosage will be decided by your doctor, based on your weight, and also the condition requiring treatment, as the correct amount of medicine may be different for each condition. Adults treating systemic lupus erythematosus have sometimes been told to take 1mg to 3mg per kilogram of body weight, once per day, with the exact amount being calculated by the doctor. Treatment of eczema, sarcoidosis, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy and any other conditions is different, and in all cases, full compliance with the dosage regimen given by the doctor is necessary.
