Main Use Active Ingredient Marketed Name
Rheumatoid arthritis Auranofin Ridaura

Uses
Ridaura (Auranofin) is used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. Its active ingredient is a type of gold complex which works by acting on the immune system. Rheumatoid arthritis is a disease which can gradually progress and worsen over time. Symptoms include soreness and swelling of the joints in the feet, neck, hands and elsewhere in the body. It is also possible that nodules (types of bumps) may appear on the body, and this may even be accompanied by fatigue. Although the exact causes of this disease are not fully understood, it is widely believed that the joint inflammation is related to the immune system.

This medicine functions as a DMARD (disease modifying anti-rheumatic drug), and doctors often use it to treat patients who have failed to respond to other medicines used for arthritis. Experts have stated that it works by suppressing and reducing the immune system. Treatment helps to slow down the progress of the disease, while also reducing joint inflammation and pain. Although it can lessen some forms of disease activity, it will not reverse or repair any previous joint or cartilage damage.

Dosage and Administration
Ridaura (Auranofin) tablets are to be taken by mouth in exact accordance with the instructions given by your doctor. Adult patients are generally advised by their doctor to take 3mg (one tablet) twice per day, for a total daily dose of 6mg. Patients may need to take it for 3 to 6 months before it begins to fully work. If a sufficient response has not been noticed after 6 months, the doctor may increase the daily dosage to 9mg (3mg administered 3 times). The doctor may advise continuing on this dosage for 3 months, however if an adequate response is not noticed after this, treatment will be stopped. Always follow the instructions of your doctor.

Side effects
During the course of treatment with Ridaura (Auranofin) tablets, there is a chance that side effects may occur:

  • Gas
  • Diarrhoea
  • Bloated sensation
  • An unusual metallic taste
  • Slight pain or discomfort in the stomach

Report all reactions that occur to the doctor in charge of treatment. Bear in mind that you will require medical treatment straight away if you suffer from bloody stools or urine, sores which appear on the mouth, nausea which is serious in nature, feeling weak, bruising or any other serious side effects that have not been mentioned here.

Precautions
Blood and urine tests may be required by your doctor before you start treatment and at regular intervals throughout the entire course of treatment, so as to ensure that the medicine is not having any negative effects on your body.

Stay away from the sun or other forms of UV exposure (such as tanning lamps). This is because treatment with these tablets may make your skin more sensitive to discoloration or damage from UV light.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Ridaura (Auranofin) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.
