Lefumide 10 mg is a prescription for adult patients with active rheumatoid arthritis. In rheumatoid arthritis, the immune system turns against a patient’s joint tissue. This brings the onset of inflammation, and the patient can have pain, swelling, and stiffness, which gradually leads to deformities of the joints. In patients with rheumatoid arthritis, Lefumide reduces or suppresses the abnormal activation and multiplication of cells responsible for the inflammation to a certain extent. Patients can expect a significant reduction in arthritis signs and symptoms. It may take up to four weeks until you start to feel an improvement in your symptoms.
Lefumide 10 mg has been prescribed for you alone. Do not give this medicine to anyone, even if their symptoms are the same as yours, as it may cause more harm than good. Swallow the tablet whole with a glass full of water. You can take it before or after consuming food.
If you forget to take a tablet of Lefumide, you should be advised to take it as soon as you remember, unless it is time for you to take your next dose. The patient should be advised not to double up on the next dose to make up for the missed one.
