Description

Azathioprine (AZA), an immunosuppressive antimetabolite, is available as a tablet for oral administration for the symptomatic treatment of active rheumatoid arthritis (RA). This therapeutic medication also has approval as adjunctive therapy for the prevention of kidney transplant rejection.

Dosage and Side Effects

The recommended dosage for kidney transplant rejection (on behalf of the immunosuppressive regimen employed) is up to 5 mg/kg body weight per day and may be given orally on the first day of therapy. Maintenance dosage should range from 1 to 4 mg/kg body weight daily and must be adjusted as per the clinical needs and haematological tolerance.

The recommended starting dosage for patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is from 1-3 mg/kg body weight per day and should be adjusted, within these limits, depending on the clinical response (which may not be evident for weeks/months) and hematological tolerance.

Azathioprine tablets should be administered at least 1 hour prior to or 3 hours after food/milk. Swallow tablets as a whole through a glass of water. Do not crush, chew, or break the tablets.

The most common side effects of Azathioprine are nausea, fever, fatigue, arthralgias/myalgia, and rash.

Warning and Precautions

  • Azathioprine is contraindicated in those known to be hypersensitive to this drug or any other component of the medicine. Hypersensitivity to 6-MP must alert the prescriber to potential hypersensitivity to Azathioprine.
  • Patients taking treatment with Azathioprine should report promptly any evidence of infection, unexpected bruising or bleeding or other manifestations of bone marrow depression (BMT). Bone marrow suppression is reversible in case azathioprine is withdrawn early enough.
  • Individuals need to be tested for thiopurine methyltransferase (TPMT) activity prior to starting Azathioprine treatment. TPMT testing cannot substitute for CBC monitoring in patients taking this medicine. TPMT genotyping can be considered to identify patients with absent or reduced TPMT activity.
  • Caution is required during the use of azathioprine tablets in individuals with renal impairment or hepatic impairment. Consideration must be given to decreasing the dosage in these patients and haematological response must be carefully monitored.
