USES OF LENALID CAPSULE

BENEFITS OF LENALID CAPSULE

In Multiple myeloma

If you have multiple myeloma, your body is destroying bone faster than it is being replaced. This makes bones weak and painful and more likely to break. Lenalid 5mg Capsule may be prescribed along with other cancer treatments such as chemotherapy. It is an important part of your treatment and increases the survival rate of people with multiple myeloma. This medicine will kill the cancerous cells and prevent their further growth as well as spread to other parts of the body. Follow your doctor’s instructions carefully to get the most benefit. Supplements of calcium and Vitamin D3 are also effective and may be prescribed if you do not have high blood calcium levels.

In Lepra reaction

Lepra reactions are complicated inflammatory reactions that may occur before, during or after the treatment for leprosy, a serious bacterial skin disease. These reactions increase nerve damage and worsen disability in leprosy patients. Therefore lepra reactions need treatment with medicines such as Lenalid 5mg Capsule in order to stimulate the immune system and aid in recovery. This medicine will also prevent further damage due to lepra reactions. Take it as prescribed by the doctor to get the most benefit.
