Uses

This medication is used to treat a certain inherited disorder (Wilson's disease). This disorder causes too much copper to build up in the liver, brain, and other parts of the body. Trientine works by binding to copper, which helps your body get rid of extra copper. This can decrease symptoms such as problems with speech/swallowing/coordination, tiredness, lack of appetite, abdominal pain, yellowing eyes/skin, fluid buildup in the legs/abdomen, uncontrolled movements, or muscle stiffness.

How to use Clovique 250 Mg Capsule Wilson's Disease Treatment Agents

Take this medication by mouth on an empty stomach, at least 1 hour before meals or 2 hours after meals as directed by your doctor, usually 2 to 4 times daily. Take this medication at least 1 hour apart from any other drug, food, or milk. Swallow the capsules whole with water. Do not open or chew the capsules. The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment.

For the best effect, follow a low-copper diet as directed by your doctor and take this medication regularly. To help you remember, take it at the same times each day.

For the first month of treatment, check your temperature every night and tell your doctor of any fever or rash.

If your doctor directs you to also take an iron supplement, take it at least 2 hours before or after trientine.

Tell your doctor if your condition does not get better or if it gets worse.

If you accidentally come in contact with the capsule contents, wash the area promptly with water to avoid an allergic reaction.
