What is Syprine?

Syprine is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication distributed by Bausch Health US. Syprine is a chelating agent that works by removing heavy metals such as lead, mercury, or copper from the blood.

Wilson’s disease is a genetic defect that causes excess copper to build up in your body. Syprine is used to treat this condition in people who cannot take penicillamine. Unlike penicillamine, Syprine is not recommended in cystinuria or rheumatoid arthritis.

What doses of Syprine are available?

Syprine is available in capsule form, in the following doses: 250 mg.

Syprine should be taken on an empty stomach, at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal. Do not drink milk, eat food, or take any other medications for at least 1 hour after you take Syprine. Do not chew, break, or open the capsule.

Call your doctor if you have symptoms of a fever or a skin rash while taking this medicine. You may need to take your temperature every night for the first month of treatment with Syprine. You may need regular blood and urine tests while using Syprine.

Always speak with a healthcare professional for medical advice or about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

This allows maximum absorption and reduces the chance of inactivation of the drug by metal binding in the gastrointestinal tract

This list is not exhaustive and other prescription drugs may interact with Syprine. Tell your doctor about all other medicines (prescription drugs and over-the-counter, including vitamins, herbal or mineral supplements that you are taking.
