What is Baricitinib Medication 2 mg or 4 mg?
Baricitinib is a JAK inhibitor that blocks enzymes that are contributing to the inflammation in your joints. It is sold under several brand names, including Olumiant, and is typically paired with methotrexate.
Baricitinib is not the first line of treatment against RA, mainly because there are other, safer drugs that should be considered first. However, if those medicines don’t help with your joint pain, tenderness, and stiffness, your doctor may consider putting you on Baricitinib instead.
This medicine is most often prescribed in 2 mg and 4 mg doses. How much you should take and at what strength will be determined by your doctor. As this medicine puts you at risk for serious side effects, it’s extremely important that you follow dosage instructions carefully.
