Sulfadoxine 500mg + Pyrimethamine 25mg uncoated tablets, bottle pack of 1000

Technical Specifications:
Each uncoated tablets contains Sulfadoxine 500mg + Pyrimethamine 25mg in a ratio of 20:1

Therapeutic class:
Sulfadoxine is a slowly eliminated ultra long acting sulphonamide that competitively inhibits dihydropteroate synthase, the enzyme responsible for the incorporation of Para amino benzoic acid in the synthesis of folic acid.

Pyrimethamine is a diaminopyrimidine that inhibits plasmodial dihydrofolate reductase, thus indirectly blocking the synthesis of parasite nucleaic acids.

Sulfadoxine and Pyrimethamine as a combination works by sequentially blocking the two enzymes involved in the biosynthesis of folinic acid in Plasmodium parasites.

Standard shelf life:
