Trientine Hydrochloride: An Alternative Option for Wilson’s DiseaseCreated 1 week ago by anniepery
Wilson’s disease may be effectively treated through a low copper diet and also through chelating agents that are believed to bind the copper for facilitating its excretion from the body. The trientine hydrochloride specifically is a chelating agent approved for the treatment of Wilson’s disease in patients who are no longer tolerant with first-line treatment. Patients may be advised to take trientine hydrochloride 2, 3 or 4 times in a day. The trientine HCL should always be preferred on an empty stomach, at least 60 minutes before meals or 120 minutes after meals, and a minimum of 60 minutes apart from any kind of other medicine, food, or milk.
