What is Betaine Anhydrous used for?

This medication is used to treat high levels of a certain important body chemical (homocysteine) due to an inherited disorder (homocystinuria).

This medication works by decreasing blood levels of homocysteine. It does not correct the inherited disorder that causes the disease.
