Cystagon

Cysteamine Bitartrate
Cysteamine works by reducing the amount of cystine (an amino acid) in the body. Cysteamine is used to treat nephropathic cystinosis (NEF-roe-PATH-ik SIS-tin-OH-sis), a rare genetic condition that causes a build-up of cystine in the kidneys and other organs. Too much cystine can cause kidney failure or other medical problems. Cysteamine is for use in adults and children, but Cysteamine may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
