What is Takhzyro used for?

This medication is used to help prevent severe swelling attacks due to a certain inherited immune disease (hereditary angioedema-HAE). Lanadelumab works by binding to a natural substance made by the body (kallikrein) and blocking its effect. This blocking effect lowers the amount of another natural substance (bradykinin) that causes symptoms during an attack of HAE. Lanadelumab may help decrease symptoms such as abdominal pain/cramps, diarrhea, vomiting, or rapid swelling and pain of the hands, feet, limbs, face, tongue, or throat.
