Daraprim (Pyrimethamine) is a prescription medication used with a sulfonamide to treat a serious parasite infection (toxoplasmosis) of the body, brain, or eye and to prevent toxoplasmosis in people with HIV infection. Daraprim is also used with chloroquine to treat people with acute malaria. The active ingredient in Daraprim is Pyrimethamine. Pyrimethamine belongs to a class of drugs known as antiparasitic, an antimalaria agent. It works by killing parasites. Pyrimethamine is well absorbed, with peak levels between 2 to 6 hours after swallowing the tablet. After that, it is eliminated slowly and has a plasma half-life of approximately 96 hours.

The common side effects of Daraprim are nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, abnormal skin pigmentation, lightheadedness, and insomnia.

Stop using Daraprim and contact your doctor right away if you have any of the serious side effects such as:
• Severe cramps;

Warnings and Interactions

Before taking Pyrimethamine, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or have any other allergies. Daraprim is a tablet and should be taken by mouth, usually once or twice daily or according to your prescription. Take this medication with food to reduce the risk of nausea and vomiting. If you are vomiting continuously, your doctor may lower your dose or direct you to stop taking this medication. It is often recommended to use Daraprim with folic acid to prevent blood problems caused by Pyrimethamine. It would be best to follow your doctor's directions carefully. If you take a "sulfa" medication with Pyrimethamine, drink enough water to avoid kidney problems. This medication works best when the amount of drug in your body is kept at a constant level. The duration you will use the Daraprim tablet depends on the nature of your sickness and response to treatment. You should not increase your dose without your doctor's approval or skip your medication. Skipping or changing your dose without consent from your doctor may cause the number of parasites to increase, make the infection more difficult to treat (resistant), or worsen side effects.

• Anemia, particularly megaloblastic anemia;
