Olumiant is a medicine used for treating rheumatoid arthritis (a disease causing inflammation of the joints).
It is used in patients with moderate to severe arthritis when standard treatment with disease‑modifying anti‑rheumatic drugs (also known as ‘DMARDs’) has not worked well enough or if patients cannot tolerate them. Olumiant can be used either alone or in combination with the DMARD methotrexate.
Olumiant contains the active substance baricitinib.
