    Synthroid

    • Canonical drug: Levothyroxine
    Synthroid is the brand name used by Abbott Laboratories for levothyroxine sodium (T4, a synthetic thyroid hormone) product. Levothyroxine is the basic T4 thyroid hormone responsible for metabolism. Patients who suffer from hypothyroidism, either for endogenous disease or after radioactive iodine ablation or thyroid resection, require exogenous thyroid hormone, and Synthroid is the most prescribed brand of T4. Synthroid was marketed in 1955, but was not FDA approved at that time as it was considered "generally regarded safe". In the 1990s, in response to various complaints, all levothyroxine preparations were required to undergo the formal FDA approval process. Synthroid was approved by the FDA on 2002-07-24. It should be noted that Synthroid was not the first T4 drug produced for patients, and there are numerous generic versions approved by the Food and Drug Administration, but there is great variation in uniformity of production and regularity of therapeutic action among different T4 drugs. Consequently, many endocrinologists and other prescribers specify a specific thyroid hormone brand for their patients to take because thyroid hormone has a narrow therapeutic index. In the

After the polistirex is dissolved sufficiently, more dextromethorphan is released. Intentionally consuming more than the recommended dosage of Delsym may result in euphoria, lack of coordination, apathy and disorientation.

    An ATNAA (Antidote Treatment Nerve agent autoinjector) is any of a variety of autoinjectors in use with the US Armed Forces. An autoinjector (or auto-injector) is a medical device designed to deliver a single dose of a particular (typically life-saving) drug. Most autoinjectors are spring-loaded syringes. By design, autoinjectors are easy to use and are intended for self-administration by patients. The site of injection depends on the drug loaded, but it typically is administered into the thigh or the buttocks. The injectors were initially designed to overcome the hesitation associated with self-administration of the needle-based drug delivery device. It is the newer delivery vehicle to be used in lieu of the Mark I NAAK. The ATNAA provides Atropine and Pralidoxime chloride in a single delivery system although the two drugs are separate within the device. The use of the device is only to be administered in the extreme case of organophosphate poisoning. The delivery system is designed for use by military personnel only, and is only issued to DOD personnel that are considered to be in immediate danger of a chemical attack or work in a position (such as ordnance disposal) where there

    Cafergot

    Cafergot

    • Canonical drug: Ergotamine/Caffeine
    Cafergot is the proprietary name of a medication consisting of ergotamine tartrate and caffeine. This combination is used for the treatment of vascular headaches, such as migraine headache. Correct timing of use is important. Cafergot is an abortive headache treatment, which prevents the development of the headache, rather than a treatment for an established headache. The medication should be administered at the first sign of headache. There exists some limitations as to the maximum number of tablets that can be taken per day per week. Different sources of drug information may carry different information, and patients are encouraged to ask their pharmacist or prescriber about such details. The causes of migraine are not fully understood, but dilation of blood vessels in the brain may play a part in causing the headache pain. Ergotamine tartrate and caffeine are both vasoconstrictors, substances which act to constrict blood vessels. Because the vasoconstrictive effects of ergotamine and caffeine are not selective for the brain, adverse effects due to systemic vasoconstriction can occur. Cold feet or hands, angina pectoris or dizziness are some examples.

    Condylox is a topical gel used on the skin to treat external genital warts, caused by one form of the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). Each gram contains 5 mg podofilox in a buffered alcoholic gel containing alcohol, glycerin, lactic acid, hydroxypropyl cellulose, sodium lactate, and butylated hydroxytoluene. The gel is applied to warts as pointed out by a doctor. It is applied once in the morning and once in the evening for 3 days, followed by a 4 day rest period. My personal experience, 47-year-old male, is that it takes 3 weeks of this application to "peel" off the growth material; and a few more days for the area to heal; sometimes this is all I need for 6-8 months, other times it lasts no more than a few weeks before regrowth begins, and as such, is frustrating. But it has been effective for me for over 10 years of use and knowledge that I had this condition. My partners (2) have never developed the virus. Application can be immediately followed by burning or itching. Small sores, itching and peeling skin can also follow.

NeutroSpec was approved by the FDA in June 2004 for imaging of patients with symptoms of appendicitis. It consisted of a monoclonal antibody against CD15. The antibody was labeled with technetium-99 so as to be visible on a gamma camera. Since anti-CD15 antibodies bind selectively to Neutrophils it could be used to localize the site of an infection. The FDA received reports from Palatin Technologies of 2 deaths and 15 additional life-threatening adverse events in patients receiving NeutroSpec. These events occurred within minutes of administration of NeutroSpec and included shortness of breath, low blood pressure, and cardiopulmonary arrest. Affected patients required resuscitation with intravenous fluids, blood pressure support, and oxygen. Most, but not all, of the patients who experienced these events had existing cardiac and/or pulmonary conditions that may have placed them at higher risk for these adverse events.

It has sales of nearly £30 million, with its major markets being Spain, India, Brazil, South Africa, Malaysia and Thailand. It is frequently used as a substitute for baking powder. Eno Tagline: "Gets to work in 6 seconds" As of the summer, 2010, GSK made the decision to withdraw Eno from the UK market. (Info from GSK UK marketing on enquiring directly as to the difficulty on purchasing Eno.) At the beginning of the year, they initially withdrew the unique UK 218g jar, replacing it with a European/USA 150g jar, though increasing the price by 18% at the same time. It can also still be found in sachets of 5g, sold in boxes of ten. Stocks are not currently being replaced. Most existing UK stock has an expiry date no later than May 2013. This leaves a major gap in the UK market for a product of this nature as its primary competitor, Andrews, which is a registered trade mark of GlaxoSmithKline contains 2.1g of sucrose per 5ml measure, making it unsuitable for

    Midol is a brand of an over-the-counter drug for menstrual cramping and other effects related to premenstrual syndrome and menstruation. Midol is distributed by Bayer.

    • Canonical drug: Somatropin
    Serostim (recombinant DNA somatropin) is Serono's brand name prescription drug form of synthetic growth hormone, marketed for AIDS wasting. In December 2007, the U.S. District Court of Massachusetts settled a class-action lawsuit that involved Merck Serono and the drug Serostim. The lawsuit claims that Merck Serono encouraged doctors to prescribe Serostim off-label for criteria that were not approved by the FDA. Merck Serono denies these claims and any liability. However, Merck Serono has entered into a settlement "solely to avoid the further expense, inconvenience, burden, and uncertainty of these lawsuits." The settlement will pay consumers of Serostim who paid the full cash amount or a co-payment as part of their medical treatment. http://www.serostimsettlement.com

    Gaviscon

    Gaviscon is a non-prescription medication for the treatment of heartburn and GERD. It is produced and distributed in the UK by Reckitt Benckiser and by GlaxoSmithKline in the US and Canada. It is sold in syrup and tablet formats, similarly to other antacids. Gaviscon is based on a mixture of the buffering agents and neutralizers calcium carbonate and sodium bicarbonate, magnesium carbonate and the gelling agents alginic acid and aluminium hydroxide. When taken by mouth, the combination of the alginic acid and bicarbonate creates a barrier which prevents stomach acid from refluxing back up into the esophagus. If reflux occurs, this protective barrier is the first to contact the esophageal mucosa, instead of gastric contents. The Gaviscon infant variant for infants (≥ 1 years) and young children contains only the gelling agents sodium alginate and magnesium alginate. It is used to help stabilize the stomach contents and reduce reflux and regurgitation, but is not an antacid.

    Actiq

    Actiq

    • Canonical drug: Fentanyl
    Actiq by Cephalon, is a solid formulation of fentanyl citrate on a plastic stick that dissolves slowly in the mouth for absorption across the buccal mucosa. Generically Actiq is a form of oral transmucosal fentanyl citrate (OTFC). In the UK, Fentanyl is a Class A drug under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971. In the Netherlands, Fentanyl is a List I substance of the Opium Law. In the US, Fentanyl is a Schedule II controlled substance per the Controlled Substance Act. Other pharmaceutical preparations consisting of fentanyl are Durogesic and Duragesic (72 hour continuous-release fentanyl patches) and Fentora, a rapidly dissolving fentanyl lozenge which, like Actiq, is administered transmucosally over the buccal mucosa. OTFC is absorbed much as nicotine is absorbed when dipping tobacco is placed in one's mouth between the gum and cheek. An Actiq lozenge contains 2 grams of sugar (8 calories). The status of a sugar-free version, called Actiq-SF, is unclear. Since the release of Fentora—an effervescent buccal fentanyl tablet for breakthrough cancer pain—Cephalon has indefinitely postponed plans to release a sugar free version of Actiq. Approximately 100 times more potent than morphine, Actiq

    Oxycodone/aspirin (trade name Percodan) is a combination drug marketed by Endo Pharmaceuticals. It is a tablet containing a mixture of 325 mg (5 grains) of aspirin and 4.8355 mg of oxycodone HCl (equivalent to 4.3346 mg of oxycodone as the free base). It is used to treat moderate to severe pain. The safety of the combination during pregnancy has not been established, although aspirin is generally contraindicated during pregnancy, and the drug has been placed in pregnancy category B. Inactive ingredients include D&C Yellow 10, FD&C Yellow 6, microcrystalline cellulose, and corn starch. Percodan was first marketed by DuPont Pharmaceuticals and prescribed in the United States in 1950. At one time one of the most widely prescribed painkillers, it has largely been replaced by alternative oxycodone compounds containing paracetamol (acetaminophen, Tylenol) instead of aspirin, such as Percocet. The oxycodone component in the combination is technically 14-hydroxy-7,8-dihydrocodein-6-one, a white odorless, crystalline powder which is synthesized from the opium alkaloid thebaine. Thebaine by itself has no therapeutic value. Oxycodone is metabolized into oxymorphone. Unlike morphine and like

    Zicam is a branded series of products marketed for cold and allergy relief whose original formulations included the element zinc. The Zicam name is derived from a combination of the words "zinc" and "ICAM-1" (the receptor to which a rhinovirus binds in order to infect cells). It is marketed as an "unapproved homeopathic" product. Zicam was invented by Robert S. Davidson and Charles B. Hensley in the mid 1990s and is produced, marketed and sold by Zicam, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Matrixx Initiatives, Inc., an American over-the-counter drug company. In 2009, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advised consumers to avoid intranasal versions of Zicam Cold Remedy because of a risk of damage to the sense of smell, leading the manufacturer to withdraw these versions from the U.S. market. The Zicam brand has been expanded to include non-zinc formulations. The only biologically active ingredients present in Zicam Cold Remedy are slightly diluted zinc acetate (2X = 1/100 dilution) and zinc gluconate (1X = 1/10 dilution); the product's other originally active ingredients have been serially diluted to the point that Zicam should no longer contain any molecules of those

    Emsam (selegiline transdermal system) is the trade name of an antidepressant of the monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) class. Emsam is a transdermal patch containing the MAOI selegiline. Selegiline, in small doses, is most commonly used in the treatment of Parkinson's disease. It is also effective in higher doses for the treatment of major depressive disorder. On February 28, 2006 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved EMSAM for the treatment of major depression. Emsam's development was spearheaded by J. Alexander Bodkin, M.D. , Director of the Clinical Psychopharmacology Research Program at McLean Hospital in Belmont MA, in conjunction with Harvard Medical School. Currently, it is the only MAOI on the market used in the treatment of depression that is absorbed through the skin into the blood stream and thereby to the central nervous system. The patch "is a matrix containing three layers consisting of a backing, an... adhesive drug layer, and a release liner that is placed against the skin." The primary advantage of delivering selegiline in this manner is to bypass the gastrointestinal tract and liver, specifically the small intestine, thereby limiting the

They are indicated for the treatment of tension headaches and muscle contraction headaches. Although not indicated, they are commonly used to treat migraines and other pain related ailments. However, Fioricet (and some other pain medications) are also implicated as causing repeat headaches with over-use. Fioricet is indicated for the treatment of complex and muscle contraction headaches. It is also commonly prescribed for migraines although it is not FDA indicated for this use. The usual adult dose is 1-2 tablets every four hours as needed, not exceeding six tablets in a 24 hour period. Butalbital has generalized depressant effect on central nervous system and, in very high doses, has peripheral effects. Acetaminophen has analgesic and antipyretic effects; its analgesic effects may be mediated through inhibition of prostaglandin synthetase enzyme complex. Caffeine is thought to produce constriction of cerebral blood vessels. Butalbital has a half-life of about 35 hours. Acetaminophen has a half-life of about 1.25 to 3 hours, but may be increased by liver

    Biotene (typeset as biotène) is a dental hygiene product manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline. It comes in a number of forms, including toothpaste, mouthwash and cream. In addition to the active ingredient sodium monofluorophosphate in its toothpastes, all the products contain enzymes including glucose oxidase, lactoferrin, lactoperoxidase and lysozyme. The PBF (plaque biofilm) products also contain the enzymes mutanase and dextranase. Patients with xerostomia (dry mouth) may use Biotène to reduce the rate of recurrence of dental plaque. However, Biotene by itself does not significantly reduce the count of Streptococcus mutans which is the primary initiator of the formation of dental plaque. Biotène products may not be suitable for those with GERD. Though not necessarily indicated on the label, many of the Biotène products contain peppermint oil. Peppermint oil relaxes the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). When the LES is relaxed, acid reflux will increase. Over a prolonged period, use of products which contain mint oil can severely increase GERD pain and esophageal erosion.

    Nicorette

    • Canonical drug: Nicotine
    Nicorette is the brand name of a pharmaceutical preparation that contains nicotine for the treatment of tobacco dependence. Nicorette was the first medicinal preparation to facilitate smoking cessation. Nicorette chewing gum was developed by Ove Fernö at the pharmaceutical company Leo in Helsingborg, Sweden, following an idea from two physicians, Stefan Lichtneckert and Claes Lundgren, at the Institute of Physiology, University of Lund, Sweden. They suggested the development of a pure nicotine product to be used when periods of forced abstinence from smoking cause nicotine withdrawal symptoms; for example, the crew in submarines experience difficulties concentrating and irritation when they are unable to smoke. The nicotine from Nicorette replaces some of the nicotine the smoker previously got from tobacco smoke; this relieves some of the craving and withdrawal symptoms, and allows the ex-smoker to concentrate on overcoming the habitual action of smoking. Nicotine is the addictive component in cigarette smoke and the reason for smoking, but the harm caused by smoking is due to other components in the smoke such as tar, carbon monoxide and other gases.

It contains equal amounts of 75 IU follicle stimulating hormone activity (FSH) and 75 IU luteinizing hormone activity (LH). Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin (hCG) a naturally occurring hormone in postmenopausal urine, is present in Menopur and is the main contributor of the LH activity . The Practice Committee of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine reported: “Compared with earlier crude animal extracts, modern highly purified urinary and recombinant gonadotropin products have clearly superior quality, specific activity, and performance. There are no confirmed differences in safety, purity, or clinical efficacy among the various available urinary or recombinant gonadotropin products.” Overviews of relevant studies have shown that IVF treatment with hMG leads to a higher live birth rate compared to treatment with recombinant FSH In these studies the majority of

    Azor

    • Canonical drug: Amlodipine/Olmesartan
    Azor is the US brand name of an oral antihypertensive medication which combines two antihypertensive agents in a film-coated tablet. It contains amlodipine, a calcium channel blocker, and olmesartan medoxomil (trade name: Benicar), an angiotensin-2 receptor antagonist (ARB or A2A). The patent is held by Daiichi Sankyo Pharmaceuticals. Daiichi Sankyo filed a supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) for Azor with the United States Food and Drug Administration on September 17, 2008. Azor has been studied in clinical trials; one test showed it reduced blood pressure during a 24-hour period and was well tolerated. Azor is available in different dose preparations: 5 mg/20 mg, 10 mg/20 mg,5 mg/40 mg and 10/40 mg's of amlodipine and olmesartan respectively. One investigation (which included doctors employed by Daiichi Sankyo) concluded that "From a pharmacokinetic perspective, the 2 drugs (amlodipine and olmesartan) are well suited to coadministration in a fixed-dose combination." For more information, see listing: For Azor in South Africa, see Alprazolam.

    • Canonical drug: Insulin
    Exubera is the brand name of first formulation of inhalable insulin to receive the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval.It is manufactured by Pfizer in collaboration with Nektar Therapeutics and is licensed for use by both type 1 and type 2 diabetics. However in the UK its use in under the National Health Service "should not be recommended because it could not be proven to be more clinically or cost effective than existing treatments",except under special circumstances. Exubera is considered a short or rapid acting insulin. In clinical studies, Exubera reached peak concentration levels faster than some insulins administered by injection.Thus, this form of insulin would begin working within the body faster than insulin that is injected. Type 1 and 2 diabetics will still need an injection of longer acting insulin to maintain a basal level for a 24 hour period. Exubera works by using the strategy of reducing the particle size of insulin and making it into a dry powder so that it can get absorbed in the lung. It comes in two strengths, which are one and three milligram blisters.These blisters are inserted into an inhaler for use. The insulin is then delivered to the

In 1955, Panadol was introduced to hospitals in the United Kingdom. It was first marketed by Phillips, Scott & Turner, which was acquired by Frederick Stearns & Co, a subsidiary of Sterling Drug Inc. It was advertised as being "gentle on the stomach", since other analgesic agents at the time contained aspirin, a known stomach irritant. Panadol was originally available only by prescription in the UK, but is now available over the counter. In 1988 Sterling Winthrop was acquired by Eastman Kodak which sold the over the counter drug rights to SmithKline Beecham in 1994. Panadol is sold in six forms: Panadol Extra contains caffeine (65 mg) which enhances the analgesic effect of paracetamol, though the efficacy of caffeine as an analgesic adjuvant is the source of some contention.

    Bacitracin

    Bacitracin

    Bacitracin is a mixture of related cyclic polypeptides produced by organisms of the licheniformis group of Bacillus subtilis var Tracy, isolation of which was first reported in 1945. As a toxic and difficult-to-use antibiotic, bacitracin does not work well orally. However, it is very effective topically, and is a common ingredient of eye and skin antibiotic preparations. Its action is on Gram-positive cell walls. It can cause contact dermatitis and cross-reacts with allergic sensitivity to sulfa-drugs. When given intramuscularly, bacitracin's absorption is rapid and complete, but its nephrotoxicity (kidney damage potential) has limited its use to infants only, and then in very specific circumstances. In 2010 it was approved by the US FDA by this route for the very narrow indication of treatment of infants with staphylococcal pneumonia and empyema when due to organisms shown to be susceptible to bacitracin. It can only be used where adequate laboratory facilities are available for checking the drug's concentration in blood. The drug's unique name derives from the fact that it was isolated by John T.

    A comprehensive article about the subgroup of anti-diarrhoeal drugs including Motofen can be found as the article Diphenoxylate. Motofen is the brand name for an antiperistaltic anti-diarrheal medication, containing 1.0 mg difenoxin HCl and 0.025 mg atropine (U.S. Food and Drug Administration: Schedule IV Combination). Atropine is purposely added at 25 micrograms per tablet, or /24 to /40 of the usual therapeutic dose for atropine to minimize the potential of misuse by swallowing large numbers of tablets or preparing them for injection since difenoxin is chemically related to the pethidine-piritramide subgroup of the opioid family, and could theoretically be misused. Although unlikely, physical and mental withdrawal symptoms (from both anticholinergic rebound caused by atropine, and opiate withdrawal caused by the difenoxin) is possible if taken for long periods of time. However, both of these compounds are responsible for the medicinal effects of the medicine (both atropine and difenoxin slow gut movement). This combination medication should not be confused with Lomotil (2.5 mg diphenoxylate and 0.025 mg atropine – a Schedule V Combination), because the active ingredients in the

It is marketed by Swiss-based Novartis Pharmaceuticals and manufactured by Finnish drugmaker Orion Corporation. Stalevo was approved by the FDA in June 2003 to treat adult patients with idiopathic Parkinson’s disease in two scenarios. First, to substitute with equivalent strength of each of the three components for immediate-release carbidopa/levodopa and entacapone previously administered as individual products. Second, to replace immediate-release carbidopa/levodopa therapy (without entacapone) when patients experience the signs and symptoms of end-of-dose "wearing-off" but only for patients taking a total daily dose of levodopa of 600 mg or less and not experiencing dyskinesias. As of 2010 Applications for extending the indication of Stalevo to patients requiring initiation of levodopa therapy have been under review by the European Medicines Agency (EMEA) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), based on the favourable results from FIRST-STEP, a study conducted in North America and Europe by Novartis from 2005 to

Xyrem (Alcover) is also used therapeutically in Italy for treatment of alcohol withdrawal and dependence. Sodium oxybate is the sodium salt of γ-hydroxybutyric acid. Xyrem is designated as an orphan drug, which is a pharmaceutical agent that has been developed specifically to treat a rare medical condition, the condition itself being referred to as an orphan disease. The assignment of orphan status to a disease and to any drugs developed to treat it is a matter of public policy in many countries, and has resulted in medical breakthroughs that may not have otherwise been achieved due to the economics of drug research and development. In the last 20 years efforts have been made to encourage companies to develop orphan drugs.

    • Canonical drug: Soybean oil
    Intralipid is a brand name for the first safe fat emulsion for human use, approved in 1962 in Europe and invented by Professor Arvid Wretlind, Sweden. The FDA initially would not approve the product due to prior experience with another fat emulsion. It was approved in the United States in 1972. It is used as a component of parenteral nutrition for patients who are unable to get nutrition via an oral diet. It is an emulsion of soy bean oil, egg phospholipids and glycerin. It is available in a 10%, 20% and 30% concentration. The 30% concentration is not approved for direct intravenous infusion, but should be mixed with amino acids and dextrose as part of a total nutrient admixture. Intralipid provides essential fatty acids, linoleic acid (LA), an omega-6 fatty acid, alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), an omega-3 fatty acid. Some preparations of the anaesthetic drugs propofol and etomidate (the vehicle for etomidate is propylene glycol) are supplied using Intralipid as a vehicle. Weinberg et al. have published data indicating Intralipid is effective in treating experimental models of severe cardiotoxicity secondary to intravenous overdose of local anaesthetic drugs such as bupivacaine.

    • Canonical drug: Paracetamol
    Tylenol ( /ˈtaɪlənɒl/) is an American brand of drugs advertised for reducing pain, reducing fever, and relieving the symptoms of allergies, cold, cough, and flu. The active ingredient of its original, flagship product, acetaminophen (commonly known by its INN paracetamol elsewhere in the world), is marketed as an analgesic and antipyretic. Like the words "acetaminophen" and "paracetamol", the brand name is derived from the chemical name for the compound, N-acetyl-para-aminophenol (APAP). The brand is owned by McNeil Consumer Healthcare, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson. James Roth, a U.S. gastroenterologist, advocated paracetamol as a gastric-friendly alternative to aspirin, which can irritate the stomach when taken without food. Roth was also principal consultant to McNeil Laboratories. In 1953, McNeil Laboratories introduced Algoson, a preparation containing paracetamol together with sodium butabarbital, a sedative. In 1955, McNeil Laboratories introduced Tylenol Elixir for children, which contained paracetamol as its sole active ingredient. It was originally marketed mainly towards children, but soon came to dominate the North American pain-killer market. There are a number of

    Duragesic and Durogesic ( /ˌdɜrəˈdʒiːzɪk/) are trade names of fentanyl transdermal patches, used for relief of moderate to severe pain. The patches release fentanyl, a potent opioid, slowly through the skin. One patch may provide 72 hours of pain relief. Initial onset of effectiveness after a patch has been applied is typically 8–12 hours under normal conditions; thus, Duragesic patches are often prescribed with another opioid (such as morphine sulfate) to handle breakthrough pain. Duragesic was first approved by the College ter Beoordeling van Geneesmiddelen, the Medicines Evaluation Board in the Netherlands, on 17 July 1995 as 25, 50, 75 and 100 µg/hr formulations after a set of successful clinical trials, and on October 27 2004 the 12 µg/hr formulation was approved as well.

Mederma's marketing claims it can make scars "softer, smoother, and less noticeable". Generic versions are sold under the name Cepalin. One 2006 clinical trial found no statistically significant change in hypertrophic scar appearance from products of this type compared to the standard petrolatum emollient, while a 1999 pilot trial found an onion extract gel less effective than the petrolatum. In 2010 a 54-person trial funded by Merz found that an onion extract cream improved the appearance of stretch marks. Basic research and animal testing suggest the gel could be effective. A 1996 study into the therapeutic values of onion and garlic found that they may act as an anti-inflammatory and bacteriostatic and in 2002, researchers found that Mederma improved collagen organization after injury in rabbits. Allium cepa, the common onion, is the active content of Mederma .

This drug has a unique RT formulation that allows for the rapid disintegration of the sumatriptan, but it does not affect the disintegration of the naproxen sodium component. It targets nerves and blood vessels believed to trigger a migraine and relieves the inflammation that can cause migraine pain. In clinical trials, Treximet provided a significantly greater percentage of patients migraine pain relief at two hours compared to sumatriptan 85 mg or naproxen sodium 500 mg alone. In addition, Treximet provided more patients sustained migraine pain relief from two to 24 hours compared to the individual components. During clinical trials Treximet performed better than placebo and better than the single ingredients by themselves. Treximet provided lasting relief in some cases

    • Canonical drug: Acetaminophen/Aspirin/Caffeine
    Excedrin is an over-the-counter headache pain reliever, typically in the form of tablets or caplets. It contains acetaminophen (paracetamol), aspirin, and caffeine. Until late 2005 it was manufactured by Bristol-Myers Squibb, but in July 2005 it was purchased by (and is now produced by) Novartis, along with other products from BMS's over-the-counter business. Excedrin was one of the top ten selling over-the-counter medicine brands in the United States. The brand became known for advertisements in which Excedrin cured especially unpleasant and excruciating headaches (which were termed in the advertisements as "Excedrin headaches," later called "Excedrin tension headaches"). In 2007, the brand branched out into marketing for other types of pains with the introduction of Excedrin Back & Body, which removed the caffeine from the normal mixture. Over the years, different types of the drug were introduced: As with all medications containing acetaminophen, the use of alcohol with Excedrin carries a significant risk of hepatotoxicity. Additionally, aspirin usage is associated with increased risk of gastrointestinal bleeding. In 2005, Bristol-Myers Squibb announced the sale of its North

    Lamivudine/zidovudine (INNs, trade name Combivir) is a pharmaceutical treatment for HIV infection. It is a fixed dose combination of two antiretroviral drugs, lamivudine (also called 3TC, with the brand name Epivir) and zidovudine (also called AZT, with the brand name Retrovir). The combination of the two drugs has a stronger and more sustained effect than using either drug alone, and assists in reducing pill burden and in aiding compliance with the antiretroviral drug therapy. Both lamivudine and zidovudine are reverse transcriptase inhibitors, which block the action of an enzyme, reverse transcriptase, that the virus requires for reproduction. It reduces the viral load in the body and raises CD4 cell count. It was approved for use in the United States by the Food and Drug Administration on September 26, 1997, making it the thirteenth approved antiretroviral. It is marketed by ViiV Healthcare.

    Premarin is the commercial name for a compound cream of vaginally administered estrogens, consisting primarily of conjugated estrogens. Isolated from mares' urine (PREgnant MARes' urINe), it is manufactured by Wyeth Pharmaceuticals (part of Pfizer since January 2009) and has been marketed since 1942. It is available in oral (0.3/ 0.45/ 0.625/ 0.9/ 1.25 mg), IV, and topical form. The major forms of estrogen in Premarin are estrone (>50%), equilin (15-25%) and equilenin. The estrogens in Premarin are often called "conjugated equine estrogens" (CEE) because the estrogen molecules are generally present with hydrophilic side-groups attached such as sulfate. Thus, estrone sulfate is actually the major active constituent in Premarin. Estrone sulfate is easily absorbed into the blood after Premarin pills are taken by women. Estrone sulfate is converted to estradiol, an active estrogen normally found in women. It is not clear if estrogens such as equilin that are foreign to the human body have effects in women that are significantly different from the estrogens like estradiol that are normally made in the human body. Premarin is a form of hormone replacement therapy. Premarin pills are used

    • Canonical drug: Emtricitabine/Tenofovir
    Tenofovir/emtricitabine, trademark Truvada by Gilead Sciences, is a fixed-dose combination of two antiretroviral drugs used for the treatment of HIV. It consists of 300 milligrams of tenofovir and 200 milligrams of emtricitabine. By combining the two agents into one tablet, it reduces the pill burden and increases compliance with antiretroviral therapy. The drug has been examined for use as a pre-exposure prophylaxis against HIV infection. A Cochrane review found that both tenofovir alone, as well as the tenofovir/emtricitabine combination, significantly decreased the risk of contracting HIV. The Food and Drug Administration approved it for prophylactic use on July 16, 2012. In certain studies, the drug has demonstrated rare side effects including: transient nausea, dizziness, loss of appetite and loose stools. The HEAT study (randomized, double-blind, placebo-matched, multicentre) showed that once-daily emtricitabine/tenofovir plus lopinavir/ritonavir or boosted atazanavir or efavirenz were effective in the initial treatment of patients with HIV-1 infection (with screening plasma HIV-1 RNA levels of ≥1,000,000 copies/mL in ACTG 5202).

    Vicks NyQuil is a brand of over the counter medication intended for the relief of various symptoms of the common cold. Because all of the medications within the NyQuil imprint contain sedating antihistamines, hypnotics, or alcohol, they are intended to be taken before sleep. Its daytime counterpart is DayQuil, which does not contain sedating antihistamines and is intended not to induce drowsiness. Both NyQuil and DayQuil are manufactured by Procter & Gamble. NyQuil is formulated as either liquid or capsules (LiquiCaps). The liquid form was test marketed in 1966 and finally widely introduced in the fall of 1968 (with numerous magazine ads and television commercials), and the capsules were introduced in the late 1980s. The product's slogans have traditionally described the product as "The nighttime, sniffling, sneezing, coughing, aching, best-sleep-you-ever-got-with-a-cold medicine", where the list is slightly tailored to the particular formulation being offered. It is unclear where the name NyQuil originated from, though it appears to be a portmanteau of the words "night" and "tranquil".

    Anacin is the trade name of several analgesics manufactured by Insight Pharmaceuticals. Its flagship product contains acetylsalicylic acid and caffeine. Anacin was invented by William Milton Knight and was first estimated to be used in 1916 as stated in the patent. Anacin is one of the oldest brands of pain relievers in the United States, first beginning sales in the 1930s. Anacin's mascot at the time was Ana Anacin, who was found in a number of ads of this product. It was originally sold by The Anacin Co. ("Pharmaceutical Chemists") in Chicago, Illinois. American Home Products, now known as Wyeth, purchased the manufacturing rights in 1930. Anacin was reportedly their "most popular product." Insight Pharmaceuticals acquired the brand in 2003. In 1939, Anacin sponsored a daytime serial called Our Gal Sunday. Their sponsorship spanned 18 of the program's 23 years on the air. Anacin is one of the earliest and best examples of a concerted television marketing campaign created for them in the late 1950s by Rosser Reeves of the Ted Bates ad agency.

    Daytrana

    • Canonical drug: Methylphenidate
    Daytrana (formerly known as MethylPatch) is a medicinal patch marketed and developed under contract by Noven Pharmaceuticals that was approved in April 2006. In the literature, Daytrana is most commonly referred to as Methylphenidate Transdermal System (MTS). Daytrana is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a once daily treatment of pediatric and adolescent patients—ages 6 to 17—with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. However, off-label prescriptions in older patients are not uncommon. It is mainly prescribed as a second-line treatment for ADHD when traditional oral forms are not well-tolerated or if patients have difficulty with compliance. Noven's original FDA submission of MethylPatch indicated that it should be used for 12 hours; when the FDA rejected the submission they requested evidence that a shorter time period was safe and effective; Noven provided such evidence and Daytrana was approved for the aforementioned indication over a 9 hour period. Unlike with transdermal administration, orally administered methylphenidate is subject to first-pass metabolism, by which the levo-isomer is extensively metabolized. By circumvention of this first-pass

    Noritate is a topical cream usually prescribed for rosacea, a disease of the skin commonly associated with adult acne and most notably frequent to constant flushing of the face around the cheeks and chin area. Noritate contains 1% anti-inflammatory drug metronidazole designed to reduce redness in inflamed areas. While noritate may get rid of some pustules and reduce redness, it has been shown to result in acne in an exceptionally small number of users. The drug information pamphlet claims only 1% of users see ill effects. In many cases, users see no reduction in general redness associated with rosacea and sometimes even a worsening effect. Similar results are reported for Metrogel, which contains the same 1% metronidazole.

    Raltegravir (MK-0518, brand name Isentress) is an antiretroviral drug produced by Merck & Co., used to treat HIV infection. It received approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in October 2007, the first of a new class of HIV drugs, the integrase inhibitors, to receive such approval. In December 2011, it received FDA approval for pediatric use in patients ages 2-18, taken in pill form orally twice a day by prescription with two other antiretroviral medications to form the cocktail (most anti-HIV drugs regimens for adults and children use these cocktails). Raltegravir is available in chewable form but- because the two tablet formulations are not interchangeable- the chewable pills are only approved for use in children two to 11. Older adolescents will use the adult formulation. Raltegravir targets integrase, an HIV enzyme that integrates the viral genetic material into human chromosomes, a critical step in the pathogenesis of HIV. The drug is metabolized away via glucuronidation. Raltegravir is taken orally twice daily. Doses of 200, 400, and 600 mg have been studied.

    See also: Fioricet, a preparation using paracetamol (acetaminophen) instead of aspirin. In the US, Fiorinal is a combination analgesic medication consisting of aspirin, the barbiturate butalbital and caffeine; in other countries the formulation may differ. For example, in Australia Fiorinal consists of paracetamol, codeine phosphate, and the sedative antihistamine doxylamine. Some US formulations also contain the opioid codeine. It is indicated for the treatment of tension headaches and is often used off-label (without approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)) to treat migraines. The mechanism of action is not well understood. Since butalbital is habit-forming, using the US Formulation of Fiorinal daily can lead to dependency. Fiorinal #3 contains: 30 mg codeine, 50 mg butalbital, 40 mg caffeine, and 325 mg aspirin. Other brand names include Fiormor, Fiortal, Fortabs, and Laniroif. In Norberg v.

Its active ingredient is bismuth subsalicylate. The primary symptoms aided by Pepto-Bismol are nausea, heartburn, indigestion, upset stomach, diarrhea, and other temporary discomforts of the stomach and gastrointestinal tract. Pepto-Bismol is made in chewable tablets and swallowable caplets, but is best known for its original formula which is a thick liquid. This original formula is a medium pink color with a strong wintergreen or cherry flavor. Bismuth subsalicylate (the active ingredient in Pepto-Bismol) is used as an antidiarrheal and to treat some other gastro-intestinal diseases (oligodynamic effect, which relates to killing microbes with small doses of heavy metals). The means by which this appears to work is still not well documented.

    Abstral is a formulation of fentanyl citrate available as a sublingual tablet. It dissolves quickly and is absorbed through the sublingual mucosa to provide rapid analgesia. In the UK, Abstral is licensed for the treatment of breakthrough cancer pain (BTcP) in patients with otherwise stable, baseline persistent pain that is managed with conventional opioids. The active constituent of Abstral is fentanyl, which is classified as a controlled Class A drug under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 in the UK. When used under license, fentanyl is a highly lipophilic compound, which is well absorbed sublingually and generally well tolerated. Other pharmaceutical preparations licensed for breakthrough cancer pain in the UK, which contain fentanyl are: Actiq, Effentora, Instanyl and PecFent. Abstral is manufactured and marketed by ProStrakan. Currently, patients receive conventional oral opioids (e.g. morphine) to treat their breakthrough cancer pain episodes. However, the pharmacokinetic profile of conventional opioids does not fit the profile of breakthrough cancer pain.

Ibuprofen was initially introduced as a prescription NSAID used for such conditions as rheumatoid arthritis, in 1969 in the UK and 1974 in the US. Ibuprofen became available without a prescription in the UK in 1983 under the name "Nurofen" and in the US in 1984 under the name "Advil". Ibuprofen was derived from propionic acid by the research arm of Boots Group during the 1960s. It was discovered by Andrew RM Dunlop, with colleagues Stewart Adams, John Nicholson, Vonleigh Simmons, Jeff Wilson and Colin Burrows. When ibuprofen was introduced in the United States in 1974, the recommended dose was 1200–3200 mg/day. This amount is three times the current recommended dose. The use became widespread and it was confirmed by the FDA as one of the safest of the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs); However, concerns about side effects to the liver and stomach had been mounting for some time.

When this was introduced by Beecham, it was originally in a "Double Protection" formula, by combining a "white" fluoride toothpaste for cavity protection and an "aqua" gel for fresh breath, hence the name. It was reformulated into a "Triple Protection" formula ten years later in 1983, when a "red" gel was added for healthy gums; as such, the three stripes - red, white, and aqua, have since become registered trademarks. Since then, advertising has marked this as a "complete toothpaste" and a "whole mouth paste". The slogan for Aquafresh is "three in one protection for your family". Aquafresh has also started a line of toothbrushes for children and adults. In 2004, they introduced the Max-Active brand, which was promoted as the first to fit the size of any tooth. There are also Dragon Tales toothbrushes for children and mouthwash.

It is available in either a gel or creme form. Both forms contain 0.1% adapalene, a retinoid-like compound, as the active ingredient, however a 0.2% product is approved for sale in New Zealand. In June 2007, a higher concentration Differin gel (Adapalene) 0.3% was approved for use in the United States. Differin works by modulating skin cell differentiation and growth and therefore regulating oil production and reducing acne over a long period of time. It has both exfoliating and anti-inflammatory effects. Studies show it is most effective on noninflammatory acne. This drug will give much better results if a benzoyl peroxide wash is used morning and night and benzoyl peroxide lotion is applied in the a.m only along with the differin used in the p.m. However, unlike Retin-A, adapalene has also been shown to retain its efficacy when applied at the same time as benzoyl peroxide due to its more

Therefore, it is incapable of causing influenza. Fluzone is typically administered in a single dose by intramuscular injection; an intradermal injection is also available. It is presented as a 0.25 ml syringe for pediatric use, as a 0.5 ml syringe for adults and children, as a 0.5 ml vial for adults and children, and as a 5 ml vial for adults and children. Fluzone must be refrigerated under temperatures from 2 to 8 °C (36 to 46 °F) and is inactivated by freezing. Fluzone was initially approved in 1980 by the FDA. Fluzone comes in three versions that are thimerosal-free. There is a 0.25 ml prefilled pediatric syringe, a 0.5 ml prefilled syringe, and a 0.5 ml vial. Thimerosal is used only in the 5 ml multi-use vial. The use of Fluzone in infants less than six months of age is not recommended. Immunization with Fluzone may not protect 100% of susceptible individuals. In January 2011 the FDA recognized that 36 children from 6-24 months old had fevers and seizures within a day of the fluzone vaccine.

The product is a 1.8 mm x 3 mm, nearly-white cylindrical granule. The granules are free-flowing, and nearly insoluble in water. The product is nearly dust-free, and has a high level of durability. It is coated in ethylcellulose, a rugged and durable fiber. Mepron is also heat- and pH-tolerant, and has a long shelf life. Dairy-herd milk production may be limited by the amino acid methionine; therefore, the amino acid is included in cattle rations to provide a well-balanced diet. Normally a cow receives 10-20 grams of Mepron per day, depending on performance and ration composition. According to a 2006 study, results "suggest that RPM [rumen-protected methionine] may be needed to improve milk production in Holstein cows with a mean production of 35 kg d-1 milk, fed with [a] diet based on alfalfa and corn silage.
