Betahistine is diaminoxidase inhibitor - the enzyme inactivating histamine. Stabilizing the histamine which is formed in an organism, betahistine has a histamine-like effect. Drug is effective at peroral taking (by mouth). Drug expands precapillary sphincters of vessels of an inner ear, it improves microcirculation. The main use of betahistine has at Menyer's disease and similar diseases which are followed by dizziness attacks, a sonitus, a hearing impairment, nausea, vomiting.
Haldol antipsychotic remedy, butyrophenone derivative. It has a powerful antipsychotic effect, moderate sedation. The mechanism of antipsychotic action of haloperidol is associated with the blockade of dopamine receptors in the mesocortex and limbic system.
Keppra - antiepileptic drug, the mechanism of action is unclear, it does not alter normal synaptic transmission. Effective in both focal and epilepsy (epileptiform manifestations, photo paroxysmal reaction).
Pirfenex shows anti- fibrosing and anti-inflammatory properties in many systems in vitro and in animal models of pulmonary fibrosis (the fibrosis induced by bleomycin and transplantation). Assigned to adults suffering the idiopatic pulmonary fibrosis.
Trileptal is used to treat simple and complex forms of partial epileptic seizures that have secondary generalization (possibly without it) beginning at the age of one month; generalized tonic-clonic forms of epileptic seizures in patients from two years of age. Reviews about Trileptal have a positive connotation, which allows to determine its effectiveness in use, thanks to patients who have experience of taking the drug.
This medicine makes metabolism better, has cooling,febricide, urinative and nerve-strengthening properties. It is used to treat asthma, gruffness, mental disorders. It reduces anxiety in children, is used for any mental disquiet. Moreover, it is a strong blood-purifying agent with a specific effect in chronic diseases of the skin. The drug helps to create a balance between the left and right hemispheres of the brain. It is considered to be an effective means to restore hearing. .Brahmi perfectly relieves many types of headaches, normalizes cerebral circulation. It affects all tissues-elements except reproductive tissue, mainly blood and nerve tissue.
The medicine is a cardioselective blocker of beta-1-adrenergic receptors. A major risk index for glaucomatous scotoma is an increased tension. When its rate is soaring, the eyes are more damaged. As a consequence, a visual field narrows. Betoptic reduces both increased and usual pressure, regardless of if it occurs with glaucoma, or not; the structure of its activity is connected with a decline in the performance of intraocular fluid. Betaxolol acts after half-an-hour, and the expected result is normally achieved after 2 hours after application.
Colchicine is a means that affects the metabolism of uric acid, which contains the active substance: colchicine. Colchicine tablets are used for the treatment of acute gout attacks and prevention of acute attacks of gout in the initial treatment with allopurinol drugs or drugs that contribute to the excretion of uric acid. A single initial dose of the drug is 1 mg, then-0.5 mg every 2-3 hours until pain relief. This drug is contraindicated for people during pregnancy, breastfeeding, and children.
Coumadin is a drug that promotes blood thinning in the veins. Within a short period of application, anticoagulant reduces viscous blood consistency and lowers the risk of blood clots. The drug is prescribed only after laboratory blood tests when certain symptoms are detected. Independent use of tablets is prohibited, only a doctor may establish the need for taking the drug. Thrombosis is a disease that is characterized by the formation of blood clots. In case of delayed treatment, this disease may cause disorders of oxygen metabolism in the blood and embolism.
The component of Duphalac is Lactulose. It is used as a means to decrease the content of hydrogen nitride in the blood. It is a disaccharide that is not captivated in the digestive tract. Under the action of microorganisms of the colon, the component is cleaved to form organic acids, together with acetic and lactic acids. The effect of acids on the mucous membrane of the colon increases motility. The number of proteolytic bacteria is reduced with the growth in the number of acidophilic Increasing the acidity of the environment slows down the absorption of NH3 from the intestine. It was found that Duphalac facilitates the circulation of ammonia from the vessels into the cavity of the colon.
Mentat improves mental functions by modulating cholinergic neurotransmission and by restoring the activity of the frontal cortical muscarinic and cholinergic receptors. It improves mental activity, memory duration, concentration ability, reduces tension and increases the detention to stress. The drug is aimed to lower the level of tribulin. It also improves the quality of attention and stabilizes behavioral reactions. Mentat provides important assistance in Parkinson's disease. Mentat improves articulation and corrects speech defects. It promotes the mental development of children.
Methotrexate belongs to the group of antimetabolites with cytostatic activity. It inhibits the conversion of dihydrofolic acid into tetrahydrofolic acid. Thymidylic acid and purine synthesis are disrupted, which, in turn, suppresses DNA synthesis and cell division. The maximum absorption of the medicine is observed after 30 to 60 minutes. The drug is metabolized by enzymes of the intestinal microflora, hepatocytes, and other cells.
Synthroid finds use as a hormone-regulating agent for managing low levels of triiodothyronine/thyroxine. It also has a pronounced therapeutic effect on goiters of certain types. Synthroid often accompanies surgeries and other medical means of treating thyroid cancer. The drug compensates for the insufficient production of thyroid hormones by standing in their place as a synthetic substitution. Compensations of this kind help the patient’s body to restitute the normal rate of metabolism. Synthroid also helps to fight obesity due to its ability to remove the initial thyroid gland-related causes as such.
Xalatan is a chemical analog of the hormone prostaglandin. It is a topical agent available in the form of eye drops with a concentration of latanoprost 50 mcg/ml. Its mode of action is similar to the one of its natural equivalent – the drug increases the flow of intraocular fluid from the hypertensive eyeball. As a result, the pressure in the eyeball slowly decreases. Since this symptom frequently accompanies various eye diseases, Xalatan is often prescribed in combination with other medicines. Today, this drug is among the high-priority agents in the treatment of such an ubiquitous disease as glaucoma.
Zyprexa is an antipsychotic drug used mainly to treat severe mental conditions, most notably schizophrenia. This oral medication normalizes the balance of chemical compounds in the brain, especially when used in combination with other antipsychotics. The active ingredient, which is a ligand for serotonin and dopamine receptors, provides also a selective impact on the functioning of the limbic system. The target group of the drug is not limited to the cases with extra severity – the pills may be prescribed for people with moderate mood or nervous conditions as well.
