CompositionLevofloxacin (500 mg)
SALT INFORMATIONLevofloxacin (500 mg) TYPICAL USAGE Acute sinusitis. Acute exacerbation of chronic bronchitis. Community acquired pneumonia. Urinary tract infections including pyelonephritis. Skin and soft tissue infections. SIDE EFFECTS Stevens johnson syndrome, epidermal necrolysis, tendon rupture, QT prolongation, flatulence, dizziness, diarrhea, anxiety, restlessness, constipation, abdominal pain, confusion, pruritus, hallucination, dyspepsia. DRUG INTERACTION Levofloxacin is known to interact with other drugs like aluminium hydroxide and oxide, cyclosporin A, fenbufen, probenecid, theophylline, warfarin (Na). These interactions are sometimes beneficial and sometimes may pose threats to life. Always consult your physician for the change of dose regimen or an alternative drug of choice that may strictly be required. MECHANISM OF ACTION Levofloxacin inhibits bacterial type II topoisomerases, topoisomerase IV and DNA gyrase. Levofloxacin, like other fluoroquinolones, inhibits the A subunits of DNA gyrase, two subunits encoded by the gyrA gene. This results in strand breakage on a bacterial chromosome, supercoiling, and resealing; DNA replication and transcription is inhibited.
CompositionPovidone Iodine (5%)
SALT INFORMATIONPovidone Iodine (5%) TYPICAL USAGE Vaginal candidiasis. Treatment and prevention of wound infection. Oral hygiene. Oral candidiasis. SIDE EFFECTS Hypersensitivity reactions, renal impairment, hyperthyroidism, hypernatremia, metabolic acidosis, rashes, pruritus, skin irritation, local edema, mucous membrane irritation. DRUG INTERACTION Povidone-Iodine is known to interact with other drugs like chlorhexidine, silver sulphadiazine. Always consult your physician for the change of dose regimen or an alternative drug of choice that may strictly be required. MECHANISM OF ACTION Povidone-iodine is an iodophore with a powerful broad-spectrum germicidal activity against a wide range of bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoa and spores. Povidone-iodine acts by iodinating and oxidizing microbial protoplasm.
CompositionFamotidine (20 mg)
SALT INFORMATIONFamotidine (20 mg) TYPICAL USAGE Pharmaceutical Aid SIDE EFFECTS Blood dyscrasias, hypotension, tachycardia, emesis, restlessness, dizziness, headache, diarrhea, constipation, bradycardia, jaundice, mental confusion, hypotension, renal failure. DRUG INTERACTION Famotidine is known to interact with other drugs like alcohol, ketoconazole, magnesium trisilicate, probenecid, sodium diatrizoate. Always consult your physician for the change of dose regimen or an alternative drug of choice that may strictly be required. MECHANISM OF ACTION Famotidine binds competitively to H2-receptors located on the basolateral membrane of the parietal cell, blocking histamine affects. This competitive inhibition results in reduced basal and nocturnal gastric acid secretion and a reduction in gastric volume, acidity, and amount of gastric acid released in response to stimuli including food, caffeine, insulin, betazole, or pentagastrin.
SALT INFORMATIONCefadroxil (30ml) TYPICAL USAGE Urinary tract infections caused by E-coli, P mirabilis and klebsiella spp. Skin infections caused by staphylococci and/or streptococci. Pharyngitis and tonsilitis causes by Group A Beta-haemolytic streptococci. SIDE EFFECTS Dizziness, anorexia, diarrhea, fever, chills, urticaria, vaginitis, glossitis, dermatitis, paresthesias, bleeding. DRUG INTERACTION Tell your doctor of all prescription and nonprescription medication you may use. Do not start or stop any medicine without doctor or pharmacist approval. MECHANISM OF ACTION Cefadroxil binds to specific penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs) located inside the bacterial cell wall, causing the inhibition of the third and last stage of bacterial cell wall synthesis. Cell lysis is then mediated by bacterial cell wall autolytic enzymes such as autolysins; it is possible that cefadroxil interferes with an autolysin inhibitor.
