Erlocip (Erlotinib 150mg Tablets) (PVJ103)
Erlocip (Erlotinib 150mg Tablets) is an anti-cancer medication which works by blocking the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR). This helps to inhibit the growth of cancer cells. Indications include first line treatment of metastatic NSCLC (non-small cell lung cancer) and pancreatic cancer. Patients being treated for pancreatic cancer will also be treated with another cancer medicine (gemcitabine). The main ingredient in this drug is classified as a kinase inhibitor. Its mechanism of action is inhibiting the kinase activity of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR). The EGFRs are present on the cell surface and they help the epidermal growth factor (a type of protein which is known to stimulate the growth of cells) attach itself to the cells, resulting in the activation of an enzyme known as tyrosine kinase. This enzyme helps trigger growth in the cancer cells. However, this medicine reversibly inhibits EGFR action, which disrupts the entire chemical process that causes the growth of the cancer cells, thereby preventing the multiplication of the cancer cells. Medical tests may be required by your physician to determine whether or not the cancer is likely to be responsive to treatment with this medicine.

Duovir (Lamivudine 150mg and Zidovudine 300mg Tablets) (PVJ3021345)

Duovir (Lamivudine 150mg and Zidovudine 300mg Tablets)

Duovir (Lamivudine 150mg and Zidovudine 300mg Tablets) is a combination of lamivudine and zidovudine, which belong to the nucleoside analog class of antiretroviral drugs. Each tablet of Duovir (Lamivudine 150mg and Zidovudine 300mg Tablets) contains half of the commonly prescribed daily doses of both lamivudine and zidovudine. With the availability of this combination tablet, patients may be better able to adhere to complex drug treatment regimens, thereby enhancing compliance.

 

What is Duovir (Lamivudine 150mg and Zidovudine 300mg Tablets) used for?

Duovir (Lamivudine 150mg and Zidovudine 300mg Tablets) are prescribed to treat HIV infection in patients with or without acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). HIV directly affects the immune system by impairing the specific immune cells (CD4) that counter infection, so the risk of life-threatening infection increases. Duovir (Lamivudine 150mg and Zidovudine 300mg Tablets) medicine can prevent or slow down the ability of HIV to replicate, lowering the capacity of the virus. This medication functions to increase the number of CD4 cells, providing good strength to the immune system and defying the risk of disease.

 

How does Duovir (Lamivudine 150mg and Zidovudine 300mg Tablets) work?

Duovir (Lamivudine 150mg and Zidovudine 300mg Tablets) contain a combination of two antiretroviral drugs lamivudine and zidovudine, which both belong to class of drugs known as nucleoside analogue reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTI) that are only effective against retroviruses (RNA virus) like HIV. A nucleoside is a building block of DNA that is needed by the virus to replicate, and nucleoside analogues, like lamivudine and zidovudine in Duovir (Lamivudine 150mg and Zidovudine 300mg Tablets), become incorporated into the DNA that is copied from the virus RNA by an enzyme called reverse transcriptase. This blocks the action of reverse transcriptase and terminates the viral DNA chain so that it cannot become integrated into the DNA of the infected immune cell, which means that no more HIV can be produced. Lamivudine is highly synergistic with zidovudine, which means that it increases the effectiveness of zidovudine so that the combination of these two antiretroviral drugs in Duovir (Lamivudine 150mg and Zidovudine 300mg Tablets) slow down the replication of HIV within your body but cannot prevent the spread of the infection to others.

 

Duovir (Lamivudine 150mg and Zidovudine 300mg Tablets) Dosage and Administration

Erectalis Tablets (PVJ98369)

Erectalis Tablets

The effect of Erectalis Tablets, the main active ingredient of Erectalis, is aimed at enhancing the generation of nitric oxide and slowing down the PDE-5 enzyme in the body. Nitric oxide lowers the tone of blood vessels. They relax during sexual arousal and are tightly filled with blood, contributing to a firm, powerful erection. All of this occurs after natural sexual arousal and is perfectly controlled (the risk of uncontrolled erections is estimated at zero). In addition, the production of the enzyme phosphodiesterase of fifth type is retained, which has the opposite effect of nitric oxide – it increases the vascular tone, forcing the blood out and bringing the penis back to a non-erected state. The result of such delay is an erection and, respectively, prolongation of a sexual intercourse.

Erectalis tablets are recommended to be taken in the following cases:

  • If for some reason you cannot achieve an erection at all, or cannot achieve it to a sufficient extent to ensure a full sexual intercourse;
  • If you plan a date, which will require a lot of emotional stress (even if it is positive);
  • If you want to be in a great sexual shape and always be fully alerted regardless of the circumstances;
  • If the age does not allow you to achieve the desired control and feelings; sexual activity is significantly decreased.

 

 

How to take Erectalis 20mg

Erectalis 20 mg pills are swallowed and washed down with water. Note that the maximum dose of the active ingredient for 36 hours is 20 mg, which equals to one pill. Therefore, if you are looking for a mild effect, Erectalis Tablets dosage can be decreased - the pill can be halved or quartered.

Moreover, the drug is quite capable of receiving tiny amounts of alcohol and low-fat food. That is, if your plans include meal before having sex, Erectalis 20 mg can be the right choice, as you won’t have to refuse from pleasure. It should be noted that you will experience more orgasms than usual when taking the drug, largely due to reduced recovery time between sexual acts.

Another remarkable feature of the drug is the fact that it begins to act within as little as 20-30 minutes. Nevertheless, you can take a pill a couple of hours before anticipated sex if you feel that a sexual intercourse may start at any moment.

Make use of Erectalis only after studying the instructions to the drug or a professional consultation. It is necessary to take into account contraindications, and some of them are mentioned below:

  • The medication is not designed to be used by women and individuals under 18;
  • Erectalis should be taken with caution in men older than 65;
  • It should be taken with caution in case of an injury or congenital deformity of the penis;
  • Conjoint treatment by Erectalis and drugs containing nitrates and nitric oxide donators is prohibited;
  • The drug is contraindicated in cases of severe kidney disease, heart, blood vessels and liver, allergy to one or more components of the drug.

Capegard (Capecitabine 500mg Tablets) (PVJ332145)

Capegard (Capecitabine 500mg Tablets)

Capegard (Capecitabine) is a cancer drug which is indicated for colorectal cancer and metastatic breast cancer. Its mechanism of action involves working within the cancer cells to affect their growth. This chemotherapy drug is used for adjuvant treatment for patients affected by Dukes` C colon cancer and as a first line therapy for metastatic colorectal cancer. When used for breast cancer, it may either be used together with other medicines (such as docetaxel) or on its own.

This medicine is classified as an antimetabolite, and it is a prodrug. This means that it is converted into 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) by enzymes in the body. Following this, healthy and tumor cells further convert it into other metabolites (FdUMP and FUTP) that interfere with the process in which DNA, RNA and protein are synthesized. Without DNA, the division and growth of cancerous cells is affected and they are unable to grow properly. This results in their eventual death, allowing for the size of the tumor to be reduced and the growth of the cancer cells stopped.

In addition to attacking cancer cells, this medicine may also affect healthy cells. This could result to side effects. However, due to the fact that the conversion of the prodrug into its active form (5-HU) usually only occurs in the cancerous cells, the risk of side effects is less when compared to other cancer medicines. A significant amount of medical research has been conducted which focused on this medicine`s effects if used for other conditions. These studies examined its effects if used for gastric, pancreatic or esophageal cancer.

 

How is Capegard (Capecitabine 500mg Tablets) used?

Capegard-500 is usually taken twice daily, in the morning and evening or as directed by a doctor. The tablets should be taken within 30 minutes of a meal along with a full glass of water. The usual cycle of using the drug is every day for 2 weeks, then stopped for 1 week. The tablets should be swallowed whole and not split, chewed or crushed. Contact a doctor for the amount of times needed to repeat the cycle as it will depend on the patient's condition and their response to the therapy.

Efavir (Efavirenz 600mg Tablets) (PVJ3987456)

What is Efavir (Efavirenz 600mg Tablets)?

Efavir (Efavirenz 600mg Tablets) containing the active ingredient efavirenz belongs to a class of medications called non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs). The medication works by decreasing the amount of HIV in the body and preventing the cells from multiplying to allow the immune system to work better. It must be used along with other medications to decrease the chance of developing acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and HIV related illnesses such as serious infections or cancer.

How does Efavir (Efavirenz 600mg Tablets) work?

Efavir (Efavirenz 600mg Tablets) (also known as Sustiva) contain efavirenz, a non-nucleoside analogue reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI), which is only effective against RNA viruses (retroviruses) like Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). It works by inhibiting the action of the viral-specific enzyme reverse transcriptase (RT), which is needed for the virus to be able to replicate. Retroviruses convert RNA to DNA, which is then integrated into the DNA of infected immune cells so that the virus can replicate. Efavirenz in Efavir (Efavirenz 600mg Tablets) acts by binding to a specific site on the RT enzyme and blocks its action in a manner that is noncompetitive with nucleosides (precursors to the building blocks of DNA and RNA), thereby preventing the conversion of viral RNA to DNA. This action prevents the integration of virus into the DNA of the infected CD4+ immune cell, which inhibits the replication of HIV so that no more virus can be produced; and this reduces the viral load (amount of virus). Efavir (Efavirenz 600mg Tablets) slow down the replication of HIV within your body but does not kill the virus already incorporated in the CD4+ cells or prevent the spread of the infection to others.

 

When should Efavir (Efavirenz 600mg Tablets) not be used?

You should not use Efavir (Efavirenz 600mg Tablets) if you:

Efavir (Efavirenz 200mg Tablets)

The main active ingredient is Efavir (Efavirenz 200mg Tablets), Non-nucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitors, used actively against HIV or AIDS virus. This medicine is quite effective to reduce the discomfort and severity of AIDS and it is a very popular part of antiretroviral therapy.

 

Efavir (Efavirenz 200mg Tablets) used for?

Efavir (Efavirenz 200mg Tablets) (also known as Sustiva) are used with other HIV medications as part of combination therapy for the treatment of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection in adults and children three years of age or older.  Efavir (Efavirenz 200mg Tablets) must not be used alone as the virus can develop resistance if used as monotherapy and Efavir (Efavirenz 200mg Tablets) is, therefore, combined with two other drugs that have a different mechanism of action.  This treatment regime is known as highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) and is designed to minimise the ability of the virus to multiply and help prevent development of viral resistance to treatment.  HIV impairs the immune system by attacking specific immune cells called CD4+ cells that are involved in fighting infection and this can lead to opportunistic life-threatening infection (infections that would not normally be harmful).  Also if too many CD4+ cells are destroyed this can result in acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS).  Efavir (Efavirenz 200mg Tablets) slows down the ability of HIV to replicate and spread, which keeps the amount virus down to a low level (reduces viral load) and this results in an increase in CD4+ cell numbers, so that the immune system can recover, reducing the risk of disease progression.

Duprost (Dutasteride 0.5mg Capsules) (PVJ331647982)

What is Duprost (Dutasteride 0.5mg Capsules)?

Duprost (Dutasteride 0.5mg Capsules) containing the active ingredient dutasteride belongs to a class of medications called 5 alpha reductase inhibitors. The medication works by preventing the conversion of the hormone testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the prostate. It can be used alone or with other medications to treat symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) such as acute urinary retention, a weak stream and the need to urinate frequently or urgently. It may also decrease the risk of needing prostate surgery in the future.

 

Duprost (Dutasteride 0.5mg Capsules) Uses

Duprost (Dutasteride 0.5mg Capsules) is used as a hair loss treatment for conditions such as male pattern baldness, also known as alopecia, as well as a treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate). It is manufactured by Cipla Pharmaceuticals. The main ingredient inhibits DHT. Duprost (Dutasteride 0.5mg Capsules) shrinks the enlarged prostate over time and brings relief from the symptoms commonly associated with BPH.

 

Duprost (Dutasteride 0.5mg Capsules)  work?

Duprost (Dutasteride 0.5mg Capsules) contain dutasteride that specifically inhibits the action of both forms (type I and type II) of the enzyme 5α-reductase, that convert the male hormone testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the skin and the liver.  DHT is the androgen primarily responsible for development and growth of the prostate gland.  DHT also causes benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) which is when the prostate becomes enlarged.  Duprost (Dutasteride 0.5mg Capsules) reduce the levels of DHT in the blood, so that prostate growth is no longer stimulated in men with BPH allowing the enlarged prostate to shrink. DHT, which is also found in hair follicles, is the androgen responsible for hair loss, as it causes hair follicles in the scalp to gradually shrink producing smaller and thinner hairs, which eventually do not emerge from the follicle.  Duprost (Dutasteride 0.5mg Capsules) reverses the balding process as it blocks the build up of DHT in the hair follicles of the scalp, allowing the hair to grow normally.

Tenvir-EM(Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate300/Emtricitabine200) (PVJ96655)

What is Tenvir-EM (Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate 300mg, Emtricitabine 200mg Tablets)?

Tenvir-EM (Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate 300mg, Emtricitabine 200mg Tablets) containing the 2 active ingredients tenofovir disoproxil fumarate and emtricitabine is considered a nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs) type of medication. The medication works by controlling and preventing the HIV cells from multiplying in the body to help the immune system work better. It should be used in combination with other medications to lower the chance of suffering from HIV complications and slowing the progression of the disease from HIV to AIDS. Using more than 1 type of medication can prevent the body from becoming immune to the treatment.

 

What is Tenvir-EM (Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate 300mg, Emtricitabine 200mg Tablets) used for?

Tenvir-EM (Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate 300mg, Emtricitabine 200mg Tablets) are a fixed dose combination treatment for Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection in adults over age 18. Tenvir-EM (Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate 300mg, Emtricitabine 200mg Tablets) are used combination with other medications that have a different mechanism of action to the components in Tenvir-EM (Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate 300mg, Emtricitabine 200mg Tablets), and are used to treat patients with HIV infection who have either already received treatment with other medications for HIV or as first line therapy for treatment-inexperienced patients. HIV impairs the immune system by attacking specific immune cells called CD4+ cells that are involved in fighting infection and this can lead to opportunistic life-threatening infection (infections that would not normally be harmful); also if too many CD4+ cells are destroyed this can result in acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). Tenvir-EM (Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate 300mg, Emtricitabine 200mg Tablets) prevent or slow down the ability of HIV to replicate and spread, which keeps the amount virus down to a low level and this results in an increase in CD4 cell numbers, so that the immune system can recover, reducing the risk of disease progression.

 How does Tenvir-EM (Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate 300mg, Emtricitabine 200mg Tablets) work?

Tenvir-EM (Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate 300mg, Emtricitabine 200mg Tablets) contain a combination of two antiretroviral drugs, emtricitabine and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate, which are only effective against RNA viruses (retroviruses) like Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). These drugs each work by inhibiting the action of the viral-specific enzyme reverse transcriptase (RT), which is needed for the virus to be able to replicate. Retroviruses convert RNA to DNA, which is then integrated into the DNA of infected immune cells so that the virus can replicate. Emtricitabine and tenofovir disoproxil fumarate are both nucleoside analogue reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTI), which means that they block the action of RT by competing with one of the nucleosides needed to transcribe the viral RNA into DNA, becoming incorporated into the chain of newly synthesized viral DNA and preventing it from growing (chain termination). Emtricitabine is an analogue of cytidine and tenofovir is an analogue of adenosine. The combined action of these two antiiretroviral drugs in Tenvir-EM (Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate 300mg, Emtricitabine 200mg Tablets) prevents the integration of the virus into the DNA of the infected CD4+ immune cell, which inhibits the replication of HIV so that no more virus can be produced and this reduces the viral load (amount of virus). Tenvir-EM (Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate 300mg, Emtricitabine 200mg Tablets) slow down the replication of HIV within your body but does not kill the virus already incorporated in the CD4+ cells or prevent the spread of the infection to others.
