Before you use efudix cream

 

Do not use Efudix Cream if you:

  • are allergic (hypersensitive) to fluorouracil or any other ingredients in this medicine (these are listed in section 6, “Further Information”).
  • are pregnant, think you may be pregnant, or are breast-feeding.
  • are using any medicines known as antiviral nucleosides (e.g. brivudine, sorivudine). These medicines are usually used to treat chickenpox or shingles.
  • Efudix Cream is not for use in anyone under 18 years of age.

 Take special care with Efudix Cream if you:

  • are applying this cream around your eyelids, nose or lips, and avoid contact with the eyes or mouth (see section 3, “How to use Efudix Cream”).
  • have open cuts. Do not use this cream on open cuts as this can lead to too much cream being absorbed into the blood, which very rarely, can cause side effects.
  • have reduced activity/deficiency of the enzyme DPD (dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase).

 

Sunlight may increase the effects of Efudix. This may result in increased skin reactions. To prevent this you must try to stay out of direct sunlight as much as possible while using the cream and must not use a sunlamp or sun bed.

  • Exposure to UV-radiation (e.g) natural sunlight, tanning salon) should be avoided.
  • Closing bandages or dressing may increase inflammatory reactions of the skin.

 

Using other medicines

Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines, including medicines obtained without a prescription. This is very important, as using more than one medicine at the same time can strengthen or weaken the effect of the medicines involved.

 

In particular, tell your doctor if you are using:

  • medicines to treat chickenpox or shingles (brivudine, sorivudine) or have used them in the last 4 weeks. These medicines may increase the possibility of unwanted effects with Efudix Cream.
  • Pregnancy and breast-feeding

Do not use Efudix Cream and tell your doctor if you are pregnant, think you might be pregnant or you are breast-feeding.

  • Driving and using machines
  • It is unlikely that the treatment will have any effect on your ability to drive or use machines.
  • Important information about some of the ingredients of Efudix Cream

 

Efudix Cream contains some ingredients that can cause side effects. These are:

    stearyl alcohol and propylene glycol, which can cause local skin irritations (e.g. contact dermatitis, which is an inflammation of the skin).

  • E218 (methyl parahydroxybenzoate) and E216 (propyl parahydroxybenzoate), which can cause allergic reactions.
  • Do not use Efudix if you are allergic to any of its ingredients.

 

Warning!

  • Take extra care to avoid getting the cream in the eyes, nose or mouth, particularly if you are using the medicine on your face.
  • The cream should not be applied to broken skin or open cuts as it may be absorbed into the bloodstream and could cause side effects.
  • Sunlight can increase the intensity of the skin reactions to Efudix cream. For this reason you should avoid exposing your skin to direct sunlight as much as possible while using the cream. Do not use sunbeds or sunlamps.

Finpecia (Finasteride 1mg Tablets) (SCND001)
Finpecia (Finasteride 1mg Tablets) belongs to a class of medications known as 5-alpha reductase inhibitors, and it is indicated for the treatment of male pattern hair loss (a receding hairline on the top of the scalp). This drug is clinically proven to promote new hair growth and to stop the balding process. It does this by preventing testosterone from being converted into DHT (dihydrotestosterone, a type of hormone that can contribute to baldness by damaging the follicles). DHT can also cause the prostate to become enlarged, which may lead to a poor urine flow and other related symptoms. This condition is called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Taking this drug may help to reduce the size of the prostate in patients affected by this condition, which in turn helps to provide relief from urination problems.

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

Duovir (Lamivudine 150mg and Zidovudine 300mg Tablets) contain 150mg of lamivudine and 300mg of zidovudine. The other variety available, Duovir (Lamivudine 150mg and Zidovudine 300mg Tablets) also contains 150mg of lamivudine and 300mg of zidovudine, as well as 200mg of nevirapine. Your physician will decide the required daily dosage and provide you with the necessary details related to the frequency of administration. It is essential that you fully comply with all directions given by your physician. Do not take more than the correct daily dosage, as this could put you at risk of serious health problems.

 

What does Duovir (Lamivudine 150mg and Zidovudine 300mg Tablets) contain?

Duovir (Lamivudine 150mg and Zidovudine 300mg Tablets) medicine has a combination of the active ingredients lamivudine (150mg) and zidovudine (300mg). Both of these are antiretroviral drugs that are used to treat HIV infection.

Carloc (Carvedilol 12.5mg Tablets) (PVJ0343)
Carloc (Carvedilol 12.5mg Tablets) (also known as Coreg in the US) contain carvedilol, which is a non-selective beta-blocker and acts as a beta1 and beta2 receptor antagonist, with some action as an alpha-receptor antagogist. Carvedilol in Carloc (Carvedilol 12.5mg Tablets) works by blocking the action of chemicals called catecholamines, such as adrenaline and noradrenaline (epinephrine and nor epinephrine), which are released by the adrenal glands in response to nerve stimulation during physical and mental stress. Adrenaline works by stimulating beta-receptors in the heart, which increases heart rate and causes constriction (narrowing) of blood vessels. Carvedilol in Carloc (Carvedilol 12.5mg Tablets) blocks the beta-receptors in the heart, to slow heart rate and reduce the force needed to pump blood around the body, which means that the heart needs less oxygen. This action relieves the pain of angina which is caused by increased workload and lack of oxygen to the heart on exertion. Carvedilol in Carloc (Carvedilol 12.5mg Tablets) also blocks alpha-receptors found in peripheral blood vessel walls, and this causes them to relax and widen (vasodilation), reducing the resistance to blood flow. The combined action of alpha and beta blockade by Carloc (Carvedilol 12.5mg Tablets) reduces the force needed by the heart to pump blood and increases blood flow and oxygen to the heart, while at the same time reducing resistance to blood circulating in peripheral vessels by causing vasodilation, which helps lower blood pressure; as well as helping the heart pump more efficiently, thereby reducing feelings of breathlessness on exertion due to weakened heart muscles as in congestive heart failure.

Tadacip Tablets (PVJ982465)

What is Tadacip Tablets used for?

Tadacip Tablets are used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men, which is inability to achieve or maintain a hard erect penis suitable for sexual activity, due to insufficient blood flow into the penis. Tadacip Tablets relaxes the blood vessels in the penis increasing blood flow and causing an erection, which is the natural response to sexual stimulation. However, Tadacip Tablets will only work if you are sexually aroused.

 

Tadacip Tablets work?

During sexual stimulation nitric oxide is released in the erectile tissue of the penis which activates the enzyme guanylate cyclase. This enzyme increases levels of a chemical called cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP), which relaxes the blood vessels in the penis and allows blood to fill the spongy erectile tissues to cause an erection. Another enzyme called phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) breaks down cGMP preventing blood flow into the penis, which causes loss of an erection. Tadacip Tablets inhibits the action of PDE5 which resolves erectile dysfunction by allowing the natural process of sexual stimulation to activate the cGMP mechanism for achieving and maintaining an erection.

 

Side effects of Tadacip Tablets

  • The most common side effects with Tadacip by Cipla are headache, indigestion, back pain, muscle aches, flushing, and stuffy or runny nose. These side effects usually go away after a few hours. Men who get back pain and muscle aches usually get it 12 to 24 hours after taking this medicine. Back pain and muscle aches usually go away within 2 days. Call your healthcare provider if you get any side effect that bothers you or one that does not go away.
  • Uncommon side effects include an erection that won't go away (priapism). If you get an erection that lasts more than 4 hours, get medical help right away. Priapism must be treated as soon as possible or lasting damage can happen to your penis, including the inability to have erections. Color vision changes, such as seeing a blue tinge (shade) to objects or having difficulty telling the difference between the colors blue and green.
  • In rare instances, men taking PDE5 inhibitors (oral erectile dysfunction medicines, including this medicine) reported a sudden decrease or loss of vision in one or both eyes. It is not possible to determine whether these events are related directly to these medicines, to other factors such as high blood pressure or diabetes, or to a combination of these. If you experience sudden decrease or loss of vision, stop taking PDE5 inhibitors, including this medicine, and call a healthcare provider right away.
  • Sudden loss or decrease in hearing, sometimes with ringing in the ears and dizziness, has been rarely reported in people taking PDE5 inhibitors, including this medicine.

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:

  • are allergic to efavirenz or any ingredients in Efavir (Efavirenz 600mg Tablets)
  • are pregnant or are breastfeeding
  • have liver disease
  • are using Efavir (Efavirenz 600mg Tablets) as a single treatment as it is intended for use only as part of combination therapy

Efavir (Efavirenz 200mg Tablets) (PVJ3258963)

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. 

 

Efavir (Efavirenz 200mg Tablets) work?

Efavir (Efavirenz 200mg 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 200mg 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 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.

Valcivir (Valacyclovir Hydrochloride 500mg Tablets) (PVJ336985245)

Valcivir (Valacyclovir Hydrochloride 500mg Tablets) used for?

Valcivir (Valacyclovir Hydrochloride 500mg Tablets) are used to treat infection infections of the skin and mucous membranes caused by herpes simplex virus, including cold sores (herpes labialis), initial and recurrent episodes of genital herpes in people with a healthy immune system, and shingles (herpes zoster). Valcivir (Valacyclovir Hydrochloride 500mg Tablets) are also used for suppression of recurrent genital herpes infections in people with an active immune system (immunocompetent) and to reduce the transmission of genital herpes to others. In HIV-infected patients who are immunocompromised, Valcivir (Valacyclovir Hydrochloride 500mg Tablets) are used for prevention (prophylaxis) of herpes infections. Valcivir (Valacyclovir Hydrochloride 500mg Tablets) are also used to treat cold sores in children who are at least 12 years old, and to treat chickenpox, caused by the closely related varicella zoster herpes in children who are at least 2 years old.

 

Valcivir (Valacyclovir Hydrochloride 500mg Tablets) work?

Valcivir (Valacyclovir Hydrochloride 500mg Tablets) contain valacyclovir, a prodrug of acyclovir that is more readily absorbed and is converted to acyclovir by the liver. Valacyclovir in Valcivir (Valacyclovir Hydrochloride 500mg Tablets) then works in the same way as acyclovir, as an antiviral agent that is highly active against both types of herpes simplex virus, HSV-I, that causes cold sores and HSV-II that causes genital herpes; and also against the closely related varicella zoster herpes virus that causes chicken pox and shingles. Acyclovir inhibits the action of a viral enzyme (DNA polymerase), blocking viral DNA synthesis without affecting normal cellular processes. This prevents the virus replicating and therefore stops the growth and spread of the virus, relieving symptoms of the infection and helping the body to fight off the infection. Valcivir (Valacyclovir Hydrochloride 500mg Tablets) will not cure a herpes infection, as the virus can lie dormant in infected cells until reactivated when immunity is low by stress, other illness or even exposure to sunlight, causing new infections like cold sores and shingles; but it does reduce pain and help the sores caused by the infection to heal faster.
