Common use

Furosemide is a loop diuretic causing fast and short diuresis. It possesses natriuretic effect and also decreases levels of Cl- in blood, increases excretion of K+, Ca2+, Mg2+. Penetrating into a renal tubule in ascending thick limb of Henle’s loop it blocks re-absorption of Na+ and Cl-. Due to increased excretion of Na+ secondary intensified excretion of water occurs and as well as increased secretion of K+ in distal part of the renal tubule. Simultaneously excretion of Ca2+ and Mg2+ increases. Furosemide is used to treat edema syndrome in patients with chronic heart failure (degree II and III), cirrhosis, diseases of kidneys, acute heart failure (pulmonary edema), brain edema, hypertensive crisis, arterial hypertension and others.

Dosage and direction

Take exactly as it was prescribed by your doctor.

Precautions

Before using Furosemide, consult your doctor if you suffer from kidney disease, liver disease, gout, lupus, diabetes, or an allergy to sulfa drugs. Avoid becoming dehydrated as Furosemide makes you urinate more often. Do not stop taking the drug even if you feel fine as high blood pressure often has no symptoms. Avoid taking the drug if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Contraindications

Hypersensitivity, acute kidney failure with anuria, severe liver failure, liver coma and precoma, stenois of urethra, acute glomerulonephritis, urinary tract obstruction, precoma, hyperglycemic coma, gout, arterial hypotension, heart attack, pancreatitis and others.

Possible side effect

Contact your physician for medical attention if you have signs of allergy or any following conditions: dry mouth, thirst, nausea, vomiting; weakness, drowsiness, restless, or light-headed, fast or uneven heartbeat, muscle pain, less than usual urination or absence of urination, easy bruising or bleeding, red blistering skin rash, hair loss.

Drug interaction

Hearing damage may occur if Furosemide is administered with aminoglycoside antibiotics (gentamicin and others) or Edecrin – another diuretic. Concomitant use of Furosemide and aspirin may cause high blood levels of aspirin and aspirin toxicity. Furosemide is able to reduce excretion of lithium by the kidneys. Sucralfate (Carafate) reduces the action of Furosemide. Intake of Ingestion of Furosemide and Sucralfate should be separated by two hours.

Missed dose

The medication is sometimes administered for single use so you will not need a dosing schedule. If you take Furosemide regularly and forgot to take a dose take it as soon as you remember. Skip the missed dose if it is almost time for the next intake. Resume your regular schedule. Do not compensate the missed dose by taking an extra one.

Overdose

In case of loss of appetite, ringing in ears, severe weakness, dizziness, confusion, lightheadedness, or fainting, seek for immediate doctor’s attention.

Storage

Keep away from children at room temperature in a dry and dark place.

The medication belongs to a class of drugs called calcium channel blockers and decreases trans-membrane calcium ion flux through calcium channels to the myocardiocytes and cells of smooth muscles of coronary and peripheral vessels and arteries. Adalat widens coronary arteries on coronarospasm besides it influences unchangeable vessel segments in spots of their partial stenosis. The medicine prevents coronaspasm by decreasing tonus of smooth muscles of coronary arteries. Adalat increases coronary perfusion and improves supply of miocard by oxygen. Thus the medicine facilitates pumping of blood for a heart and reduces its workload. Adalat is used at hypertension (high blood pressure) and to treat angina.



Dosage and direction

The common dose for Adalat capsules is 10 to 20 mg three times daily. It is important to swallow capsules whole. Extended release tablets should be taken one time a day and the usual daily dose is 30 or 60 mg. On necessity the daily dose can be increased up to 120 mg. The tablets should be swallowed whole, do not beat or cut them in half. Adalat can be taken together with food as well. For rapid relief of hypertensive crisis symptoms single dose of the medicine is 10 mg, if necessary in 30 minutes one more capsule should be taken.



Precautions

Adalat is in the FDA pregnancy category C, which means it is not known for causing damage to an unborn baby. If your age exceeds 65 years, side effects from Adalat are more likely to appear, so consult your doctor who may prescribe your a lower dose of it. Avoid eating grapefruit or drinking grapefruit juice while taking this medication, the fruit is known by its ability to increase the amount of certain medications in your bloodstream.



Contraindications

Please consult a doctor before taking this medicine in case of allergy to Adalat, pregnancy or breast-feeding, state of a cardiogenic shock, simultaneous intake with Rifampicin, acute form of hypotension, presence of ileostomy after proctocolectomy; age under 18 y.o. (effectivness and safety are not determined). The medicine is used carefully in case of cardiac insufficiency, severe aortic stenosis, subaortic stenosis, acute myocardial infarction with left ventricular failure, acute form of bradycardia, hepatic failure, severe cerebrovascular disorders, light and moderate arterial hypotension, stenosis of any gastrointestinal tract segment, advanced age, malignant arterial hypertension and hypovolaemia treated by hemodialysis.



Possible side effect

If any of the following severe adverse reactions occur, stop taking Adalat and contact your doctor or seek emergency medical help: allergy, unusually fast or slow heartbeats, severe dizziness or fainting, psychosis, jaundice, edema of the legs or ankles. Less serious adverse reactions are possible and more likely to happen, if so do not stop taking Adalat but talk to your doctor: headache, fatigue, or tiredness, flushing, insomnia, vivid or abnormal dreams, nausea or constipation or increased urination. These effects may worsen if Adalat is taken with alcohol.



Drug interaction

In rare cases congestive heart failure was noticed to be associated with Adalat, usually in patients already on a beta blocker: propranolol (Inderal), metoprolol (Lopressor), etc. Hypotension on treatmen by Adalat can occur, especially in patients already taking another blood pressure lowering drug. Nifedipine decreases the elimination of digoxin (Lanoxin) by the kidneys which increases digoxin toxicity.



Missed dose

Never take a double dose of this medication. If it is almost time of the next dose just skip the missed portion and continue to take the medicine according to the schedule.



Overdose

If overdose is supposed the condition requires emergency medical attention. Overdose of the medicine may include dizziness, weakness, chest pain, difficulty i breathing, fainting, an unusually fast or slow heartbeat, coma, slurred speech, and confusion.

Common use

Coreg is a non-selective blocker of beta-adrenoreceptors and selective bloacker of alpha-receptors. Nerves of the adrenergic system innervates the heart and release norepinephrine which stimulates the heart's muscle to beat more rapidly and forcefully. Coreg reduces the heart's rate and force of contraction when it blocks such receptors and makes the work of the heart easier. Coreg blocks adrenergic receptors on arteries which relaxes them and causes blood pressure to fall.



Dosage and direction

Coreg is taken twice daily with food since this increases the amount of absorbed drug. Do not stop or change your dose without directions of your physician since it can result in serious cardiac complications (arrhythmias). Continue to take this medication even if you feel fine: probably you need to take blood pressure medications because your illness is life long.



Precautions

Do not take this medication if you are allergic to Coreg, or if you have asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, severe liver disease, a serious heart condition (heart block, sick sinus syndrome, slow heart rate except cases with a pacemaker is used). Warn your surgeon if you are taking Coreg. Do not drink alcohol two our before or after your Coreg intake.



Contraindications

Decompensated heart failure, chronic obstructive lung disease, asthma, bronchitis, cardiogenic shock atrioventricular block (degree II and III), bradicardia, allergy to the components of Coreg, sick sinus syndrome and some other conditions. Cautiousness should be exercised in patients with diabetes, low blood pressure, congestive heart failure, kidney disease, a thyroid disorder problems with circulation (such as Raynaud's syndrome).



Possible side effect

If you experience symptoms of allergy like hives, difficulty breathing, swelling of your face and also low or uneven heartbeats, feeling light-headed, fainting, feeling short of breath, even with mild exertion, swelling of your ankles or fee, nausea, clay-colored stool, jaundice, cold feeling in your hands and feet, contact your doctor and seek for immediate medical attention.



Drug interaction

Due to the ability of Coreg to affect adrenergic system it may mask symptoms of hypoplycemia (tremors and increased heart rate) which are also stipulated by it. Consequently sugar levels in patients with diabetes taking Coreg should be monitored more often. Irregular heart rhythm or an increase in blood pressure may appear when Coreg is used together with Ca+ channel blockers. Coreg may also increase levels of digoxin and while Rifampin decreases concentration of Coreg in blood.



Missed dose

If you missed a dose take it as soon as you remember, but if it is less than four hours before your next dose, just skip the missed dose. Do not try to compensate a missed dose by taking an extra one.



Overdose

If you suspect that you took too much of Coreg and experience uneven heartbeats, shortness of breath, bluish-colored fingernails, dizziness, weakness, fainting, and seizure seek for immediate medical attention.



Storage

The medication should be stored at room temperature 15-30 C (59-86 F) in a light- resistant box.

Common use

Hypotension medication which specifically blocks angiotensin II receptors, decreases the total peripheral resistance, concentration of aldosteron in blood, arterial pressure, pressure in pulmonary circulation, and has a diuretic effect. Angiotensin, a protein, causes blood vessels to constrict, and drives blood pressure up, while Cozaar blocks its receptors and this way prevents high blood pressure. The medication is used to treat hypertension, left ventricular hypertrophy (increase in muscle) and diabetic nephropathy.



Dosage and direction

Cozaar may be taken with or without food once a day or the total daily dose might also be divided for two intakes. Follow all your recommendations of your physician and do not change the prescribed dose.



Precautions

In patients with dehydration (for example those who were treated with high doses of diuretics) arterial hypotensia while in patients with cirrhosis concentration of Cozaar in blood plasma increases considerably. Let your doctor know if you have liver or kidney disease and congestive heart failure. Cozaar increases the level of potassium in the blood. Also inform your doctor if you are taking potassium supplements or using a salt substitute.



Contraindications

Hypersensitivity, pregnancy breastfeeding, infancy, arterial hypotension, hyperpotassemia.



Possible side effect

Diarrhea muscle cramps, dizziness, insomnia, nasal congestion, persistent cough, increased serum potassium, loss of appetite, dry mouth and angioedema. The medication is usually well tolerated but if some side effects develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor about it immediately.



Drug interaction

Cozaar may interact with diuretics that leave potassium in the body here by increasing the risk of hyperpotassemia at concurrent treatment with K+ medications and potassium sparing diuretics. Nizoral is known to decrease activity of Cozaar.



Missed dose

If you missed a dose take it as soon as you remember, but not if it is almost time of the next intake by your schedule. If so skip the missed dose. Do not try to compensate a missed dose by taking an extra one.



Overdose

If you suspect that you took too much of the medication and suppose that due to it heartbeat became extremely slow or rapid and blood pressure lowered considerably seek for immediate medical attention.



Storage

Save Cozaar in a dry place away from sunlight at room temperature.

Common use

Antihypertensive drug, antagonist of angiotensin receptors II. It specifically and irreversibly blocks receptors of angiotensin which leads to diminishing of biological effects of angiotensin II. Angiotensin II effects include vasoconstriction and stimulating influence on excretion of aldosterone and activation of sympathetic nervous system. As a consequence arterial pressure diminishes and the heart does not have to work as hard to pump blood. It does not influence concentration or triglycerides, content of cholesterol, glucose, uric acid in blood plasma and excretion of uric acid with urine.



Dosage and direction

Initial dose is 150 mg and it can be increased up to 300 mg on necessity. In some cases as low chloride diet, treatment with certain diuretics and others initial dose size should be smaller. Avapro is taken once a day preferably at the same time.



Precautions

It should be administered with kidney or liver failure, congestive heart failure, after strong vomit or diarrhea and also during simultaneous treatment with potassium saving diuretics or medications containing potassium. This drug causes serious harm to unborn baby (possibly death) if it is administered and used during the last six months of pregnancy.



Contraindications

Pregnancy, infancy, hypersensitivity to Avapro.



Possible side effect

The most common side effects include diarrhea, abdominal pain or heartburn. In case you experience allergic reaction to the medication (fever, difficult breathing, hives) contact your doctor. Avapro can cause a condition that results in the breakdown of skeletal muscle tissue and then in kidney failure. Also call your doctor if you have muscle pain, tenderness, or weakness especially if you also have vomiting, and dark colored urine, difficult urination.



Drug interaction

No important drug interactions were described for this medication. At simultaneous intake with potassium-saving diuretics level of potassium may increased in blood plasma.



Missed dose

Never take a double dose of this medication. If it is almost time of the next dose just skip the missed portion and continue to take the medicine according to the schedule.



Overdose

Immediate medical help is needed in case of overdose which symptoms include fast or slow heartbeat, dizziness.



Storage

Tablets should be stored at room temperature, 15-30 C (59-86 F).
