Aggrenox - the combined antiplatelet agent. There are two active ingredients - acetilsalicylic acid and dipiridamol. Action of such combination is caused by different biochemical mechanisms. Aggrenox is prescribed for secondary prevention of ischemic stroke which proceeds as thrombosis. Medicine is also effective for prevention of transitory ischaemic attack.
Astelin belongs to antihistamines which purpose is to block histamines in the human organism. It’s a spray that deletes nasal congestion, itching, and sneezing. The medicine is effective in case of infection, inflammation, and allergic reaction which result in itching, stuffy, and runny nose. Medics usually prescribe it for adults and children above five (in case of seasonal allergy) and above twelve (in case of vasomotor rhinitis that constricts and dilates a vein, artery, or capillary in the nasal cavity).
Cardizem, derivative benzothiazepine, has anti-anginal, antiarrhytmic and hypotensive effect. It is prescribed at arterial hypertension: after myocardial infarction, at patients with accompanying stenocardia when beta adrenoblockers, are contraindicative at patients with diabetic nephropathy, in cases when ACE inhibitors are contraindicated; angina of effort, Prinzmetal's angina; prevention of a coronary spasm when carrying out a coronary angiography or operation of aortocoronary shunting.
Dipyridamole medicine for treatment and prevention of thrombosis and thromboembolism, prevention of occlusion of stents and aortocoronary shunts. Expands coronary vessels (preferential arterioles) and causes significant increase in volume speed of a blood velocity. Increases the level of oxygen in a venous blood of a coronary sine and its absorption by a myocardium.
The antifungal agent which has activity against dermatophytes, yeasts, dimorphic fungi and eumycetes. It is also active against staphylococci and streptococci. The therapeutical indications of the drug include: mycoses of the gastrointestinal tract, eyes, genital organs, chronic recurrent vaginal candidiasis, dermatomycosis, onychomycosis, Candida, folliculitis, dermatophytosis, systemic fungal infections (blastomycosis, candidiasis, paracoccidioides, coccidioidomycosis, cryptococcosis, histoplasmosis, hromomikoz, sporotrichosis, paronychia, fungal sepsis, fungal pneumonia); leishmaniasis; tinea versicolor, prevention of fungal infections in patients with a high risk of their development. The mechanism of action is inhibition of fungal membrane ergosterol synthesis and the violation of the cell wall permeability.
The drug dilates coronary vessels (mostly arterioles) and causes a significant increase in volumetric blood flow velocity. Increases the content of oxygen in venous blood of coronary sinus and its absorption by myocardium. Promotes the development of collateral coronary circulation, reduction in a systemic vascular resistance, improves microcirculation, has angioprotective action.
