Canesten Cream

Canesten Cream is used to treat skin infections such as athlete’s foot, jock itch, ringworm, and other fungal skin infections (candidiasis). Canesten Cream is also used to treat a skin condition known as pityriasis (tinea versicolor), a fungal infection that causes a lightening or darkening of the skin of the neck, chest, arms, or legs. Canesten Cream is an azole antifungal that works by preventing the growth of fungus.

Use Canesten Cream on the skin only. Clean and thoroughly dry the area to be treated. Apply cream to the affected skin, usually twice a day or as directed by your doctor. Dosage and length of treatment depends on the type of infection being treated. Do not apply this more often than prescribed. Your condition will not clear faster, but side effects may be increased. Apply enough medication to cover the affected area and some of the surrounding skin. After applying cream, wash your hands. Do not wrap, cover or bandage the area unless directed to do so by your doctor. Do not apply Canesten Cream in the eyes, nose, mouth, or vagina. Use Canesten Cream regularly in order to get the most benefit from it.

Remember to use it at the same times each day. Continue to use Canesten Cream until the full prescribed amount is finished, even if symptoms disappear after starting Canesten Cream. Stopping the medication too early may allow the fungus to continue to grow, which may result in a relapse of the infection. Inform your doctor if your condition persists after 4 weeks of treatment or worsens at any time.

Side effects are: burning, stinging, swelling, irritation, redness, pimple-like bumps, tenderness, or flaking of the treated skin may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist promptly. If your doctor has directed you to use this medication, remember that he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects.

Many people using Canesten Cream do not have serious side effects. Tell your doctor immediately if any of these unlikely but serious side effects occur: blistering, oozing, open sores. A very serious allergic reaction to Canesten Cream is unlikely, but seek immediate medical attention if it occurs. Symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include: rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), severe dizziness, trouble breathing. This is not a complete list of possible side effects.

Before using Canesten Cream, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or to other azole antifungals such as Econazole, Ketoconazole, or Miconazole; or if you have any other allergies. Canesten Cream may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Canesten Cream, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history. This medication should be used only if clearly needed during pregnancy.

Canesten Cream may be harmful if swallowed. If swallowing is suspected, contact your local poison control center or emergency room immediately.

Anti Hair Loss Cream

Himalaya’s Anti Hair Loss Cream promotes hair growth and controls hair fall by stimulating the active phase of the hair growth cycle. Visible effects can be seen within two weeks. A 40% hair regrowth can be seen in three months and prolonged use for up to six months brings about a 70% reduction in hair loss.

The cream is infused with the extracts of the Butea Gum Tree and Climbing Butea, which prevent the apoptosis of hair follicles and promote hair regeneration. The herbs also induce quick multiplication of hair fiber cells, improve tensile strength and increase hair density.

The cream does not work in cases of Male Pattern Baldness (baldness due to genetic reasons).

Butea Gum Tree, also known as the ‘flame of the forest’, is indigenous to India. The herb has astringent properties and is especially useful in scalp treatments. Climbing Butea strengthens hair from the root, which in turn increases the hair’s tensile strength.

Gently massage Anti Hair Loss Cream into the scalp using your fingertips. Cover the entire scalp, part by part. For best results, leave overnight and rinse in the morning.

Use daily. Recommended twice daily in case of severe hair loss. Suitable for all hair types.

Elocon 0.1% cream

Elocon reduces the actions of chemicals in the body that cause inflammation, redness, and swelling. Elocon cream is used to treat the inflammation and itching caused by a number of skin conditions such as allergic reactions, eczema, and psoriasis. Elocon may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Use Elocon cream exactly as directed on the label, or as it has been prescribed by your doctor. Do not use the medication in larger amounts or for longer than recommended. Elocon can be absorbed through the skin, which may cause steroid side effects throughout the body. Do not cover treated skin areas with a bandage or other covering unless your doctor has told you to. If you are treating the diaper area of a baby, do not use plastic pants or tight-fitting diapers. Covering the skin that is treated with Elocon can increase the amount of medicine your skin absorbs, which may lead to unwanted side effects. Follow your doctor’s instructions.

Do not use Elocon cream on a child without a doctor’s advice. Children are more likely to absorb large amounts of a topical steroid through the skin. Steroid absorption in children may cause unwanted side effects, or a delay in growth with long-term use. Talk with your doctor if you think your child is not growing at a normal rate while using Elocon over a long treatment period. Contact your doctor if your condition does not improve within 2 weeks of using this medicine, or if you develop signs of a bacterial, fungal, or viral skin infection.

Do not use Elocon if you are allergic to mometasone. Before using Elocon cream, tell your doctor if you are allergic to any drugs, or if you have any type of skin infection. Also tell your doctor if you have diabetes. Topical steroid medicines absorbed through the skin may increase the glucose (sugar) levels in your blood or urine.

Elocon may be harmful to an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant during treatment. It is not known whether Elocon passes into breast milk or if it could harm a nursing baby. Do not use Elocon without telling your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby. Do not use Elocon on a child without a doctor’s advice. Children are more likely to absorb large amounts of a topical steroid through the skin. Steroid absorption in children may cause unwanted side effects, or a delay in growth with long-term use. Talk with your doctor if you think your child is not growing at a normal rate while using Elocon over a long treatment period.

Andriol Testocaps

Manufacturer: MSD / Organon, India
Pharmaceutical name: Testosterone Undecanoate
Pack: 30 caps (40 mg)
Andriol Testocaps are used to replace the body’s natural sex hormone testosterone when not enough is made by the body. Testosterone Undecanoate, the active ingredient of Andriol Testocaps, is a white to creamy white crystalline powder.
In men testosterone is produced by the testicles. It is necessary for the normal growth, development and function of the male sex organs and for secondary male sex characteristics. It is necessary for the growth of body hair, the development of bones and muscles, and it stimulates the production of red blood cells. It also makes men’s voices deepen. Andriol Testocaps containing testosterone are used to replace testosterone in a person who has low or no natural testosterone (a condition known as hypogonadism). Because of problems with the pituitary or testis, the production of testosterone by the body decreases.
Treatment of hypogonadal men with Andriol Testocaps results in a clinically significant rise of plasma concentrations of testosterone, dihydrotestosterone and androstenedione, as well as a decrease of SHBG (sex hormone binding globulin). In males with primary (hypergonadotropic) hypogonadism treatment with Andriol Testocaps results in a normalization of gonadotropin levels.
Following oral administration of Andriol Testocaps, an important part of the active substance Testosterone Undecanoate is coabsorbed with the lipophilic solvent from the intestine into the lymphatic system, thus circumventing the firstpass inactivation by the liver. During absorption Testosterone Undecanoate is partly reduced to Dihydrotestosterone Undecanoate. From the lymphatic system it is released into the plasma. In plasma and tissues both testosterone undecanoate and Dihydrotestosterone Undecanoate are hydrolyzed to yield the natural male androgens testosterone and dihydrotestosterone.
Testosterone has moderate anabolic properties but also is a powerful androgenic agent. Andriol Testocaps is taken orally at doses of 25-200 mg per day. However, the majority of bodybuilders do not see any effects at lower doses and even at doses of close to 400 mg/day, the effects are minimal at best.
When taken for more than 4-6 weeks, Andriol Testocaps can only slightly increase body mass and protein anabolism. However, for the body to build muscle one also has to eat a diet rich in calories. Most bodybuilders also take a combination of other hormones at the same time. Because testosterone is converted to estrogen in the fatty tissues, there is always the chance of developing gynecomastia and water retention. To prevent this, most bodybuilders add Arimidex or Tamoxifen during the off cycle.
During Andriol Testocaps intake, the natural body testosterone release is inhibited by feedback mechanism through inhibition of pituitary LH. At large doses, even spermatogenesis can be impaired. To allow for the hypothalamic-pituitary axis to recover, it is highly recommended that Andriol Testocaps be tapered off slowly over a period of a few weeks. Sudden discontinuation of Andriol Testocaps can lead to extreme fatigue, weight loss and susceptibility to fractures.
Andriol Testocaps must be taken orally with the morning and evening meal. The capsules should be taken with some fluid and swallowed whole without chewing. If an uneven number of capsules are to be taken, the greater dose should be taken in the morning. The dosage of Andriol Testocaps should be determined by the physician according to the severity of the symptoms. The initial dose is usually 120-160 mg/day for 2-3 weeks. Subsequent dosage (40-120 mg/day) should be based on the clinical effect obtained in the first weeks of therapy.  In general the dose of Andriol Testocaps should be adjusted according to the response of the individual patient.
The acute oral toxicity of Testosterone Undecanoate is very low. High dosages of Andriol Testocaps may cause gastrointestinal complaints due to the oily solvent contained in the capsule. Treatment may consist of emptying the stomach and supportive measures.
Side effects: acne; changes in your menstrual periods; male-pattern hair growth (such as on the chin or chest); male pattern baldness; enlarged clitoris; or increase or decrease in sex drive.
Less serious testosterone side effects may include: breast swelling in men; headache, anxiety, depressed mood; numbness or tingly feeling; or pain or swelling where the medicine was injected.

Femara

Femara (Letrozole) is an nonsteroidal aromatase inhibitor, primarily used for treating breast cancer in post-menopausal women. It may also be prescribed to treat metastasis in both pre and post-menopausal women, and when treatment with other medications, usually Tamoxifen, is not producing results. It is also occasionally used in fertility treatment, and as a pre-treatment before pregnancy termination.

The majority of Femara users are post-menopausal women at high-risk of, or already suffering from, hormonally-responsive breast cancer. In many cases these women have already undergone treatment with other cancer medications, usually Tamoxifen, when the condition fails to respond or worsens under the other treatments. A pregnancy test is sometimes required before Femara is prescribed.

Hormonally-responsive cancer, as the name implies, responds to hormones like estrogen. In post-menopausal women estrogen is primarily produced in the breasts and in certain parts of the brain. Femara inhibits the production of estrogen in these areas, effectively starving the cancer, or preventing it from growing and spreading. In women at high risk of developing breast cancer, Femara may be an effective preventative measure. Femara is ineffective at combating cancer in pre-menopausal women because estrogen in pre-menopausal women is primarily produced by the ovaries. Femara does not inhibit estrogen production in the ovaries.

Other treatments which impact hormone levels, such as estrogen replacement therapies, estrogen creams, or birth control pills, may greatly interfere with Femara’s effectiveness. For this reason it is important the prescribing physician is aware of all other prescription and non-prescription medications being taken for the duration of treatment.

Femara is a tablet usually taken once daily with a full glass of fluid. Effort should be made to take it around the same time each day. It may be taken with or without food. Dosage and duration of treatment will vary depending on the condition being treated and patient response. It is not unusual for treatment to last 5 years or longer, and for dosage to be adjusted several times during treatment. Treatment frequently begins after 2 to 5 years of treatment with tamoxifen has already occurred. Missed doses should be taken when remembered. If it is near time for the next dose, it may be skipped entirely. Double doses should be avoided.

Patients with known hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients in Femara should not use this medication. This product contains lactose. Side effects are rare, usually mild, and frequently stop after the body adjusts to treatment. If side effects persist, are severe, or worsen, a physician should be consulted: headache, hot flashes, sweating, especially at night, weight gain, fatigue, weakness, or dizziness, stomachache or nausea, swelling in hands, feet or ankles (edema).

Femara may decrease bone density in some women, increasing the risk of bone fractures or breaks. Frequent bone density tests may be requested for high-risk patients. Women taking Femara are often prescribed osteoporosis medication as well.

Patients should read the information provided with this medication for a complete list of possible adverse effects and interactions.
