Expand Galvumet CMI 19 Oct 2018
 
Galvumet is used to treat type 2 diabetes mellitus in people who are already taking vildagliptin and metformin tablets separately, or whose diabetes cannot be controlled by metformin alone.
Galvumet is also used with a sulfonylurea by patients whose blood sugar levels are not adequately controlled when taking only metformin and a sulfonylurea.
Galvumet is also added to insulin in patients when a stable dose of insulin and metformin do not provide adequate blood sugar control.
It is prescribed by your doctor together with diet and exercise.
Galvumet contains two ingredients: vildagliptin, which belongs to a class of medicines called 'islet enhancers', and metformin, which belongs to the 'biguanide' class.
Type 2 diabetes mellitus used to be known as 'non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM)' or 'maturity onset diabetes'.
Type 2 diabetes develops if the body does not produce enough insulin, or where the insulin that your body makes does not work as well as it should. It can also develop if the body produces too much glucagon.
Insulin is a substance which helps to lower the level of sugar in your blood, especially after meals. Glucagon is another substance which triggers the production of sugar by the liver, causing the blood sugar to rise. The pancreas makes both of these substances.
Galvumet helps to control the blood sugar level. It works by making the pancreas produce insulin and less glucagon (effect of vildagliptin) and also by helping the body to make better use of the insulin it produces (effect of metformin).
Your doctor will prescribe Galvumet either alone or in combination with another antidiabetic medicine to replace the antidiabetic medicine(s) you are already taking, where that medicine(s) alone is not enough to control your blood sugar level.
It is important that you continue to follow the diet and/or exercise recommended for you whilst you are on treatment with Galvumet.
Ask your doctor if you have any questions about why this medicine has been prescribed for you.
Your doctor may have prescribed it for another reason.
Galvumet is not a substitute for insulin. It is not used to treat type 1 diabetes (where your body does not produce insulin at all), or diabetic ketoacidosis.
This medicine is only available with a doctor's prescription. It is not addictive.
There is not enough information to recommend this medicine for use in children under 18 years old.

Expand Eloxatin CMI 18 Oct 2018
 
Eloxatin is used to treat cancer of the oesophagus/stomach, large intestine and rectum (colorectal cancer). Eloxatin is used in combination with other anti-cancer drugs; capecitabine, bevacizumab, epirubicin, fluorouracil (FU), and/or folinic acid. The active ingredient in Eloxatin is called oxaliplatin.
Cancer cells are normal cells which have changed so that they grow in an uncontrolled way. Oxaliplatin works by interfering with cancer cell growth. Because of the similarities between cancer cells and normal cells, anti cancer drugs often have unwanted effects on the body.
Your doctors have decided to treat you with Eloxatin because they believe that the benefit of Eloxatin treatment will be greater than the unwanted effects.
Many of the side effects from anti cancer drugs are predictable and can be prevented or lessened. Your doctor and other staff will take all of the precautions needed to reduce the unwanted effects of treatment.
Ask your doctor if you have any questions about why this medicine has been prescribed for you.
Eloxatin is only available on a prescription from your doctor.
