Expand Feiba-NF CMI 15 Aug 2018
 
FEIBA NF is used for the treatment and prevention of bleeding in haemophilia A and B patients who have developed inhibitors (antibodies) against coagulation Factor VIII (FVIII), and Factor IX (FIX) respectively.
It is possible that your doctor may give you FEIBA NF for another reason.
Ask your doctor if you have any questions about why you are being given FEIBA NF
 

How does FEIBA NF work

Under normal physiological conditions, FVIII and FIX are essential for blood clotting and therefore the control of bleeding. Individuals with haemophilia A have decreased FVIII in their blood circulation, and individuals with haemophilia B have decreased levels of FIX. These deficiencies may lead to heavy bleeding into joints, muscles or internal organs, either spontaneously or as a result of accidental or surgical trauma.
FVIII and FIX replacement therapy have been successfully used for the treatment of haemophilia A and haemophilia B. However, some haemophilia A and haemophilia B patients develop antibodies against FVIII and FIX, respectively, in the course of their treatment, leading to replacement therapy becoming ineffective. FEIBA NF can bypass the effects of these antibodies, thus normalising the blood clotting process.
FEIBA NF is a mixture of coagulation Factors that converts pro-thrombin to thrombin in the coagulation pathway without the need for FVIII or FIX. Factor VII is present in FEIBA NF mainly in the activated form, and Factors II, IX, and X are present mainly in the non-activated form. FEIBA stands for Factor Eight Inhibitor Bypassing Activity.

ZOCOR helps to lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
ZOCOR is used in people who have coronary heart disease (CHD) or who are at high risk of CHD (for example, if they have diabetes, a history of stroke, or other blood vessel disease).
ZOCOR may be used in these people, regardless of their cholesterol level to:
help prolong life by reducing the risk of a heart attack
reduce the risk of stroke
reduce the need for surgery to increase blood flow to the heart
reduce the need for hospitalisation due to angina.

Cholesterol

Everyone has cholesterol and triglycerides in their blood. They are types of blood fat needed by the body for many things, including building cell walls, making bile acids (which help to digest food) and certain hormones. However, too much cholesterol can be a problem.
Your body makes cholesterol, but it also comes from food.
Normally the body balances the cholesterol it makes with the cholesterol it gets from food. This means if more cholesterol comes from food, less is made by the body. However, if you eat a diet high in fat, your body may not keep this balance and your cholesterol levels rise.
High cholesterol is more likely to occur with certain diseases or if you have a family history of high cholesterol.
When you have high levels of cholesterol, it may 'stick' to the inside of your blood vessels instead of being carried to the parts of the body where it is needed. Over time, this can form hard areas, called plaque, on the walls of blood vessels, making it more difficult for the blood to flow. This blocking of your blood vessels can lead to coronary heart disease (such as heart attack and angina), and stroke.
In people with CHD, ZOCOR may slow down the hardening of blood vessels and reduce the risk of developing new plaques.
There are different types of cholesterol, called LDL and HDL cholesterol. LDL cholesterol is the 'bad' cholesterol that can block your blood vessels. HDL cholesterol, on the other hand, is the 'good' cholesterol that is thought to remove the bad cholesterol from the blood vessels.

Triglycerides

Triglycerides are an energy source for the body. However, as with cholesterol, too much triglycerides can be a problem.

How ZOCOR works

ZOCOR belongs to a group of medicines known as HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors. It works by reducing the amount of cholesterol made by the liver. In terms of good and bad cholesterol, ZOCOR reduces the bad cholesterol and raises the good cholesterol.
ZOCOR does not reduce the cholesterol and triglycerides that come from fat in food.
Therefore, when you are taking ZOCOR, you also need to follow a low fat diet and other measures, such as exercise and weight control.
In most people, there are no symptoms of high cholesterol or triglycerides. Your doctor can measure your cholesterol and triglycerides with a simple blood test.
Safety and effectiveness have been studied in 10-17 year old boys and in girls, who had started their menstrual period at least one year before (see How to take ZOCOR). ZOCOR has not been studied in children under the age of 10 years. For more information, talk to your doctor.
Your doctor may have prescribed ZOCOR for another reason. Ask your doctor if you have any questions about why ZOCOR has been prescribed for you.
ZOCOR is not addictive.

Expand Proquad CMI 15 Aug 2018
 
ProQuad is a vaccine used to help protect people from getting measles, mumps, rubella (German measles) and chicken pox (varicella). It can be given to children aged 12 months to 12 years of age.
Protection against these infections is important as they can cause serious problems in some people.
Measles is a serious disease that causes a high fever (temperature), runny nose, cough, conjunctivitis and a rash. It usually lasts for about 1 to 2 weeks. It is very easily passed from one person to another in the tiny droplets of moisture which are expelled during coughing or sneezing. One out of every 10 children who catch measles will also have an ear infection or pneumonia. On rare occasions, measles can also cause an infection of the brain that could lead to seizures, hearing loss, mental retardation, and even death. Babies and adults who catch measles are often much sicker for a longer time or are more likely to die than school children and teenagers who catch measles.
Mumps causes fever, headache, and swollen, painful glands under the jaw (salivary glands) and usually lasts several days. It is easily passed from one person to another by the tiny droplets of moisture expelled during coughing or sneezing. Mumps can sometimes be a very serious disease, causing a mild inflammation of the coverings of the brain and spinal cord (meningitis) in about one person in every 10 who catch it. About one out of every 4 teenage or adult males with mumps will have a painful swelling of the testicles for several days. This does not usually affect their ability to father children, but can cause sterility in rare cases. Teenagers and adults, especially males, who catch mumps are often much sicker and more likely to suffer longer than children do.
Rubella is usually a mild disease that causes a mild fever, swollen glands in the neck, pain and swelling in the joints, and a rash that lasts for 2 or 3 days. Rubella is very dangerous if a pregnant woman catches it. Pregnant women who catch rubella can have babies who are stillborn, or have heart disease, blindness, deafness, or problems with learning. Rubella is also spread to others in the tiny droplets of moisture expelled during coughing or sneezing.
Chickenpox is an infectious disease caused by the varicella-zoster virus, or otherwise known as varicella virus. It occurs in millions of people around the world each year, most often in children 5 to 9 years of age. Chickenpox is easily passed from one person to another. It is commonly spread from person to person through the air by sneezing or coughing. Once a person is infected, it usually takes about 2 to 3 weeks before symptoms of the infection start.
Symptoms of chickenpox include mild headache, moderate fever and general discomfort. These are followed by a rash of itchy, little red spots which usually start on the chest, stomach or back, but can appear anywhere on the body. There may be only a few spots or groups of spots, or even hundreds of spots that develop over the next 3 to 5 days. The spots will change into clear blisters filled with fluid which then become cloudy, break open, dry, scab and heal, usually within 5 to 20 days.
Although chickenpox is generally a fairly harmless infection, it may be associated with serious complications and/or rarely death. In children, the most common complications are bacterial skin infections. Less frequent but very serious complications include pneumonia, inflammation of the brain (encephalitis), Reye Syndrome (which causes brain and liver damage), and death. Severe disease and serious complications are more likely to occur in teenagers and adults.
ProQuad contains weakened strains of living measles, mumps, rubella and varicella viruses. These strains of live viruses cause either mild or no symptoms of infection.
When injected the vaccine causes the body to produce its own protection by making disease-fighting substances (antibodies) against these infections.
If a vaccinated child comes into contact with measles, mumps, rubella or varicella virus, the body is usually ready, and produces antibodies to destroy the virus. However, as with all vaccines, 100% protection against measles, mumps, rubella and chickenpox cannot be guaranteed. Also it may take up to 4-6 weeks for maximum protection to develop, so occasionally infections may occur during this time.
It is not known whether ProQuad will prevent measles, mumps, rubella or chickenpox if it is given after you have been exposed to the natural measles, mumps, rubella or varicella virus. Therefore, vaccination before exposure is the best way to help protect against infection and possible serious complications.
Only one injection of ProQuad is needed to help protect against chickenpox in children aged 12 months through 12 years.
The chance of a severe reaction from ProQuad is very small, but the risks from not being vaccinated are very serious.

Expand Repatha CMI 15 Aug 2018
 
Repatha is used with other cholesterol lowering medicines in adults with heart disease to reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke, and certain heart procedures to restore blood flow to the heart. Risk factors of heart disease include a history of heart attack, stroke or blood vessel disease.
Repatha is used in adults who cannot control their cholesterol levels by cholesterol lowering diet and exercise. You should stay on your cholesterol lowering diet and exercise as directed by your doctor while taking this medicine.
Repatha contains the active substance evolocumab, which is a protein (human monoclonal antibody) that lowers cholesterol.
Cholesterol is one of several fatty substances found in the bloodstream. Your total cholesterol is made up mainly of Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) and High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol.
Repatha lowers LDL cholesterol and triglycerides. It can raise your HDL cholesterol as well.
LDL cholesterol can build up in the walls of your arteries forming plaque. Eventually this plaque build-up can lead to a narrowing of the arteries. This narrowing can slow or block blood flow to vital organs such as the heart and brain. This blocking of blood flow can result in a heart attack or stroke and can cause other health problems.
HDL cholesterol helps to keep LDL cholesterol from building up in the arteries and protects against heart disease.
Triglycerides are another form of fat in your blood that may increase your risk for heart disease.
Repatha can be used with other cholesterol lowering medicines in adults to treat high cholesterol. When a statin cannot be used or does not work well, Repatha can be used alone or together with other cholesterol lowering medicines.
Repatha can be used with other cholesterol lowering medicines for people 12 and older who have high cholesterol because of a condition that runs in their family (homozygous familial hypercholesterolaemia).
Ask your doctor if you have any questions about why this medicine has been prescribed for you.
This medicine is available only with a doctor's prescription.

The researchers stopped the study after 5 years when it was determined the risks were greater than the benefits in this group.
This Women's Health Initiative also indicated increased risk of stroke, and blood clots in the legs or lungs in women receiving treatment with a product containing conjugated estrogens 0.625 mg alone. The researchers stopped the study after 7 years when it was determined the risks were greater than benefit in this group.
The Women's Health Initiative Memory Study indicated increased risk of dementia in women aged 65 years or older taking conjugated estrogens and MPA. Increased risk of dementia was also reported in women taking conjugated estrogens alone. There are no comparable data currently available for other doses of conjugated estrogens and MPA or other combinations of estrogens and progestogens. Therefore, you should assume the risks will be similar for other medicines containing estrogen and progestogen combinations.
Talk regularly with your doctor about whether you still need treatment with Zumenon.
Treatment with estrogens, with or without progestogens should be used at the lowest effective dose and for the shortest period of time.

What is high cholesterol

Cholesterol is one of several fatty substances found in the bloodstream. Your total cholesterol is made up mainly of LDL and HDL cholesterol.
LDL cholesterol is often called "bad" cholesterol because it can build up in the walls of your arteries forming plaque. Eventually this plaque build-up can lead to a narrowing of the arteries. This narrowing can slow or block blood flow to vital organs such as the heart and brain. This blocking of blood flow can result in a heart attack or stroke.
HDL cholesterol is often called "good" cholesterol because it helps keep the bad cholesterol from building up in the arteries and protects against heart disease.

How ROSUZET COMPOSITE PACK works

ROSUZET COMPOSITE PACK is a combination pack, which contains two different medicines. One is Ezetrol (ezetimibe) and the other is rosuvastatin (rosuvastatin calcium). ROSUZET COMPOSITE PACK reduces elevated total-cholesterol, LDL ('bad') cholesterol and increases HDL ('good') cholesterol.
