LAMIVUDINE ALPHAPHARM tablets contain lamivudine which belongs to a group of medicines called antivirals.
Lamivudine is used together with other antivirals to slow down the progression of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, which can lead to Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) and other related illnesses (e.g. AIDS-related Complex or ARC).
Lamivudine does not cure AIDS or kill the HIV virus, but prevents further damage to the immune system by stopping production of new viruses.
Lamivudine does not reduce the risk of passing the infection to others. You will still be able to pass on the HIV virus by sexual activity or by contamination with infected blood. You should still use proper precautions.
While taking LAMIVUDINE ALPHAPHARM tablets and/or any other therapy for HIV disease, you may continue to develop other infections and other complications of HIV infection. You should keep in regular contact with the doctor who is looking after you.
LAMIVUDINE ALPHAPHARM tablets are not addictive.

Expand Praluent CMI 22 Jan 2020
 
Praluent contains the active substance alirocumab, a protein produced in Chinese hamster ovary cells.
Praluent is used with other cholesterol lowering medicines to treat high levels of cholesterol in the blood.
Cholesterol is one of several fatty substances found in the bloodstream. Your total cholesterol is made up of mainly of Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) and High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol. Praluent reduces LDL cholesterol.
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.
Praluent reduces the risk of heart attack, stroke, and chest pain that may be caused by too little blood and oxygen getting to the heart (angina), in adults with cardiovascular disease and high cholesterol levels in their blood.
Praluent is used in adults who cannot reduce their cholesterol levels by cholesterol lowering diet and exercise.
Praluent should be used with other lipid lowering medicines such as statins to treat high cholesterol and lipid disorders. When a statin cannot be used or does not work well, Praluent can be used alone or together with other cholesterol lowering medicines.
Praluent should be used along with cholesterol lowering diet and exercise as recommended by your doctor.

How it works

Praluent is an injectable medicine and belongs to a group of medicines called monoclonal antibodies. Monoclonal antibodies are proteins that specifically identify and attach to other proteins in the body. Praluent recognises and attaches to a protein called PCSK9.
PCSK9 lowers the level of a receptor called LDL-R, which is needed to remove LDL cholesterol.
Praluent blocks the PCSK9 protein, thereby increasing the LDL-R receptors that are available to remove LDL cholesterol. This results in lower levels of LDL cholesterol.
Your doctor, however, may have prescribed Praluent for another purpose.
Ask your doctor if you have any questions about why it has been prescribed for you.
This medicine is only available with a doctor's prescription.

Expand BTC Lercanidipine CMI 20 Jan 2020
 
The name of your medicine is BTC Lercanidipine. It contains the active ingredient lercanidipine (as hydrochloride).
Lercanidipine belongs to a group of medicines called dihydropyridine calcium channel blockers.
Lercanidipine helps lower high blood pressure, otherwise known as hypertension.
This medicine is available only with a doctor's prescription.

How it works

This medicine works by relaxing some of the blood vessels in the body and reducing resistance to the flow of blood through the blood vessels.
Everyone has blood pressure. This pressure helps get your blood all around your body. Your blood pressure may be different at different times of the day, depending on how busy or worried you are. If your blood pressure stays higher than is needed, even when you are calm and relaxed, you have hypertension (high blood pressure).
There are usually no symptoms of hypertension. The only way of knowing that you have hypertension is to have your blood pressure checked on a regular basis. If high blood pressure is not treated it can lead to serious health problems. You may feel fine and have no symptoms, but hypertension can cause stroke, heart disease and kidney failure.
There is no evidence that this medicine is addictive.

Use in children

This medicine should not be used in children.
