by Carissa Andrews  -  July 8th, 2019

Five Little-Known and Rare Diseases to Watch Out for in 2019 preview
One in twenty people live with a rare disease at some point in their lives. While this number might seem relatively high, the truth is, for many rare diseases, there is no cure. Each disease can impact a patient’s life—from a mild annoyance, all the way to being a death sentence. While many of them are treatable in some form, the key is knowing they exist so they can be diagnosed properly. The rarer a disease is, the harder it is to pinpoint what it actually is. This is especially true for diseases that can mask themselves as other diseases without the proper laboratory to look over the results.

A Simple Guide to Dostinex (Cabergoline) for Hyperprolactinemia preview

Your body is a delicate machine and any hormone imbalance can cause a series of unwanted side effects or conditions to occur. The hormone prolactin is needed to regulate sex hormones, menstruation, ovulation, and breastfeeding in women. However, men also produce the hormone in smaller dosages, despite having no known normal function behind it. Prolactin is produced in the pituitary gland and when levels rise to high in the body (known as hyperprolactinemia), it has been linked to a handful of different conditions and diseases. Dostinex is a popular medication used to treat hyperprolactinemia, as well as the other conditions associated to it.

19 Most Prescribed Pediatric Medications and What They Do

by Carissa Andrews  -  December 17th, 2018

Most Prescribed Pediatric Medications and What They Do preview

Drugs used in pediatric care can have a long delay from the time the medication is originally approved—to the time trials are completed for use with children. An audit done by Boston’s Children’s Hospital found only one-third of mandatory trials on children’s efficacy and usage were completed in a seven-year timespan after a new drug hits the market. This can often leave a gaping hole in treatment areas—or worse yet, leave a doctor or pharmacist left to guess at whether or not it can safely treat kids.

Worldwide, more than 422 million people are affected by the various types of diabetic disorders—a drastic jump from the 108 million affected in 1980. If the upward trend of its significance isn’t halted soon, the World Health Organization (WHO) believes diabetes will become the seventh leading cause of death by 2030. Those are some scary facts. Especially when you consider an estimated 1.6 million deaths in 2015 were directly caused by diabetes and another 2.2 million were tied to high blood glucose, according to WHO. Despite being around for a long time, the exponential growth of people with the disease has the world on alert.

Over the past couple of decades, Domperidone has fallen in and out of grace with varying countries. With certain problematic side effects, and numerous medications it can interact with, Domperidone’s efficacy hasn’t always had the best track record. However, there are still many patients whose symptoms and potential benefits outweigh the problematic risks associated with Domperidone—making it a medication that can still be prescribed—even in the United States. The key is to know how to go about getting the medication in whatever country you live in.

Game Changer: First 3D Printed Drug Approved by the FDA

by   -  September 14th, 2015

First 3D Printed Drug preview
There’s a new game changer on the horizon and for those of you who are fans of Star Trek, it may sound an awful lot like a replicator. 3D printing has been around in some form since the 1980’s, but in recent years, the technology has been breaking ground with advancements in all things from medicine to art – and everything in between. It’s now poised to revolutionize a number of markets, including the pharmaceutical industry.

According to Aprecia, the 3D printing process they used was originally developed at MIT and allows them to get an incredible amount of accuracy in the delivery system of up to 1,000 mg per tablet.

5 Ways to Boost Libido Beyond Female Viagra

by   -  July 8th, 2015

by Mathier
by Mathier
Not all that long ago, I wrote an article about the female libido and the ways it can be awakened. In it, I discussed not only the Fifty Shades of Grey movie that had just been released, but also the new pill - Sprout’s Flibanserin – which was heading to the FDA in hopes of gaining approval as the first pharmaceutical claiming to make headway for women suffering from Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (HSDD). This month, an expert panel for the FDA voted 18-6 to approve the drug, after two previously unsuccessful attempts. It’s important to note final approval is pending until a hearing in August, but generally speaking, the FDA has followed the recommendations of their panel. If approved, the North Carolina drug company plans to market the drug as Addyi.

While in some ways, this is considered a gain for women’s rights activists, Flibanserin isn’t without its pitfalls, and the FDA still knows it. The recommendation for approval from the panel also comes with a pretty big caveat: Sprout must make the negative side effects like dizziness, fainting, drowsiness, and others more noticeable than just a typical warning.

by Tiffany  -  February 13th, 2015

Novartis may finally face the generic competition for Diovan. In the first week of July 2014, India’s Ranbaxy got approval to launch a cheap generic version of Diovan in the US. After Ranbaxy, three domestic pharmaceutical companies – Lupin, Aurobindo Pharma and Jubilant Life Sciences – have received final approval from the US drug regulator to sell generic valsartan in the US.

Prescription Drugs by thinglass
Have you ever gotten a new prescription from your doctor and wondered how in the heck they came up with such a weird name? Not only can they be hard to pronounce, but many also need a world-class spelling bee champion in order to spell the darn things. Even they might be at a loss. So what's up with the bizarre-o combination of letters that look more like a miscellaneous ingredient in a TV dinner? Turns out, there is a method to the pharmaceutical madness. Good thing, too, because I was beginning to worry.

Driving Under The Influence of Medications – Part 1: The Problems

by   -  May 14th, 2014

Of the nearly 314 million people in America, nearly 70% (220 million) have taken a prescription medication this month and of those, a whopping 50% (110 million) have taken two or more. With that in mind, it’s a pretty safe bet you are one of the millions who have taken a medically prescribed drug this month. However, if someone asked you whether or not your medication impairs your driving, would you know? Or are you like the majority of us who aren’t sure?

Did you know there are roughly 6 million car accidents each year in America? A study from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found in 2009 that 18% of fatally injured drivers tested positive for at least one illicit, prescription, or over-the-counter drug. That’s 1,080,000 people and likely on the rise.

Spring Is Here: Time to Replenish Your Medicine Cabinet

by   -  March 24th, 2014

Most people generally think of spring as the time for cleaning out those overrun closets, or donating unwanted items to goodwill. But let me ask you this; do you clean out your medicine cabinet, too? If you're like most of us, the answer is probably no.

Out With the Old

Throwing out anything expired, discontinued/recalled, or partially used (including any over the counter medicines) is critical to a healthy medicine cabinet. Medicines lose potency when they have gone past their expiration dates and it is recommended you check your medicine cabinet at least twice a year, getting rid of medications past their prime.
