    Duodenal Ulcer (adults)

    INDICATION:

    PEPTAZ (omeprazole) is indicated for short-term treatment of active duodenal ulcer in adults. Most patients heal within four weeks. Some patients may require an additional four weeks of therapy.PEPTAZ (omeprazole) in combination with clarithromycin and amoxicillin, is indicated for treatment of patients with H. pylori infection and duodenal ulcer disease (active or up to 1-year history) to eradicate H. pylori in adults.

    PEPTAZ (omeprazole) in combination with clarithromycin is indicated for treatment of patients with H. pylori infection and duodenal ulcer disease to eradicate H. pylori in adults.
    Eradication of H. pylori has been shown to reduce the risk of duodenal ulcer recurrence.
    Among patients who fail therapy, PEPTAZ (omeprazole) with clarithromycin is more likely to be associated with the development of clarithromycin resistance as compared with triple therapy. In patients who fail therapy, susceptibility testing should be done. If resistance to clarithromycin is demonstrated or susceptibility testing is not possible, alternative antimicrobial therapy should be instituted.

    Gastric Ulcer (adults)

    PEPTAZ (omeprazole) is indicated for short-term treatment (4-8 weeks) of active benign gastric ulcer in adults.

  • Timolol

    COMPOSITION:

    Each ml contains:
    Timolol  BP 5mg

    Indication:

      Timitol Ophthalmic Solution is indicated in the treatment of elevated intraocular
    pressure in patients with ocular hypertension or open-angle glaucoma.

    Dosage and Administration:

    TIMITOL Ophthalmic Solution is available in concentrations of 0.25% and  0.5%. The usual starting dose is one drop of 0.5% TIMITOL in the affected eye(s) twice a day. If the clinical response is not adequate, the dosage may be changed to one drop of 0.5% solution in the affected eye(s) twice a day.    Since in some patients the pressure-lowering response to TIMITOL may require a few weeks to stabilize, evaluation should include a determination of intraocular pressure after approximately 4 weeks of treatment with TIMITOL.
    If the intraocular pressure is maintained at satisfactory levels, the dosage schedule may be changed to one drop once a day in the affected eye(s). Because of diurnal variations in intraocular pressure, satisfactory response to the once-a-day dose is best determined by measuring the intraocular pressure at different times during the day.
    Dosages above one drop of 0.5% TIMITOL twice a day generally have not been shown to produce further reduction in intraocular pressure. If the patient's intraocular pressure is still not at a satisfactory level on this regimen, concomitant therapy with other agent(s) for lowering intraocular pressure can be instituted. The concomitant use of two topical beta-adrenergic blocking agents is not recommended.

    In patients with juvenile arthritis, doses above 50 mg/kg/day are not recommended because they have not been studied and doses exceeding the upper recommended dose of 40 mg/kg/day may increase the risk of causing serious adverse events. The therapeutic response may require from a few days to several weeks to be achieved. Once a clinical effect is obtained, the dosage should be lowered to the smallest dose of ibuprofen needed to maintain adequate control of symptoms. Pediatric patients receiving doses above 30 mg/kg/day or if abnormal liver function tests have occurred with previous NSAID treatments should be carefully followed for signs and symptoms of early liver dysfunction.

    ADULTS:

    Primary Dysmenorrhea:
    For the treatment of primary dysmenorrhea, beginning with the earliest onset of such pain, Ibuprofen Oral Suspension should be given in a dose of 400 mg every 4 hours, as necessary, for the relief of pain.

    Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis:
    Suggested dosage: 1200-3200 mg daily (300 mg q.i.d. or 400 mg, 600 mg or 800 mg t.i.d. or q.i.d.). Individual patients may show a better response to 3200 mg daily, as compared with 2400 mg, although in well-controlled clinical trials patients on 3200 mg did not show a better mean response in terms of efficacy. Therefore, when treating patients with 3200 mg/day, the physician should observe sufficient increased clinical benefits to offset potential increased risk.

    Individualization of Dosage:

    The dose of Ibuprofen Oral Suspension should be tailored to each patient, and may be lowered or raised from the suggested doses depending on the severity of symptoms either at time of initiating drug therapy or as the patient responds or fails to respond. One fever study showed that, after the initial dose of ibuprofen oral suspension, subsequent doses may be lowered and still provide adequate fever control. In a situation when low fever would require the ibuprofen oral suspension 5 mg/kg dose in a child with pain, the dose that will effectively treat the predominant symptom should be chosen. In chronic conditions, a therapeutic response to ibuprofen oral suspension therapy is sometimes seen in a few days to a week, but most often is observed by two weeks. After a satisfactory response has been achieved, the patient's dose should be reviewed and adjusted as required.

  • Dexamethasone Sodium

    Composition:

    Each tablet contains:
    Dexamethasone Sodium 0.5mg

    Indications:

    Indicated in a wide variety of disorders amenable to glucocorticoid therapy, as well
    as an adjunct in the control of cerebral edema.
    Dexamethasone is used to treat conditions such as arthritis, blood/hormone/immune system disorders, allergic reactions, certain skin and eye conditions, breathing problems, certain bowel disorders, and certain cancers. It is also used as a test for an adrenal gland disorder (Cushing's syndrome). This medication is a corticosteroid hormone (glucocorticoid). It decreases your body's natural defensive response and reduces symptoms such as swelling and allergic-type reactions.

    Dosage and Administration:

    In general, glucocorticoid dosage depends on the severity of the condition and response of the patient. Under certain circumstances, for instance in stress and changed clinical picture, extra dosage adjustments may be necessary. If no favourable response is noted within a couple of days, glucocorticoid therapy should be discontinued.

    Adults

    Usually, daily oral dosages of 0.5 – 10 mg are sufficient. In some patients higher dosages may be temporarily required to control the disease. Once the disease is under control, the dosage should be reduced or tapered off to the lowest suitable level under continuous monitoring and observation of the patient.
    For a short dexamethasone suppression test, 1 mg dexamethasone is given at 11 pm and plasma cortisol measured the next morning. Patients who do not show a decrease in cortisol can be exposed to a longer test: 500 micrograms dexamethasone is given at 6 hourly intervals for 48 hours followed by 2 mg every 6 hours for a further 48 hours. Twenty-four hour urine collections are made before, during and at the end of the test for determination of 17-hydroxycorticosteroids.

    Children

    0.01-0.1 mg/kg of body weight daily.
    Dosage of glucocorticoids should be adjusted on the basis of the individual patient's response.
