Anti-Fungal | Anti- Viral | Anti- Histamine | Anti- Infectives | Bronchodilators


ANTI-FUNGAL - An antifungal medication, also known as antimycotic medication, is a pharmaceutical fungicide or fungistatic used to treat and prevent mycosis such as athlete's foot, ringworm, candidiasis, serious systemic infection such as cryptococcal meningitis, and others. Common Antifungal medicines include: Fluconazole, Ketoconazole, Clotrimazole, Econazole, Miconazole, Terbinafine etc.


ANTI- VIRAL - Antiviral drugs are class of medications used for treating viral infections. Most antivirals target specific viruses, a broad spectrum of antivirals are effective against the wide range of viruses. Unlike most antibiotics, antiviral drugs do not destroy their target pathogen; instead they inhibit its development.
Examples include: - Acyclovir, Ritonavir, Lamivudine, Vidarbine, Zidovidine etc.


ANTI- HISTAMINE - Antihistamines are a pharmaceutical class of drugs that act to treat histamine-mediated conditions. There are two main classes of histamine receptors: H-1 receptors and H-2 receptors. Antihistamine drugs that bind to H-1 receptors are generally used to treat allergies and allergic rhinitis. Drugs that bind to H-2 receptors treat upper gastrointestinal conditions that are caused by excessive stomach acid. H-1 antihistamines are further classified according to first and second-generation agents. First-generation H-1 antihistamines more easily cross the blood-brain barrier into the central nervous system (CNS), whereas second-generation H-1 antihistamines do not. The first-generation drugs will bind to both central and peripheral histamine-1 receptors, whereas second-generation drugs selectively bind to peripheral histamine-1 receptors; this leads to different therapeutic and side effect profiles.


ANTI- INFECTIVES - Anti-infectives are medicines that work to prevent or treat infections, they include antibacterials, antivirals, antifungals and antiparasitic medications. Drugs include : Penicillins , Cephalosporins, Aminoglycoside, Tetracyclines, Fluoroquinolones, Sulfanomides etc.


BRONCHODILATORS - Bronchodilators are a type of medication that make breathing easier by relaxing the muscles in the lungs and widening the airways (bronchi). They're often used to treat long-term conditions where the airways may become narrow and inflamed, such as: asthma, a common lung condition caused by inflammation of the airways.
