What Cancidas Is And What It Is Used For

CANCIDAS is an antifungal medicine that interferes with the production of a component (glucan polysaccharide) of the fungal cell wall that is necessary if the fungus is to continue living and growing. Fungal cells exposed to CANCIDAS have incomplete or defective cell walls, making them fragile and unable to grow.

CANCIDAS may have been prescribed to treat a serious fungal infection called invasive candidiasis. The infection is caused by fungal (yeast) cells called Candida. These yeast cells are normally found in the digestive tract, and do not cause an infection unless they enter the bloodstream (in which cas

As an aid in the treatment and prevention of gingivitis and in the maintenance of oral hygiene, particularly in situations where toothbrushing cannot be adequately employed (eg; following oral surgery, in physically or mentally handicapped patients, the terminally ill or immunocompromised patients).

Also for use in a post-peridontal surgery or treatment* regimen to promote gingival healing.

*NB: Use as part of a post-periodontal treatment regimen has only been adequately studied over the short term and following standard root surface instrumentation.

It is useful in the management of aphthous ulceration and oral candidal infections (eg; denture stomatitis and thrush).

4.2 Posology And Method Of Administration

Adults:

Corsodyl spray should be applied as required to the tooth and gingival surfaces, ulcers or other sore areas, using up to a maximum of twelve actuations of the spray (0.14 ml/actuation) twice daily. The spray should be applied once in the morning and once in the evening.

Corsodyl is incompatible with anionic agents which are usually present in conventional dentifrices. These should therefore be used before Corsodyl (rinsing the mouth between applications) or at a different time of day.

What Clopidogrel Tablets Are And What They Are Used For

Clopidogrel Tablets belong to a group of medicines called antiplatelet medicinal products. Platelets are very small structures in the blood, smaller than red or white blood cells, which clump together during blood clotting. By preventing this clumping, antiplatelet medicinal products reduce the chances of blood clots forming (a process called thrombosis).

Clopidogrel Tablets are taken to prevent blood clots (thrombi) forming in hardened blood vessels (arteries), a process known as atherothrombosis, which can lead to atherothrombotic events (such as stroke, heart attack, or death).

You have been prescribed Clopidogrel Tablets to help prevent b
