Cefuroxime is one of the bactericidal second generation cephalosporin antibiotics, which is active against a wide range of Gram-positive and Gram-negative susceptible organisms including many beta-lactamase producing strains. It is indicated for the treatment of infections caused by sensitive bacteria. Clavulanic acid has a similar structure to the beta-lactam antibiotics but binds irreversibly to the beta-lactamase enzymes. The presence of clavulanic acid protects Cefuroxime from degradation by beta-lactamase enzymes and effectively extends the antibacterial spectrum of Cefuroxime to include many bacteria normally resistant to Cefuroxime and other Cephalosporins.

5-Aminosalicylic Acid is thought to be the major therapeutically active part of the sulfasalazine molecule in the treatment of ulcerative colitis. Sulfasalazine is converted to equimolar amounts of sulfapyridine and 5-Aminosalicylic Acid by bacterial action in the colon. The mechanism of action of 5-Aminosalicylic Acid (and sulfasalazine) is unknown, but appears to be topical rather than systemic.

Metsina IV Infusion: Each box contains 1 bottle of 100 ml solution of Metronidazole for intravenous infusion.
Nortriptyline is a tricyclic antidepressant. The mechanism of action of tricyclic antidepressants are at present unknown. Nortriptyline is not a monoamine oxidase inhibitor. It inhibits the activity of such diverse agents as histamine, 5-hydroxytryptamine and acetylcholine. It increases the pressor effect of norepinephrine but blocks the pressor response of phenethylamine. Studies suggest that Nortriptyline interferes with the transport, release and storage of catecholamines.

Myotril is a preparation of clonazepam, mainly used as anticonvulsant drug. Clonazepam brings about direct inhibition of cortical and sub-cortical epileptogenic focus and prevents the formation of convulsive activity. It displays several pharmacological properties which are shown in the benzodiazepine class of drugs. At the special cord level clonazepam depresses more reflux pathways and potentiates presynaptic inhibition of Gamma Amino Butyric Acid in the CNS. Over compensatory excitation processes are thereby reduced via negative feedback without substantiation of other physiologic neuronal activity. It is available as 0.5 mg and 2 mg tablet.
