Escitalopram (Lexapro / Cipralex) What is Escitalopram? Escitalopram is a commonly prescribed antidepressant that also goes by a number of other brand names, including Cipralex and Lexapro. Escitalopram belongs to a class of antidepressant medications known as Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs), and is FDA approved for the treatment of Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Major Depressive Disorder, both conditions which are most often associated with abnormally low levels of Serotonin in the blood stream. SSRIs like Escitalopram prevent Serotonin from being reabsorbed as quickly, allowing them to remain active in the space between neurons for a longer period of time. This medication is approved for patients twelve years of age or older. Escitalopram and Citalopram Escitalopram (Lexapro) is a stereoisomer of another medication known as citalopram (Celexa), meaning that the molecular configuration of the two compounds are identical, except they are mirror images of one another.

Vardenafil (Levitra) Guide

Written by Dr. White, Published on January 19th, 2015

What is Vardenafil? Vardenafil is one of the three primary Erectile Dysfunction medications available in the United States, and is sold under the brand name Levitra in the United States. In Italy, the product is known as Vivanza, and in India, it is known as Staxyn. How Does Vardenafil Work? Like its cousins, Sildenafil (Viagra) and Tadalafil (Cialis), Vardenafil is what is known as a PDE5 Inhibitor. PDE5 Inhibitors increase blood flow to the penis by encouraging the relaxation of muscles within the organ which restrict blood flow, which leads to erection. What Causes an Erection? To put it simply, an erection occurs when blood flow is encouraged to the penis and blood outflow is restricted, producing a ballooning effect which leads directly to erection. Blood vessels leading to the penis, in the Corpus Cavernosum, dilate, which leads blood to enter the penis more quickly, and veins which draw blood away from the penis undergo vasoconstriction. In order for this process to take place, a man must experience stimulation which promotes the erection. When a man experiences stimulation, it encourages the manufacture of nitric oxide by the organ, which then dissipates out through the penis. Nitric oxide is a powerful

Tadalafil (Cialis) Guide

Written by Dr. White, Published on January 14th, 2015

What is Tadalafil? Tadalafil belongs to a class of medications known as phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors, or simply PDE5s. Sildenafil belongs to this pharmaceutical class as well. Most patients know these two drugs as Cialis (Tadalafil) and Viagra (Sildenafil). Tadalafil is primarily used as an Erectile Dysfunction medication, but can also be used to treat Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension, a condition in which the arteries which carry blood from the heart to the lungs are excessively constricted, causing blood to flow through the region at an abnormally high pressure. When Tadalafil is prescribed as an Erectile Dysfunction treatment is it usually referred to as Cialis, but it is marketed as Adcirca as a hypertension medication. As of 2011, Tadalafil earned FDA approval for the treatment of a condition known as Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, a condition in which the prostate grows larger, but not due to cancer or malignancy. In this case, Tadalafil is specifically prescribed to patients that simultaneously experience both Erectile Dysfunction and Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia simultaneously. Tadalafil was originally invented by a small biotech company which was based in Washington, known as Icos Corporation, in partnership with Glaxo Wellcome. Eventually, Icos Corporation entered a partnership with Eli Lilly, and

Tamoxifen Citrate Guide

Written by Dr. White, Published on January 11th, 2015

What is Tamoxifen? Tamoxifen is an orally administered medication which is one of the most important medications used in the treatment of breast cancer around the world. Because of its importance, and the prevalence of breast cancer around the globe, Tamoxifen is included in the WHO’s List of Essential Medicines, those which are considered absolutely necessary to provide basic care to patients. How Does Tamoxifen Work? Tamoxifen is a medication which limits the activity of Estrogen in the breast tissue. When Tamoxifen is taken, it is broken down into a compound known as 4-hydroxytamoxifen, which then travels through the body producing effects dependent upon where it is. Tamoxifen is considered most valuable because of its effect on breast tissue, but it also impacts processes in other areas of the body, such as the endometrium. In this area of the body, Tamoxifen actually encourages Estrogenic activity, whereas in the breast tissue it significantly reduces the effects of Estrogen upon breast tissue. Because Tamoxifen impacts Estrogen activity differently dependent upon the area of the body, it is referred to as a Selective Estrogen-Receptor Molecule. It is highly effective at treating breast cancer, and the primary form of Hormone Therapy for female patients
