Expand Menactra CMI 20 Apr 2018
 
Menactra is a vaccine.
Vaccines are used to protect you against infectious diseases.
Menactra is given to protect persons 9 months through 55 years of age against meningococcal disease caused by four groups of Neisseria meningitidis (A, C, Y and W-135). The use of this vaccine should be in accordance with official recommendations. It allows the body to produce enough antibodies to provide a defence against the bacteria that cause meningococcal disease. However, as with all vaccines, 100% protection cannot be guaranteed.
Menactra will not prevent meningitis (an infection of the brain and spinal cord coverings) caused by other groups of Neisseria meningitidis or meningitis caused by different kinds of microbes.

It is used to treat:
chronic severe pain.
Ask your doctor if you have any questions about why this medicine has been prescribed for you. Your doctor may have prescribed this medicine for another reason.

How it works

Opioid analgesics such as morphine sulphate have been used to treat chronic cancer pain for many years. In most cases addiction does not occur. However, over time your body becomes used to taking morphine, so if you suddenly stop taking your MORPHINE MR APOTEX tablets you may experience some symptoms of withdrawal.
It is important that you discuss this issue with your doctor.

Expand Eprex CMI 10 Apr 2018
 
EPREX prefilled syringes contain the active ingredient epoetin alfa, a protein that stimulates bone marrow to produce more red blood cells.
Red blood cells are responsible for carrying oxygen to all parts of your body. A decrease in the number of red blood cells can cause anaemia. Some symptoms of anaemia are tiredness, breathlessness when exercising, and feeling cold. Anaemia may have many causes, including decreased production of a hormone called erythropoietin by the kidneys due to kidney failure, or as a result of chemotherapy treatments for cancer. EPREX is virtually identical to your body's erythropoietin, and has a similar effect to naturally occurring erythropoietin in your body.
EPREX is used to treat the anaemia associated with kidney disease. If you have kidney disease, your kidney may not produce enough erythropoietin (necessary for red blood cell production) and your doctor may wish to correct this by prescribing EPREX. This medicine stimulates your bone marrow to produce more red blood cells, helping to treat your anaemia.
EPREX can also be used to treat anaemia and reduce the need for a blood transfusion if you are receiving chemotherapy for cancer and your doctor decides you may need a blood transfusion.
Doctors can also prescribe EPREX for mildly anaemic patients who are going to have surgery and donate blood before surgery, so that their own blood can be given to them during or after surgery. Because EPREX stimulates the production of red blood cells, a higher volume of blood can be taken from these patients.
EPREX can be used as an alternative to a blood transfusion in adult patients about to undergo major orthopaedic (bone) surgery where there is a potentially high risk from blood transfusion complications.
EPREX is not addictive.
This medicine is available only with a doctor's prescription.
