Expand Empliciti CMI 02 Dec 2021
 
EMPLICITI contains the active substance elotuzumab, which is a monoclonal antibody, a type of protein designed to recognise and attach to a specific target substance in the body.
Elotuzumab attaches to a target protein called Signaling Lymphocyte Activation Molecule Family member 7 (SLAMF7). SLAMF7 is found in large amounts on the surface of some cancer cells (multiple myeloma cells) and on certain cells of your immune system (natural killer cells).
When elotuzumab binds to SLAMF7 it stimulates your immune system to attack and destroy the multiple myeloma cells.
EMPLICITI is used to treat multiple myeloma (a cancer of the bone marrow) in adults in combination with other medicines.
Multiple myeloma is a cancer of a type of white blood cell called plasma cells. These cells divide out of control and collect in the bone marrow. This results in damage to the bones and kidneys.
EMPLICITI is used when you have already had one or more other types of treatment before.
EMPLICITI is not recommended for use in children and people under 18 years.
Ask your doctor if you have any questions about why EMPLICITI has been prescribed for you.
EMPLICITI is not addictive. This medicine is available only with a doctor's prescription.

Expand Viagra CMI 23 Nov 2021

Viagra will work only if you are sexually excited.
Viagra will not increase your sex drive.
Viagra is not for use in women.
This medicine is available only with a doctor's prescription.

Expand Relpax PI 23 Nov 2021
 
Expand Relpax CMI 23 Nov 2021
 
Relpax is used to treat a migraine attack.
Symptoms of a migraine include headache, nausea (feeling sick), vomiting, sensitivity to light and sensitivity to sound.
Some people with migraine also get an "aura", which is a warning sign of temporary change in eyesight or speech, sometimes associated with vomiting.
Relpax is effective in relieving migraine with or without aura.
Relpax does not work in other types of headache, which are not migraine.
Relpax should be taken as early as possible after the migraine headache starts, but is also effective if taken at a later stage during the migraine.
It does not work if taken during the aura phase, before the headache starts. It is not effective in preventing migraine attacks.
Relpax contains the active ingredient eletriptan hydrobromide. It belongs to a group of medicines called serotonin agonists. It is thought that these medicines work by reducing the size of swollen blood vessels around the brain that may be involved in migraine.
Your doctor, however, may prescribe Relpax for another purpose.
Ask your doctor if you have any questions about why Relpax has been prescribed for you.
This medicine is only available with a doctor's prescription.
