Diflucan is used for treating and preventing certain yeast and fungal infections. Diflucan is an azole antifungal. It kills sensitive fungi by interfering with the formation of the fungal cell membrane. It works by stopping the growth of common types of vaginal yeast (fungus). This medication belongs to a class of drugs called azole antifungals.
Take Generic Diflucan 150mg by mouth with or without food. Take Diflucan at least 2 hours before proton pump inhibitors (eg, omeprazole). To clear up your infection completely, take Diflucan for the full course of treatment. Keep taking it even if you feel better in a few days. Do not miss any dose. Diflucan works best if it is taken at the same time each day.
If you miss a dose of Diflucan, take it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at once.
Do NOT use Diflucan if:
  • you are allergic to any ingredient in Diflucan
  • you are taking astemizole, an aldosterone blocker (eg, eplerenone), cisapride, an ergot alkaloid (eg, ergotamine), erythromycin, pimozide, a serotonin (5-HT1) receptor agonist (eg, eletriptan), or terfenadine.

The effect of this medication continues for several days. If your condition does not improve after a few days or if it worsens, or if you think you may have a serious medical problem, get medical help right away.
Mebendazole Tablets (GenericVermox Cipla) tablets are used to treat worm infections of the gut such as pinworms as well as other other common worm infections such as whipworm, roundworm, hookworm, threadworm and tapeworm.
Mebendazole is a highly effective broad spectrum antihelmintic and works by selectively inhibiting the synthesis of microtubules in parasitic worms, and by destroying extant cytoplasmic microtubes in their intestinal cells: thereby blocking the uptake of glucose and other nutrients, resulting in the gradual immobilization and eventual death of the helminths. Mebendazole is only absorbed to a small extent. The active ingredient contained in Mebex Tablets (Generic Vermox) is Metronidazole.
Mebex tablets (Generic Vermox) are contraindicated in individuals with a hypersensitivity to Mebendazole or any other inactive ingredient present in Generic Vermox. It is also contraindicated in pregnant women.

Peyronie's disease

Peyronie's disease is the development of scar tissue inside the penis that causes penile curvature, circular or hourglass deformity, shortening of the penis, pain with erection and/or difficulty with erection. Most doctors believe Peyronie's disease is caused by repetitive trauma to the penis or, in some cases, genetic factors that cause a scar or plaque to develop, which restricts the elasticity of this area of the penis during erection. Most men with Peyronie's disease cannot identify or recall a traumatic event that precipitated the condition.
Peyronie's disease was once thought to be rare but is now believed to occur in as many as 10% of men. It can be a severe hindrance to healthy sexual functioning and in its most progressive state the curvature of the penis is so severe sexual intercourse is impossible.
At the Columbia University Department of Urology at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, we not only evaluate the patient but we also assess the sexual function of the patient and his partner, because pain with intercourse can sometimes arise from a woman's anatomy.
Peyronie's disease can occur in a mild form that heals without treatment in six to 18 months. In these cases, the problem does not progress past the inflammation phase. Diseases in severe cases can be permanent. The hardened plaque reduces flexibility, causing pain and forcing the penis to bend or arc during erection.

In addition to the bending of the penis, Peyronie's disease can cause general pain as well as painful erections. It also can cause emotional distress, and affect a man's desire and ability to function during sex. Medications prescribed for erectile dysfunction such as Viagra 100mg  Soft tab are sometimes beneficial for patients in the early stages of Peyronie's disease.
The exact cause of Peyronie's disease is unknown. In people whose disease develops quickly, lasts a short time, and goes away without treatment, the likely cause is trauma (hitting or bending) that causes bleeding inside the penis. However, in some people, Peyronie's disease develops slowly and is severe enough to require surgical treatment. Other possible causes of Peyronie's disease include:
          Vasculitis. This is an inflammation of blood or lymphaticvessels. This inflammation can lead to the formation of scar tissue.
          Connective tissue disorders. According to the National Institutes of Health, about 30% of men with Peyronie's disease also develop disorders that affect the connective tissue in other parts of their bodies, such as the hands and feet. These conditions generally cause a thickening or hardening of the connective tissue. Connective tissue is specialized tissue -- such as cartilage, bone, and skin -- that acts to support other body tissues.
          Heredity. Some studies suggest that a man who has a relative with Peyronie's disease is at greater risk for developing the disease himself.
