DNA and Drug information

New drugs to be aware of:

Adlyxin is helpful in type II diabetes with Acute Coronary Syndrome, a situation where the heart does not get enough blood, perhaps after a clot in the coronary artery. I wonder if it also helps with coronary spasm due to emotional or physical stress.

Xiidra helps “dry eyes,” not producing enough tears to protect the eye. Web MD website provides some home treatments you can try first, http://www.webmd.com/first-aid/dry-eye-syndrome-treatment, The gel type over the counter eye drops work better for me than the plain drops.

Xolair is now approved for children with severe asthma.

Syndros helps prevent nausea and vomiting resulting from chemotherapy.

Photrexa helps with “corneal ecstasia,” a condition of weak, bulging cornea (the eye covering) that sometimes occurs after lasik surgery.
