Anti-inflam, Leukotriene Pathway Inhibitor Singulair Montelukast Asthma (treatment & prophylaxis), exercise-induced asthma (prophylaxis), perennial & seasonal allergic rhinitis Granules: 4mg; Tablets: 10mg; Chew Tabs: 4mg, 5mg Oral 10mg QPM or 2 hrs before exercise 1-5 YO: 4mg QPM; 6-14 YO: 5mg QPM; 15 YO+: 10mg QPM Leukotriene receptor antagonist. It binds to (CysLT) type-1 receptors found in human airway (smooth muscle cells and macrophages), which prevents airway edema, smooth muscle contraction and other respiratory inflammation.
Antimuscarinic, Bronchodilator Spiriva Tiotropium COPD Capsule: 18 mcg Oral 1 capsule via 2 inhalations QD using Handihaler (do not swallow capsule) N/A Long-acting, antimuscarinic agent which is often referred to as an anticholinergic. In airways, Tiotropium induces bronchodilation via inhibition of the M3 receptor on airway smooth muscle.
Anti-inflam/ Bronchodilator Combo: β2 adr. Agonist (LABA) Symbicort Budesonide/ Formoterol Asthma, COPD 80mcg/4.5mcg, 160mcg/4.5mcg Oral 2 puffs BID (either strength) Max: 4 puffs/day 12 YO+: same as adult Budesonide: anti-inflam synthetic corticosteroid w/ potent glucocorticoid & weak mineralcorticoid activity Formoterol: long-acting bronchodilator that exerts agonist effects on beta(2)-adrenergic receptors found in bronchial smooth muscle
Antitussive Tessalon Benzonatate Cough Capsule: 100mg, 200mg Oral 100-200mg TID PRN (MAX: 600mg/day and 200mg/dose) 10 Yrs+: same as adult Suppresses cough through a peripheral action, anesthetizing the stretch or cough receptors of vagal afferent fibers
Antiglaucoma, Beta-Adrenergic blocker (nonselective) Timoptic Timolol Ocular HTN, Open-angle Glaucoma, Migraine prophylaxis 0.25%, 0.5% drops or gel-forming drops Eye 1 drop in affected eye(S) QD-BID Gel forming: 1 drop QD 1 drop (either strength) QD Non-selective beta(1) and beta(2) adrenergic receptor blocking agent which reduces the vasodilator, bronchodilator, positive chronotropic & inotropic responses
Antiglaucoma, Prostaglandin Travatan Z Travoprost Raised intraocular pressure (in pts w/ open-angle glaucoma or ocular HTN) 0.004% ophthalmic soln. Eye 1 drop in affected eye(s) QPM (also max) 16 YO+ Selective FP prostanoid receptor agonist, lowers intraocular pressure (IOP) by increasing the uveoscleral outflow
Antiglaucoma, Prostaglandin Xalatan Latanoprost Ocular HTN, Open-angle Glaucoma 0.005% ophthalmic soln. Eye 1 drop in affected eye(s) QPM (also max) N/A Prostaglandin F 2-alpha analog believed to reduce IOP by increasing outflow of aqueous humor (studies suggest main MOA is increased uveoscleral outflow)
Vaccine Gardasil Human Papillomavirus Quadrivalent Vaccine Adenocarcinoma in situ of cervix; anal cancer; cervical cancer; anal, cervical, vaginal, vulva intraepithelial neoplasia, genital warts, malignant tumor of vagina/vulva(proph.) Susp. IM (Deltoid or upper thigh) 26 YO and younger: 0.5 mL IM for 3 doses at 0, 2, and 6 Months (3 dose series) 9 YO+: same as adult Development of humoral immune response against HPV types 6, 11, 16, and 18
Vaccine Pneumovax 23 Pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine Pneumococcal vaccination Injectable: 25mcg/0.5ml SubQ, IM (Deltoid or mid-thigh) 19-64 YO: 0.5 mL IM or subQ as single dose at least 8 wks after last PCV13 Revaccination: in 5 yrs (max 2 doses) 2 YO+: same as adult Induce type-specific antibodies that enhance opsonization, phagocytosis, and killing ov pneumococci by leukocytes and other phagocytic cells
Vaccine Varivax Varicella vaccine Varicella (Varivax) prophylaxis SubQ powder for soln. 19400 PFU SubQ 0.5 mL subQ x2 doses; allow at least 4 weeks to elapse between doses 12 mos-12 yrs: 0.5 mL subQ; allow at least 3 months to elapse if 2nd dose is given Induces varicella antibodies and a cell-mediated immune response, which produce active immunity against varicella infection
Vaccine Prevnar 13 Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine Pneumococcal vaccination, 13-valent conjugate vaccine Susp. IM 0.5 mL IM followed by 1 dose of 23-valent 8 or more weeks later Primary series: 0.5 mL IM for 4 doses at 2, 4, 6, and 12-15 mos Causes a T-cell dependent immune response which signals the maturation of B-cells to produce antibodies and memory cells to pneumococcal polysaccharides
Vaccine Zostavax Zoster Vaccine Herpes zoster (Zostavax) prophylaxis SubQ powder for Soln. 19400 PFU SubQ 50 YO+: 0.65 mL subQ (FDA recommends at 50 yrs; advisory committee on immuniz practices recommends at 60 yrs N/A Induces antibodies and a cell-mediated response
