For Aspen prescription products you will find information about your medicine in the Consumer Medicine Information sheet available on this website.

Main Indication:

Congestive heart failure - Lanoxin is useful regardless of whether the failure is predominantly of the left or right ventricle, or involves both sides of the heart. It is particularly useful in heart failure resulting from chronic overload (hypertension, valvular lesions, atherosclerotic heart disease) in which the supply of energy is not impaired. Lanoxin does not cause major benefit in situations in which the metabolic energy supply is compromised as in thyrotoxicosis, hypoxia, and severe thiamine deficiency. Atrial fibrillation - Because Lanoxin depresses conduction in the atrioventricular bundle, producing a slower ventricular beat, it is valuable in atrial fibrillation. It will frequently convert atrial flutter into fibrillation and, upon withdrawal of the drug, normal sinus rhythm may be restored. Paroxysmal atrial tachycardia - Lanoxin may relieve or prevent an attack, but its use in paroxysmal ventricular tachycardia is dangerous.

For Aspen prescription products you will find information about your medicine in the Consumer Medicine Information sheet available on this website.

Main Indication:

Acute myeloblastic leukaemia. Less commonly, chronic granulocytic (myelocytic, myeloid, myelogenous) leukaemia. Although superior results are generally obtained with busulphan (Myleran) in the treatment of chronic granulocytic leukaemia. LANVIS may be useful during blast crises or periods of thrombocytopenia induced by busulphan or other therapy. A degree of cross resistance exists between LANVIS (thioguanine) and Puri-Nethol (mercaptopurine) and generally it is not to be expected that patients who no longer respond to mercaptopurine will respond to thioguanine or vice versa. Unlike mercaptopurine the detoxification of LANVIS is not dependent on xanthine oxidase, hence therapy with LANVIS is not affected by the xanthine oxidase inhibitor, allopurinol (Zyloprim). Recent evidence suggests that LANVIS is particularly useful in concurrent or sequelist combination with other antineoplastic drugs, e.g., cytosine arabinoside. Not effective for the treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia or solid tumours. The aim of therapy is to achieve normal appearance of the bone marrow and peripheral blood. It is recognised, however, that in treating acute leukaemia, one may not always be able to achieve complete remissions and must be satisfied with partial improvement.

Main Indication:

Minocycline may be used for the treatment of infections caused by any of the following organisms provided that they have been shown by bacteriological testing to be susceptible to minocycline: Escherichia coli, Enterobacter aerogenes, Haemophilus influenzae, Klebsiella and Proteus. It may also be used in the treatment of infections due to Streptococcus pyogenes (group A ?- haemolytic) and Streptococcus faecalis but because a large proportion of these organisms is resistant to tetracyclines, minocycline should be used only if the organisms have been shown to be definitely sensitive. Tetracyclines, including minocycline, are not the drugs of choice in the treatment of staphylococcal infections. Minocycline may be considered for the treatment of such infections only if other suitable agents are not available and the organism has been shown to be sensitive to minocycline. Minocycline may be used in the treatment of tetracycline-resistant acne.

Main Indication:

MODURETIC is indicated in the treatment of patients with

  • - oedema of cardiac origin;
  • - hepatic cirrhosis with ascites;
  • - hypertension in whom potassium depletion might be anticipated.

MODURETIC, with its combination of amiloride HCl and hydrochlorothiazide, minimises the possibility of the development of excessive potassium loss in patients during vigorous diuresis for prolonged periods. MODURETIC, with its built-in potassium sparing agent, is especially indicated in those conditions where the positive effect on potassium balance is particularly important.

MODURETIC may be used alone, or as an adjunct to other antihypertensive drugs. Since it enhances the action of these agents, the dosage of these antihypertensive drugs may need to be reduced to avoid the risk of an excessive drop in blood pressure.

Main Indication:

Oral Administration: MYAMBUTOL is indicated for the treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis, as shown by a large number of studies by investigators throughout the world. It has also been used successfully in cases of primary tuberculosis and extrapulmonary forms of tuberculosis, including miliary tuberculosis, tuberculous meningitis, tuberculosis of bones and joints, genitourinary tuberculosis, tuberculosis of the skin and tuberculous eye diseases. It should not be used as the sole antituberculosis drug, but should be used in conjunction with at least one other antituberculosis drug. Selection of the companion drug should be based on clinical experience, considerations of comparative safety and appropriate in vitro susceptibility studies. In patients who have not received previous antituberculosis therapy, i.e. initial treatment, the most frequently used regimens have included three of the following drugs - MYAMBUTOL, isoniazid, rifampicin and streptomycin - for the first 2-4 months: for example, MYAMBUTOL plus isoniazid plus rifampicin or MYAMBUTOL plus isoniazid plus streptomycin then continuing with a two drug regimen such as MYAMBUTOL plus isoniazid or MYAMBUTOL plus rifampicin. In patients who have received previous antituberculosis therapy, mycobacterial resistance to other drugs used in initial therapy is frequent. Consequently, in such retreatment cases MYAMBUTOL should be combined with at least one of the second-line drugs not previously administered to the patient and to which bacterial susceptibility has been indicated by appropriate in vitro studies. Antituberculosis drugs used with MYAMBUTOL have included cycloserine, ethionamide, pyrazinamide, viomycin and other drugs. Isoniazid, aminosalicylic acid, and streptomycin have also been used in multiple drug regimens. Alternating drug regimens have also been utilised.

Main Indication:

Treatment of chronic granulocytic leukaemia. It has been shown to be superior to splenic irradiation when judged by survival times, control of spleen size and maintenance of haemoglobin levels. Although not curative, busulfan reduces the total granulocyte mass, relieves disease symptoms and improves the clinical state of the patient. Busulfan is not useful once blast transformation has occurred.

Busulfan produces prolonged remission in polycythaemia vera. It is especially useful in cases 32 resistant to radiophosphorus ( P) and where there is marked thrombocytosis. Busulfan is useful in selected cases of essential thrombocythaemia and myelofibrosis.
