Aventis drugs you can buy at our med store
- Allegra (Fexofenadine) is a modern antihistamine, i.e. anti-allergic drug that helps to get rid of the allergy symptoms quickly and effectively without causing the side effects typical for previous-generation drugs from this class such as sleepiness, fatigue, slow thinking, and so on. The medication is prescribed for the treatment of allergic rhinitis, allergic conjunctivitis, and urticaria. The effect of the medication is due to the inhibition of H1 histamine receptors, i.e. the receptors of the human body responsible for allergic response of the organism to an irritant.

- Amaryl (Glimepiride) is a medication with a hypoglycemic effect, i.e. lowers the level of glucose in the blood plasma. The drug is a derivative of sulfonylureas of the third generation. Its effect is due to the stimulation of beta cells of the pancreas that contributes to the mobilization and enhancement of the release of endogenous insulin. It also increases the amount of insulin-sensitive receptors in target cells and inhibits gluconeogenesis (the formation of glucose from non-carbohydrate compounds). The indication for the pills use is diabetes type two. You can find this medication from our section of diabetes medications.
- Depakote also known as Divalproex or valproic acid is an anti-seizure medication that is prescribed for epilepsy, migraines, generalized seizures, children’s tics, and bipolar disorder. It allows preventing migraines and seizures associated with epilepsy through the stimulation GABA (Gamma-aminobutyric acid) mechanisms by inhibiting the enzyme GABA-transferase, which leads to an increase in GABA in the central nervous system. (GABA interferes with pre- and postsynaptic discharges, and this prevents the spread of convulsive activity.) This medication can be found in the migraines medications section of RXShopMD.com
