Posterior Pituitary Drugs Oxytocin ADH Diabetes insipidus Nocturnal enuresis vasopressin (Pitressin®) desmopressin (Stimate®) lypressin (Diapid®)

Parathyroid Diseases : 

Parathyroid Diseases Hypoparathyroidism Inadequate calcium levels TX: increased dietary calcium Hyperparathyroidism Excessive calcium levels TX: surgical removal

Thyroid Disease : 

Thyroid Disease Hypothyroidism Hormone replacement levothyroxine (Synthroid®) Hyperthyroidism Thyrotoxicosis Surgical removal propylthiouracil (PTU)

Adrenal Cortex : 

Adrenal Cortex ACTH Hypersecretion Cushing’s Disease Surgical removal Inhibit adrenal secretion ketoconazol (Nizoral ®) Symptomatic tx: Antihypertensives ACTH Hyposecretion Addison’s Disease Replacement therapy Cortisone (Cortistan®) Hydrocortisone (SoluCortef®) Fludrocortisone (Florinef Acetate®)

Pancreas : 


Insulin Preparations : 

Insulin Preparations Regular Insulin Natural insulin Modified Insulin Increased duration of action NPH (neutral protamin Hagedorn) Natural plus protamin Lente Attached to zinc to prolong absorption

Oral Hypoglycemic Agents : 

Oral Hypoglycemic Agents Sulfonylureas  insulin secretion tolbutamide (Orinase®) chlorpropamide (Diabinese®) glipizide (Glucotrol®) glyburide (Micronase®) Alpha-glucosidase inhibitors Delay carbohydrate metabolism acarbose (Precose®) miglitol (Glyset®) Biguanides metformin (Glucophage®)  Glucose synthesis  Glucose uptake Thiazolidinediones Insulin effectiveness troglitazone (Rezulin®)

Hyperglycemic Agents : 

Hyperglycemic Agents Glucagon  gluconeogenesis D50W diazoxide (Proglycem®) Inhibits insulin release

Estrogens & Progestins : 

Estrogens & Progestins Estrogens used for post-menopausal hormone replacement therapy. estradiol (Estrace®) conjugated estrogens (Premarin®) estropipate (Ogen®) Progestin Diminish side effects of estrogen therapy Nausea, fluid retention, breast tenderness medroxyprogesterone acetate (Provera®) norethindrone acetate (Aygestin®)

Oral Contraceptives : 

Oral Contraceptives Combination of estrogen and progestin Loestrin®, Levora®, Nordette®, Ovocon®, Norinyl® plus many others Minipill: progestin only Micronor®, Nor-Q.D.®, Orvette® Prime side effect:  risk of thromboembolism

Uterine Stimulants & Relaxants : 

Uterine Stimulants & Relaxants Stimulants (Oxytocics)  uterine contraction Indication: Induce labor Postpartum hemorrhage oxytocin (Pitocin®) ergonovine (Ergotrate®) Relaxants (tocolytics) Relax uterine smooth muscle Beta2 agonists terbutaline (Brethine®) ritodrine (Yuptopar®)

Infertility Agents : 

Infertility Agents Promote maturation of ovarian follicles clomiphene (Clomid®) urofollitropin (Metrodin®)

Male Reproductive Agents : 

Male Reproductive Agents Testosterone Replacement methyltestosterone (Metandren®) fluoxymesterone (Halotestin®) Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy Surgery finasteride (Proscar®)

Sexual Behavior : 

Sexual Behavior Most are side effects from other medications Antihypertensives & psychoactive drugs sildenafil (Viagra®)
