analgesics definition: Drugs that reduce pain. These drugs include aspirin, acetaminophen, and ibuprofen.
Analgesic Preparation definition: Natural or synthetic compound mixtures, Analgesic Preparations relieve pain by altering the perception of nociceptive stimuli without loss of consciousness. Analgesic compounds may act at opioid receptors (morphine-like drugs) or at other central or peripheral sites (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents). (NCI04)
Analgesic Agent definition: Compounds that alleviate pain without loss of consciousness. Analgesics act by various mechanisms including binding with opioid receptors and decreasing inflammation. Choice of analgesic may be determined by the type of pain. These compounds include opioid, non-opioid and adjuvant analgesic agents.
Antacids definition: Substances that counteract or neutralize acidity of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT.
antacid definition: group of agents that counteract or neutralize acidity, used mainly for the treatment of gastrointestinal irritation or ulcers.
Antacid Preparation definition: Natural or synthetic compounds or mixtures, Antiacid Preparations such as sodium bicarbonate, sodium citrate, and phosphate salts act as proton acceptors, neutralizing the acidity of a biologic environment (skin, gastric content, urine, etc.) and raising the pH. These agents are used topically or systemically for management of metabolic acidosis, improved muscle contraction, and hyper-acidic conditions (preventing, counteracting, or neutralizing stomach acidity). (NCI04)

Echinacea Extract definition: An over-the-counter herbal remedy, extracted from North American herb purple coneflower belonging to the Family Asteraceae, with potential immunostimulating and anti-inflammatory activities. Echinacea extract might be helpful to boost the body's immune system and to help fight infections, especially those of the upper respiratory tract. This herbal remedy seems to increase the growth and activity of immune cells, including white blood cells, macrophages and natural killer cells, and to stimulate phagocytosis. Furthermore, echinacoside, one of the components in Echinacea extract, has been shown to inhibit hyaluronidase, whose action increases tissue permeability, thereby Echinacea extract may promote tissue growth for wound healing by preventing bacteria spreading into healthy cells.
Antihypertensive Preparation definition: Natural or synthetic Antihypertensive Preparations reduce elevated blood pressure through diverse mechanisms: calcium channel (and conductance) blockage, beta- and alpha-adrenergic blockage, angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibition, etc.. Their effects induce diuresis and peripheral vasodilation. (NCI04)
Antirheumatic Preparation definition: Used systemically or topically, natural or synthetic Antirheumatic Preparations relieve and control the symptoms of rheumatic diseases (rheumatoid arthritis) by reducing inflammation and pain, or reinstating mobility and function of articulations. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), corticosteroids, and immunosuppressive cytotoxics are examples of antirheumatic agents. (NCI04)
Asthma Preparation definition: Containing natural or synthetic agents, Asthma Preparations relieve asthma (a recurrent airway obstruction) in various ways by reducing bronchial spasm, dyspnea, allergic reaction, local inflammation, and pain. Anti-asthmatic agents can be mainly bronchodilators (beta-adrenoreceptor agonists, xanthines, muscarinic-receptor antagonists) and anti-inflammatory agents (glucocorticoids, cromolyn). Other agents, such as anti-histamines and antibiotics, may be used in asthma preparations. (NCI04)
