General name designating a family of substances that have the property of being able to be mixed with water and fatty substances. The most common alcohol is ethyl alcohol (ethanol), but there are many other alcohols: methanol, butanol, etc. The degree of alcoholic solution corresponds to the volume of pure alcohol present in 100 ml of solution, knowing that 1 glass of wine or 1/2 of beer (25 cl) contains about 8 g of alcohol.
When alcohol is used as an antiseptic, an unpleasant odor denaturant is often added to prevent drinking. Contrary to a widespread belief, alcohol at 70o (or even at 60o) is a better antiseptic than alcohol at 90o.
Medication that works against depression. Some antidepressants are also used to combat obsessive-compulsive disorder, generalized anxiety, certain rebellious pain, enuresis, etc.
Depending on their mode of action and adverse effects, antidepressants are divided into different families: imipraminic antidepressants, serotonin reuptake inhibitors, selective or non-selective MAOIs. Finally, other antidepressants do not belong to any of these families, because they possess original properties.
The mode of action of antidepressants has two main aspects: the relief of moral suffering and the fight against inhibition which removes all will to action from the depressed. There may be a time lag between these two effects: moral suffering may persist, while the capacity for action reappears. During this short period, the risk of suicide in some depressed people can be increased. The physician takes it into account in its prescription (possible association with a tranquillizer) and it must imperatively be respected.
Disease characterized by difficulty breathing, often resulting in wheezing. Asthma, permanent or occurring by crisis, is due to a narrowing and inflammation of the bronchi.
Abnormal bronchial contraction resulting in difficult and often wheezing breathing. Bronchospasm is one of the factors responsible for asthma.

Reduction, or even cessation of respiration, by inhibition of the nervous centers which command the movements of inspiration and expiration.
Abbreviation for mono-amine oxidase inhibitor. Family of drugs used in psychiatry and neurology (depression, Parkinson's disease). These drugs are divided into non-selective MAOIs, which are incompatible with many drugs and even certain foods, and selective MAOIs (A or B), for which these disadvantages are absent or limited.

Inability of the lungs to properly oxygenate the blood and remove excess carbon dioxide.
Family of medicines used in the treatment of certain nervous disorders or various symptoms: digestive disorders, menopausal disorders, etc.
Child less than one month old.

Quantity and distribution of the dose of a drug according to the age, weight and general condition of the patient.
Allergy edema usually affects the face. Quincke edema results in a sometimes spectacular swelling. Eyelids are often the first to be affected. In rare cases where edema affects the throat, respiratory problems may occur and urgent treatment is required.
Reaction due to hypersensitivity of the organism to a drug. Allergic reactions can take a wide variety of aspects: urticaria, angioedema, eczema, eruption of pimples resembling measles, etc. Anaphylactic shock is a generalized allergic reaction that causes discomfort due to a sudden drop in blood pressure.

Dry cough is an irritant cough that is not accompanied by any sputum and can have many causes. Several solutions can cure a dry cough in adults ... Cough suppressants are usually in syrup form and sometimes in the form of tablets or chewing gum. They are indicated in cases of irritative and dry cough. By acting on the cough control center located in the medulla of the brain, they abolish the cough reflex. So if misused, especially in case of cough, they can be harmful and cause bronchial congestion. The challenge is to identify drug antitussive (which usually includes several active ingredients).
It is therefore recommended:
- To read the composition on the instructions for use;
- To avoid a drug combining the active ingredients cough suppressants and mucolytics (which, on the contrary, promote cough) and ask if needed the advice of your pharmacist.
