adenoma of the prostate
Increase in the volume of the prostate gland located under the bladder of the man. This increase in volume is benign, has no relationship to cancer, but can interfere with the passage of urine into the urethra through the gland.
Symptoms that suggest the presence of a prostate adenoma are:
- difficulty urinating (slowness, weakness of the spray);
- the need to get up several times at night to urinate;
- urges to urinate imperiously and difficult to control.
Affection healed or always in evolution. The antecedent may be personal or family. The background is the history of a person's health.
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.
Medication that opposes different effects of histamine. Two main types exist: antihistamines type H1 (antiallergic) and antihistamines type H2 (gastric antiulcer). Some antihistamines of type H1 are sedative, others do not alter vigilance.

Adverse effects of atropinic drugs include: thickening of bronchial secretions, dry mouth and mucous membranes, constipation, risk of urine blockage and acute glaucoma in susceptible persons, accommodation disorders, abnormal sensitivity to light by dilation of the pupil. Taking several atropine medicines increases the risk of adverse effects. In the event of overdose or accidental ingestion, the following signs may also appear: red and warm skin, fever, acceleration of breathing, fall or, on the contrary, elevated blood pressure, agitation, hallucinations, poor coordination of movements. Emergency care should be given to your doctor or, if not available, call 15, 112 or an emergency medical service.
In addition to atropine and its derivatives, other drugs have atropine effects: imipraminic antidepressants, some antihistamines, antispasmodics, antiparkinsonian and neuroleptic.
Disease usually associates a feeling of fatigue, uselessness, guilt, inability to perform daily tasks. Loss of appetite and sleep disorders are common. Suicidal impulses are one of the signs of severity of depression.
Disease characterized by increased pressure of the fluids contained in the eye (intraocular hypertension).
This general term covers two totally different affections:
- Open angle glaucoma or chronic glaucoma is the most frequent; it is generally symptom-free, detected by the measurement of intraocular tension in the ophthalmologist. It does not cause acute seizures, and treatment relies primarily on beta-blocking eye drops. People with open-angle glaucoma should not use cortisone derivatives without prior ophthalmologic advice.
- Closed-angle glaucoma or acute glaucoma is more rare. Between seizures, intraocular tension is normal. But the inadvertent use of atropine medicines (especially eye drops) causes an acute crisis of intraocular hypertension which can permanently damage the retina in a few hours. It is an ophthalmological emergency that is recognized by a brutally red eye, horribly painful, hard as a glass ball, and whose vision becomes blurred.
Contraindications for atropine medicines are limited to those who have already had closed-angle glaucoma or who have been detected by an ophthalmologist. Those who suffer from chronic open-angle glaucoma are not affected by these contraindications.

Family of medicines used in the treatment of certain nervous disorders or various symptoms: digestive disorders, menopausal disorders, etc.
A chemical family that includes opium and its derivatives. In addition to drugs such as opium or heroin, the opiate family includes morphine (strong analgesic), codeine (antitussive and analgesic) and many other substances.
