Uses

This medication is used alone or with other medications to treat high pressure inside the eye due to glaucoma (open-angle type) or other eye diseases (e. g. ocular hypertension ). Lowering high pressure inside the eye helps to prevent blindness. Levobunolol belongs to a class of drugs known as beta blockers and works by decreasing the amount of fluid production within the eye .

How to use levobunolol ophthalmic

To apply eye drops, wash your hands first. To avoid contamination, do not touch the dropper tip or let it touch your eye or any other surface.

If you are wearing contact lenses. remove them before using eye drops. Wait at least 15 minutes before replacing your contact lenses .

Tilt your head back, look upward, and pull down the lower eyelid to make a pouch. Hold the dropper directly over your eye and place one drop into the pouch, usually once or twice daily or as directed by your doctor. Look downward and gently close your eyes for 1 to 2 minutes. Place one finger at the corner of your eye (near the nose) and apply gentle pressure. This will prevent the medication from draining out. Try not to blink and do not rub your eye. Repeat these steps for your other eye if so directed or if your dose is for more than 1 drop.

Do not rinse the dropper. Replace the dropper cap after each use.

If you are using another kind of eye medication (e. g. drops or ointments), wait at least 5 to 10 minutes before using the other medications. Use eye drops before eye ointments to allow the eye drops to enter the eye.

Asmal Opening Of North Sea Jazz Festival - S Duotone Gallery (09, K-Asmal

Asmal: Opening of North Sea Jazz Festival's Duotone Gallery (09/04/2004)

Date: 09/04/2004 Source: Department of Education Title: K Asmal: Opening of North Sea Jazz Festival's Duotone Gallery

ADDRESS BY PROFESSOR KADER ASMAL, MP, MINISTER OF EDUCATION, AT THE OPENING OF THE NORTH SEA JAZZ FESTIVAL, CAPE TOWN'S DUOTONE GALLERY, CAPE TOWN INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION CENTRE, 9 April 2004

It is a great pleasure to be with you tonight as we open this brilliant exhibition of jazz photography. We celebrate tonight the new exhibition space for the Duotone Gallery in the Cape Town International Convention Centre. Since the beginning of the North Sea Jazz Festival in 2000, we have had photographic exhibitions. Photography has been an important part of our annual celebration of jazz. Tonight's opening is a step up in making jazz photography a permanent part of our artistic life in Cape Town.

We are surrounded by the work of three great artists. We have the work of the great jazz photographer, Herman Leonard. For many years, Herman Leonard has been the "Eye of Jazz". His early photographs from the late 1940s and early 1950s gave us powerful and enduring images of greatness - Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Theolonius Monk, Count Bassie, Billie Holliday, Louis Armstrong, Sara Vaughn, Miles Davis, and John Coltrane. His exhibitions have helped us to keep these images alive all over the world.

We have the work of Alf Khumalo. From the early 1950s, Alf Khumalo's photographs have captured ordinary life in South Africa and they have given us enduring images of our extraordinary political leaders - from Albert Luthuli to Thabo Mbeki - in our struggle for a better life for all South Africans. His photographs have been very important in helping us see who we are.

And we have the work of George Hallett, who left South Africa in 1970, exiled in London, Paris, and Amsterdam, but returned in 1995 to cast his expert eye on our recent past and possible future. His collection of South African photography, celebrating our ten years of freedom and democracy, deserves special mention.

Like Herman Leonard, our South African photographers have given us powerful images of jazz. They have documented our musicians in South Africa and in the furthest reaches of exile.

They have also been teachers. Seriously, for a moment, in my capacity as Minister of Education, I want to acknowledge the work that has been done by both Alf Khumalo and George Hallett in training young South African photographers. They are both masters of their art. They are also both teachers. Alf Khumalo has opened a photographic school in Soweto so that young, aspiring photographers will not have to deal with the hardships he faced in starting out without any training. Likewise, George Hallett is a teacher of photography, teaching all over the world, but also actively involved in running workshops and courses for young photographers in South Africa. So, I want to recognise and praise their efforts in education.

But we are not here to honour education. We are here for the music. Jazz is music, our music. But jazz is also the wellspring of so much of our life in the creative and performing arts.

Jazz, our music, is also writing. Some of the best, most vibrant writing has come from jazz. I remember the jazz writing of Todd Matshikiza, who wrote during 1950s for Drum. He could write. He wrote about jazz. But he also wrote jazz, collaborating on the production of the musical, which was first performed in 1959, "King Kong - An African Jazz Opera." This jazz opera required jazz writing. It required writing that was immediate and strong. It required writing of simplicity and complexity. It required lyrics like this:

King Kong, strong as a lion King Kong, bigger than Cape Town King Kong, listens to no one That's me; I'm him, right now

That phrase - "right now" - of course was the simplest, but most complex, lyric in the entire jazz opera. Right now was 1959; right now was apartheid; right now was a world that tried to make us weak and prevent us from being as strong as a lion. In that time, in that "right now", jazz made us feel as strong as King Kong. We could play, and we could write.

One of the effects of apartheid education was the damage it did to our writing. Christian National Education and Bantu Education drained life out of writing. Under apartheid, our schooling made writing dull and flat. We see this in the writing of all of our students, black and white. For the most part, our students were taught by apartheid education to write dead prose.

We still need to bring our writing to life. We need more jazz writing. I am delighted to see seminars for writers that have been put together by the North Sea Jazz Festival and the Institute for the Advancement of Journalism. This is important. We need to bring jazz back to our writing.

Jazz is music. But jazz is also art, photography, and powerful imagery.

We know the iconic imagery of American jazz - Dizzy and Miles, Bird and Coltrane, Ella and Lady Day. We are in the presence of some of the most powerful of these images at this exhibition. These images are an important counterpoint to the music. They show us life of jazz. They show us music in its dynamic tension and its quiet relaxation, in its mysterious shadows and its curling smoke, in its interplay of light and dark.

In South Africa, however, we needed images of our players for a very specific reason. We needed these images as ammunition in the struggle against forces that were trying to make us invisible. We needed photographic evidence - we needed visible testimony - to the very fact that we existed.

So many of us were in exile - Hugh Masekela, Miriam Makeba, Abdullah Ibrahim, and so many others. Our people in South Africa needed photographs of them to prove that they were alive and well. We needed evidence that even in exile they were still with the people of South Africa.

Within apartheid South Africa, so many of us were condemned to invisibility. Apartheid tried to erase us. South African jazz has a strange history in which many of our artists were heard but not seen. During the apartheid era, the great saxophonist Winston Mankunku Ngozi played at Cape Town City Hall. But he was hidden behind a screen, while a white man, who was billed as "Winston Mann", stood in front of the audience and pretended to play. The audience could hear - but it could not see - the source of the music.

For the old South African Broadcasting Corporation, this trick of invisibility was even easier to play on radio. For example, the music of trumpeter Johnny Mekoa was played on the radio, but he was called "Johnny Keen". The music of pianist Tony Schilder was played, but he was called "Peter Evans." Their music might have sounded black, but their names on the radio sounded white.

Under these conditions, photography was more than illustration. Photography was a powerful defence of our visibility in the ongoing struggle against the forces that tried to make us invisible.

So, tonight, we celebrate our music and our visibility. We can be heard, in our music, and we can be seen, fully visible - in powerful images captured and conveyed by our artists of photography.

In the art of photography, I have always preferred images in black and white. In the interplay of light and dark, we see so much subtlety, so much nuance, and so much complexity. Black and white photography, I have always felt, draws us into the photograph.

In my life, images that had the greatest impact - and stayed with me - were photographs in black and white.

When I think of photographs, I think of powerful images in black and white that have remained with me. I think of an exhibition that I saw at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC, of the photographic record of people, ordinary people living and working, suffering and unemployed, during the Great Depression in the United States. I think of the first images that came out of the death camps at Buchenwald - pictures of survivors and pictures of mass graves - that galvanised my interest in human rights when I was young. I think of the photograph of Hector Peterson, dying in Sharpeville, living on at the heart of our struggle.

So, I might dream in colour, but I remember in and through these vivid black and white photographs.

Looking at Herman Leonard's black and white photographs, I see the music. I see the sound. Of course, I know that we are not supposed to see sounds. We are supposed to hear sounds. We are not supposed to see sounds. That is called synesthesia - seeing sounds, hearing colours - that only people who are mystics or crazy can achieve. But when I look at these photographs I can see the music.

I look at his image of Charlie Parker and I see the light flashing out of the darkness. I see the light on Charlie Parkers fingertips. I see the light glistening on his instrument. I see the light playing off his face as he reaches out of the darkness, including his own darkness, to achieve the highest illumination of sound. Seeing all that, I can see the music.

I look at his image of Miles Davis and I see tension and relaxation. I see calm and I see the storm. I see the horn. And I see the man. He is looking down. He is taking us up. Seeing all that, I can see the music.

So, I celebrate this exhibition. I celebrate our artists - Herman Leonard, Alf Khumalo, and George Hallett. And I celebrate our music, which they have helped us to see with new eyes.

Let us look at their art and see the music.

I thank you all.

Terramycin - Fda Prescribing Information, Side Effects And Uses, Terramicina

Terramycin

Terramycin Description

Oxytetracycline is a product of the metabolism of Streptomyces rimosus and is one of the family of tetracycline antibiotics. A 1 percent solution in water is acidic (pH about 2.5). Its potency is affected in solutions more acid than pH 2 and it is rapidly destroyed by alkali hydroxides.

Oxytetracycline diffuses readily through the placenta into the fetal circulation, into the pleural fluid and, under some circumstances, into the cerebrospinal fluid. It appears to be concentrated in the hepatic system and excreted in the bile, so that it appears in the feces, as well as in the urine, in a biologically active form.

Inert ingredients in the formulation are: glucosamine hydrochloride; hard gelatin capsules (which may contain Red 3, Yellow 10 and other inert ingredients); magnesium stearate; sodium lauryl sulfate; starch.

ACTIONS

Oxytetracycline is primarily bacteriostatic and is thought to exert its antimicrobial effect by the inhibition of protein synthesis. Oxytetracycline is active against a wide range of gram-negative and gram-positive organisms.

The drugs in the tetracycline class have closely similar antimicrobial spectra, and cross resistance among them is common. Microorganisms may be considered susceptible if the M. I.C. (minimum inhibitory concentration) is not more than 4.0 mcg/ml and intermediate if the M. I.C. is 4.0 to 12.5 mcg/ml.

Susceptibility plate testing: A tetracycline disc may be used to determine microbial susceptibility to drugs in the tetracycline class. If the Kirby-Bauer method of disc susceptibility testing is used, a 30 mcg tetracycline disc should give a zone of at least 19 mm when tested against a tetracycline-susceptible bacterial strain.

Tetracyclines are readily absorbed and are bound to plasma proteins in varying degree. They are concentrated by the liver in the bile, and excreted in the urine and feces at high concentrations and in a biologically active form.

INDICATIONS

Oxytetracycline is indicated in infections caused by the following microorganisms:

Rickettsiae (Rocky Mountain spotted fever, typhus fever and the typhus group, Q fever, rickettsialpox and tick fevers),

Mycoplasma pneumoniae (PPLO, Eaton Agent),

Agents of psittacosis and ornithosis,

Agents of lymphogranuloma venereum and granuloma inguinale,

The spirochetal agent of relapsing fever ( Borrelia recurrentis ).

The following gram negative microorganisms:

Haemophilus ducreyi (chancroid),

Pasteurella pestis. and Pasteurella tularensis ,

Bartonella bacilliformis ,

Bacteroides species,

Vibrio comma and Vibrio fetus ,

Brucella species (in conjunction with streptomycin).

Because many strains of the following groups of microorganisms have been shown to be resistant to tetracyclines, culture and susceptibility testing are recommended.

Oxytetracycline is indicated for treatment of infections caused by the following gram-negative microorganisms, when bacteriologic testing indicates appropriate susceptibility to the drug:

Escherichia coli ,

Enterobacter aerogenes (formerly Aerobacter aerogenes ),

Shigella species,

Mima species and Herellea species,

Haemophilus influenzae (respiratory infections),

Klebsiella species (respiratory and urinary infections).

Oxytetracycline is indicated for treatment of infections caused by the following gram-positive microorganisms when bacteriologic testing indicates appropriate susceptibility to the drug:

Up to 44 percent of strains of Streptococcus pyogenes and 74 percent of Streptococcus faecalis have been found to be resistant to tetracycline drugs. Therefore, tetracyclines should not be used for streptococcal disease unless the organism has been demonstrated to be sensitive.

For upper respiratory infections due to Group A beta-hemolytic streptococci, penicillin is the usual drug of choice, including prophylaxis of rheumatic fever.

Staphylococcus aureus. skin and soft-tissue infections. Oxytetracycline is not the drug of choice in the treatment of any type of staphylococcal infections.

When penicillin is contraindicated, tetracyclines are alternative drugs in the treatment of infections due to:

Neisseria gonorrhoeae ,

Treponema pallidum and Treponema pertenue (syphilis and yaws),

Listeria monocytogenes ,

Clostridium species,

Bacillus anthracis ,

Fusobacterium fusiforme (Vincent's infection),

Actinomyces species.

In acute intestinal amebiasis, the tetracyclines may be a useful adjunct to amebicides.

In severe acne, the tetracyclines may be useful adjunctive therapy.

Tetracyclines are indicated in the treatment of trachoma, although the infectious agent is not always eliminated, as judged by immunofluorescence.

Inclusion conjunctivitis may be treated with oral tetracyclines or with a combination of oral and topical agents.

Contraindications

This drug is contraindicated in persons who have shown hypersensitivity to any of the tetracyclines.

Warnings

THE USE OF DRUGS OF THE TETRACYCLINE CLASS DURING TOOTH DEVELOPMENT (LAST HALF OF PREGNANCY, INFANCY, AND CHILDHOOD TO THE AGE OF 8 YEARS) MAY CAUSE PERMANENT DISCOLORATION OF THE TEETH (YELLOW-GRAY-BROWN). This adverse reaction is more common during long term use of the drugs but has been observed following repeated short term courses. Enamel hypoplasia has also been reported. TETRACYCLINE DRUGS, THEREFORE, SHOULD NOT BE USED IN THIS AGE GROUP UNLESS OTHER DRUGS ARE NOT LIKELY TO BE EFFECTIVE OR ARE CONTRAINDICATED .

If renal impairment exists, even usual oral or parenteral doses may lead to excessive systemic accumulation of the drug and possible liver toxicity. Under such conditions, lower than usual total doses are indicated and, if therapy is prolonged, serum level determinations of the drug may be advisable.

Photosensitivity manifested by an exaggerated sunburn reaction has been observed in some individuals taking tetracyclines. Patients apt to be exposed to direct sunlight or ultraviolet light should be advised that this reaction can occur with tetracycline drugs, and treatment should be discontinued at the first evidence of skin erythema.

The antianabolic action of the tetracyclines may cause an increase in BUN. While this is not a problem in those with normal renal function, in patients with significantly impaired function, higher serum levels of tetracycline may lead to azotemia, hyperphosphatemia, and acidosis.

Usage in pregnancy: (See above WARNINGS about use during tooth development.)

Results of animal studies indicate that tetracyclines cross the placenta, are found in fetal tissues and can have toxic effects on the developing fetus (often related to retardation of skeletal development). Evidence of embryotoxicity has also been noted in animals treated early in pregnancy.

Usage in newborns, infants, and children. (See above WARNINGS about use during tooth development.)

All tetracyclines form a stable calcium complex in any bone forming tissue. A decrease in the fibula growth rate has been observed in prematures given oral tetracycline in doses of 25 mg/kg every 6 hours. This reaction was shown to be reversible when the drug was discontinued.

Tetracyclines are present in the milk of lactating women who are taking a drug in this class.

Precautions

As with other antibiotic preparations, use of this drug may result in overgrowth of nonsusceptible organisms, including fungi. If superinfection occurs, the antibiotic should be discontinued and appropriate therapy instituted.

In venereal diseases when coexistent syphilis is suspected, a dark field examination should be done before treatment is started and the blood serology repeated monthly for at least 4 months.

Because tetracyclines have been shown to depress plasma prothrombin activity, patients who are on anticoagulant therapy may require downward adjustment of their anticoagulant dosage.

In long term therapy, periodic laboratory evaluation of organ systems, including hematopoietic, renal and hepatic studies should be performed.

All infections due to Group A beta-hemolytic streptococci should be treated for at least 10 days.

Since bacteriostatic drugs may interfere with the bactericidal action of penicillin, it is advisable to avoid giving tetracycline in conjunction with penicillin.

Adverse Reactions

Gastrointestinal: anorexia, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, glossitis, dysphagia, enterocolitis, and inflammatory lesions (with monilial overgrowth) in the anogenital region. These reactions have been caused by both the oral and parenteral administration of tetracyclines. Rare instances of esophagitis and esophageal ulcerations have been reported in patients receiving capsule and tablet forms of drugs in the tetracycline class. Most of these patients took medications immediately before going to bed. (See DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION .)

Skin: maculopapular and erythematous rashes. Exfoliative dermatitis has been reported but is uncommon. Photosensitivity is discussed above. (See WARNINGS .)

Renal toxicity: Rise in BUN has been reported and is apparently dose related. (See WARNINGS .)

Hypersensitivity reactions: Urticaria, angioneurotic edema, anaphylaxis, anaphylactoid purpura, pericarditis and exacerbation of systemic lupus erythematosus.

Bulging fontanels in infants and benign intracranial hypertension in adults have been reported in individuals receiving full therapeutic dosages. These conditions disappeared rapidly when the drug was discontinued.

Blood: Hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia, neutropenia and eosinophilia have been reported.

When given over prolonged periods, tetracyclines have been reported to produce brown-black microscopic discoloration of thyroid glands. No abnormalities of thyroid function studies are known to occur.

Terramycin Dosage and Administration

Adults: Usual daily dose, 1–2 g divided in four equal doses, depending on the severity of the infection.

For children above eight years of age: Usual daily dose, 10–20 mg per pound (25–50 mg/kg) of body weight divided in four equal doses.

Therapy should be continued for at least 24–48 hours after symptoms and fever have subsided.

For treatment of brucellosis, 500 mg oxytetracycline four times daily for 3 weeks should be accompanied by streptomycin, 1 gram intramuscularly twice daily the first week, and once daily the second week.

For treatment of uncomplicated gonorrhea, when penicillin is contraindicated, tetracycline may be used for the treatment of both males and females in the following divided dosage schedule: 1.5 grams initially followed by 0.5 gram q. i.d. for a total of 9.0 grams.

For treatment of syphilis, a total of 30–40 grams in equally divided doses over a period of 10–15 days should be given. Close follow-up, including laboratory tests, is recommended.

Administration of adequate amounts of fluid along with capsule and tablet forms of drugs in the tetracycline class is recommended to wash down the drugs and reduce the risk of esophageal irritation and ulceration. (See ADVERSE REACTIONS .)

Concomitant therapy: Antacids containing aluminum, calcium, or magnesium impair absorption and should not be given to patients taking oral tetracyclines.

Food and some dairy products also interfere with absorption. Oral forms of tetracyclines should be given 1 hour before or 2 hours after meals. Pediatric oral dosage forms should not be given with milk formulas and should be given at least 1 hour prior to feeding.

In patients with renal impairment (See WARNINGS .) Total dosage should be decreased by reduction of recommended individual doses and/or by extending time intervals between doses.

In the treatment of streptococcal infections, a therapeutic dose of oxytetracycline should be administered for at least 10 days.

How is Terramycin Supplied

Terramycin (oxytetracycline HCl) Capsules are available as opaque, yellow, hard gelatin capsules which contain oxytetracycline HCl equivalent to 250 mg of oxytetracycline, and glucosamine hydrochloride: bottles of 100 (NDC 0069-0730-66), 500 (NDC 0069-0730-73).

Ciprofloxacin may mask or delay the symptoms of syphilis. It is not effective against syphilis infections.

Ciprofloxacin extended-release tablets are only used to treat urinary tract infections, including acute uncomplicated pyelonephritis.

Proquin® XR tablets are only used to treat uncomplicated or simple urinary tract infections (acute cystitis).

Ciprofloxacin belongs to the class of drugs known as quinolone antibiotics. It works by killing bacteria or preventing their growth. However, ciprofloxacin will not work for colds, flu, or other virus infections.

ciprofloxacin is available only with your doctor's prescription.

Before Using ciprofloxacin

In deciding to use a medicine, the risks of taking the medicine must be weighed against the good it will do. This is a decision you and your doctor will make. For ciprofloxacin, the following should be considered:

Allergies

Tell your doctor if you have ever had any unusual or allergic reaction to ciprofloxacin or any other medicines. Also tell your health care professional if you have any other types of allergies, such as to foods, dyes, preservatives, or animals. For non-prescription products, read the label or package ingredients carefully.

Pediatric

Appropriate studies performed to date have not demonstrated pediatric-specific problems that would limit the usefulness of ciprofloxacin in children. However, because of ciprofloxacin's toxicity, it should be used with caution, after other medicines have been considered and found ineffective. Ciprofloxacin oral liquid or tablets may be used in children to prevent anthrax infection after possible exposure, and to treat serious kidney infections.

Appropriate studies have not been performed on the relationship of age to the effects of ciprofloxacin extended-release tablets in the pediatric population. Safety and efficacy have not been established.

Geriatric

Appropriate studies performed to date have not demonstrated geriatric-specific problems that would limit the usefulness of ciprofloxacin in the elderly. However, elderly patients are more likely to have age-related kidney or heart problems, or develop severe tendon problems (including tendon rupture), which may require caution in patients receiving ciprofloxacin.

Pregnancy

Breast Feeding

Studies in women suggest that this medication poses minimal risk to the infant when used during breastfeeding.

Interactions with Medicines

Although certain medicines should not be used together at all, in other cases two different medicines may be used together even if an interaction might occur. In these cases, your doctor may want to change the dose, or other precautions may be necessary. When you are taking ciprofloxacin, it is especially important that your healthcare professional know if you are taking any of the medicines listed below. The following interactions have been selected on the basis of their potential significance and are not necessarily all-inclusive.

Using ciprofloxacin with any of the following medicines is not recommended. Your doctor may decide not to treat you with this medication or change some of the other medicines you take.

Proper Use of ciprofloxacin

Take ciprofloxacin only as directed by your doctor . Do not take more of it, do not take it more often, and do not take it for a longer time than your doctor ordered.

ciprofloxacin comes with a Medication Guide. Read and follow the instructions carefully. Ask your doctor if you have any questions.

ciprofloxacin works best when there is a constant amount in the blood or urine. To help keep the amount constant, do not miss any doses. Also, it is best to take the doses at evenly spaced times, day and night. For example, if you are to take one dose a day, try to take it at the same time each day.

If you need to take ciprofloxacin for anthrax infection . your doctor will want you to begin taking it as soon as possible after you are exposed to anthrax.

Swallow the extended-release tablet whole. Do not crush, split, or chew it.

Shake the oral liquid for at least 15 seconds just before each use. The oral liquid has small microcapsules floating in it. These microcapsules may look like bubbles or small beads. Do not chew the microcapsules when you take the oral liquid . Measure the oral liquid with the marked measuring spoon that comes with the bottle.

You may take ciprofloxacin with or without food. However, Proquin® XR tablets should be taken with a main meal, preferably the evening meal.

Drink plenty of fluids while you are taking ciprofloxacin. Drinking extra water will help prevent some unwanted effects of ciprofloxacin.

Do not take ciprofloxacin alone with milk, yogurt, or other dairy products. Do not drink any juice with calcium added when you take ciprofloxacin. It is okay to have dairy products or juice as part of a larger meal when you take ciprofloxacin.

If you are taking aluminum or magnesium-containing antacids, iron supplements, multivitamins, didanosine (Videx®), lanthanum carbonate (Fosrenol®), sevelamer (Renagel®), sucralfate (Carafate®), or any products containing calcium or zinc, do not take them at the same time that you take ciprofloxacin. It is best to take these medicines at least 2 hours before or 4 to 6 hours after taking ciprofloxacin . These medicines may keep ciprofloxacin from working properly.

Keep using ciprofloxacin for the full treatment time . even if you feel better after the first few doses. Your infection may not clear up if you stop using the medicine too soon.

Precautions While Using ciprofloxacin

It is very important that your doctor check your or your child's progress while you are using ciprofloxacin . This will allow your doctor to see if the medicine is working properly and to decide if you should continue to use it. Blood and urine tests may be needed to check for unwanted effects.

If your or your child's symptoms do not improve within a few days, or if they become worse, check with your doctor.

Do not use ciprofloxacin if you are also taking tizanidine (Zanaflex®). Tell your doctor if you or your child are also using theophylline (Theo-Dur®) or other products that contain caffeine (eg, coffee, soda, chocolate). Using these medicines together may increase risks for more serious side effects .

Ciprofloxacin may rarely cause inflammation (tendinitis) or tearing of a tendon (the cord that attaches muscles to bones). This can occur while you are taking the medicine or after you finish taking it. The risk of having tendon problems may be increased if you are over 60 years of age, are using steroid medicines (eg, dexamethasone, prednisolone, prednisone, Medrol®), have severe kidney problems, have a history of tendon problems (eg, rheumatoid arthritis), or if you have received an organ transplant (eg, heart, kidney, or lung). Check with your doctor right away if you have sudden pain or swelling in a tendon after exercise (eg, ankle, back of the knee or leg, shoulder, elbow, or wrist), bruise more easily after an injury, or are unable to bear weight or move the affected area. Refrain from exercise until your doctor says otherwise.

ciprofloxacin may cause serious allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis, which can be life-threatening and require immediate medical attention. Call your doctor right away if you or your child have a rash, itching, hives, hoarseness, trouble breathing, trouble swallowing, or any swelling of your hands, face, mouth, or throat after you take ciprofloxacin.

Serious side effects can occur during treatment with ciprofloxacin. Sometimes serious side effects can occur without warning. However, possible warning signs are including black, tarry stools, blistering, peeling, or loosening of the skin, bloody or cloudy urine, chills, decreased urination, diarrhea, fever, joint or muscle pain, red skin lesions, often with a purple center, sores, ulcers, or white spots in the mouth or on the lips, severe stomach pain, skin rash, swelling of the face, fingers, feet, and/or lower legs, unusual bleeding or bruising, unusual weight gain, or yellow skin or eyes. Stop taking ciprofloxacin and check with your doctor immediately if you or your child notice any of these warning signs .

Check with your doctor right away if you have dark urine, clay-colored stools, abdominal or stomach pain, or yellow eyes or skin. These maybe symptoms of a serious liver problem.

Ciprofloxacin may cause diarrhea, and in some cases it can be severe. It may occur 2 months or more after you or your child stop taking ciprofloxacin. Do not take any medicine to treat diarrhea without first checking with your doctor. Diarrhea medicines may make the diarrhea worse or make it last longer. If you have any questions about this or if mild diarrhea continues or gets worse, check with your doctor.

Check with your doctor right away if you or your child start having numbness, tingling, or burning pain in your hands, arms, legs, or feet. These may be symptoms of a condition called peripheral neuropathy.

Some people who take ciprofloxacin may become more sensitive to sunlight than they are normally. Exposure to sunlight, even for brief periods of time, may cause severe sunburn, skin rash, redness, itching, or discoloration. When you begin using ciprofloxacin:

Stay out of direct sunlight, especially between the hours of 10:00 AM and 3:00 PM, if possible.

Wear protective clothing, including a hat and sunglasses.

Apply a sun block product that has a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15. Some people may require a product with a higher SPF number, especially if they have a fair complexion. If you have any questions about this, check with your doctor.

Do not use a sun lamp or tanning bed or booth.

If you have a severe reaction from the sun, check with your doctor.

Ciprofloxacin may cause some people to become dizzy, lightheaded, drowsy, or less alert than they are normally. Make sure you know how you react to ciprofloxacin before you drive, use machines, or do anything else that could be dangerous if you are dizzy or not alert . If these reactions are especially bothersome, check with your doctor.

If you are a diabetic patient taking diabetes medicine by mouth . Ciprofloxacin may cause hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) in some patients. Symptoms of low blood sugar must be treated before they lead to unconsciousness (passing out) . Different people may feel different symptoms of low blood sugar. If you experience symptoms of low blood sugar, stop taking ciprofloxacin and check with your doctor right away:

Symptoms of low blood sugar can include: Anxious feeling, behavior change similar to being drunk, blurred vision, cold sweats, confusion, cool pale skin, difficulty with concentrating, drowsiness, excessive hunger, headache, nausea, nervousness, rapid heartbeat, shakiness, or unusual tiredness or weakness.

Do not take other medicines unless they have been discussed with your doctor. This includes prescription or nonprescription (over-the-counter [OTC]) medicines and herbal or vitamin supplements.

Fda Warning Reumofan Supplements Contain Dangerous Drugs - Abc News, Remofen

Arthritis Supplement Draws FDA Warning

Consumers searching for a miracle cure for the aches and pains of arthritis should beware: The FDA has issued a new warning about the potential health risks of Reumofan and Reumofan Plus, two products marketed as natural dietary supplements for treating arthritis, muscle pain, osteoporosis, bone cancer, and other conditions.

The FDA said it found both supplements contain several potentially dangerous ingredients that are not listed on the label. Since the first warning was issued in June, consumers have begun to speak up.

"The FDA has received dozens of additional adverse event reports, including death and stroke, associated with the use of Reumofan Plus," said Sarah Clark-Lynn, an FDA spokesperson. "Other reports include liver injury, severe bleeding, sudden worsening of glucose (sugar) control, weight gain, swelling, leg cramps and withdrawal syndrome, and adrenal suppression."

FDA lab analysis of the products revealed the presence of several prescription drugs that are linked to serious side effects, the agency said.

Dexamethasone, a corticosteroid commonly used to treat inflammatory conditions, can weaken the immune system, elevate blood sugar levels and increase the risk of bone and muscle injuries. It's also been associated with psychiatric problems.

When taken over long periods of time or in high doses, the drug may damage the adrenal glands, impairing their ability to produce hormones. Sudden discontinued use, especially when the drug has been taken long-term or in high doses, may lead to withdrawal syndrome, with users experiencing fatigue, nausea, low blood pressure, low blood sugar levels, fever, dizziness, and muscle and joint pain.

Diclofenac sodium, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) also detected in the supplements, increases the risk of cardiovascular events, such as heart attack and stroke, as well as serious gastrointestinal problems including bleeding, ulceration, and fatal perforation of the stomach and intestines. Additionally, the analysis found the muscle relaxant methocarbamol, which can cause drowsiness, dizziness, low blood pressure, and impair mental or physical abilities to perform tasks, such as driving a motor vehicle or operating machinery.

Tests on samples of Reumofan Plus found it contained diclofenac sodium and methocarbamol, the FDA said.

"The hidden drug ingredients in Reumofan Plus and Reumofan Plus Premium can lead to serious, even life-threatening, health consequences. The longer you take the products, the higher the risk," Clark-Lynn said. "Because of the hidden corticosteroid, consumers taking these products are urged to immediately consult with their doctor to safely discontinue use of the product."

Dr. Stephen Dahmer, an integrated medicine family physician in private practice at the Continuum Center for Health and Healing, Beth Israel Medical Center, said supplements can be as dangerous as medications. "Anyone can have an adverse or allergic reaction to almost any supplement so you do need to be careful about what you take and make sure you only buy reputable, high quality brands," he said.

None of his patients has taken Reumofan but he urged anyone with osteoarthritis to steer clear. And he said he's on the lookout for symptoms in patients who suffer from arthritis in case they've taken the pills without telling him.

The supplements are manufactured in Mexico by the company Riger Naturals. They are usually labeled in Spanish but may also be labeled in English. In the U. S. GNC, Vitamin Shoppe and other large national retailers don't appear to be carrying the products either on the shelves or on their websites, but they can easily be purchased on supplement websites or eBay.

The Mexican Ministry of Health issued its own health warning to the public about Reumofan and has ordered Riger Naturals to recall the products. The FDA is asking doctors and consumers to report any side effects related to the two supplements to the FDA's MedWatch Safety Information and Adverse Event Reporting Program.

Military History/Contemporary Conflict Working Group

The Working Group on the Role of Military History in Contemporary Conflict examines how knowledge of past military operations can influence contemporary public policy decisions concerning current conflicts.

As the very name of Hoover Institution attests, military history lies at the very core of our dedication to the study of "War, Revolution, and Peace." Indeed, the precise mission statement of the Hoover Institution includes the following promise: "The overall mission of this Institution is, from its records, to recall the voice of experience against the making of war, and by the study of these records and their publication, to recall man's endeavors to make and preserve peace, and to sustain for America the safeguards of the American way of life." From its origins as a library and archive, the Hoover Institution has evolved into one of the foremost research centers in the world for policy formation and pragmatic analysis. It is with this tradition in mind, that the "Working Group on the Role of Military History in Contemporary Conflict" has set its agenda—reaffirming the Hoover Institution's dedication to historical research in light of contemporary challenges, and in particular, reinvigorating the national study of military history as an asset to foster and enhance our national security. By bringing together a diverse group of distinguished military historians, security analysts, and military veterans and practitioners, the working group seeks to examine the conflicts of the past as critical lessons for the present.

Victor Davis Hanson on War in the Contemporary World — WATCH

The careful study of military history offers a way of analyzing modern war and peace that is often underappreciated in this age of technological determinism. Yet the result leads to a more in-depth and dispassionate understanding of contemporary wars, one that explains how particular military successes and failures of the past can be often germane, sometimes misunderstood, or occasionally irrelevant in the context of the present.

The working group is chaired by Victor Davis Hanson with counsel from Bruce S. Thornton and David L. Berkey, along with collaboration form the group’s distinguished scholars, military historians, analysts, journalists, and military officers.

More from Hoover

Herbert Lin is a senior research scholar for cyber policy and security at the Center for International Security and Cooperation and a research fellow at the Hoover Institution, both at Stanford University.

Rumors from Washington of a conspiracy to destroythe Federal government by assassination of its leaders prompted the threeofficers to form an organization that could help thwart future threats tothe national government.

A mass meeting of Philadelphia veterans was held on April 20, 1865 topledge renewed allegiance to the Union and to plan for participation inthe funeral arrangements for the President. The Philadelphia officers, whoserved as an honor guard for President Lincoln's funeral cortege, met again after the funeral was over to establish a permanent organizationof officers and former officers patterned after the Society of Cincinnatiestablished after the Revolutionary War. The name they chose, the MilitaryOrder of the Loyal Legion of the United States . first appearedin a notice calling a meeting on May 31, 1865 at Independence Hall.

Since its inception, the MOLLUS membership has included nearly 12,000 Civil War officers. At its zenith, the MOLLUS counted practically every prominent officeramong its ranks. Among them were Generals Ulysses S. Grant, William T. Sherman;Lt. Generals Philip H. Sheridan, Nelson A. Miles and John M. Schofield;Major General Winfield Scott Hancock, George B. McClellan, Rutherford B. Hayes, George Armstrong Custer, David McMurtrie Gregg and Grenville M. Dodge;Admiral David G. Farragut; Rear Admirals Bancroft Gherardi and George W. Melville. In addition to Ulysses S. Grant and Rutherford B. Hayes, OriginalCompanions Chester A. Arthur, Benjamin Harrison and William McKinley servedas Presidents of the United States.

With the eventual aging of the Original Companions, membershipwithin the MOLLUS was changed to provide for Hereditary Companions;descendants of eligible officers. There are currently four categories ofmembership: Hereditary, Junior, Associate and Honorary. Many Original Companionsof MOLLUS were also members of the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR). Similarly, many Hereditary Companions of MOLLUS are currently also members of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, the legal heir to the GAR. Membership information may be obtained by going to our interactive Membership Information Request form.

Organizationally, the MOLLUS is composed of a National Commandery-in-Chiefand individual state Commanderies. There are currently 20 Commanderies. Additional information regarding the MOLLUS, its history, commanderies, membership, and activities may be obtained by going to our Web Site Index page.

Hydrochlorothiazide - Blood Pressure, Osyrol Lasix

Hydrochlorothiazide is used for treating high blood pressure. It is also used to treat fluid buildup in the body caused by certain conditions (e. g. heart failure, liver cirrhosis, kidney problems) or medicines (e. g. corticosteroids, estrogen). It may be used alone or with other medicines. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.

Use Hydrochlorothiazide as directed by your doctor.

Take Hydrochlorothiazide by mouth with or without food. Hydrochlorothiazide may increase the amount of urine or cause you to urinate more often when you first start taking it. To keep this from disturbing your sleep, try to take your dose before 6 pm. Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use Hydrochlorothiazide. Drug Class and Mechanism

Hydrochlorothiazide is a thiazide diuretic. It helps the kidneys to remove fluid from the body.

If you miss a dose of Hydrochlorothiazide and are using it regularly, take it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at once.

Store Hydrochlorothiazide between 68 and 77 degrees F (20 and 25 degrees C). Brief storage at temperatures between 59 and 86 degrees F (15 and 30 degrees C) is permitted. Store away from heat, moisture, and light. Do not store in the bathroom. Keep Hydrochlorothiazide out of the reach of children and away from pets.

Do not use Hydrochlorothiazide if:

you are allergic to any ingredient in Hydrochlorothiazide; you are unable to urinate; you are taking dofetilide or ketanserin. Contact your doctor or health care provider right away if any of these apply to you.

Important : Hydrochlorothiazide may cause dizziness or blurred vision. These effects may be worse if you take it with alcohol or certain medicines. Use Hydrochlorothiazide with caution. Do not drive or perform other possibly unsafe tasks until you know how you react to it. Hydrochlorothiazide may cause dizziness, lightheadedness, or fainting; alcohol, hot weather, exercise, or fever may increase these effects. To prevent them, sit up or stand slowly, especially in the morning. Sit or lie down at the first sign of any of these effects. Your doctor may also prescribe a potassium supplement for you. If so, take the potassium supplement exactly as prescribed. Do not start taking additional potassium on your own or change your diet to include more potassium without first checking with your doctor. Tell your doctor or dentist that you take Hydrochlorothiazide before you receive any medical or dental care, emergency care, or surgery. Tell your doctor if you will be exposed to high temperatures. The risk of certain side effects (eg, low blood sodium levels) may be increased in hot weather. Hydrochlorothiazide may cause you to become sunburned more easily. Avoid the sun, sunlamps, or tanning booths until you know how you react to Hydrochlorothiazide. Use a sunscreen or wear protective clothing if you must be outside for more than a short time. Hydrochlorothiazide may raise your blood sugar. High blood sugar may make you feel confused, drowsy, or thirsty. It can also make you flush, breathe faster, or have a fruit-like breath odor. If these symptoms occur, tell your doctor right away. Diabetes patients - Check blood sugar levels closely. Ask your doctor before you change the dose of your diabetes medicine. Lab tests, including kidney function, blood pressure, and electrolyte levels, may be performed while you use Hydrochlorothiazide. These tests may be used to monitor your condition or check for side effects. Be sure to keep all doctor and lab appointments. Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Hydrochlorothiazide may cause harm to the fetus. If you become pregnant, contact your doctor. You will need to discuss the benefits and risks of using Hydrochlorothiazide while you are pregnant. Hydrochlorothiazide is found in breast milk. If you are or will be breast-feeding while you use Hydrochlorothiazide, check with your doctor. Discuss any possible risks to your baby.

Possible Side Effects

Check with your doctor if any of these most common side effects persist or become bothersome:

Constipation; diarrhea; dizziness; lightheadedness (especially when sitting up or standing); loss of appetite; nausea; temporary blurred vision. Seek medical attention right away if any of these severe side effects occur:

Severe allergic reactions (rash; hives; itching; difficulty breathing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue); confusion; dark urine; decreased urination; fainting; fast or irregular heartbeat; fever, chills, or persistent sore throat; increased thirst; joint pain, swelling, warmth, or redness (especially of the big toe joint); mental or mood changes; muscle pain or cramps; numbness or tingling; red, swollen, blistered, or peeling skin; seizures; severe or persistent dizziness; severe or persistent nausea or stomach pain; shortness of breath; unusual bruising or bleeding; unusual drowsiness, restlessness, tiredness, or weakness; unusually dry mouth; vomiting; yellowing of the eyes or skin.

If you have any questions about Hydrochlorothiazide, please talk with your doctor, pharmacist, or other health care provider. Hydrochlorothiazide is to be used only by the patient for whom it is prescribed. Do not share it with other people.

How does this medication work? What will it do for me?

Nitroglycerin belongs to the class of medications called antianginals . Nitroglycerin patches are used alone or in combination with other medications to prevent angina attacks (chest pain). Nitroglycerin reduces the number of angina attacks by relaxing blood vessels and increasing the oxygen and blood supply to the heart. The nitroglycerin patch is not intended for immediate relief of angina.

This medication may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of this medication may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of this medication may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested this medication for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles.

Do not give this medication to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to use this medication if their doctor has not prescribed it.

How should I use this medication?

The usual dose of nitroglycerin patches varies according to need. The patch is usually applied in the morning and taken off 12 to 14 hours later (leaving 10 to 12 hours overnight without the patch).

The patch may be applied to any convenient skin area – recommended sites include the upper arm, back, shoulders, or chest. Use a different application site each time. A suitable area may be shaved if necessary. Do not apply the patch to the ends of the arms or legs. Wash your hands thoroughly after application. Following use, discard the patch in a manner that prevents accidental application or ingestion by curious pets or children.

Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications.

Some people may experience side effects other than those listed. Check with your doctor if you notice any symptom that worries you while you are taking this medication.

Are there any other precautions or warnings for this medication?

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use this medication.

Acute angina attacks: Nitroglycerin patches are not intended for immediate relief of acute attacks of angina. Sublingual (under the tongue) nitroglycerin preparations (spray or tablets) should be used for this purpose.

Dizziness/reduced alertness: People using this medication may experience faintness or dizziness and reduced reaction time when driving or operating machinery, especially at the start of treatment. Avoid these and other hazardous tasks until you have determined how this medication affects you.

Heart disease: The benefits and safety of using the nitroglycerin patch have not been established for people who have had an acute heart attack or have congestive heart failure.

Low blood pressure: Headaches or symptoms of low blood pressure such as weakness or dizziness, particularly when getting up suddenly from a sitting or lying down position, may result from taking too much nitroglycerin. If these symptoms occur, your doctor may reduce the dose or have you stop using the nitroglycerin patch. People who might be negatively affected by low blood pressure should use this medication with caution. If you take diuretics or have preexisting low blood pressure, you may be at an increased risk of experiencing this effect.

Symptom changes: If your symptoms of angina increase at any time (including during the period of the day that you aren't taking the medication), be sure to tell your doctor.

Tolerance: People who use nitroglycerin may develop tolerance to the medication, resulting in it not working as well. Tolerance to other nitrates or nitrites can also happen, especially if a medication-free period is not observed each day. As tolerance to nitroglycerin patches develops, the effect of fast-acting sublingual (under the tongue) nitroglycerin is also somewhat reduced.

Pregnancy: This medication has not been studied for use by pregnant women. Be sure to tell your doctor if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant. If you become pregnant while using this medication inform your doctor as soon as possible.

Breast-feeding: It is not known if nitroglycerin passes into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are taking this medication, it may affect your baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.

Children: The safety and effectiveness of this medication for children have not been established.

Amoxicillin - Antibiotic For Dogs - Cats, Amoxicillinum

Amoxicillin

What is Amoxicillin?

Amoxicillin is a broad-spectrum penicillin antibiotic used to treat various infections caused by susceptible strains of bacteria. Amoxicillin requires a prescription from your veterinarian, and is sold per capsule or per tablet.

Broad-spectrum antibiotic that treats a wide array of bacterial infections

Treats ear infections, urinary tract infections, and skin infections (infected bite wounds)

Also effective against upper respiratory, bladder, and dental infections

Amoxicillin works by inhibiting the formation of bacterial cell walls.

Tell your veterinarian if your pet is being given another antibiotic. Also tell your veterinarian if your pet has allergies, or kidney, stomach or intestinal disease. While symptoms may subside early, use all of the prescribed medicine.

Amoxil (GlaxoSmithKline), Biomox (Delmarva), Robamox-BV (Fort Dodge), Trimox (Apothecon)

What is the most important information I should know about Amoxicillin:

Amoxicillin is a prescription medication available as 100mg and 400mg tablets, 250mg and 500mg capsules, and 50mg/ml drops. The usual dose of amoxicillin in dogs and cats is 5-10mg/pound every 12-24 hours. Contact your veterinarian immediately if your pet develops severe or bloody diarrhea. Give all of the amoxicillin that is prescribed for your pet, since symptoms may begin to improve before the infection is completely treated.

What is Amoxicillin:

Amoxicillin is a penicillin-like antibiotic that fights bacteria in the body. Amoxicillin can be used to treat infections such as ear infections, urinary tract infections, and skin infections. Amoxicillin may also be used for purposes other than those listed.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving Amoxicillin to my pet:

Tell your veterinarian if your pet has ever had an allergic reaction to another penicillin or to a cephalosporin. Tell your veterinarian if your pet has kidney disease or stomach or intestinal disease.

How should this medication be given:

Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. Amoxicillin can be given with or without food. Give all of the amoxicillin even if your pet appears to be better. Symptoms may improve before the infection is completely treated. Store tablets and capsules at room temperature. Store the suspension in the refrigerator. Discard any unused suspension after 14 days.

What happens if I miss giving a dose:

Give the missed dose as soon as you remember unless it is almost time for the next regularly scheduled dose. Do not give a double dose unless otherwise directed by your veterinarian.

What happens if I overdose the pet:

Seek emergency veterinary medical treatment if an overdose is suspected. Symptoms of overdose may include muscle spasms or weakness, pain or twitching, seizures, confusion, coma, or agitation.

What should I avoid while giving Amoxicillin to my pet:

There are no restrictions on food or activity during treatment with amoxicillin unless otherwise directed by your veterinarian.

What are the possible side effects of Amoxicillin:

Contact your veterinarian immediately if the pet experiences severe or bloody diarrhea during treatment. Stop giving amoxicillin and seek emergency veterinary medical care in the event of an allergic reaction (shortness of breath; hives; swelling of the lips, tongue, or face; rash; or fainting), seizures, unusual bleeding, or bruising. Other less serious side effects such as mild nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or abdominal pain, or yeast or fungal infection may be more likely to occur. Continue to give amoxicillin and notify your veterinarian if these symptoms occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to your pet.

What other drugs will affect Amoxicillin:

Before giving amoxicillin, tell your veterinarian if your pet is being given another antibiotic (for the same or a different infection), allopurinol, or probenecid. You may not be able to give amoxicillin or you may need to have the dosage adjusted. Drugs other than those listed here may also interact with amoxicillin. Talk to your veterinarian or pharmacist before giving any prescription or over-the-counter medicines, including vitamins, minerals, and herbal products.

Where can I get more information:

Your pharmacist has additional information about amoxicillin written for health professionals that you may read.

Call your veterinarian for medical advice about any side effects to your pet. You may report side effects to the FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.

Rated 5 out of 5 by B. Jefferson from Amoxicillin Caleb contracted kennel cough from my son's puppy Neo. After staying in the shelter for provo Neo came home with a cough, but the vet didn't tell us to keep our other dogs away from him, so all of our other dogs caught kennel cough also. When I gave Caleb the Amoxicillin I could see a difference within three days. He is doing much better, but he still have a slight cough which we are now working on. Thank you from Caleb's mom, B. Jefferson

Rated 5 out of 5 by Toodles from My cat (over 12 years old) does extremely well with this. He is taking it due to the fact that he has a tremendous amount of mucus and it does help to clear it up - which means he does not sneeze mucus all over the place and more importantly, HE CAN BREATHE AND SMELL HIS FOOD. His appetite is great now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pam from I have been giving this to my Great Dane now for 4 days. He seems to be fine and getting better. His stool is loose but no blood or anything like that. Winston is very sensitive to most medications so I consider this a plus that he has taken this one and doing this well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Roberto's mom from Amoxicillin 100mg tabs I ordered these because it is easier to pill Roberto than to administer liquid meds. It didn't work out as hoped. After three or four days on the tabs, he regressed, with blood once again showing in his urine. I switched him back to liquid amoxicillin and he is once again on the upswing. I think he can't absorb the tablets as easily as the liquid.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tana from Note In response to Slovakian: Yes, pets can be allergic to certain medicines, too. Amoxicillin is a penicillin-based broad-spectrum antibiotic, so it is possible your pet was penicillin intolerant, just as some humans are. (This is the same medicine given to humans, btw.) This is generally an extremely safe antibiotic - unless one is allergic to the penicillin family of drugs Be sure and tell your vet about this reaction so they can flag your pets records as to this allergy.

De La Medecine Generale, Seulement De La Medecine Generale L Otipax Ne Doit Plus Etre Utilise, Otipa

Dans notre serie "Que fait la pharmacovigilance francaise ?" nous posons le probleme mineur de l'Otipax car il est bien evident qu'il est des chantiers plus urgents dans notre beau pays.

L'otipax est une aberration absolue.

Car non seulement l'Otipax ne sert a rien mais, plus encore, son rapport benefices / risques est dans les paquerettes.

La particularite de ce produit est non seulement de n'avoir aucun interet medical mais, plus encore, d'etre en vente libre.

Reprenons par le debut.

Prescrire des gouttes auriculaires ne se justifie plus que dans des cas tres particuliers. antibiotherapie locale probabiliste ou non.

Prescrire des gouttes auriculaires ne peut se faire qu'apres avoir vu l'etat du tympan.

Il vaut mieux, en general, s'abstenir de prescrire des gouttes auriculaires sauf dans le cas sus decrit.

Qui peut produire un seul argument pour prescrire de l'Otipax qui contient un anesthesique local (lidocaine) et un analgesique antipyretique (sic) la phenazone ?

Dernier point. l'Otipax est en vente libre. C'est a dire que tout pharmacien, au dessus de son comptoir, peut vendre de l'Otipax sans avoir vu le tympan ; c'est a dire que tout parent peut acheter de l'Otipax pour en mettre dans l'oreille de son enfant. Sans avoir regarde le tympan.

Cesser la commercialisation de l'Otipax me parait une mesure appropriee et j'engage les patients / malades a le refuser tant en pharmacie que chez le medecin.

22 commentaires:

Au risque de me faire conspuer, cher Confrere, je continuerai a prescrire OTIPAX qui rend bien service lorsqu'une OMA est diagnostiquee et que l'enfant a mal. C'est efficace contre la douleur, sans danger si on previent les parents que l'OTIPAX ne doit pas etre employe sans avoir prealablement vu le tympan ou s'il y a un ecoulement d'oreille (faisant suspecter une perforation tympanique spontanee, mais la l'enfant n'a plus mal). J'explique aux parents que l'OTIPAX n'a d'autre interet que de calmer la douleur, et a mon sens c'est moins dangereux que l'ibuprofene par voie generale. Je reste ouvert a vos arguments. Quelle est la nocivite de la lidocaine en local. Et de la phenazone (meme si elle ne sert pas a grand chose) ? A vous lire.

Ce n'est pas le lieu de faire des commentaires medicaux. Mais. Le traitement de l'OMA a tympan ferme ne necessite pas l'utilisation de topiques. L'ibuprofene n'est pas le traitement de premiere ligne. Je prefere paracetamol / codeine. La nocivite de la lidocaine en local. reactions allergiques mais, surtout, passage en arriere de la membrane tympanique (gravissime). Pas d'otipax. C'est mon point de vue. Confraternite.

Je suis assez d'accord avec Tournepierre car ca soulage bien la douleur et ca peut aider a eviter la prescription d'antibiotiques

mais effectivement contre la vente libre

CR d'un essai etasunien

Bonjour! Mon medecin me l'a prescrit car suite a une grippe que j'ai laisse trainer deux bonnes semaines j'ai commence a avoir un grincement tres fort dans l'oreille. Mon medecin ne pas explique a quoi ete d'eu ce grincement mais une chose est sur j'ai eu besoin d'utiliser Otipax que trois fois pour que le bruit s'arrete. A present a chaque petit rhum je sens une gene dans l'oreille. Es-ce parce que j'ai mal soigne mon oreille la premiere fois en prenant Otipax ou seulement que cette fois la a fragilise mon tympans?

@ Jersey Davidson (beau pseudo). pas de reponses medicales ici. Il faut remontrer votre tympan a votre medecin traitant le jour ou vous ressentez ce que vous decrivez. Bonne soiree.

J'ai deux enfants et l'OTIPAX m'a ete d'un grand secours lors des otites, que comme chacun sait surviennent souvent au moment du couche du soir, lorsqu'il n'y a plus de medecin sous la main. Il a permit d'eviter des nuits d'insomnie (a eux et a moi). En plus mon deuxieme souffre enormement en phase d'atterrissage (plus longue) et de decollage, alors que les medecins disent qu'il n'y a aucune pathologie. Cela fait des annees que ca dure alors je pense que la prochaine fois j'y aurai recours.

Je ne suis pas medecin, mais je souffre BEAUCOUP. J'ai un peu "la flemme" d'aller au medecin (vue que j'ai mal)

J'ai une otite :

Mal a l'oreille, mal un peu au toucher (surtout si je touche l'interieur de l'oreille comme pour y mettre un coton etc). j'ai un peu mal en bas de la machoire, du mal a mastiquer (manger hin, pas de blague)

ET j'ai dit a ma mere d'aller vite me chercher un truc car j'ai vraiment MAL

Le pharmacien A DONNER de l'otipax a ma mere et lui a dit "ATTENTION si le tympan est ouvert ne lui donner pas ca. car il peu risquer d'autre infection blabla" DONC il a BIEN prevenu.

Donc faut arretez de croire que les pharmaciens pensent qu'a se faire de l'argent d’ailleurs ma mere a du insister car il voulais pas le donner si j'avais pas pris RDV chez un medecin.

Mais vue que mon oreille ne coule pas j'ai donc pas le tympan perce.

Bref, j'en met 3 gouttes et je vais beaucoup mieux dans les minutes suivante pendant 4h voir +.

Donc il est pas inutile. il soulage enormement et les pharmaciens previennent. (en tout cas le miens a prevenu).

Je suis d'accord que certains dentiste/medecin etc sont un peu des "je pense qu'au fric je m'en fout de ta sante" mais c'est pas TOUS le cas.

Voila, donc maintenant je me soigne avec mes gougouttes et mes cachets !

Je suis pharmacien et tres perplexe quant a l'otipax. Seul produit disponible en vente libre pour les oreilles je ne le conseille jamais car je ne regarde pas dans les oreilles. ce qui me parait logique. De plus mettre un ains (phenazone) sans couverture antibiotique sur une otite (donc une infection) me parait illogique et dangereux.

Ovofar 100 Mg Tablet Reviews Unconfirmed Female Fertility Drug, Ovofar

Ovofar 100 mg Tablet Reviews: Unconfirmed Female Fertility Drug

Country of Origin: India

Note: Image relates to the active ingredient Clomiphene. Ovofar isn’t a highly establish drug online and it is not possible to source images using the online drugstores or manufacturer’s site.

Ovofar 50mg with the active ingredient Clomiphene is used for treating infertility in women. This medication is manufactured by Infar (India) Ltd and is a type of ovulatory stimulant. The basic function of Ovofar is to help in the process of producing a higher volume of hormones that are needed to support the development and release of the eggs.

The use of Ovofar isn’t practical for women with ovarian failure or primary pituitary, which relates to an inability to make the eggs. The active ingredient of Clomiphene isn’t intended for long-term use and is only a practical option for 3 treatment cycles. If pregnancy hasn’t been confirmed after this time, it will be necessary to look at alternative treatment plans.

Ovofar can also be prescribed for the treatment of male infertility and helps those with low sperm. A smaller dosage is required for male infertility, and usually limited to 25 mg.

Certain medicines may interact when using Ovofar, so it is necessary to let the doctor know when using dietary supplements, herbal preparations, non-prescription, or prescription medicine. Store Ovofar out-of-reach of children and away from light, moisture, and heat. A preferred storage temperature is between 15-30° C. Avoid storing in the bathroom. A further version of the Ovofar medication with the active ingredient of Clomiphene is available from Organon (India) Ltd.

Ovofar Reviews

When in the process of compiling the research material for Ovofar, we were not able to find any reliable customer reviews or comments published online. For this reason, it may be more practical to look at a more trusted brand that still contains the active ingredient of Clomiphene. While it is possible to determine that the main ingredient is Clomiphene there is nothing to say that the other components included are safe and acceptable to use. All-in-all, while Clomiphene is great for helping to treat infertility issues, it isn’t possible to confirm the effectiveness of the specific Ovofar medication that is manufactured by Infar (India) Ltd. Only use this medication if prescribed by your doctor. When it comes to identifying a satisfactory drug for future use, make sure to carefully research the actual drug and manufacturer before buying.

Pricing and Dosages

A typical dosage for Ovofar is one 50 mg tablet per day over the course of a five day treatment cycle. Start taking the medication on the fifth day of the menstrual cycle. A higher dosage may be prescribed for the 2nd or 3rd treatment session. The pricing for Ovofar is in the region of $43.50 for 100mg x 30 tablets, $36.50 for 50mg x 30 tablets, or $36.50 for 25mg x 60 tablets.

How to Buy Ovofar Online

Ovofar is easily sourced online at a variety of online drugstores that offer competitive rates, free shipping, and special deals.

How to Use Ovofar

Take Ovofar orally with a glass of water. This medication can be taken with or without food. Ovulation is likely to happen within 10 days of taking the tablets. Swallow the tablets whole.

Ovofar Side Effects

Ovofar is usually well-tolerated, but certain side effect may be noticed including: vomiting, mood change, lightheadedness; headache, enlargement of the ovaries, enlarged breasts, dizziness, vision problems, hot flashes, or stomach pain. Contact the doctor right away for the more serious or persistent side effects.

Conclusion

Ovofar with the active ingredient Clomiphene could well be a reliable performer for treating the fertility related problems. Any patient with issues related to adrenal gland problems, uncontrolled thyroid, blood clots, ovarian cysts, or abnormal vaginal bleeding should take more care when using this type of medication. Overall, it could be very easy to say this drug is a practical option for fertility treatment if it was possible to source the real person reviews online. But, without this information we are only able to give a low nominal score of 1 out of 5 (5 is highest).

RxStars Review - 1 out of 5 stars by Sam W. Johnson

Antalisin, Antalisin

Arthritis - Antalisin (Brand name: motrin)

Motrin is used for treating rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, menstrual cramps, or mild to moderate pain. Motrin is an NSAID. NSAIDs treat the symptoms of pain and inflammation. They do not treat the disease that causes those symptoms.

Use Motrin as directed by your doctor.

Take Motrin by mouth with or without food. It may be taken with food if it upsets your stomach. Taking it with food may not lower the risk of stomach or bowel problems (eg, bleeding, ulcers). Talk with your doctor or pharmacist if you have persistent stomach upset.

Take Motrin with a full glass of water (8 oz/240 mL) as directed by your doctor.

If you miss a dose of Motrin and you are taking it regularly, take it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose. Go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at once.

Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about the proper use of Motrin .

Store Motrin at room temperature, between 68 and 77 degrees F (20 and 25 degrees C). Store away from heat, moisture, and light. Do not store in the bathroom. Keep Motrin out of the reach of children and away from pets.

Active Ingredient: Ibuprofen.

Do NOT use Motrin if:

you are allergic to any ingredient in Motrin

you have had a severe allergic reaction (eg, severe rash, hives, trouble breathing, growths in the nose, dizziness) to aspirin or an NSAID (eg, ibuprofen, celecoxib)

you have recently had or will be having bypass heart surgery

you are in the last 3 months of pregnancy.

Contact your doctor or health care provider right away if any of these apply to you.

Some medical conditions may interact with Motrin. Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have any medical conditions, especially if any of the following apply to you:

if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding

if you are taking any prescription or nonprescription medicine, herbal product, or dietary supplement

if you have allergies to medicines, foods, or other substances

if you have a history of kidney or liver disease, diabetes, or stomach or bowel problems (eg, bleeding, perforation, ulcers)

if you have a history of swelling or fluid buildup, lupus, asthma, or growths in the nose (nasal polyps), or mouth inflammation

if you have high blood pressure, blood disorders, bleeding or clotting problems, heart problems (eg, heart failure), or blood vessel disease, or if you are at risk for any of these diseases

if you have poor health, dehydration or low fluid volume, or low blood sodium levels, you drink alcohol, or you have a history of alcohol abuse.

Some medicines may interact with Motrin. Tell your health care provider if you are taking any other medicines, especially any of the following:

Anticoagulants (eg, warfarin), aspirin, corticosteroids (eg, prednisone), heparin, or selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) (eg, fluoxetine) because the risk of stomach bleeding may be increased

Probenecid because it may increase the risk of Motrin 's side effects

Cyclosporine, lithium, methotrexate, or quinolones (eg, ciprofloxacin) because the risk of their side effects may be increased by Motrin

Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors (eg, enalapril) or diuretics (eg, furosemide, hydrochlorothiazide) because their effectiveness may be decreased by Motrin.

This may not be a complete list of all interactions that may occur. Ask your health care provider if Motrin may interact with other medicines that you take. Check with your health care provider before you start, stop, or change the dose of any medicine.

Important safety information:

Motrin may cause dizziness or drowsiness. These effects may be worse if you take it with alcohol or certain medicines. Use Motrin with caution. Do not drive or perform other possible unsafe tasks until you know how you react to it.

Serious stomach ulcers or bleeding can occur with the use of Motrin. Taking it in high doses or for a long time, smoking, or drinking alcohol increases the risk of these side effects. Taking Motrin with food will NOT reduce the risk of these effects. Contact your doctor or emergency room at once if you develop severe stomach or back pain; black, tarry stools; vomit that looks like blood or coffee grounds; or unusual weight gain or swelling.

Do not take more than the recommended dose or use for longer than prescribed without checking with your doctor.

Motrin has ibuprofen in it. Before you start any new medicine, check the label to see if it has ibuprofen in it too. If it does or if you are not sure, check with your doctor or pharmacist.

Do not take aspirin while you are using Motrin unless your doctor tells you to.

Lab tests, including kidney function, complete blood cell counts, and blood pressure, may be done to monitor your progress or to check for side effects. Be sure to keep all doctor and lab appointments.

Use Motrin with caution in the elderly; they may be more sensitive to its effects, including stomach bleeding and kidney problems.

Motrin should be used with extreme caution in children; safety and effectiveness in children have not been confirmed.

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Motrin may cause harm to the fetus. Do not take it during the last 3 months of pregnancy. If you think you may be pregnant, contact your doctor.

Refusal - Definition Of Refusal By The Free Dictionary, Refusal

refusal

Refusal

no dice No, no way, nothing doing, absolutely not; a negative response or result. Although many tales surround the derivation of this expression, it is likely that since dice often implies luck, no dice simply implies no luck.

I was around at her bank this morning trying to find out what her balance was, but no dice. Fanny won’t part. (P. G. Wodehouse, Barmy in Wonderland . 1952)

no soap No; usually said in refusal or rejection. The origin of this expression is unknown, but it may have been originally used to refuse a bribe, since a slang meaning of soap is ‘bribe money.’

If you don’t know, just say, “No soap.” (Marks, Plastic Age . 1924)

thumbs down Disapproval, disapprobation, rejection. This expression refers to making a fist and extending the thumb downward, a gesture which, in the days of gladiatorial combats in ancient Rome, indicated that the spectators thought a defeated gladiator had fought poorly and, as a result, should be slain by the victor. The expression is commonly used figuratively as evidenced in a quote from bacteriologist Paul de Kruif (1890–1971), cited in Webster’s Third:

The government thumbs-down on penicillin for [treating] endocarditis was published.

Director S Log, Dasav

Because this is a collaborative project, I was looking for performers who not only had a certain look and could read lines with expression. I also wanted actors who could work with others and who demonstrated an ability to create a dramatic image on stage. Therefore, instead of traditional readings from the script or monologues, I came up with a series of assignments for my auditionees. I asked them first to divide in groups of three and gave them a short cutting from the novel. Their task was to come up with a way to present the cutting that would have all three performers actively involved in creating the scene the entire time. They could assign lines any way they chose. Next I split them up into groups of four and had them go back and look at the first cutting again. This time they were free to cut lines and add repetition. For the final run-through, I gave them a new cutting that was very action-based. This time the groups were to incorporate all the previous instructions and add a soundscape to the scene generated by the performers.

2/16/08 BLOCKING REHEARSAL

First rehearsal! Hooray! In advance of this first meeting, I sent all the cast members a copy of the entire novel. Our first task was to divide it into scenes to create a "rough cut" version. We'll do further cutting as we stage. I'm worried about getting this novella down to the one hour running time we need to fit our slot at the festival and convention where we'll be performing. The cast's response to this exercise was a little sluggish. I wasn't surprised. Cutting a novel isn't a good ensemble-building exercise for most performers, but I felt we needed to get this done first.

After getting the "rough cut," we started work on the first scene. Since it's a relatively short scene and incorporates materials that the cast was already familiar with from auditions, I thought this would go pretty rapidly. However, several of these performers have never worked together before. Therefore there was a certain amount of adjusting to each other's way of working. I was pleased with what we came up with, though. I feel I've chosen performers who are not going to be intimidated by the freedom of working collaboratively with a director who suggests and edits rather than dictates.

2/21/08 BLOCKING REHEARSAL

This rehearsal got off to a slow start. Andrea is on a trip to Chicago and wasn't at rehearsal. I knew about this in advance and had planned to split the cast into two groups (with my assistant director Kris taking charge of one and I the other) to pitch ideas before we started staging. I was hoping this would help the guys get a better feel for the way each worked and would encourage everyone to speak up. However, Jay had a last minute conflict with work and couldn't come. Groups of two were workable for my idea. Group of two and group of one was just not going to work, so we all worked together on scene one.

In the first part of the scene, Nellie is walking through her neighborhood and makes her usual stop at her favorite vendor's kiosks. The guys tried a couple ways of representing the various areas of the city she describes in her narrative, but I thought what they came up with was too abstract and suggested we just represent a selection of people in and around the kiosks. We're not 100% thrilled with what we came up with. yet, but it will do for now.

The guys started to have more fun once we got into Nellie's encounter with the first "boss" who tries to send her on a mission, Mr. James. Once we got into the death scenes, ideas started to flow more easily and the staging began to develop in a more organic sort of way.

I was more "hands on" in this rehearsal than I'd really like to be, giving out blocking without always waiting to hear all suggestions first. I think this was just a function of my being nervous about the cast not having the creative energy we do when all the performers are there. Have to watch that in future..

Our second -- and hopefully final -- Andrea-less rehearsal. I've directed Andrea in productions twice before. She's sort of my "security blanket" on this project. It's probably good for me to get used to working with the guys without her being there, but I miss her!

Jay was back, but this time Andy was gone. Once again, I couldn't use my "divide and conquer". uhm, guess that should be "divide and collaborate" idea. Directors reading this, the lesson is "always have a backup plan". I had sent the cast (as I did last time, but forgot to record) the rough cut of this scene in advance.

Chandler and Adam both already seem more confident about what we're doing and how we're going to be working. Adam initiated a conversation at the beginning of the rehearsal about the way Mayerson incorporates extreme, self-aware, and sometimes self-parodying violence in this script. I like that the guys are already starting to think about the piece conceptually and not just in terms of who's going to stand where when. I like very much that this conversation seems to be coming out of the work instead of being something that I have to find ways to incorporate.

Kris, my AD, is doing a great job of juggling the tasks of standing in for Andrea, keeping a running "things to do/get" list of production notes from me, and being "script monkey" in charge of recording our edits and line assignments. Our tech director graciously stood in for Andy -- since we have no tech to direct yet.

We tentatively placed Andrea as Nellie in the foreground narrating for most of this scene and worked on the kiosk vendors who will serve as background for her descriptions and comments. This was the first time we'd worked with our "blood" props (red handkerchiefs). Having a prop to deal with seem to spark a good deal of creativity as well as getting everyone thinking even more about the hyper-violence of the script. I started thinking about how cannibalism -- organisms and organizations dysfunctionally consuming themselves -- appears over and over again in the script. It was hard not to think about that sort of thing while I watched the guys come up with new and more outrageous ways for the Limo Brothers to prepare and deliver their "manwiches." I'm going to try to have a bigger variety of shapes and sizes of "blood" for the guys to play with at our next rehearsal.

Note to prospective collaborative directors, I think for a lot of performers, this is an element that invites collaboration and eases the transition from being just an actor to being a director/actor -- finding something that makes you feel free to play.

2/28/08 BLOCKING REHEARSAL

We finally had everyone here, but this was just a goofy rehearsal for some reason. These Thursday rehearsals are proving to be a little tough on me. Even though my asthma isnпїЅt that bad right now, after teaching all day, IпїЅm low on energy and mental acuity. Chandler and Adam were in a goofy mood today пїЅ which was fine since we are working on the manic, comic book, Bruce Willis movie quality of some of these scenes пїЅ but the rest of us werenпїЅt in a particularly goofy mood and the contrast made the rehearsal seem somehow lopsided and off balance.

The scenes we worked on today were really just variations on a lot of what weпїЅve already done. I like the repetition in this text. ItпїЅs one of the things that convinced me this would be a good text to adapt. On stage, the repetitive confrontations with yet another boss, yet another question about genocide, and yet another example of cultural self-mutilation take on a ritualistic quality. The violence naturalizes and become inevitable and cyclic. We constantly have performers playing someone who dies then rises again to kill someone else or be killed again пїЅ like itпїЅs all in a dayпїЅs work. And today it was also all goofy funпїЅ

3/01/08 BLOCKING REHEARSAL

To be honest, we had a kind of aпїЅ well, less than optimally productive though not entirely crappy rehearsal and I think a lot of it was because of me. I finally got a chance to try a couple things IпїЅve been wanting to do since moment one. Before we started blocking, I took time out to talk concept with them. I rolled the blackboard out and got them to help me list some of the themes that I/they saw emerging in the work. We came up with things like: repetition, blood, genocide, cannibalism, zombies. Last year, IпїЅm sure my cast would have killed to get me to spend a little time teasing out ideas and talking about them. They always seemed to be reassured when I did teacher-y things like that that offered a little meta-commentary and offered a roadmap of where we were going with the show. IпїЅm sorry I didnпїЅt think of starting a rehearsal out this way until long after the production was over.

Current cast participated but seemed impatient to get on with blocking. Talking about themes primarily seem to make them think about music we can use for the show пїЅ which IпїЅm sure will be valuable later. I donпїЅt feel it was wasted time, but it didnпїЅt seem to reassure themпїЅ and they are starting to get anxious. No matter how many rehearsals I schedule, it never seems to be enough at this point in the process to prevent us all from panicking a littleпїЅ or a lot. IпїЅm not panicking. I have a date in March penciled in for doing thatпїЅ

Next idea that didnпїЅt quite work пїЅ I split the cast to pitch ideas for the пїЅLincoln HeightsпїЅ descriptive paragraphs. I took Andy and Chandler and sent Kris to the Grad office with Andrea, Jay, and Adam. KB went back and forth taking picturesпїЅ and spying a little at our request. Even though I knew this was not the most efficient way to generate blocking, I wanted to do so for a number of reasons. First, my AD, Kris, is a very talented actor/director. I wanted to make sure he got a chance to work directly with our actors. Second, Chandler and Andy have excellent ideas but tend to defer to Jay, Adam, and Andrea who are all more aggressive about pitching blocking concepts. Third, Jay and Adam both have wonderful ideas, but thereпїЅs an undertone of friction between them. Their ideas often contrast instead of immediately meshing. They donпїЅt know each other at all outside of this production and are still getting used to just being in the same room together let alone collaborating.

I think you can see how I was hoping this was going to work out. I hope Kris had a good time working with his group. He didnпїЅt say. Otherwise, I struck out completely. Instead of deferring to Jay, Adam, and Andrea, Andy and Chandler came up with several great ideas, but tended to defer to me. Instead of patiently facilitating, I found myself pitching ideas aggressively to try to keep the momentum going. (We did have a really good conversation about health care in the middle of all this.) When the other group came back and we tried to put the two blocking ideas together, we ended up using just as little of their input as usual. Jay and Andrea were in a good mood, but Adam seemed like heпїЅd just decided to go with whatever the two of them had suggested пїЅ despite his better judgment.

What we came up with was pretty cool and the rest of the rehearsal went okay пїЅ except we ran out of time and will have to do the second пїЅCounty HospitalпїЅ scene next timeпїЅ Which isnпїЅt making those who are becoming anxious any more confidentпїЅ Big sighпїЅ

Well, sports fans, thatпїЅs how the collaborative directing game runs. Sometimes youпїЅre the genius who takes chaos and makes it into art and sometimes youпїЅre the idiot who makes everyone miss the latest episode of пїЅLostпїЅ for no apparent reasonпїЅ

3/09/08 BLOCKING REHEARSAL

We were snowed out on Thursday пїЅ which never happens in Texas, let me note (7 flipping inches in 7 hours!) and most of the cast already had plans for Friday and Sunday, so we ended up doing a six hour mega-rehearsal on Saturday. We started out cutting the script, worked on an idea for what weпїЅre calling пїЅthe Genocide sequenceпїЅ in Scene VI, then went back and blocked the пїЅMario Brothers Haunted HouseпїЅ sequence from Scene V, and then broke for lunch. After lunch we blocked Scene VI and weпїЅre done with blocking! Hooray! I know the cast is relieved пїЅ well, they told me they were, so, yeah, thereпїЅs that пїЅ but working in this collaborative style, IпїЅve found that the blocking segment of the rehearsal is much harder work for the cast. Normally in rehearsal, blocking is a little boring for the actors. You spend most of your time standing around waiting for someone to tell you where to stand, then stand there and wait for them to tell you to stand somewhere else. Because in this style (and in this show where everyone is on stage every minute) they have to help come up with the blocking they get to share in the pleasure of coming up with good ideas but also with the frustration of being stuck for ideas or having an idea that seems good but wonпїЅt work. Also, it canпїЅt help but feel to them that thereпїЅs no plan, that this could all go horribly wrong and that we would have a show that looks terrible and is embarrassing to all of us пїЅ so, essentially when you share the directorпїЅs responsibilities, you also get to share пїЅDirector Angst. пїЅ Poor darlingsпїЅ

We started out cutting the пїЅrough cutпїЅ version down to our working script. IпїЅve not found a way to get the whole cast excited about this process. The guys participate, but donпїЅt have the kind of enthusiasm that Andrea and I do. For example, when we got to the part where Nellie talks about genocide, Andrea said, пїЅI think I have a little crush on these paragraphs. WeпїЅve sent each other notes and facebooked a few times alreadyпїЅ to indicate how much she wanted to keep that part in the script. The guys also have favorite lines and sequences, but donпїЅt seem to like to sit and talk through what weпїЅre going to keep. Adam likes to cut while weпїЅre on our feet. And I must admit we do a pretty good job of that. I think I probably could have given them пїЅrough cutsпїЅ that are much closer to the final cutsпїЅ but then again, thereпїЅs some blocks of narration that I might have cut that turned out to be someone elseпїЅs favorite lines.

The thing that really strikes me about the whole experience thus far is the difference that gender makes in small group dynamics. Even though I have taught Gender, IпїЅve always taken the пїЅrulesпїЅ of gender specific communicative behavior outlined by Julia Woods et. al. with a big grain of salt because itпїЅs perfectly clear to me that these пїЅrulesпїЅ are at most rules of thumb пїЅ learned behavior that is very culture and context specific -- and that it is entirely possible and even usual for individuals to engage in code-switching and even be comfortable and happy using the пїЅrulesпїЅ for interaction that Woods delineates as more typical for the opposite sex. However, the guys (I habitually think of my cast now as пїЅme, Andrea, and the guysпїЅ) do seem to have a marked preference, as Woods predicts, for solution-oriented discussions (which they like to take place as we work through blocking problems) and an atmosphere that is openly competitive пїЅ including lots of teasing and trash talking.

To make a remarkably oversimplified and relatively sexist metaphor, comparing last yearпїЅs working mode to this yearпїЅs is like comparing basket weaving to basketball. Last year, my cast seemed most comfortable when I played the role of teacher/mediator. It was important that I made sure everyone got their chance to speak and had their idea heard respectfully. I was in charge of making sure everything blended together seamlessly and everyone felt appreciated and supported.

I am from North Carolina, so it could just be the March Madness talking, but this year, I feel like IпїЅm the coach. IпїЅm in charge of calling the plays, motivating the players, running the drills, and making sure everyone is giving 110%. As you see from other posts, I felt bad that I was falling into the habit of just dictating my ideas. However, today after I had just delivered one of the пїЅJay, you stand here and Chandler, you do thisпїЅ commands that I have been cringing over as being woefully non-collaborative, Adam immediately came behind me and said something like, пїЅI have a better idea пїЅ Andy, you do this and Chandler stand there. пїЅ Without my noticing it, weпїЅve reached the point where they no longer feel obligated to defer to my ideas. They know their ideas are just as good if not better and that when we combine everyoneпїЅs ideas, we get the best ideas possible. ItпїЅs gone from being my show to being our show. Bingo. Collaboration.

So the moral of the story, kids, is that collaboration comes in many shapes and sizes. I came into this show feeling very confident that after directing four collaborative shows, I knew what I was doing. But as always, collaboration teaches me that thereпїЅs so much more to learn about the creative process. A director following a Stanislavskian or Brechtian style has a playbook (damn, another sports metaphor. I have got the Madness) that gives you a goal and techniques for achieving that goal. If nothing else, this show has taught me that collaborative directing is not just about having an arsenal of collaborative techniques to impose on a cast, but rather about approaching rehearsal with an open mind and a willingness to adapt to the approach that best releases your castпїЅs creativity.

3/13/08 FIRST RUN-THROUGH

For me, this will forever be the пїЅBig GunпїЅ rehearsal. We brought in a variety of nerf guns and water pistols to пїЅauditionпїЅ tonight. And let me tell you, a fine time was had by allпїЅ

Acting and all other sorts of performance are really just refinements on the impulse common to most mammals to rehearse combat and defense пїЅ to play, in other words. Having interesting objects to manipulate seems to cut through the societal inhibitions that discourage creativity and playfulness in even the shyest and most reticent casts. Advice to other directors collaborative and otherwise пїЅ get props into the hands of your actors ASAP.

I was happy to see that the energy level of the rehearsal no longer seems to be tied to me at all. I was very tired and had trouble concentrating. Had a small asthma attack two hours earlier. But the guys didnпїЅt seem to even notice. They were playing and problem solving to beat the band.

This is an incredibly high-energy cast. Let me backtrack and explain what I mean by пїЅenergyпїЅ. Directors too often use this as a blanket term without being specific about what they mean. This leads to the annoying situation of a director sitting in the back row clapping their hands and demanding, пїЅEnergy, people, en-er-gy! пїЅ As a former actor, I can attest that this request usually about as helpful as having a significant other clap their hands in the midst of an act of passion and say, пїЅOrgasm, honey, I want to see an or-ga-smпїЅ Some time this week, okay? пїЅ

So in interest of clarity, when I say пїЅenergyпїЅ IпїЅm talking about perceivable levels of emotional involvement in the performance. Big, fearless gestures that involve the full body, bold choices with vocal and facial expression, investing words with meaning, and creative problem-solving are all signs of energetic engagement in the creative process.

As difficult as it is to define, energy is also difficult to inspire in a cast. For my part, clapping your hands and demanding it rarely achieves the goal. Distributing double barrel nerf shotguns, however, seems to work like gangbustersпїЅ

3/15/08 SECOND RUNTHOUGH WHICH ACTUALLY WAS A BLOCKING REHEARSAL

IпїЅm going to spend a lot of time in this particular entry talking about a decision that we made in the last few minutes of the rehearsal. If my cast reads this, theyпїЅll probably be surprised since we spent nearly and hour and a half re-blocking Scene IV and a grand total of maybe five minutes talking about this decision which in the end, I made for everyone.

We cut Fyodor Chandler.

Well, not completely. We still mention him several times and I put a line in at the end that reveals that heпїЅs NellieпїЅs brother. But the scene between Nellie and Fyodor got cut for once and for all at this rehearsal. We are a week and half from opening this puppy, so the desire not to add any more lines or block any more scenes is significantly high. However, it wasnпїЅt simple expediency that led us to make this cut.

When we do talk about the production concept (and generally we donпїЅt) the cast talks about it in terms of movies like пїЅEscape from New YorkпїЅ and the пїЅDie HardпїЅ movies. In my production concept statement that IпїЅve just written and posted, I talk about the production as if it were a futuristic version of пїЅThe Big Sleep. пїЅ This disparity is fine by me. пїЅEscape from New YorkпїЅ is essentially a futuristic version of пїЅThe Big Sleep. пїЅ (And if my cast wonders why I never just told them that I think weпїЅre doing пїЅThe Big SleepпїЅ itпїЅs because that if I did, you (and I) may have never been motivated to think about the many ways itпїЅs like пїЅEscape from New YorkпїЅ and the пїЅDie HardпїЅ because traditionally the director dictates the interpretation of the script to the cast. And we might never have thought up that cool motorcycle battle at the end.) However, these differing genre models may go far to explain why the cast didnпїЅt really care if we cut Fyodor Chandler or not and I wake up thinking about it at 4 am.

The scene with Fyodor Chandler provides a moment where Nellie at least momentarily finds her moral compass. It makes what she does afterwards make more sense. In the modern action-adventure film, actions donпїЅt necessarily have to have moral motivationпїЅ or even make sense, for that matter.

I still worry that IпїЅve just become the studio hack who cut the scene from пїЅThe Big SleepпїЅ that explained who committed the murder Phillip Marlowe was supposed to be investigating. I think my cast knows everyone will be too busy listening to Bogart and looking at Bacall to care.

We had a several run-though rehearsals over Spring Break. IпїЅve decided to lump them all together and write about them all in one entry пїЅ primarily since we do our first performance at the Petit Jean festival this Friday. Preparation for that is taking up most of my time right now. In the midst of being a little panicked because we didnпїЅt have the lines down well enough to bring in a preview audience, I have to say that I was really impressed by this castпїЅs commitment to this project. We had several long rehearsals during this week. I had only asked for a few days. However with no grumbling (well, with very very little grumbling) the guys came in, worked hard, and stayed as long we needed to each day.

We added lights early in the week. That made a big difference. Chandler Thompson gets a lot of credit for our lighting design. I had just asked him for a general wash to light the stage. He played with gels and focus until heпїЅd come up with design that had the center stage (where most of the пїЅbossпїЅ scenes are) in red and the two sides (where most of the пїЅoutsideпїЅ scenes are) in blue. This gives the whole production an appropriately surreal look and clarifies the scene changes. Well done, sir! Well done!

We also finally finalized what weпїЅre going to do with music and transitions. Our пїЅtechnicalпїЅ director, Kevin Badger was originally going to be in charge of music. However, we ended up using KrisпїЅ ipod as our sound system. It made sense to have Kris in charge of sound. WeпїЅd talked about doing something to пїЅkeep scoreпїЅ of the kill total for the play. During these rehearsals, we finalized what KB would be doing and how that would help create a transition from scene to scene. The пїЅRing boyпїЅ idea was a good example of the way we tended to work as a cast. The bit started out as a rather vague idea of something that we thought would be cool and funny. We initially came up with several rather complex ideas on how to achieve it (sports scoreboard, flipchart, writing numbers on a big pad of paper). What we ended up with was something so simple пїЅ the пїЅRing BoyпїЅ walks past the audience at the end of each scene holding up a board with the kill count (and a clever saying, thanks to the irrepressible ingenuity of our пїЅtechnical directorпїЅ). At the end, Nellie kills him. In retrospect, it seems obvious that this is the way it should be done (and reinforced some other Brechtian staging choices we had made in a very effective way, in my opinion). In practice, though, it was long process of gradually stripping the idea down to what was important and what would work.

To someone unfamiliar with collaborative work, it may seem that it would be more usual to start with simple ideas and build them up into dramatic choices that are rich and complex. This is true some of the time. However, a good deal of the work is accomplished by starting out with a big, vague, multifaceted idea that everyone in the cast can buy into and then whittling it down via group critique to a simple gesture that gets the message across.

During this final week of rehearsals, I became less and less collaborative in my approach. As showtime approaches, I feel the director must start to vigorously serve as the пїЅoutside eye. пїЅ IпїЅm not suggesting that you suddenly switch from being a supportive teammate to a demanding dictator, but during the last phase of the production, I think it is useful for even the most committed collaborative director to shift gears. You are less needed as a facilitator as your are as an editor for your cast. During this time, I started asking questions like, пїЅAre we committed to this particular gesture/choice or is this something we can/should drop? пїЅ пїЅWhy are you making this gesture/performative choice? пїЅ One thing in this production we really concentrated on in the last week of rehearsals was making each of the пїЅbossesпїЅ and each set of пїЅgoonsпїЅ distinct from the rest. To work on this, IпїЅd stop the scene and state the challenge as I saw it. For example пїЅMr. James must be different than KevinпїЅ or пїЅThe DSL must be distinct from the Ulluminati. пїЅ (Since all these characters were played by the same actors, being able to clearly separate the bosses/goons was particularly important). Next I would illicit the castпїЅs input пїЅ пїЅHow can we make more of a clear difference? пїЅ I would usually also offer a suggestion пїЅ пїЅLetпїЅs try making the UlluminatiпїЅs gestures more military. пїЅ Then after the rehearsal I would offer critique like a conventional director (while always trying to be as specific as possible) пїЅ пїЅThe UlluminatiпїЅs salute was sloppy that time. It needs to be in unison to contrast with the more free-style, In-Sync movement of the DSL goons. пїЅ

By this point in the rehearsals, your cast should feel enough ownership in the decisions that they have made (and will continue to make in response to audience feedback) to not be overpowered by critical input from you. Like I said before, I think that in order to have a clean, aesthetically pleasing final product, the director needs to move from being a co-author to being an editor in the last few rehearsals. Your cast should be confident enough in their choices and interpretation of the material to be receptive to critique and able to make adjustments to their physicality without feeling artistically inhibited by your input.

I think this cast made this transition very successfully. TheyпїЅve always seems to appreciate my being direct and unambiguous with them. If anything, they were bolder than ever in offering suggestions, coming up with new ideas, and refining their characterizations with increasing confidenceпїЅ At least I chose to interpret it that wayпїЅ IпїЅve never before been shot from three directions at once with nerf guns while I was giving notesпїЅ.

PETIT JEAN, AR - Performance for the Petit Jean Festival, March 27, 2008

I was and was not worried about this performance. [First up, I was co-hosting the Petit Jean Festival пїЅ which was plagued with a continuous series of near disasters this year пїЅ so I was worried about EVERYTHING. That was my job] The two big things that had me jittery were that we had not rehearsed in front of an audience and it looked like we werenпїЅt going to be able to rehearse in the space where we would perform. If youпїЅre reading this and you never ever ever plan to do a collaborative project, still listen to me on this one пїЅ ALWAYS have at least one rehearsal with a пїЅtestпїЅ audience and ALWAYS insist on having a run though in the space where you will be performing. Performers need time to adjust to the physical context of the performance in terms of acoustics, proximity to the audience, amount of traction provided by the flooring, and a hundred other little details that can all potentially cause major problems. Running though in the space where you will perform makes your cast feel more calm and centered going into the performance.

Performing for an audience пїЅ even a tiny audience -- is also very important. In comedy, it gives them clues as to where theyпїЅre going to have to hold for laughter. Beyond that, the presence of an audience gives the performer an adrenaline rush that will push his/her brain into overdrive. Good performers who love performing will always get new ideas, have new insights, and will speak and move with greater emotional intensity in front of an audience. This is a good thing. It is this spontaneous, sometimes unpredictable, sometimes unrepeatable interaction between performer and audience that makes theatre emotionally and mentally stimulating. This interaction is the real пїЅmagicпїЅ of performance.

Some conventional directors are threatened by the loss of control they feel as they watch their пїЅbrainchildпїЅ continue to evolve in front of an audience in directions they may not have anticipated. For the collaborative director, such growth should be the payoff of your efforts. The production now is a unique, ephemeral creative moment that belongs to you, your cast, and your audience. This doesnпїЅt have to mean that you just stand back and say, пїЅwell, whatever happens, happensпїЅ though. If youпїЅve done a good job of establishing yourself as the editor, as the extra set of eyes in the audience, youпїЅre still an important part of the creative process. You can still come back and say пїЅThat moment worked well to show the paranoia of the DSLпїЅ or пїЅWe still need to make a cleaner transition hereпїЅ or ask (as I did my cast) пїЅWhat the hell is up with that line about cabbage? пїЅ

To get back to Thursday night in Arkansas, though, I was jittery. We hadnпїЅt done the show for an audience, the cast was still unsteady with the lines in a few spots, and it didnпїЅt look like we could get the rehearsal hall. I had faith that what we had was going to be goodпїЅ but I was jittery. We ended up rehearsing in one of the cabins we were staying in. That was a big blessing in disguise. In the very small, shallow space, the amount of blood onstage was just overwhelming. The guys started to play in the blood during some of the пїЅzombieпїЅ scenes. I loved this (I think we all did). Literally taking bloodbaths was a beautiful metaphor for the willful self-destructiveness of our society that is being highlighted by the scriptпїЅ Plus, it was really funny.

The best, unintentionally and unknowingly brilliant moment of directing I may have done in the whole production came in this rehearsal. Glen (ably played by our Adam) shoots Mr. S. Crowe (played by our Not-Andy with equal aplomb). In this rehearsal, Not-Andy (sometimes known as пїЅDrew) kept moving after he was shot пїЅ probably to keep from hitting his head on the fireplace. I said, пїЅIf heпїЅs still moving, shoot him! Shoot him! пїЅ It started as just one extra shot, but by performance time Adam and not-Andy had come up perhaps the most spectacular execution of the show пїЅ including fountains of blood, spitting, and co-participation that verged on the homoeroticпїЅ

My memory of events is unclear, but I think the guys also added the giant пїЅsplurt o bloodпїЅ to the destruction of the helicopter in this rehearsal. I donпїЅt remember seeing it before this.

We did eventually get into the Rec Hall late Thursday night for a run-through. By this time, though, I was nearly catatonic from dealing with an endless stream of the unexpected that had nothing to do with our show but was making my life miserable. I thought (and have said here) that my cast was completely weaned from any sense of dependence on me. However, IпїЅm no good at hiding my emotions even under the best of circumstances. Even though I said only positive things, my cast was concerned. I think we have become interdependent. What concerned one, concerned all.

By showtime on Friday afternoon, though, all was well and the performance was fabulous. This was perhaps the most perfect possible audience for this show пїЅ a mixture of undergrads, grads, and faculty (and our Baker Co. High School kids), liberal and literate enough to get all the jokes, performance-savvy and ready for fun. The cast had a ball. They were rock-stars. Sarah Lee came into her own and I swear to God that blood from the helicopter spurted at least 20 feet into the air. I was so proud I almost cried.

SAVANNAH, GA -- Performance for the Southern State Communication Association Convention, April 2, 2008

I have been to Savannah, GA, once before. I remember it as being a pretty city, but it wasnпїЅt as beautiful as it was this timeпїЅ and may never be again. Theatre practitioners talk a lot about ensemble пїЅ the feeling of mutual trust, interdependence, and respect as artists пїЅ that can sometimes develop between a cast and crew. For collaborative directors, this is the Holy GrailпїЅ well, maybe not the Holy Grail because we all think we can take concrete steps that will allow us to achieve this each and every time we directпїЅunless things go horribly wrongпїЅ which sometimes they doпїЅ However, if youпїЅre really lucky, this sense of trust and respect extends beyond the production into the personal lives of the participants. Traveling, eating, and boarding together for two straight weeks through three states can sorely try this fragile web. It is entirely possible to respect someone as an artist and still not to be able to take their snoring and bizarre fascination with American Idol and/or Naruto .

We, the cast and crew of пїЅDarkness at Sunset and Vine, пїЅ were among the lucky few. Although it has happened to me before, IпїЅm still amazed at how through performance a group of people пїЅ half of whom did not even know each other before January of пїЅ08 пїЅ can come together and connect. Although after this show, we will to a greater or lesser extent go our separate ways, I will always look on Savannah as one of the very good moments of my life.

Okay, Hallmark card moment overпїЅ sorta. The show went on without a hitch. Our beloved KB (who tells me that the title of technical director means that he is пїЅtechnicallyпїЅ the director of the show) could not come to Savannah with us. although he was there by the magic of text messaging. Therefore we had to have a guest star fill the important role of пїЅRing Boy. пїЅ Dr. Justin Trudeau graciously filled in, bringing his inimitable enthusiasm and je ne sais quoi to the role. Chandler ThompsonпїЅs portrayal of the repulsive, lipless Kevin continues to grow. I like the hilarious byplay that he and Jay are developing between Kevin and Rush. Sarah Lee and Tiny Gun Man must have a sequelпїЅ.

4/10/08-4/12/08 - PERFORMANCES AT UNT

We did three shows at UNT. During the question and answer session after our performance at SSCA in Savannah, someone asked how it was to perform the piece in Texas. When we said that we hadnпїЅt done that yet, a big пїЅoooooпїЅ of sympathetic apprehension swept through the crowd. I wasnпїЅt (before that moment) greatly concerned about the prospect of playing this text in front of an audience that might be predominantly composed of viewers with more conservative views than my own. I figured we might have one or two people walk out, but I expected my show would get a fair hearing. Dentonites, both liberal and conservative, tend to be open-minded and willing to listen to other peopleпїЅs messed-up, wrong-headed opinions пїЅ even if only to have the opportunity to mock and vigorously dispute them later.

I was not wrong. Liberals, conservatives, and moderates attended. No one walked out. Most seemed to have very good time. It always seemed to take the audience about five minutes to drop into the right gear, though. I find the show very funny and laughed from moment one. I donпїЅt know if it was the non-stop violence, the slap-your-grannyпїЅs-face anti-Bush sentiment, or the sheer number of times cast members uttered certain synonyms for the word пїЅfornication, пїЅ but my giggles were usually audible above the stunned silence through the first scene. By the time Glen murders S. Crow to death, though, we always had пїЅem пїЅ laughing perhaps despite themselves. пїЅDarknessпїЅ is such a bizarrely joyful show, you canпїЅt help getting caught up in it, even if you violently disagree with the sentiments expressed. [Now, of course, this was all part of my secret plan to get people to think about the views expressed пїЅ especially if they disagreeпїЅ]

We had a very special guest in the audience for the Friday and Saturday night shows. Ginger Mayerson flew in from L. A. (the city of angels, baby!) to see the performance. The cast was nervous, but knowing her as well as I did, I was proud and excited to have her see what weпїЅd done to her deathless prose. She loved it. [Ginger, IпїЅm saving space right here to link to commentary from you to support or rebut this statement.] Although she mourned a few lines and scenes we cut (as did I), she was amazed at the way weпїЅd been about to compress the novella down to a script that would play out in around forty-five minutes, delighted by the characterizations, and enchanted by my bright and personable cast.

She was also there to see one of the more remarkable moments of the entire run. In the middle of one of the пїЅCounty HospitalпїЅ scenes, Jay Wilkinson does a flying back-kick flop-drop thing that always noisily takes out one of the folding chairs we use. On Friday night, he also almost overturned one of the heavy, wooden, black flats we use to block the doors. As the flat teetered and started to fall, audience members gasped, KB started towards the stage, Ginger gripped my arm, and poor Mr. Calvert interrupted his narration to have what looked like a small heart attack. I didnпїЅt even have a second of panic, though, because Andrea -- without ever breaking character пїЅ walked (yes, I said пїЅwalkedпїЅ as in пїЅnot ranпїЅ but пїЅwalkedпїЅ) up to the flat and one-handedly set it back into place before going on with the scene.

For me this serves as a good allegory for the state where we as cast and crew ended the run of this show [You could call it a metaphor, Jay.] Although things still happened that surprised us, like Nellie and Andrea we had become fearless. We worked with a confidence born not of the assurance offered by rote repetition and submission to a single figure of authority, but rather of our trust in each other and in our own judgment. This is the true goal of directed collaborative пїЅ creative self-confidence that leads to bold, innovative action.

My thanks and love to my cast and crew.

Dr. Kelly S. Taylor
