MACROPEN (Midecamycin) is an antibiotic of the group of the macrolides. They are active against aerobic and anaerobic gram-positive cocci (exception enterococci) and gram-negative anaerobes. It is absorbed when taken orally. Is recommended for upper and lower respiratory infections, infections of mouth cavity & skin, soft tissue & urinary tract infections, Chlamydia, diphtheria, pertussis., etc. There are tablets for adults and suspension for kids. DIOXIDIN (Dioxidine) is a anti-microbe medication for external use and local treatment. It is active against Staphylococci and Streptococci inter alia. NASIVIN ( Oxymetazoline) -nasal drops used for local treatment. It decreases oedema, hyperaemia and exudation. It is indicated for acute rhinitis, sinusitis, otitis media and Eustachian tube infections. It should not be used long-term. PHENCAROLUM (Quifenadine) is a anti-histamine.
