Amyl Nitrite Inhalant USP >

Indications

Amyl Nitrite Inhalant USPAmyl Nitrite Inhalant USP is an organic nitrite used for the relief and prophylactic management of angina pectoris. The drug is delivered via inhalation.

Pharmacology

The principal pharmacological action of Amyl Nitrite is relaxation of vascular smooth muscle, resulting in generalized vasodilation. Although Amyl Nitrite reflexly increases heart rate and myocardial contractility which increases myocardial oxygen consumption, the reduction in ventricular wall tension results in a net decrease in myocardial oxygen consumption. By decreasing myocardial oxygen consumption, Amyl Nitrite alters the imbalance of myocardial oxygen supply which causes angina pectoris.

Product Stability

James Alexander’s Amyl Nitrite Inhalant USP carries an expiration date of three years.

Product Storage Conditions

Keep protected from light at 2-8 degrees C (36-46 degrees F). Amyl Nitrite is extremely flammable. Keep from heat and open flame.

Directions for Use

The inhalant should be held away from the face while activating the package. To break the inner vial, crush ONCE between the thumb and forefinger at the dot located at the center of the inhalant. Carefully pass the inhalant back and forth close to the nose of the affected person several times. Discard inhalant after use. Relief usually occurs in one to three minutes.

Precautions

Povidone Iodine Topical Solution USP >

Product Description

Povidone iodine topical solution USP (PVP) is an aqueous formulation of povidone-iodine, a compound formed by heating 1-vinyl-2-pyrrolidinone with elemental iodine. The povidone component serves the function of iodide in aqueous iodine solutions and tinctures, which is to increase the solubility and to provide a slow release form of iodine.

Advantages

As compared to iodine solutions and tinctures, PVP solutions offer the following advantages:

  • Prolonged Action- By liberating elemental iodine more slowly, povidone iodine solution has prolonged antimicrobial activity.
  • Less Irritating- Since the concentration of free iodine in PVP solutions is lower, povidone iodine solutions are less irritating, particularly under occlusive dressings.
  • Nonstaining- PVP solutions stain the skin and clothing less than iodine solutions and tinctures.

Indications

PVP Topical solutions retain the broad spectrum antimicrobial and antiviral activity of iodine. It is used for the prevention of infection in minor burns, abrasions and cuts and in the preparation of the skin for injection and hyperalimentation procedures.

Product Stability

James Alexander’s Povidone iodine USP swabs carry a five (5) year expiration date, the maximum amount allowed by the Food and Drug Administration.

Benzoin contains esters of cinnamic and benzoic acids together with free acids. Amounts and types of esters vary with its source. CBT is prepared by mixing benzoin with aloe, storax, and Tolu Balsam. Alcohol is used as the menstruum.

Indications

  • Skin Protectant- CBT is widely used as a skin protectant, and is particularly effective for ulcers, bedsores, cracked nipples, and fissures of the lips and anus.

Medicaine® Sting and Bite Relief Formulation >

Product Description

Medicaine® Sting and Bite Relief is a James Alexander Corporation proprietary formulation that provides relief of pain and itching associated with insect bites and stings.

Active Ingredients

Medicaine® Sting and Bite Relief was developed in accordance with the Food and Drug Administration’s proposed rules for over-the counter topical analgesic drug products and contains two active ingredients (menthol and benzocaine) in the maximum allowable concentrations:

  • Menthol – According to the FDA Panel, “When applied to the skin, menthol stimulates the nerves for the perception of cold, while depressing those which perceive pain.”

James Alexander has combined these two highly effective active ingredients in a water soluble base that assures the formulation’s effectiveness.
