Top 200 Drugs Pharmacology Podcast – Drugs 26-30

On this episode of the Top 200 Drugs pharmacology podcast, I cover fluticasone nasal spray, allopurinol, alendronate, famotidine, and cefdinir.

Fluticasone is a corticosteroid that can be used nasally for the treatment of allergic rhinitis.

Allopurinol is a xanthine oxidase inhibitor used to reduce uric acid and prevent gout flares.

Alendronate is a bisphosphonate that inhibits the action of osteoclasts. This action helps treat osteoporosis.

Famotidine is a histamine-2 receptor antagonist that helps reduce gastric acid secretion and alleviate heartburn symptoms.

Cefdinir is a third-generation cephalosporin that is often used as an alternative for those who cannot take penicillin antibiotics. There is a small risk for cross-reactivity that a clinician has to consider.
