Ok for 8monthold use nasonex (mometasone) steroid nasel spray for slightly enlarged adenoids.History trach, bronch, lary malacia.Operated coarc aorta bicuspid valve?

It should have no effect on the heart problems. ...Read more

These drugs stimulate the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas to make more insulin. They work well in patients with type 2 diabetes (not type 1!!) for a while. In time, though, the pancreatic B-cells get "tired" and these drugs stop working. Gliclazide is not sold in the US. ...Read more
