Why is amlexanox prescribed for asthma in japan but not here in the us?

Pharma decision: Studies with Amlexanox in treating asthma including Aspirin sensitive asthma have been published in japanese medical journals since 1989.

Will using amlexanox for canker sores help you lose weight?

Will using amlexanox for canker sores help you lose weight?

No: Using Amlexanox for you canker sore will not effect your weight loss because your canker sores heal quickly, less than 10 day. You are using this medication for a short application and not long enough for other effects. There have been some studies that suggest this medication can effect obesity, diabetes and asthma but it has not been studied enough to know if this will work in people.
