Question Answer
Famotidine, PepcidPotent inhibitor of gastric acid secretion by blocking H2-receptors
Febuxostat, Uloric A xanthine oxidase inhibitor which acts by decreasing serum uric acid
Fenofibrate, Tricor Activates perioxisome proliferator activated receptor alpha (PPARalpha). Through this mechanism, fenofibrate increases lipolysis and elimination of triglyceride-rich particles from plasma by activating lipoprotein lipase and reducing production of an inhibitor of lipoprotein lipase activity, apoprotein C-III
Fentanyl, Duragesic Acts primarily with the opioid mu-receptors in the central nervous system including the brain, spinal cord and other tissues
Finasteride, ProscarCompetitively and specifically inhibits 5alpha-reductase (type 2), an isoenzyme that metabolizes testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the prostate gland, liver, and skin.
Fluconazole, DiflucanInhibits fungal sterol synthesis leading to aggregation of 14 alpha-methyl sterols in the fungi
Fluoxetine, ProzacInhibits serotonin uptake in neurons of the central nervous system
Fluticasone, Flonase Inhibits mast cells, eosinophils, basophils, lymphocytes, macrophages, and neutrophils
Fluticasone + Salmeterol, Advair Inhibits mast cells, eosinophils, basophils, lymphocytes, macrophages, and neutrophils AND stimulates adenyl cyclase resulting in increased intracellular cyclic AMP level which in turn triggers bronchial smooth muscles relaxation
Folic Acid, Folvite Necessary for normal erythropoiesis, synthesis of purine and thymidylates, metabolism of amino acids such as glycine and methionine, and the metabolism of histidine.
Furosemide, LasixBlocks the absorption of sodium and chloride in the kidney tubules (proximal and distal tubules, also in the loop of Henle)
Gabapentin, NeurontinAppears to possess GABA-mimetic properties but its precise mechanism of action remains unclear
Gemfibrozil, LopidStimulates peroxisome proliferator activated receptor alpha, which causes a decrease in triglyceride levels and an increase in high-density lipoprotein levels, with a modest decrease in low-density lipoprotein
Glimepiride, AmarylStimulates insulin release from functioning pancreatic beta cells by binding to the sulfonylurea receptor,which results in insulin release
Glipizide, GlucotrolStimulates insulin release from functioning pancreatic beta cells by binding to the sulfonylurea receptor,which results in insulin release
Glyburide, Diabeta Stimulates insulin release from functioning pancreatic beta cells by binding to the sulfonylurea receptor,which results in insulin release
