Hydrocodone/APAP (Mechanisms of Action)
Hydrocodone: binds to Mu and Kappa opioid receptors; Acetaminophen likely inhibits prostaglandin synthesis centrally and blocks pain impulse generation.
Lisinopril (Mechanism of Action)
Inhibits conversion of angiotensin I to angiotensin II be competitive inhibition of angiotensin converting enzyme (vasodilator)
Levothyroxine Sodium (Mechanism of Action)
Synthetic form of thyroxine, converted to T3 and binds to thyroid receptors
Inhibits HMG-CoA reductase to limit synthesis of cholesterol
Amlodipine (Mechanisms of Action)
Calcium channel blocker inhibits the influx of calcium ions in the membrane in vascular smooth muscle and cardiac muscle.
Omeprazole (Mechanism of Action)
Supress H+/K+ ATPase (proton pump) at the gastric parietal cells decreasing production of acid.
Amoxicillin Trihydrate (Mechanism of Action)
Inhibits bacterial cell wall synthesis
Atorvastatin (Mechanism of Action)
Inhibits HMG-CoA reductase, stopping the conversion of HMG-CoA to mevalonate, the early rate-limiting step in cholesterol
Metformin (Mechanism of Action)
Improves glucose tolerance in non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus patient. It decreased intestinal absorption of glucose, suppresses hepatic gluconeogenesis, and improves insulin sensitivity.
Azithromycin (Mechanism of Action)
Binds to the 50S ribosomal subunit resulting in inhibition of protein synthesis.
