- T4 is converted to its active metabolite T3. T3 and T4 then bind to thyroid receptor proteins in the cell nucleus and exert metabolic effects through control of DNA transcription and protein synthesis; involved in normal metabolism, growth, and development; promotes gluconeogenesis, increases utilization and mobilization of glycogen stores, and stimulates protein synthesis, increases basal metabolic rate,
- Chronic hypothyroidism predisposes patients to coronary artery disease
- Long-term therapy can decrease bone mineral density
- May decrease the levels/effects of sodium iodide; theophylline derivatives
- Pregnancy risk factor: A (no adverse effects to the fetus)
- Maternal hypothyroidism can be associated with adverse effects in the fetus, including premature birth and respiratory distress. Maternal hypothyroidism has also been associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes, including hypertension, anemia, and placental abruption. Presence of maternal thyroid antibodies may increase the risk of premature birth and miscarriage
- Adverse effects can be decreased by maintaining maternal euthyroidism during pregnancy. Physiologic thyroid hormone concentrations should be maintained prior to and during pregnancy.
- Levothyroxine is the drug of choice during pregnancy for hypothyroidism
- Dose should be increased 30-50% by 4-6 weeks gestation

- § Management of edema associated with heart failure and hepatic or renal disease, acute pulmonary edema; treatment of hypertension
- § Inhibits reabsorption of sodium and chloride in the ascending loop of Henle and distal renal tubule, interfering with the chloride-binding cotransport system, thus causing increased excretion of water, sodium, chloride, magnesium, and calcium
- § Given in excessive amounts results in diuresis, resulting in fluid and electrolyte depletion
- side effects: headaches, bullous pemphigoid, erythema multiofrme, rash, stevens-johnson syndrome, hypocalcemia, hypokalemia, metabolic alkalosis, anemia
- § Pregnancy risk category: C

- increases in HbA1c and fasting blood glucose have been reported
- (Antidiabetic Agent, Biguanide):
- management of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Contraindicated for renal disease or renal dysfunction (serum creatinine ≥1.5 mg/dL in males or ≥1.4 mg/dL in females) or abnormal creatinine clearance from any cause.
- Patients with renal function below the limit of normal for their age should not receive therapy.
- Dental information: Gastrointestinal: taste disorder
- (Antidiabetic Agent, Sulfonylurea)
- Hypoglycemia more likely in elderly patients, and in patients with impaired renal or hepatic function; advanced age, and concomitant use of beta-blockers or other sympatholytic agents may impair the patient’s ability to recognize the signs and symptoms of hypoglycemia.
- Stress-related states: It may be necessary to discontinue therapy and administer insulin if the patient is exposed to stress (fever, trauma, infection, surgery).
- Secondary failure: Loss of efficacy may be observed following prolonged use as a result of the progression of type 2 diabetes mellitus which results in continued beta cell destruction. In patients who were previously responding to sulfonylurea therapy, consider additional factors which may be contributing to decreased efficacy (eg, inappropriate dose, nonadherence to diet and exercise regimen). If no contributing factors can be identified, consider discontinuing use of the sulfonylurea due to secondary failure of treatment. Additional antidiabetic therapy (eg, insulin) will be required.
- Adverse Reactions:
- Cardiovascular: Syncope (<3%)
- Central nervous system: depression (<3%),
- Renal: Blood urea nitrogen increased, creatinine increased
- Dental information: Glipizide-dependent patients with diabetes (noninsulin dependent, type 2) should be appointed for dental treatment in morning in order to minimize chance of stress-induced hypoglycemia.
- (Antianginal Agent; Beta-Blocker, Beta-1 Selective): for hypertension, Angina pectoris, Postmyocardial infarction. Use caution with history of severe anaphylaxis to allergens; patients taking beta-blockers may become more sensitive to repeated challenges. Use with caution in patients with diabetes mellitus; may potentiate hypoglycemia and/or mask signs and symptoms. Use with caution in patients with a history of psychiatric illness; may cause or exacerbate CNS depression.
- Adverse Reactions: Central nervous system: depression
- Dental Information: Atenolol is a cardioselective beta-blocker. Local anesthetic with vasoconstrictor can be safely used in patients medicated with atenolol. Nonselective beta-blockers (ie, propranolol, nadolol) enhance the pressor response to epinephrine, resulting in hypertension and bradycardia; this has not been reported for atenolol. Many nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen and indomethacin, can reduce the hypotensive effect of beta-blockers after 3 or more weeks of therapy with the NSAID. Short-term NSAID use (ie, 3 days) requires no special precautions in patients taking beta-blockers.
- (Diuretic, Thiazide):
- for Edema (diuresis) and Hypertension

- Hematologic: thrombocytopenia
- Renal: Interstitial nephritis, renal dysfunction, renal failure
- (Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme (ACE) Inhibitor):
- for Heart failure, Hypertension, and Acute myocardial infarction
- • Hyperkalemia especially with patients with renal dysfunction, diabetes mellitus and concomitant use of potassium-sparing diuretics.
- • Hypotension/syncope: effects are most often observed in volume-depleted patients
- • Renal function deterioration: May be associated with deterioration of renal function and/or increases in serum creatinine, particularly in patients with low renal blood flow (eg, renal artery stenosis, heart failure) whose glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is dependent on efferent arteriolar vasoconstriction by angiotensin II; deterioration may result in oliguria, acute renal failure, and progressive azotemia. Small increases in serum creatinine may occur following initiation; consider discontinuation only in patients with progressive and/or significant deterioration in renal function.
- • Renal impairment: Use with caution in pre-existing renal insufficiency; dosage adjustment may be needed. Avoid rapid dosage escalation which may lead to further renal impairment.
- Dental information: orthostatic effects
- (Antidepressant, Serotonin/Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitor) for Depression, Generalized anxiety disorder, Panic disorder, and Social anxiety disorder
- Caution for • Bleeding risk: May impair platelet aggregation resulting in increased risk of bleeding events, particularly if used concomitantly with aspirin or NSAIDs due to ulcerogenic potential;
- • Hypercholesterolemia
- • Hypertension. May cause xerostomia, and may block salivary flow (parotid enlargement)
- Dental information:
- Local Anesthetic/Vasoconstrictor Precautions: Venlafaxine blocks norepinephrine reuptake within CNS synapses as part of its mechanisms. It has been suggested that vasoconstrictor be administered with caution and to monitor vital signs in dental patients taking antidepressants that affect norepinephrine in this way. Venlafaxine has been noted to produce a sustained increase in diastolic blood pressure and heart rate as a side effect.
- Effects on Dental Treatment: Significant xerostomia (normal salivary flow resumes upon discontinuation); may contribute to oral discomfort, especially in the elderly; taste perversion.
- Effects on Bleeding: May impair platelet aggregation resulting in increased risk of bleeding events, particularly if used concomitantly with aspirin, NSAIDs, warfarin, or other anticoagulants. Routine interruption of therapy for most dental procedures is not warranted. In medically complicated patients or extensive oral surgery, the decision to interrupt therapy must be based on the risk to benefit in an individual patient and a medical consult is suggested. If therapy is continued without interruption, the clinician should anticipate the potential for a prolonged bleeding time.
- (Antiplatelet Agent; Antiplatelet Agent, Cyclopentyltriazolopyrimidine):
- Acute coronary syndrome.
- Contraindications for moderate hepatic impairment; concomitant use of strong CYP3A4 inhibitors (eg, ketoconazole, clarithromycin, ritonavir, atazanavir, nefazodone)
- • Bleeding disorders: Use with caution in patients with platelet disorders, bleeding disorders, and/or at increased risk for bleeding (eg, PUD, trauma, or surgery).
- • Renal impairment: Use with caution in patients with renal impairment. Creatinine levels may rise during therapy (mechanism undetermined); monitor renal function.
- Concurrent drug therapy issues:
- • Aspirin/other NSAIDs: Maintenance doses of aspirin greater than 100 mg/day reduce the efficacy of ticagrelor and should be avoided.
- • Discontinuation of therapy: Premature discontinuation of therapy may increase the risk of cardiac events (eg, stent thrombosis with subsequent fatal or nonfatal MI). Duration of therapy, in general, is determined by the type of stent placed (bare metal or drug eluting) and whether an ACS event was ongoing at the time of placement.
- Patients taking ticagrelor may have shortness of breath.
- Effects on Bleeding: In the case of dental surgery, there is no scientific evidence to support discontinuation of aspirin. The discontinuation of aspirin may place the patient at risk for a thrombotic event or other cardiovascular complication. In particular, aspirin should not be discontinued in patients with cardiac stents that have not completed their full course of dual antiplatelet therapy (eg, aspirin and clopidogrel [prasugrel or ticagrelor]); patient-specific situations need to be discussed with cardiologist. When feasible, postponement of dental surgery until the completion of dual antiplatelet therapy should be considered. Any modification of aspirin therapy should be discussed with the prescribing physician.
Timolol eye drop
- (Beta-Blocker, Nonselective; Ophthalmic Agent, Antiglaucoma) for Glaucoma: Ophthalmic:
- • Diabetes: Use with caution in patients with diabetes mellitus; may potentiate hypoglycemia and/or mask signs and symptoms.
- Concurrent drug therapy issues:
- • Beta-blockers: Concomitant use with other topical beta-blockers should be avoided; monitor for increased effects (systemic or intraocular) with concomitant use of a systemic beta-blocker.
- • Inhaled anesthetic agents: Use with caution in patients receiving inhaled anesthetic agents known to depress myocardial contractility.
- Other warnings/precautions:
- • Absorption: Systemic absorption of timolol and adverse effects may occur with ophthalmic use, including bradycardia and/or hypotension. Beta-blocker therapy should not be withdrawn abruptly in order to avoid acute tachycardia, hypertension, and/or ischemia. Patients undergoing major surgery should be gradually tapered off therapy prior to procedure.
- • Appropriate use: Should not be used alone in angle-closure glaucoma (has no effect on pupillary constriction). Multidose vials have been associated with development of bacterial keratitis; avoid contamination.
