Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. So you tell your doctor that your asthma symptoms have returned. Which of the following would he NOT prescribe for this problem?

Answer: Wellbutrin

While budesonide, fluticasone and tiotropium (Symbicort, Advair and Spiriva) are all used to help with breathing problems like asthma and C.O.P.D., bupropion (Wellbutrin) is used as an anti-anxiety medicine to treat depressive disorders.
2. You are over 35 and there is a history of stroke in your family. Which medication might be prescribed to help alleviate the symptoms?

Answer: Plavix

The drug clopidogrel (Plavix) is given to patients to protect against strokes or heart attacks. It helps by preventing blood clots from clogging your arteries. Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) is used to treat allergies, while ibuprofen (Advil) and naproxen (Aleve) are used to lessen pain.
3. For the men, which one of the following can help with a growing prostate problem?

Answer: Avodart

The generic medicine dutasteride (Avodart) can be used to help shrink an enlarged prostate gland, but first check with a doctor to make sure that's what you have. Clonezepam (Klonopin) is used to treat anxiety and hydrocodone (Vicodin) is a strong pain reliever. Benadryl is an antihistamine used to treat insect bites and allergic reactions.
4. And for the ladies, which birth control pill might you use?

Answer: Yaz

The medicine drospirenone, whose brand name is Yaz, is an oral contraceptive which prevents pregnancy; there are many alternatives on the market for this purpose. Cortisol (cortisone) is a steroid to reduce inflammation; Allegra (fexofenadine) is used for allergies and Celebrex (celecoxib) reduces pain.
5. You tell your doctor your symptom and he prescribes sumatriptan (Imitrex). From what are you suffering?

Answer: migraine headaches

Although the incorrect answers might help cause a headache, sumatriptan (Imitrex) is taken specifically to relieve migraine pain in adults. Be aware, however, that this medication can have serious side effects on the heart.
6. Your friend has been diagnosed with diabetes. What medication might the doctor recommend?

Answer: Glucophage

Glucophage or metformin is an oral medication used to treat type 2 diabetes in children and adults. When insulin is not required, metformin may be prescribed. Nasonex (mometosone furoate) is used for a stuffy nose; Levitra (vardenafil) treats erectile dysfunction; Prevacid (lansoprazole) is used for acid reflux.
7. Have you seen the commercials for tolterodine (Detrol) with the people made out of lead pipes? For what problem is this pill used?

Answer: overactive bladder

Detrol or tolterodine capsules are used to treat urinary urgency problems, i.e., so you can be "on the go" instead of just "going". It is an antimuscarinic drug, which can also be used to treat Parkinson's Disease, by acting on the acetylcholine receptors. Too much information, eh?
8. Which medicine does Sally Field use to treat her osteoporosis?

Answer: Boniva

This was a little tricky because all of the above can be used to treat osteoporosis in post-menopausal women and help strenghthen bones. Sally recommends ibandronate (Boniva) because it's one pill once a month, and because she is being paid to do the commercial!
Aclasta, Fosamax and Avista are brand names for zoledronate, alendronate and raloxifene, respectively.
9. Which purple pill can be used to treat heartburn and acid reflux?

Answer: Nexium

Nexium or esomeprazole is advertised as "the little purple pill" which treats gastroesphageal reflux disease, also known as GERD, in children and adults. It even purports to help heal the tissues that excess stomach acid has eroded.
Paxil (paroxetine), Ativan (lorazepam) and Cymbalta (duloxetine) are all used to treat depression.
10. And now, before we forget, which medicine has been prescribed to treat Alzheimer's Disease?

Answer: Aricept

Aricept or donepezil has been shown to help slow the progression of the symptoms of Alzheimer's Disease, also known as "mild to moderate dementia". It should not be used when taking antihistamines - but, as always, consult your physician before taking any medication!
Lipitor (atorvastatin) is used to reduce cholesterol levels; Propecia (finasteride) treats prostate gland enlargement; and Viagra (sildenafil) is yet another drug used to treat impotence.
