Foreign drugs

I don't know if this is the right place to ask, but I figured I'd try anyway -

I spent several months in Europe recently and over the course of my travels, I came down with a cold once and a uti once. I basically went to the pharmacist, told them my symptoms and they gave me some weird drugs that I'd never heard of before. I just found the boxes and I was wondering what everything was and why we don't have them in the US (or if we do and they're under another name).

"Cantalene" - Chlorhydrate de lysozyme - suck on one 6 times per day - used for cold, seems to have some type of anesthetic in it.

"Acido pipemidico jet" - I think it's Pipemidic Acid in English - used for UTI after a 3 day treatment of Cipro didn't take care of it

Re: Foreign drugs

i would take that box to your pharmacist and ask them about the actual meds and what they feel would be a comparable med for you.they must have some way of knowing(some sort of guidebook or PC program they can use) just what some foriegn meds are since people DO come from other countries to live here with their foriegn meds,you know what i mean?i think this would be the best place to really find out any real valid info.i wouldn't trust anything on the net when it comes to meds.a bit too risky.good luck,**
