 Nabumetone
Nabumetone is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug[1] (NSAID), the only 1-naphthaleneacetic acid derivative. Nabumetone has been developed by Beecham. It is available under numerous brand names, such as Relafen, Relifex, and Gambaran. Nabumetone is a nonacidic NSAID that is rapidly metabolized in the liver to a major active metabolite, 6-methoxy-2-naphthyl acetic acid. As found with previous NSAIDs, nabumetone's active metabolite inhibits the cyclooxygenase enzyme and preferentially blocks ...
 Nadroparin
Nadroparin (trade name, Fraxiparine or Fraxodi) is an anticoagulant belonging to a class of drugs called low molecular weight heparins (LMWHs). Nadroparin was developed by sanofi-synthelabo. Nadroparin is used in general and orthopedic surgery to prevent thromboembolic disorders (deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism), and as treatment for deep vein thrombosis. It is also used to prevent clotting during hemodialysis, and for treatment of unstable angina and non-Q wave myocardial infarct...
 Nafarelin
Nafarelin is a gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist (GnRH agonist). Its proposed mechanism of action is the desensitization of pituitary GnRH receptors leading to a decrease in gonadotropin release, and ovarian hormone serum concentrations similar to those achieved in postmenopausal women. it decreases pituitary secretion of the gonadotropins luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). Nafarelin may be used in the treatment of estrogen-dependent conditions (such as endo...
 Nafcillin
Nafcillin sodium is a narrow-spectrum[1] beta-lactam antibiotic[2] of the penicillin class. As a beta-lactamase-resistant penicillin, it is used to treat infections caused by Gram-positive bacteria, in particular, species of staphylococci that are resistant to other penicillins. Nafcillin is considered therapeutically equivalent to oxacillin, although its safety profile is somewhat different.[3] Contents 1 Indications 2 Side-effects 3 Interactions 4 References Indications Nafcilli...
 Naftifine
Naftifine (brand name Naftin) is an allylamine antifungal drug for the topical treatment of tinea pedis, tinea cruris, and tinea corporis (fungal infections). Its precise mechanism of action is unknown, but may involve selectively blocking sterol biosynthesis via inhibition of the squalene 2,3-epoxidase enzyme.[1][2] The half-life is approximately 2–3 days.[2] The metabolites are excreted in the urine and feces.[3] References ^ Robertson Dirk B, Maibach Howard I, "Chapter 61. Dermato...

Advantages of nalmefene relative to naltrexone include longer half-life, greater oral bioavailability and n...
 Naloxone
Naloxone, sold under the brandname Narcan among others, is a medication used to block the effects of opioids, especially in overdose.[1] Naloxone may be combined within the same pill as an opioid to decrease the risk of misuse.

Phenylephrine is marketed as an alternative for the decongestant pseudoephedrine, although clinical trials show phenylephrine, taken orally at the recommended dose, to be no more effective than placebo.[1][2] Phenylephrine can also cause a decrease in heart rate through reflex bradycardia.[3] Conten...
 Naltrexone
Naltrexone is a drug that reverses the effects of opioids and is used primarily in the management of alcohol dependence and opioid dependence.[1] The closely related medication methylnaltrexone is used to treat opioid-induced constipation. Nalmefene is a very similar drug that is used for the same purposes as naltrexone. Naltrexone should not be confused with naloxone nor nalorphine, which are used in emergency cases of opioid overdose. In the US, naltrexone tablets cost between $0.93 and $12...
 Namenda Memantine
Memantine is the first in a novel class of Alzheimer's disease medications acting on the glutamatergic system by blocking NMDA receptors.

Memantine is marketed under the brands Namenda among others. Memantine has been shown to have a modest effect in moderate-to-severe Alzheimer's disease[2] and in dementia with Lewy bodies.[3][4] Despite years of re...
