MechanismDrugDisease or Use
Inhibition of osteoclast action, induces osteoclast apoptosisPrevention of osteoporosis
Glucocorticoid receptor agonist (several mechanisms)Nausea and vomiting associated with cancer chemotherapy/radiation, postoperative nausea and vomiting
Irreversible proton pump (H+/K+-ATPase) inhibitors, block secretion of gastric acidPeptic ulcer disease of all etiologies, Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, gastroesophageal reflux disease
Osteoporosis treatmentOsteoporosis
Inhibitors of xanthine oxidase, intended to reduce uric acid synthesisChronic gout
Inhibitor of cyclooxygenase and 5-lipoxygenase in GI tract, modulator of B-cell responses and angiogenesis (sulfasalazine metabolized to mesalamine by colon bacteria)Inflammatory bowel disease, rheumatoid arthritis
Parathyroid hormone agonist, stimulation of osteoblast action more than osteoclast action (with intermittent injection), increases GI calcium absorption, increases renal tubular caSevere osteoporosis
5-HT3 receptor antagonist, intended to block serotonin activation of the vagus nerve and the chemoreceptor trigger zoneNausea and vomiting associated with cancer chemotherapy/radiation, postoperative nausea and vomiting

Softener of formed stools by attracting fat and water to the stool (essentially “grease”)Constipation, to avoid straining after MI or surgery
Hygroscopic indigestible fiber (absorb water in intestinal lumen or draw water into the intestinal lumen, increase bulk- can either liquefy or soldify stool)Diarrhea, constipation
NK1 receptor antagonist, intended to block substance P activation of the vagus nerve and chemoreceptor trigger zoneNausea and vomiting associated with cancer chemotherapy/radiation, postoperative nausea and vomiting

Reduced breakdown of proteoglycans, protease inhibition, inhibition of prostaglandin synthesisOsteoarthritis (increase joint lubrication, relieve pain)
Non-absorbable sugarsConstipation
Non-absorbable saltConstipation
Reversible, relatively-selective COX-2 inhibitorPain, inflammation, osteoarthritis
Kill H. pylori and other bacteria, inhibit prostaglandin-mediated inflammation and intestinal hypermotility, inhibit intestinal secretionPeptic ulcer disease, mild diarrhea
