Tom Thumb’s ‘CVS Pharmacy’ Gets a New Drug for COPD
CVS Pharmacies is the first chain to get a new treatment for COPDs after it announced a new pill called CVS-10 in late November.
CVS is a pharmacy chain that sells prescription drugs, health care products and medical equipment through its pharmacies in the United States.
The company has a pharmacy network with over 40,000 pharmacies across the United.
The new CVS treatment, CVS 10, is designed to slow the progression of COPD by treating certain parts of the body, according to the company.
The pill has a longer half-life than standard COPD medicines, which means it can be used for longer periods of time.
CVS is currently testing the drug in clinical trials, and will begin testing it in the U.S. in early 2018.
“The company is also taking additional steps to reduce the risk of side effects,” according to a statement from CVS.
“This includes: reducing the daily dose by half; reducing the number of capsules sold by CVS pharmacies; increasing the duration of CVS use; and discontinuing sales of CVRIs.”
The drug is also available for patients who don’t have a regular doctor or who have a medical condition that prevents them from having the drug delivered by CVRI.CVS said it’s not the first time the company has developed a new medication for COPDS.
In 2016, the company also announced a novel drug for COPds called ZVX-5, which is a newer version of the drug ZVZ-5.
ZVZ was first developed in 2015 and has already been approved by the FDA for use in people with COPD.ZVX was designed to treat the symptoms of COPDs by blocking an enzyme called COX-2, which causes inflammation and is the main contributor to COPD, according the American College of Physicians.
ZVY-5 is a new drug that will be offered as a generic in CVS stores beginning in 2018.
The drug was developed by CUB Pharmaceuticals, the first company to receive approval for a COPD drug from the FDA, according a CUB spokesperson.
The company said it will be working closely with CVS to develop a generic version of ZV-5 and other COPD medications.
