Per the earlier posts on this weblog, I devised this sheet as a way to get a extra correct concept about what my sufferers had taken prior to now. I discovered that they have been in a position to recall many extra earlier remedies by studying by way of the record and that it was comparatively environment friendly. I posted this record to Twitter to solicit suggestions and corrections and made a few of these modifications. A number of individuals advised alphabetizing the lists, however I usually put the latest medicines on the high of the record and medicines that made be now not manufactured or extra hardly ever prescribed on the backside. There have been some suggestions for medicines which are accessible in different nations however not the US. I’d be amenable to modifying the record for particular nations if somebody may edit the present record and ensure it was corrected for the nation that you’re practising in. You could possibly additionally simply sort up your individual record. Additionally, you will discover a number of medicines which were discontinued both for security or financial causes. They’re on the record as a result of there are nonetheless related to the medicine historical past of many sufferers.
I discovered that this record was additionally helpful for analysis initiatives. I used to be concerned in a analysis mission final yr the place there was some confusion about what psychiatric medicines could be allowed in a examine that checked out antidipsogenic medicine. I confirmed my record to the Precept Investigator and different colleagues engaged on the mission and we determined in a short assembly the medicine that will be included or excluded within the protocol by simply going by way of the doc and checking them off.
The one main class of medicine excluded from the desk are acetylcholinesterase inhibitors ACHEIs) together with donepezil (Aricept), rivastigmine (Exelon), and galantamine (Razadyne). These medicines are used within the remedy of Alzheimer’s Illness together with the NMDA receptor antagonist memantine (Namenda). Psychiatrists prescribe these medicines and the one cause they weren’t included within the desk is house and the very fact it might have required main formatting modifications.
Watch this house for additional updates. I’ll date and submit hyperlinks to new updates within the house under with the dates that the replace occurred. I may even submit the desk drug interactions with medicines used to deal with atrial fibrillation within the earlier submit.
