Anti-inflammatory agents that are non-steroidal in nature. In addition to anti-inflammatory actions, they have analgesic, antipyretic, and platelet-inhibitory actions.They act by blocking the synthesis of prostaglandins by inhibiting cyclooxygenase, which converts arachidonic acid to cyclic endoperoxides, precursors of prostaglandins. Inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis accounts for their analgesic, antipyretic, and platelet-inhibitory actions; other mechanisms may contribute to their anti-inflammatory effects.
Studies used to test etiologic hypotheses in which inferences about an exposure to putative causal factors are derived from data relating to characteristics of persons under study or to events or experiences in their past.

Legalized physician-assisted suicide in Oregon--the first year's experience. (1/2434)

BACKGROUND AND METHODS: On October 27, 1997, Oregon legalized physician-assisted suicide. We collected data on all terminally ill Oregon residents who received prescriptions for lethal medications under the Oregon Death with Dignity Act and who died in 1998. The data were obtained from physicians' reports, death certificates, and interviews with physicians. We compared persons who took lethal medications prescribed under the act with those who died from similar illnesses but did not receive prescriptions for lethal medications. RESULTS: Information on 23 persons who received prescriptions for lethal medications was reported to the Oregon Health Division; 15 died after taking the lethal medications, 6 died from underlying illnesses, and 2 were alive as of January 1, 1999. The median age of the 15 patients who died after taking lethal medications was 69 years; 8 were male, and all 15 were white. Thirteen of the 15 patients had cancer. The case patients and controls were similar with regard to sex, race, urban or rural residence, level of education, health insurance coverage, and hospice enrollment. No case patients or controls expressed concern about the financial impact of their illness. One case patient and 15 controls expressed concern about inadequate control of pain (P=0.10). The case patients were more likely than the controls to have never married (P=0.04) and were more likely to be concerned about loss of autonomy due to illness (P=0.01) and loss of control of bodily functions (P=0.02). At death, 21 percent of the case patients and 84 percent of the controls were completely disabled (P<0.001). CONCLUSIONS: During the first year of legalized physician-assisted suicide in Oregon, the decision to request and use a prescription for lethal medication was associated with concern about loss of autonomy or control of bodily functions, not with fear of intractable pain or concern about financial loss. In addition, we found that the choice of physician-assisted suicide was not associated with level of education or health insurance coverage.  (+info)

Randomised controlled trial of effect of feedback on general practitioners' prescribing in Australia. (2/2434)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect on general practitioners' prescribing of feedback on their levels of prescribing. DESIGN: Randomised controlled trial. SETTING: General practice in rural Australia. PARTICIPANTS: 2440 full time recognised general practitioners practising in non-urban areas. INTERVENTION: Two sets of graphical displays (6 months apart) of their prescribing rates for 2 years, relative to those of their peers, were posted to participants. Data were provided for five main drug groups and were accompanied by educational newsletters. The control group received no information on their prescribing. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Prescribing rates in the intervention and control groups for the five main drug groups, total prescribing and potential substitute prescribing and ordering before and after the interventions. RESULTS: The intervention and control groups had similar baseline characteristics (age, sex, patient mix, practices). Median prescribing rates for the two groups were almost identical before and after the interventions. Any changes in prescribing observed in the intervention group were also seen in the control group. There was no evidence that feedback reduced the variability in prescribing nor did it differentially affect the very high or very low prescribers. CONCLUSIONS: The form of feedback evaluated here-mailed, unsolicited, centralised, government sponsored, and based on aggregate data-had no impact on the prescribing levels of general practitioners.  (+info)

A comparison of three methods of setting prescribing budgets, using data derived from defined daily dose analyses of historic patterns of use. (3/2434)

BACKGROUND: Prescribing matters (particularly budget setting and research into prescribing variation between doctors) have been handicapped by the absence of credible measures of the volume of drugs prescribed. AIM: To use the defined daily dose (DDD) method to study variation in the volume and cost of drugs prescribed across the seven main British National Formulary (BNF) chapters with a view to comparing different methods of setting prescribing budgets. METHOD: Study of one year of prescribing statistics from all 129 general practices in Lothian, covering 808,059 patients: analyses of prescribing statistics for 1995 to define volume and cost/volume of prescribing for one year for 10 groups of practices defined by the age and deprivation status of their patients, for seven BNF chapters; creation of prescribing budgets for 1996 for each individual practice based on the use of target volume and cost statistics; comparison of 1996 DDD-based budgets with those set using the conventional historical approach; and comparison of DDD-based budgets with budgets set using a capitation-based formula derived from local cost/patient information. RESULTS: The volume of drugs prescribed was affected by the age structure of the practices in BNF Chapters 1 (gastrointestinal), 2 (cardiovascular), and 6 (endocrine), and by deprivation structure for BNF Chapters 3 (respiratory) and 4 (central nervous system). Costs per DDD in the major BNF chapters were largely independent of age, deprivation structure, or fundholding status. Capitation and DDD-based budgets were similar to each other, but both differed substantially from historic budgets. One practice in seven gained or lost more than 100,000 Pounds per annum using DDD or capitation budgets compared with historic budgets. The DDD-based budget, but not the capitation-based budget, can be used to set volume-specific prescribing targets. CONCLUSIONS: DDD-based and capitation-based prescribing budgets can be set using a simple explanatory model and generalizable methods. In this study, both differed substantially from historic budgets. DDD budgets could be created to accommodate new prescribing strategies and raised or lowered to reflect local intentions to alter overall prescribing volume or cost targets. We recommend that future work on setting budgets and researching prescribing variations should be based on DDD statistics.  (+info)

Does the availability of prescribed drugs affect rates of self poisoning? (4/2434)

The trends in self-poisoning rates and in rates of prescribing of the major drug groups were compared. Over the period 1981-91, barbiturate prescribing and self poisoning both fell by 80%; for antidepressants, prescribing increased by over 40% and self poisoning by 30%; for antipsychotics, both rose by 30%; for benzodiazepines, poisoning fell by 30% and prescribing by 20%. Even for analgesic drugs, which are also available over the counter, there was a correspondence between changes in self poisoning and prescribing. The availability of prescribed drugs is directly related to their use for self poisoning. Restricting the availability of these drugs is a possible preventative strategy, although further research on this is needed.  (+info)

Following advice in general practice. (5/2434)

A random sample of 521 patients to whom prescriptions had been issued in an urban general practice were investigated to see how well they followed advice about taking medicines.Most factors that have been previously reported as affecting this did not appear to do so. A very high degree of compliance was achieved and it is suggested that the key factor in this is the relationship between doctor and patient.  (+info)

Recent developments in maintenance prescribing and monitoring in the United Kingdom. (6/2434)

After a brief historical review of British drug legislation and public and governmental attitudes, this paper describes the wide range of policies and practices that have appeared since the explosion of illicit drug abuse in the 1960s. The spectrum goes from a reluctance to prescribe at all to maintenance on injectable opiates. Comparisons are made with differing attitudes to the availability of abortion in public health services. Compared with 5 years ago, about three times more methadone is being prescribed. There is a steady increase in prescriptions for injectable methadone but heroin maintenance is still rare. The "British System" permits great flexibility in the choice of opiates for maintenance. Some amphetamine-prescribing programmes also exist. Hair analysis for drugs to monitor levels of both prescribed and unprescribed drugs is a welcome and promising alternative to undignified and often misleading urine tests.  (+info)

Harm reduction in Bern: from outreach to heroin maintenance. (7/2434)

In Switzerland, harm-reduction programs have the support of the national government and many localities, in congruence with much of the rest of Europe and in contrast with the United States, and take place in public settings. The threat of AIDS is recognized as the greater harm. This paper describes the overall national program and highlights the experience from one city; the program is noteworthy because it is aimed at gathering comparative data from controlled trials.  (+info)

Near-patient test for C-reactive protein in general practice: assessment of clinical, organizational, and economic outcomes. (8/2434)

BACKGROUND: The benefits of near-patient, point-of-care tests have not been fully examined. We have assessed the clinical, organizational, and economic outcomes of implementing a near-patient test for C-reactive protein (CRP) in general practice. METHODS: In a randomized crossover trial during intervention periods, general practitioners (GPs) were allowed to measure CRP within 3 min, using NycoCard(R) CRP. During control periods, they had to mail blood samples for CRP measurements to the hospital laboratory and received test results 24-48 h later. Twenty-nine general practice clinics participated (64 GPs), and 1853 patients were included in the study. Results were evaluated at both the level of participating GPs and the level of included patients. RESULTS: For participating GPs, the overall use of erythrocyte sedimentation rates (ESRs) decreased by 8% (95% confidence interval, 1-14%) during intervention periods, and the number of blood samples mailed to the hospital laboratory decreased by 6% (1-10%). No reduction in the prescription of antibiotics was seen. The proportion of study patients having a follow-up telephone consultation was reduced from 63% to 53% (P = 0. 0001), and patients with CRP concentrations >50 mg/L had their antibiotic treatments started earlier when CRP was measured in general practices (P = 0.0161). CONCLUSION: The implementation of the near-patient CRP test was cost-effective mainly on the basis of a reduction in the use of services from the hospital laboratory by GPs. If the implementation is followed by education and clinical guidelines, opportunities exist for additional reduction in the use of ESR and for a more appropriate use of antibiotics.  (+info)

The smaller increase in the mean number of repeat prescriptions in the intervention group was mainly due to these patients being more likely to have drugs stopped. Intervention patients had more changes to treatment in general, perhaps because the pharmacist did a more detailed review than the general practitioners. This effect could be important because patients compliance has been shown to decrease with increasing number of drugs.18 Stopping unnecessary drugs may also reduce the risk of adverse effects and interactions.. Review of drug treatment by pharmacists could have increased general practice consultation rates if patients made appointments to confirm advice given by the pharmacist, to have tests done, or to have treatment recommendations implemented. Consultations did increase immediately after the review, but the total number in the year was not different from that in the control group. The increase in consultations was due to patients requiring tests (usually referred to the practice ...

Antibiotics are commonly prescribed to critically ill patients throughout the world, with rates as high as 60%.1 A major concern is the almost universal observation that 31 - 77% of these are inappropriate.1-5 The inappropriate use of antibiotics is associated with increased morbidity, mortality and cost, and is a major driver in the emergence of resistant pathogens. Antibiotic prescription practices in South African intensive care units (ICUs) have not been described in the public or private sectors. Apart from its economic implications, this information is relevant because of the emergence of extremely high levels of drug resistance among Gram-negative bacilli in South Africa.6. As a continuum of the National Critical Care Audit, the Critical Care Society of Southern Africa (CCSSA) undertook a 1-day prevalence study of infection as a first step to ascertain the national profile of sepsis among critically ill patients.7-11 One aspect of the study was to ascertain antibiotic prescription ...

The prevalence of potentially inappropriate opioid, benzodiazepine and stimulant prescriptions in Ontario fell by 40 per cent, 58 per cent and 60 per cent, respectively, after legislation and a centralized prescription monitoring system was implemented.. Every year, thousands of Canadians die of drug overdoses from misused prescription drugs such as opioids, benzodiazepines and stimulants, said lead author Tara Gomes, a scientist at the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute of St. Michaels Hospital. This led to increasing concern among Ontario physicians and public health officials.. Ontario passed the Narcotics Safety and Awareness Act in November 2011. The act required physicians to identify themselves by name and their licensing bodys registration number on prescriptions for all narcotics and other controlled substances dispensed in the province. This legislation also mandated the development of the Narcotics Monitoring System, which was launched in May 2012.. The Narcotics Monitoring System ...

They found that in 2007 420,000 prescriptions were issued for ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) medication - equivalent to around 35,000 children once repeat prescriptions are taken into account - up by a third since 2005. More than 113,000 prescriptions were written for antidepressants for children under 16 (equivalent to about 9,000 children) and 86,000 prescriptions were written for antipsychotics, a 7% rise since 2005 ...

Pharmacists may soon be seeing a measurable drop in the number of pediatric prescriptions for antibiotic products, thanks to a new $1.6-million public information campaign launched this fall by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The initiative, called Get Smart: Know When Antibiotics Work, represents a new direction for the CDCs long-running campaign to discourage doctors from overprescribing antibiotics. Instead of targeting physicians, the new effort hopes to discourage parents from pestering pediatricians into writing unnecessary prescriptions for these drugs. CDC concerns about overprescribing are underscored by 1995 research findings suggesting that more than 40% of all antibiotics are prescribed inappropriately for viral rather than bacterial infections. ...

Xanax prescriptions are indicated for long-term management of chronic disorders such as anxiety with depression, panic disorder and generalized anxiety disorder. For the maximum effect from Xanax, the prescription will change as the dosage is adjusted for control. The initial dosage will be low and then it will be titrated up in gradual increments to reach a balance between the least amount of Xanax and the most satisfactory result.. When prescription medications are changed frequently, it is easy to become confused about the correct dosage. Having your pharmacist available to answer your questions is vital to your peace of mind and the success of the treatment. We at PS Card understand the importance of having a connection with your pharmacist, and having affordable medicine at the same time. Thats why we have made it possible for you to fill your Xanax prescriptions at your local pharmacy and also save money.. ...

Background: Data from trials suggest that antibiotics reduce the risk of complications of sore throat by at least 50%, but few trials for complications have been done in modern settings, and datasets of delayed antibiotic prescription are underpowered. Observational evidence is important in view of poor compliance with antibiotic treatment outside trials, but no prospective observational cohort studies have been done to date. Methods: We generated a large prospective cohort from the DESCARTE study, and the PRISM component of DESCARTE, of 12829 adults presenting with sore throat (≤2 weeks duration) in primary care. Our follow-up of the cohort was based on a detailed and structured review of routine medical records, and analysis of the comparison of three antibiotic prescription strategies (no antibiotic prescription, immediate antibiotic prescription, and delayed antibiotic prescription) to control for the propensity to prescribe antibiotics. Information about antibiotic prescription was recorded in
Chinese herbal products (CHPs) have been frequently used among patients with chronic diseases including hypertension; however, the co-prescription pattern of herbal formulae and single herbs remain uncharacterized. Thus, this large-scale pharmacoepidemiological study evaluated the frequency and co-prescription pattern of CHPs for treating hypertension in Taiwan from 2003 to 2009. The database of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) outpatient claims was obtained from the National Health Insurance in Taiwan. Patients with hypertension during study period were defined according to diagnostic codes in the International Classification of Disease Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification. The frequencies and percentages of herbal formula and single herb prescriptions for hypertension were analyzed. We also applied association rules to evaluate the CHPs co-prescription patterns. The hypertension cohort included 154,083 patients, 123,240 patients of which (approximately 80 %) had used TCM at least once. In total, 81

OMICS Journals Press Releases, Factors associated with an increased risk of potentially inappropriate prescriptions at hospital discharge in comorbid older patients
stored.. Every 10 minutes a young child in the U.S. is taken to the emergency room because of possible poisoning from swallowing a prescription medicine or over-the-counter medicine, says Matthew M. Davis, M.D., M.A.P.P., director of the C.S. Mott Childrens Hospital National Poll on Childrens Health.. Emergency room visits for accidental poisonings among young children have become much more frequent in the last decade. We hope the results of this poll are a reminder to parents, grandparents and all those who care for young children: check around your homes to make sure that medicines are safely stored out of reach, says Davis, who also is associate professor in the Child Health Evaluation and Research Unit at the U-M Medical School, and associate professor of Public Policy at the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy.. The poll results showed 23 percent of grandparents and 5 percent of parents reported storing prescription medicine in easy-to-access places, including daily-dose boxes that ...

Concerning the basics of PD prescription writing-and only the basics, since theres lots to say about this interesting topic-the minimum prescription should specify the following:. 1. What kind of PD does the patient use: for the most part, we distinguish between CAPD (continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis, in which the individual manually performs fluid exchanges, often several times throughout the course of a day) versus CCPD (continuous cycling peritoneal dialysis, in which a PD cycler machine is used to perform automated exchanges, usually at night), though often components of both are part of the prescription.. 2. How much fluid volume per bag? Usually either 2 Liter or 2.5 Liter bags are used.. 3. What percentage of dextrose solution is used? Ive included in a previous post the common color-coding scheme PD patients use to specify which solution they use; this is often invaluable because patients often know only what color bag they use, not the numerical value of how much dextrose ...

This morning a published article from Drug Discovery & Development shared troubling and interesting statistics regarding prescription medication toxicity. A unique sensitive toxicity test was developed at the University of Utah that makes it possible to uncover more of these dangerous side effects early in pharmaceutical prescription development. This could help to reduce the risk of consumers being exposed to unsafe prescriptions. Shocking is the fact that about one third of all prescription drugs approved by the FDA in the United States are withdrawn from the market or require added warning labels limiting their use. That new drug that is being pushed has almost a 33 percent chance of exposing you the consumer to a dangerous side effect. These numbers are not comforting by any means. Consumers are better off with medications that have been on the market for awhile or better yet no prescription at all if possible. The fewer prescription medications that you have to take the better off you ...

In acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (AECOPD) antibiotic overprescribing leads to antimicrobial resistance and underprescribing may cause poor patient outcomes. Objective. This study aimed to evaluate changes in over- and underprescribing of antibiotics after two interventions to optimize antibiotic prescribing in AECOPD in Spain. Methods. In 2008 and 2009, general practitioners (GPs) registered patients in a 3-week period before and after interventions. Two types of intervention were conducted: GPs in the full-intervention group (FIG) were exposed to a multifaceted intervention and given access to C-reactive protein (CRP) rapid test; ...

Objectives This paper aims to examine ethnic differences in financial barriers to access to prescription medication in New Zealand.. Methods Data from SoFIE-Health (wave 3), which is an add-on to the Statistics New Zealand-led longitudinal Survey of Family, Income and Employment (SoFIE) (N=18 320), were analysed using logistic regression, adjusting for demographic, socioeconomic, health behaviour and health variables. Financial barriers to access to prescription items were measured by the following question: In the past 12 months, have there been any times when a doctor gave you a prescription, but you didnt collect one or more of these items because you could not afford the cost?.. Results The odds of deferring buying a prescription at least once during the preceding 12 months because they could not afford the cost of the prescription were greater for Māori and Pacific people than for NZ Europeans (OR 2.98, 95% CI 2.56 to 3.47 vs OR 3.52, 95% CI 2.85 to 4.35). Adjusting for potential ...

This nationally representative serial cross-sectional analysis from 2001 to 2010 found a statistically significant decline in the prescription of codeine to children during emergency department visits in the United States. However, a substantial number of children are still being prescribed codeine, ranging from 558 805 to 876 729 prescriptions per year.. Changes in overall opioid prescribing did not explain the decline seen in codeine prescribing; we found no statistically significant change in the rate of opioid prescription and we did not observe an attenuation of the year effect on codeine prescription in our sensitivity analysis incorporating opioid prescription. We also examined the rate of codeine prescriptions to children who had injuries and found no statistically significant changes over the study interval.. We found several patient and provider characteristics predictive of codeine use, suggesting potential foci for interventions to decrease codeine prescribing. Children ages 8 to 12 ...
Statistics show a large increase in these prescriptions being filled according to my article…In 2000, American retail pharmacies dispensed 174 million prescriptions for opiates; by 2009 that figure had climbed to 257 million, an increase of 48 per cent in less than a decade.... (Turner). That is a very dramatic increase for just one decade in time. With the ease of access to this medication being easier to obtain than ever before the market to illegally obtain these drugs is increasing as well. In the article Many People Are Addicted to Drugs That Were Prescribed for Them in the Past the fact the market to obtain drugs illegally is increasing is supported by this quote Last year, 63 per cent of people on prescription drugs strayed from doctor s orders or sought out pills that weren t intended for them at all(Turner). This statistic shows that a majority of people are able to obtain these prescription medications without the actual prescription thus feeding addiction or recreational ...
The UK government has revealed that the cost of a prescription in England will rise to £7.10.. Public health minister Dawn Primarolo announced that the 25p increase will come into effect on 1 April.. The move comes just over a week after a report compiled by Citizens Advice revealed that as many as 800,000 people in England failed to collect a prescription in 2007 because of the cost.. The situation in England is in marked contrast to that in Scotland and Wales.. Welsh patients get free prescriptions, while those in Scotland will see their prescription charges fall to £5 in April, before they eventually become free in 2011.. Ms Primarolo said that the latest increase is well below the rate of inflation, and it is the 10th consecutive year that the rise has been held below or around that level.. She said: In England, 88% of prescription items are free of charge thanks to our extensive exemption arrangements.. Prescription charges are expected to raise £435m in the next financial year - ...
