      Omeprazole. There is the NICE guidance for pharmacist treatment of GORD.

      In general -
      the evidence base for its efficacy. Often lacking e.g zocor 10mg, chloramphenicol eye drops)

      Advertising
      As opposed to the new drugs being seen as an addition to the pharmacists armoury of treatments - direct to consumer advertising puts pressure on the pharmacist to respond to advertising and innapropriate requests.

      Regards

        Knew Zocor 10 was dodgy but is there really no real evidence for efficacy of Chloramphenicol? Never been told that and have always assumed that it's the mutts nuts for minor eye infections.

          Topical chloramphenicol was not effective for acute infective conjunctivitis in children -- Elizabeth Harkless 9 (1): 12 -- Evidence-Based Nursing
          CONCLUSION
          In children with acute infective conjunctivitis, topical chloramphenicol was not effective for inducing clinical cure.

          They confirm findings from previous outpatient-based secondary care studies that indicate that topical antibiotics are of limited efficacy in improving clinical outcomes for acute bacterial conjunctivitis.

            Thanks for the link Jeff.


            Nothing like this has ever been mentioned to me and it certainly wasn't intimated at when we started a PGD for chloramphenicol.
