comments re generics?
Shelley Ungrin
when does the effect of Foquest tend to drop off. any trials comparing foquest to concerta to recommend?
Shelley Ungrin
how can we address alberta drug coverage only of generics for those of low socio-economic status?!
Rachel Talavlikar
is the next talk starting on DM meds?
Blair Hicken
I am waiting for the DM Meds talk too.
Diane Simpson
So foquest is new so less idea how it plays out clinically. Most LA stimulants show longer duration in studies than clinical practice. So for example by Fenton has a reported duration of 10 to 12 hours but in clinical practice is more like 8 to 9 hours. Via Vance has reported efficacy for 13 to 14 hours but in clinical practice is closer to 10 to 12 for foquest data suggest duration of 16 hours.
Diane Simpson
im anticipating clinical effect might be 13-15 hours
Diane Simpson
For cost, vyvanse is on formulary so covered better except not all plans cover the 10 mg strength. Jansen has a compassionate program for concerta as well. Feel free to email me other questions at dan.ross@shaw.ca and I'll try to help! Dr. Ross
Beverly Ang
how far in advance prior to an elective surgery do you hold SGLT2 inhibitors? 2 or 3 days, based on their half lives, or morning of procedure? (keeping in mind that we don't want their sugars to be too high prior to surgery)
Norman Hechtenthal
why am I hearing the adhd speaker while the vaping talk is on; does anyone else
Diane Simpson
Did you close any other open windows? If not, I'll ask AV for you.
Norman Hechtenthal
I logged out, then logged back in and its working well now; thanks
Diane Simpson
Perfect, thanks. Sorry for the technical issues.
Dianne Corbett
Has anyone come across anything re: juuling cessation? If it is the equivalent of 1-2 PPD, are there any recommendations with respect to nicotine replacement therapy?
Shelley Ungrin
how long after treatment for prostatis should the PSA return to baseline - or at what point should we get worried if it remains elevated?
Shelley Ungrin
what is the incidence of Lynch's syndrome in aggressive prostate cancer?
Diane Simpson
Dr gotto says the PSA can remain elevated up to 6months after. He would repeat psa in 6 weeks and then 3 months if still elevated
Andrea Wong
when to start PSA ? 40 yo,
Andrea Wong
different PSA target for each decade of life? e.g. 5 at 50, 6 at 60 etc??
Diane Simpson
He says the incidence would be low
