Hi @LSBU. Remember when I emailed you 3 years ago about your new pharmacist lecturer? About how he repeatedly sexually harassed me? While at work and over text? No?

Well he's still employed by you, and you've finally put his photo up, so let me remind you 🧵

#MeToo Image
This is just a FRACTION of what he would say to me. A tiny sliver. I have over SIXTY PAGES of these screenshots. /2 ImageImageImageImage
And before you tell me that I should have said 'no' or 'stop it', I did /3 ImageImageImageImage

🧵 Reducing #PrescribingCascades ⬇️

1/ What are #Prescribing Cascades?

1⃣ A drug is prescribed 💊
2⃣ #AdverseEvent occurs but is misinterpreted as a new medical condition ⚠️
3⃣Another drug is prescribed for the drug-induced adverse event 💊💊 #MedEd Image
2/ Anticholinergics ➡️ cognitive dysfunction ➡️ drugs for #dementia

#Anticholinergic 💊 block acetylcholinergic neurotransmission in the brain, impairing cognition & memory

Can lead to new Rx or ↗️ acetylcholinesterase inhibitor doses #MedEd #FOAMed Image
3/ Drugs for #dementia ➡️ incontinence ➡️ anticholinergics

Conversely, AChE-I can cause urinary or fecal incontinence, that may "cascade" to prescription of an #anticholinergic

Jason definitely struck a nerve for many of the #PharmEd & #TwitteRx folks. This is something we’ve discussed quite a bit in Maryland, but it sounds like a larger @ASHPOfficial / @ACCP task force is needed. A few thoughts… (🧵1/10)
1st: I am very proud to be a #pharmacist & love mentoring pharmacy students & residents on research projects every year…but…the large majority of PharmD grads *do not* have the knowledge/skills to *lead* a research project. We have to acknowledge that. (2/10)
2nd: (Trigger Warning ⚠️) A decent number of faculty members & clinicians are not strong research mentors. Even a faculty member with a PhD can struggle mentoring residents, because mentoring is a skill that needs development - but we just expect it as a given. (3/10)

🚨 I'm getting reports from pharmacists across #Texas -they are being directed to not fill prescriptions for misoprostol, mifepristone, or methotrexate until they verify that the meds are not for induced #abortion.
#SB4 is harmful to ALL of us, even w/ #SB8 still in effect 1/
🚨 This is a classic solution in search of a problem. *NO ONE* prescribes meds for #abortion in #Texas. We dispense or administer all meds directly to the patient. THE ONLY people that need these drugs in a pharmacy either have a miscarriage, cancer, or autoimmune disease 2/
🚨 Let that sink in. Anti-abortion laws harm *all of us*. I'm urging local and national journalists to start interrogating pharmacies in #Texas about this practice. It's not only ethically bankrupt and discriminatory - it literally serves no purpose. 3/

🚨 #BestOf2021 🚨

It’s simple. Here are my favorite releases. I’ve broken out by sub-genre and kept it to the cream of the crop. This is Top Gun. Best of the best.



Those releases that don’t neatly fit a category are often the most interesting. #Mehenet #FuegoEterno #Dakhma #Empyrium #Baazlvaat

Baazlvaat was clearly the discovery of the year. Super raw production with some ingenious songwriting spanning styles


All flavors of doom here from Stoner to Sabbathian. #Wheel & #Monolord bringing actual songs with concrete riffs, #MethadoneSkies with post rock psych, and #Wedge & #IndicaBlues stoning the place up. Indica brought together all the above thru a desert filter

providers caught up in disciplinary action viewed as “good doctors” practicing within accepted norms of patient care.

physicians never charged with any crimes but could not recover after their practice had
been shut down, records confiscated, or had poor publicity in the media🤯
“They were coming in and busting a lot of docs and then making it so… that we didn't need that law to be

Every pharmacist when a doctor doesn't write the controlled drug prescription correctly
When the service lead pharmacist tries to understand why senior pharmacists wont use their independent prescribing but more junior ones will !

“QAnon is ...a self-sustaining environment of #disinformation & #misinformation...

.. QAnon hijacks the architecture of social media..

..By controlling acceptable forms of information, QAnon traps its members in a downward spiral of radicalization.”…
“As P.W. Singer and Emerson Brooking describe in.. book Likewar: The Weaponization of #SocialMedia, this phenomenon of “junk” or “fake news” is not new. In 2016, a similar, but related, conspiracy known as “Pizzagate” resulted in a shooting at a DC area pizza parlor.” #SoMe
Above is not limited to academic articles

There has been an increase in #antiAsianhate crimes
targeting of #GOTV by minorities
including this attempt to intimidate me for my GOTV, by armed right wing

There was the #Nashvillebombing (with QAnon beliefs)

One of our local Universities received a grant to implement #OneRx. I find the actions that they encourage highly alarming & stigmatizing. 1) approach patient to discuss only partial fill on #opioid medication 2) provide naloxone (ok with this), 3) refer to MAT 1/ Image
My kids see a team of physicians who know their medical issues. Their issues are complex. I am not sure what I would do if a #pharmacist approached the kids to engage in discussion of only partially filling meds or referring to #MAT. It’s as though there is no understanding 2/
that most on #opioids have seriously tried other modalities of treatment. What will it take to have a balanced narrative instead of one completely #stigmatizing & #shaming 3/

#WORLD_ALZHEIMERS_DAY : Let’s Talk About Dementia

LADY : Pharm, I came back into the country few weeks ago & found out that my Grand Ma couldn't recognize me & some family members and she was abit aggressive & irritated too.

A Thread 👇
We took her to the hospital and she was diagnosed with a condition called SENILE DEMENTIA ( Alzheimer’s Disease).
So the physician prescribed some medications, which I came to get BUT can you EDUCATE me on the disease???

CHIEF PHARM : Sure Madam.

ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE is a progressive disease that causes the BRAIN CELLS to DEGENERATE & DIE leading to LOSS OF MEMORY and other important brain functions.

It CAN’T be CURED but can be MANAGED
It requires medical diagnosis & It can be a lifelong condition.

#MAMA : Pharm, I want to get these medications.👇
Lisinopril, Ibuprofen and Frusemide.

#PHARMACIST : Are you the one taking all these medications?

#MAMA : Yes Pharm. What's wrong?

#PHARMACIST : These medications can cause "TRIPLE WHAMMY EFFECT".

Let me Explain 👇

A Thread Image
👉 The concurrent use of an #ACE_Inhibitors or #ARBs (such as LisinoPRIL & candeSARTAN), a #DIURETIC (such as Frusemide ), plus an #NSAIDs (Ibuprofen, Diclofenac, Aspirin) when taken together, increases the RISK of precipitating #KIDNEY_FAILURE!

And elderly people over the age of 65 are more likely to develop kidney disease because as people age, so do their kidneys.

So taking such combination PLUS ur AGE will increase ur risk of developing impaired Renal function.

*I wrote a note to d Doctor to review d prescription*

"Don't worry, Don't worry, I know how to take it", that's how Lucy swallowed Mycoten PESSARY for 6 consecutive days & came back to tell us it didn't work.

Please always allow ur PHARMACIST to tell you how your medications are taken.

Leave no room for assumption.

#Disclaimers : Not all tablets are to be swallowed.

Some Tablets are inserted in the rectum (suppositories),
some are inserted in the vagina (suppositories & pessaries), some drugs are placed Under the tongue (Sublingual )

Most tablets are best taken with water,

some with food, milk.

Some are taken few minutes/hours after meal because food slows down the absorption of certain medications.

Some negatively interact with Multivitamins.

Some drugs are available as both oral tablets/capsules & suppositories such as Paracetamol,

Shared with permission.
The year: 2011. A young #Pharmacist, career-focussed, is part of a thriving business. She stands on her own two feet.

The encouragement & support from her parents is all she needs. They've always supported her. Nothing can shake her resolve. Can it?
One Saturday morning she rushes down the stairs to get ready for work.

The sound hits her first.

It’s guttural. Choking. Someone can’t breathe.

She’s bleary-eyed from the long workdays, 6 days a week.

She’s not complaining. It’s necessary

She steps into the bathroom & that’s where her brain tries to correlate the image with sounds.

‘Is she gargling? Is she choking?

What is her mum drinking out of a 2-litre bottle at 5am?

Why is the mouth frothy?

No answers avail themselves.

Remember the surprise #pharmacist #apprenticeship proposal? An FOI request was submitted to the IfATE to find out a few things.

The IfATE confirmed that the RPS was aware of the proposal and an individual it employed was party to exploratory discussions (though it should not be assumed that the person was acting as a representative of the employer).
The IfATE released the email chain in the attached image (the email on 17 May 2018 was sent to the RPS representative; the reply on 29 May was the representative’s response). Image
