FYI: A clarification 🧵on a misleading new @medicarepayment chart of brand-name drugs in #Medicare Part D.

Many have misunderstood these data & misrepresented the findings, which say nothing about net drug prices.

Read on for my explanation of what’s really going on.

Background: MedPAC seemed to show that in Part D, brand-name drug prices “net of rebates” grew by 7.5% per year from 2010 to 2020

But this chart is not what it appears to be…

Summary: Contrary to some claims, we can't conclude anything about net prices from the chart above.

In fact, Medicare Part D's "net brand-name drug prices" (as defined by MedPAC) can be increasing, while net prices received by manufacturers can be decreasing.

Here's why.

"Find your passion & do it for a living"

Excellent advice, only problem is that it reminds people to narrow down their passion to a marketable skill & focus on that🤦‍♂️

Not so for 𝗚𝗮𝗻𝗴𝗮𝗱𝗶 𝗠𝗮𝗱𝗵𝘂𝗸𝗮𝗿 𝗥𝗲𝗱𝗱𝘆

According to the #pharmacy council @OfficialSAPC over 90 #pharmacies have been destroyed and looted beyond revival, with KZN being the hardest hit. @SECTION27news @HealthZA @kznhealth @molelekwa98
Among the looted items are #COVID19 #vaccines and scheduled medicines, which when used without proper pharmacist counselling on storage and dosage may result in harm to one’s health. @CovidCommsSA @CovidSupportSA @HastSig @PHMSA1 @CovidCoalition @MSF_southafrica @RHAPnews
The @OfficialSAPC urge those who looted these #medicines to not use them or give to others but rather return them to their nearest pharmacy for proper disposal. We caution the public to only source medicines from legitimate health establishments such as pharmacies.

PSA: #Pharmacists are doing everything possible to accommodate ppl with the vaccinations. They get a limited supply of mRNA vaccines (100/wk of Moderna & 150/wk of Pfìzer) & cannot meet demand without more supply from govt. Pharmacies get about 12% of overall prov supply /1
#Pharmacists, like the public, are dealing with constant changes in eligibility criteria & managing ⬆️ in demand without corresponding ⬆️ in supply. Please be patient & understanding. Pharmacy can do more vaccinations with more supply & want to continue stepping up to help. /2
Use online booking of a pharmacy & visit:… to find a participating #pharmacy. Starting Mon you can get a 2nd dose of AZ-AZ or AZ-PorM at 8 wks & many ppl qualify for an mRNA-mRNA at the 4 wk mark. Guidance is changing as more data becomes available. /3

The banking sector, in India, has been under stress for several years now.

Both the NBFCs and banking institutions (predominantly, public sector banks) have seen substantial deterioration in their asset quality.

.@headsUPmigraine spoke w/ a rural #PCP hounded out of the profession by relentless pressure to stop rxing #opioids. She was the only PCP in +100 miles willing to accept patients on opioid therapy. Most were over 70. 2018 #AMA statement shows many share her frustration. >thread
In 2018, #AMA passed a resolution against “misapplication” of the CDC Guideline by “pharmacists, health insurers, pharmacy benefit managers, legislatures, & governmental & private regulatory bodies in ways that prevent or limit patients’ medical access to #opioid analgesia.” 2/
#AMA: "physicians should not be subject to professional discipline, loss of board certification, loss of clinical privileges, criminal prosecution, civil liability, or other penalties or practice limitations solely for prescribing #opioids" above CDC's recommended dose. 3/

Is there any other class of medications that are routinely reduced by a #pharmacy/ #pbm? It just baffles me how discriminatory policies that put barriers in place are allowed to continue. How do Mds feel about being second-guessed constantly by these companies? #DEACenteredCare
It makes sense for a #PharmD to call an MD for a script that THEY (using the years of schooling and clinical judgment that results) deem questionable. What doesn’t make sense is mandating this and using it as an excuse to deny patients their RXs. It’s cruel.
Also, what you don’t see here is once the PA is sent in, it will automatically be rejected. And when the second one is sent, that one will also be rejected. They will give different reasons each time. The process starts all over again when the appeal to the actual ins. co begins.

I took many pictures at Bolsa Chica this afternoon including many of terns diving for food and a fire that erupted a few minutes after our group left the environs of a WWII gunnery emplacement. Until I get to that part of the queue, you are stuck with various experiments.
I am very fond of #DoctorWho, so I have a small selection of action figures and a TARDIS. Attempts to photograph my tiny collection haven't given me results that I like until I use one of the #sfx filters installed in my Nikon Coolpix W150.

Made a silly mistake today. A new pt was being discharged with palliative meds. Completely missed that the buprenorphine (butrans) directions were incorrect. Had been Rxed as every 3 days, rather than every 7. Wouldn’t have caused harm, but not right
I really beat myself about mistakes (I think it’s the nature of the job). So wanted to tweet it out to try and help. I think it happened for lots of different reasons, as is also the nature of errors. 1) there were other errors with the discharge (and inpt chart) which I spotted
Haloperidol has been prescribed without a frequency. On the inpatient side some wacky oramorph prescribing had happened. And when the real CD prescription actually arrived the doctor had asked for 9 of the butrans patches, which caught my eye more than the directions. I had

OK! As promised, here’s my very first #Tweetorial on #ketamine. It comes to you in 6 parts:
1 Mechanism
2 Intermittent bolus dosing
3 Procedural sedation
4 Low dose IV infusion
5 High dose IV infusion
6 Contraindications/warnings
#medtwitter #pharmacy #FOAMed #FOAMcc
Because I’m a hospital pharmacist, we’re going to focus on IV ketamine. Ketamine has other modes of administration (looking at you nasal-spray-for-depression) so feel free to add your own experiences below!
When an injury occurs, the dorsal horn releases glutamate which binds to the NMDA receptor. In some patients, this signals a cascade which eventually leads to the nervous system being stuck in a state of “high reactivity."

Pharmacy education post***

Why are the benzodiazepines Lorazapem, Oxazepam, and Temazepam recommended in the elderly?

Benzodiazepines are metabolized either through Phase 1 or Phase 2 metabolism
Phase 1 metabolism includes for example oxidation or reduction and turns the parent molecule into a more polar compound and eventual inactivation of the drug. Phase 1 metabolism involves the enzymes CYP2C19 and CYP3A4 and are responsible for benzos that undergo Phase 1..
Phase 2 metabolism involves conjugation of charged compounds and makes it more water soluble facilitating it into the bile or urine. So Phase 1 metabolism tends to decrease in the elderly and Phase 2 metabolism is for the most part preserved..

So yesterday we may have saved a life in the local community pharmacy yesterday.

It was an extremely busy afternoon in the normally quiet pharmacy. I was checking nomad trays in the back breaking off every 5 minutes to check waiting prescriptions.
Whilst in the checking room, my counter assistant approached me asking if I could see this patient as she was a little unsure as to what to do. The patient had mentioned to her that they had been suffering from anxiety and wished to buy something for it.

Very interesting! 👉 Team found (in mice) that #fever alters surface proteins (integrins) on #immune cells such as lymphocytes + macrophages ☝️ These changes allow such cells to better travel via #blood vessels to reach sites of infection.
And yet, if you walk into a USA #pharmacy, most medications for flu, colds, inflammation, injuries etc deliberately “knock down” #fever to temporarily palliate symptoms 👉 How do such #medications then impact long-term immunity, pathogen persistence and #microbiome health??
This same trend (medications that treat the #immune response as an “enemy” vs. an “ally”) are also “standard of care” for chronic disease 👉 But as such “#autoimmune”/inflammatory conditions are increasingly tied to #microbiome dysbiosis does that paradigm still make sense??

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their day jobs properly & decided to take the law into their own hands. It started as a small cover up 12 years ago but has turned into British State Persecution.

My company was raided. It should have been a straightforward matter. But the #MetPolice & #LBRUT forgot to seize my computer & came back to do a 2nd raid. The search warrant didn't permit a second entry, however, #LBRUT entered unlawfully

#Guardian #Telegraph #DailyMail #GMB #UK
Complaints were then made to my MP #VinceCable. He liaised with the #Metpolice & #LBRUT. And then weeks later, the search warrant was completely changed & was passed off as the search warrant executed on the day of the raids.
