Topiramate and Adderall Reduce Cocaine Use
"We often say that single positive studies need replication and here comes one in two thousand, twelve randomized trial found that the combination of toe. Pyramid and adderall ex SAR worked better than placebo at helping people with frequent cocaine. You stay sober. This new study sought to replicate that although it was by the same research group is the original one Columbia's New York state psychiatric. Institute. The. New Edition is a larger study that looked at one hundred and twenty seven patients over three months. It was a double blind randomized placebo controlled trial that tested the combination of adderall Exeter with. Toe Pyramid, likely earlier study the treatment worked on primary measure. How many patients stayed sober for at least three weeks none achieved that on the placebo but fourteen percent did on the treatment. They were careful and conservative cardiovascular measures, and actually one in five patients had to stop the treatment due to elevated blood pressure pulse during the study. Otherwise, the treatment was well tolerated, which begs the question why not just use toe, pyramid on its own Toe Pyramid does have promising pilot studies on its own for cocaine use as does adderall on its own though that particular adderall study was in people with Adhd who used cocaine but clinically. Less risky of the to pyramid before considering the combination and it would be nice to see a study with three arms that could test out whether Toe pyramid alone is just as effective as the combination in this study. Toe. Pyramid was tight traded over six weeks to a maximum of one hundred milligrams twice a day an adderall ex SAR was titrate over two weeks to a Max of sixty milligrams per day. The authors suggested that the cardiovascular risks might have been lessened if adderall was tight traded more slowly.
Changes in thinking about blood pressure
"Or high blood pressure is a common condition. It's the most common reason that adults visit their doctor's office. There is considerable debate about what constitutes normal blood pressure, and depending on whose data is cited roughly half the people with high blood pressure. Do not have adequate blood pressure control, but in part this is because in 2017, the American Heart Association lowered the threshold for. For what defines hypertension from one forty over ninety to one thirty over eighty before the new definition, thirty percent of Americans had high blood pressure after the new definition, the number jumped to forty six percent, the same population of people, just a new definition of what constitutes the disease. This is an additional thirty. One Million Americans labeled as diseased for a total of one hundred and three million Americans with high blood pressure. It used to be that the ideal blood pressure was simply the average of all adult blood pressure's, but then came autopsy studies of soldiers who died in the Korean War those revealed that about two-thirds of these young Americans already had early signs of heart disease. Then the Framingham study revealed that there was an association between elevated blood pressure and heart disease, and then came studies showing that if you lowered blood pressure, you also lowered the risk of heart disease, and that sort of where we are today. Hypertension is more common in older people compare to younger people, which brings me to an interesting article published in Jama. The so-called optimize study included only people older than eighty who were being treated for high blood pressure with at least two different medications. We know that older people who take more than one blood, pressure, medicine, or prone to dizziness and falls and other side effects, so do these people really need this cocktail of different high blood pressure pills, so these researchers asked when people stopped taking one blood pressure medicine did they have dangerous increases in blood pressure? Half of the group had one medication de prescribed in other words discontinued the other continued on with their usual medications. They were followed for about three months for those who had one medication stopped. It turned out that eighty six percent of the patients blood pressure remained under control now in contrast, eighty eight percent of people who had no changes made to their blood pressure also had their blood pressure under control, so there really was no difference between the two groups. The study lasted only three months, which is too short to see if the changes in the drugs had any impact on the length of life or the quality of life, but reducing unnecessary, second or third blood pressure medications may both decrease dangerous side effects, which can lead to decrease, falls and fractures and head injuries and reduce the cost of medications for the elderly.

"Even sort of. Stage, one so slightly elevated blood pressure that I think many physicians until recently, probably just weren't thinking of as a significant of problem. But once you do start looking at that Mike, rob Yamin in that system. See as a non nephrologist we get a little bit of a window of insight in to your world. And there are a lot of people walking around a staggering amount of people walking around who on the surface just based on their creatine. Look pretty normal, but a slightly deeper look says, no, actually they're not normal. They are. They are compromised and it won't be clinically relevant for thirty or forty years. But that's going to be relevant. The thing is that there are no symptoms. So I see people all the time with diseases like I Jane fried us, which is the most common sort of primary kidney disease in the world, and they will not know it and they will have lost sorta like ninety five percent of kidney function, by the time I see them just because they never knew they had a problem because they never checked it.

Well, let's talk about this thing, called insulin resistance, because there's too broad broad topics. I want to explore with you today, and I can see no better way to approach them than in this order. Let's start with the problem statement. And then let's start to talk about the treatment. So I will confess at the outset Jason that as it's been nine or ten years, that I've thought about this problem, I still have a hard time explaining to somebody certainly, if I only have the derision of an elevator ride, what insulin resistance is because I get tempted to get into, well, it means this thing in this type of tissue..
Blood pressure medication recall expands yet again
"Go Dr John Phillips joins us, Dr Philipson interventional cardiologists with Ohio health wanted to reach out this morning, Dr because we're seeing a few blood pressure. Medication recalls seen it in a couple of places. I'm just curious with all the talk about blood pressure. Let's start at the beginning. Some new guidelines hit us maybe a month or two ago. Tell me what you know about that as the start. Sure Joel thanks for having me obsolete them. You know blood pressure is is a problem for folks, and it can cause increased cardiovascular events, and so based on some new guidelines from the American college of cardiology and the American Heart Association, we're working towards reducing folks risk by better controlling their blood pressures to certain ranges, depending on age and cardiovascular risk, right? So let's say forty-five-year-old guy, maybe a little pudgy around the middle where should his blood pressure? Be. Well, ideally, we'd like a blood pressures for everybody, you know, less than the top number less than one twenty in the bottom number less than eighty we have mechanisms or ability to calculate risk based on age, diabetes, some other risk factors. But ideally, you know, a good number to think about is one twenty over eighty unfortunately, a good portion of Americans upwards, so one thirds may have elevated blood pressure. So we've got a lot of medications that we can use to help treat folks. But oftentimes we recommend changes in lifestyle. Exercising more eating a little bit healthier and staying away from alcohol products. Yeah. And when when you talk about that, I mean, you're a doctor. This is what you do d- think it's that we're more sedentary now, or is it that we're just eating so much processed food especially with salts. I think it's a combination of both. You know, it's a lot easier to get in the car and drive someplace as opposed to getting on the bike. And and you know, riding there to pick up something everybody should be out exercising in watching what they eat. It's also more expensive to eat, fresher foods. And so that may be, you know, cost prohibitive for some people but process would certainly play a role because they do have a large amount of sodium in them are there. I mean, we know salt is usually a bad guy being done interior. Are there any magic foods? I mean magic might be a little strong. But like if you want to be heart healthy, here's the one or two things you should eat with great regularity. Well, I mean, we talk about museum what's called the Mediterranean type diet. So when you're looking at what proteins you're gonna take in we recommend more fish as opposed to red meat with respect to you know, being cognizant of some of the saturated fats that you take in lower carbohydrate numbers more legumes and beans as opposed to you know, starches. No, magic foods. Unfortunately, no magic pill for us to lose weight, and you know, to become healthy. It's hard work and exercise. But I mean, isn't isn't oatmeal pretty good for me, if I'm trying to keep my blood pressure down and keep the cholesterol out. Yeah. That's a great source of nutrients, and I think habitable oatmeal is better than having a egg mcmuffin. I got some people like the taste of that mcmuffin, though, doc. They are they are. Indeed. Now, the order of the day is this recall a blood pressure medications. And I even saw one report I think that there is some cancer concerns that these might actually kick off cancer. What do you know about the the recalls? Yes. So there are a class of medication called certain that have been recalled based on the manufacturers and in different combinations. And there's another medication called him loping that was voluntary recall voluntarily recalled as well. So these medications are typically generic, and they're manufactured by different companies. And and unfortunately, a lot of the manufacturing is outsourced in. So upwards of forty percent of medications that are engineered in the US are manufactured elsewhere. And the FDA had noted some contaminants in some of these medications, basically just some bribe byproducts of the industrial processing and three of them are believed to cause cancer in humans one of them as. Actually used rocket fuel. And so that set off some alarms and these medications or these lots were voluntarily recalled. I got you. So this is the kind of thing that if I haven't maybe made an inquiry should absolutely do it if I'm using one of these or Modine, correct? Yeah. Val, certain Losada, nervous art, and then amyloid opinion, I would recommend calling your physician or your your pharmacist to see if any of those agents are manufactured by the companies that recalled them based on recommendations from the FDA. It seems like I mean, the car industry is really good about reaching out to us. If we have a car that needs a fix they make they send you the letter or whatever is that not happening with this medicine recall. You know, again about sixty million prescriptions were written for low certain in two thousand sixteen. So there's a lot of folks on these medications, again, not all of them were made by the manufacturers who are recalling them. There are websites. You can go to the FDA. And there's a website that you can you can. Look up and see if the medication you're on is manufactured by one of these. Would it be a lot number? It would just be that specific medication and a certain timeframe. Yeah. The problem is there's different dosing combinations with other medications. So probably easiest thing to do is if you are on one of these medications, call your pharmacy. Can they can let you know, what company makes it, absolutely brilliant? So with the the different, you know, take on what's high blood pressure in that Europe? Busier person these days are about the same. We're always busy. Unfortunately, cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of Americans. And so it's important to be proactive as opposed to reactive so exercise eat healthy. And you know, throw the cigarettes away in the McDonald's away, and you should be alright exercise

"Afraid to go on in women's health I'm so proud of the strides over the Last few decades that we've we've made in being able to, talk about issues that used to be more hush hush women were. Ashamed to talk about problems during childbirth or hormonal. Problems or anything like that so now. It's it's out in the open the. Doctors are here to talk to you, so in the last segment we were talking about contraceptives and how far that's come and I was asking you. Guys, I, mean I'm all for UD's I think, the technology's great just the the low maintenance you know for a busy woman who, doesn't want to think about a daily pill or whatever but I've been one of the women taking a pill for years I. Have no, problem, with, it, but one, of my. Questions for Dr Maura was I've I've taken a pill for so long is that to, my detriment is that something that I should. Be afraid of for long term health risks down the. Road well in regard to. That if your overall healthy you're. Not having any other. Reasonable contra indication of why you couldn't continue it and when I say like if if you're having? Other issues like elevated blood pressure or hypertension High blood pressure, and you're over the age of thirty five honestly being on a combined pill. May not be the best, route for you if you have a history of a blood clot Obviously being on. An estrogen form of a pill probably would not be a. Good option but if you're overall healthy honestly and you've had no problem with it. And liked it for such a long time there's no reason why shouldn't could be. Able to. Continue it keeping in mind that being on a combined pill has a lot. Of other benefits it actually can help. To decrease your risk of. Ovarian as well as enemy cancer that's fantastic it can help to decrease the amount of bleeding. You have with your cycle so ladies who have a heavier period it can also help ladies you have really bad cramping with their cycles on the. Medical term for that is dismissed Ariya but really it's just bad cramping also. For women, who have enemy, trio service, being on pills can also, help this hormonally manage some of their symptoms so there are a, lot of other health benefits in regards, to taking pills you know some may also. You, know think about what you know what would the risk be your breast. Cancer being on something hormonal like appel like that You know may have some affect long term, but again if you're generally in good. Health you have your screening all of those things you know and you have other health benefits from taking the path. Can't see why he can't continue that's that's good news now. Just add one more thing to that is you know we we we're talking about. The strides we've made one thing that people may not understand is that birth control. Pills have. Gotten so much better since the sixties when they first came out and what. Your mother or grandmother may have taken. Back in that generation is. Actually probably three times what we typically use for average pill does now and now they've come. Out with even some many dose wins so that they make your period even lighter even shorter even more regular which is really nice for some people. Some people can predict now the afternoon of the month it's gonna start and. And that, they have many, fewer side, effects enough war and so, that is a huge aspect for a lot of people and even, for premenstrual syndrome or They can be a huge help to controlling, those, moods that make occur with your cycles and so, just as, we talked about before with there can be many, reasons medical, reasons not just contraceptive reasons that. A pill, might be a good choice for, you and we talked about the importance to, of course, everyone understands hormones throughout your body affecting everything the way you feel the way you act. The way you think. So, tell me. Dr d'arret a little bit about, maybe someone, who's, feeling, a little offer a little. Blue and how if they're just honest with their doctor when they go in for their annual and said you know I'm just not feeling right I'm not myself or having thoughts that that are worrying me a little bit how that could be hormonally driven absolutely this is a huge aspect of what, we do at our practice and we do take pride and trying to listen to our patients and and, hear what's, going on and, it's so important as a patient for. You to communicate those things to the doctor because otherwise, we won't know, what's going on and and we might think hey even if. You've been on something for a while like say you've been on the same pill for five years But but your body may have. Changed you may have gone from being a teenager to mid twenties or thirties. To forty, s and so something changed in another brand may do better for you different. Dose and they're actually about thirty or, forty with, the Allah generics out there right pills available and so a good good clinician that's going to be able to. Check your symptoms and see we actually have a symptom checklist of about fifteen things we have you check off and a lot of patients are coming in, in the forties and they're getting closer to menopause, it may, not be quite enough and. So they want their hormones check to and they think something's just not right and so we we will do. A. Full evaluation and we'd actually do specifically asked about whole range of. Symptoms to see what we can get at is the problem and from there I mean your your. Own best advocate embarrassed to speak to your doctor mentally you just don't feel like yourself like you said Dr d'arret something in your body may have changed even, though, all your doses of the medication and then the, same so, it's it just be aging hate to say it But I mean something as simple, as changing the, dose or the brand or whatever of the contract you're on that that makes a lot of things and then also. Considering that when you start these things everyone is different You can have different reactions to things in. A may not be the same as your friends members you know so. It you know you may have you may feel certain way about a specific pill that maybe your friend or family member was, doing just fine on it doesn't mean that that may not be the cause of your, issue so it's just really being able to have that conversation with your physician who's really. Listening to you or your provider in general and really being able to kind of, pinpoint what they may. Think is going on there even options that are Chewable and there's a, a birth control ring that has similar ingredients so the birth control pill so that, if you don't do well taking a. Pill you can do this the birth control ring is. Great for my patients who travel a lot and they're changing times ends and they were getting off. And then forget their pill and then they'd start spotting or something there's so many options and then and then some women that's. The next step into where they may need some hormone supplementation as they get close to menopause so how is that testing done that I would discover. What what hormones I need added or less of or, whatever we we We usually start with.
