Episode 126: Questions from near and far and answers from way out – Part II

In episode 126, James and Mike discuss how to do a drugectomy and why one needs to consider evidence, efficacy, side effects, cost, patient preference and that as clinicians we need to do many “n of 1” trials. We then discuss the concerns around dabigatran and what to do about bleeding on this agent and why the FDA made the 150 mg dose the chosen one. We also provide commentary on how long we need to give antibiotics and if you really need to take them until they are “all gone”. At the end we advise listeners to only listen to the podcasts until they feel better and then stop before they get any side effects like annoyance or frustration.

Show notes
