Two slimming supplement brands sold online found to contain banned substances

SINGAPORE —The Health Sciences Authority (HSA) has warned the public not to purchase or consume two brands of slimming pills sold online, after they were found to contain a banned substance and potent laxatives.

In a media release on Thursday (May 31), the HSA said the two products — Nuvitra and BeColi — were tested, and found to contain a banned substance called sibutramine. According to the authority, sibutramine was previously available as a prescription-only weight-loss drug. It was withdrawn from the Republic in 2010 because it was found to increase the risk of heart attack and strokes.

The Dangerous Game of Telephone in Hospitals

Christopher Johnson, MD, highlights the communication problem in the age of EHRs

Sometimes an interesting thing happens on patient rounds. Rounds are a traditional exercise in hospitals going back at least a century. In the old days, this meant the physician going from patient to patient. He (it was nearly always he back then) went over the patient's progress with the bedside nurse, examined the patient, reviewed pertinent test results, made an assessment, decided on a plan for the day, and gave orders to implement the plan.

Dear Rebecca, 

Many homeless women have fled domestic violence. For them, sleeping on the cold streets tonight is the better option. Domestic and family violence is the principal cause of homelessness for women and their children. This must stop.  You can help by hosting a White Ribbon Night on Friday 29 July. 

If you are looking for ideas, why not cook up a feast, have a movie marathon, or watch the footy, all in the comfort of your own home?

Antipsychotics Overprescribed in Intellectually Disabled? Liam Davenport

A substantial proportion of individuals with intellectual disabilities are prescribed antipsychotics in the absence of a diagnosis of severe mental illness ― a finding that raises concerns that these drugs are being used to control behavior in this patient population. 

In a study of more than 30,000 people with intellectual disabilities, more than 60% had received a prescription for antipsychotic drugs, of whom more than 70% had no record of severe mental illness.
