A UKMI Q&A recently concluded that SSRI’s do increase GI bleeding risk. If an SSRI is re- quired in a patient at high risk of a GI bleed then the use of a gastro-protective agent could be considered. Studies have shown the use of acid suppressing drugs, e.g. PPIs, to be protective against GI bleeds in patients receiving single therapy SSRI or combined NSAID and SSRI treat- ment.MHRA guidance: Insulin degludec (Tresiba) is the first long-acting insulin to be available at a higher 200 units/mL. They state that the strength and dose must be included on prescriptions, and patients should be educated to always check the item dispensed is correct and seek medi- cal advice immediately if an incorrect dose is given. Insulin degludec is considerably more ex- pensive than insulin glargine, and is not currently on the BNSSG formulary, therefore you should not see any prescribing of this locally. Please let a member of the Medicines Manage- ment Team (MMT) know if you do get a request to prescribe.
