Doctors say they have begun prescribing drugs to treat patients with shingled feet.
But doctors say the drugs are still struggling to catch on.
We’re really looking for other ways to address the patient population, Dr. Tariq Haidar told Al Jazeera.
We want to help patients by prescribing these medicines to treat the disease, but we’re not sure that that will work.
“The drug that Haidra is prescribing is called Sulfosuccinate, which is also used in allergy medications.
It is the second time this month that the British Medical Association (BMA) has spoken out against the drugs.
In March, the BMA said SulfOSuccinate was a “disease-promoting” drug that could cause serious side effects and harm patients with the disease.”
It’s a bit of a grey area to say whether it’s safe or not,” said Dr Andrew Walker, a member of the BPA’s Health Policy Committee.”
If it’s not safe, I don’t think we can prescribe it.
But if it’s causing a serious problem, I think it’s important for people to be aware of it.
“Walker said he was surprised that the BTA had yet to recommend its drug for use to treat shinglings.”
This is a disease-promotion drug, it’s been around for 20 years, it has been used for about five decades,” he said.”
In my experience, people don’t take it for the side effects.
They take it because it’s the best way to stop the bleeding and reduce the bleeding.
“Walker, a shingler himself, said that when he was first diagnosed with the illness, he was “dizzy” and “in shock”.
He had no idea what was going on.”
I was told that I was going to have to do something to stop bleeding and I didn’t really know what that was,” he recalled.”
So I just kept telling myself it was going be okay.
“Walker has since received treatment from a dermatologist and an ophthalmologist.”
The doctor has said it’s possible I’m going to be able to stop it, and I think that’s what has been reassuring,” he added.”
But it’s still very difficult to know exactly what is going on.
“Walker is currently working with a consultant to help him get better and is hopeful that he will be able get SulfoSuccinate to his patients in time for Christmas.
