FSRH | Ella-One and new drugs interacting with contraceptives

2nd April 2013 by Louise Hudman

FSRH has released two guidelines this month.

The first guideline is about Ella-One, the emergency contraceptive. They now advise that women who are breast-feeding should not feed their babies for 5 days after it’s use as significant levels are found in breast milk. Women should be encouraged to express and discard the milk so that their supplies don’t dry up.

The second guideline is about new anti-epileptic drugs (Perampanel and Eslicarbazepine acetate).

"I was introduced to the local locum chambers several months ago when I made a career move from partnership. I now combine salaried and locum roles. The chambers provides helpful support, leadership, advice and governance and reduces professional isolation. This combination of support reassures me and helps me provide safe and consistent care to patients within the community . There is a useful, innovative online portal - LocumDeck - which helps me access local work and which has efficient systems for reconciliation of finance including pensions. I would highly recommend joining a locum chambers for any GPs starting out in the locum world ."
