How much of our prescribing has a beneficial effect?

Comment

And how many gps are Aware that SSRIs cause seizures? Or that we should really be doing ecgs looking for long qt before prescribing many drugs, or that we should be checking acb calc to check The anticholinergic burden when prescribing unlikely drugs like furosemide and ranitidine and cetirizine. Prescribing should not be undertaken lightly, and we sadly do exactly that.
