    09.01 Cinacalcet  Cinacalcet is a specialist drug licensed for:
    1. Secondary hyperparathyroidism in patients with end stage renal disease on dialysis -
    NICE have issued clear guidance on its use for this indication with specific response to treatment required for continuation. NICE criteria state: Cinacalcet is not generally recommended for treating people on dialysis who have hyperparathyroidism because of their kidney disease. However, it is recommended for people on dialysis who:
    • have very high levels of parathyroid hormone in their blood that can't be lowered by other treatments, and
    • cannot have an operation to remove the parathyroid glands (a parathyroidectomy), because of the risks involved


    2. Hypercalcaemia of primary hyperparathyroidism in patients where parathyroidectomy is inappropriate and for the treatment of hypercalcaemia in parathyroid carcinoma

    Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust >> Formulary Item tablets - to be initiated by Consultant ONLY

    parathyroidectomy is inappropriate and for the treatment of hypercalcaemia in

    - Drops are easier and more pleasant to use than ointment. However, ointments are useful for prolonged action over longer periods, such as through the night.
    - To minimise cross contamination, one bottle per eye is used for in-patients. For out- patients and on discharge, one bottle for both eyes is supplied.
    - Patients can exhibit systemic effects from eye drops which have been absorbed systemically through the conjunctiva or nasal mucosa.
    - More than one drop is unnecessary as the excess is flushed away.

    10.01.01 Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs - INFORMATION  Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust Formulary Information

    Although the differences in anti-inflammatory activity between different NSAIDs are small, there is considerable variation in individual patient response to each. About 60% of patients will respond to any NSAID with an analgesic response usually apparent within a week and an anti-inflammatory response within three weeks. Those who do not respond to one NSAID may well respond to another. The main difference between NSAIDs is in the incidence and type of side effects.

    For short-term oral use in adults, ibuprofen or naproxen should be used as first choice as diclofenac has significantly increased cardiotoxic side-effects at equipotent doses. Diclofenac is now contraindicated in patients with established:
    - ischaemic heart disease
    - peripheral arterial disease
    - cerebrovascular disease
    - congestive heart failure (New York Heart Association [NYHA] classification II–IV)

    The following schema for prescribing NSAIDs should be followed:

    - Promotion of non-NSAID pain relief options wherever appropriate
    - Prescription of Ibuprofen (1200mg per day or less) as first choice oral NSAID wherever possible
    - Prescription of naproxen (up to 1000mg per day) as second choice oral agent in exceptional circumstances because of other organ toxicity
    - Ibuprofen and naproxen are not available in all formulations and so rectal, injectable and dispersible formulations of diclofenac will still be available
    - Other normal cautions about NSAID use in particular risk patients should be observed e.g. renal impairment where ibuprofen is much less problematic than naproxen

    In osteoarthritis, there is only a minor inflammatory component, and paracetamol (4g daily) has been shown to be effective in many patients. NSAIDs should only be used when there is an inflammatory flare up.
