Say Goodbye to Wrinkles With CO2

Friday, February 15th, 2008

(Ivanhoe Newswire) — Carbon dioxide gets a lot flack. It’s a culprit responsible for the growing hole in our ozone layer, leading to skin cancer, climate change and global warming. But CO2 has a surprising new role: reducing wrinkles and clearing up acne scars!

Trials of a new carbon dioxide-based fractional laser are underway at two medical centers in the United States. The laser — recently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration — is designed to treat facial wrinkles and acne scarring, alleviating dark pigmentation, and other conditions that the centers are investigating before making the laser widely available.

New Methadone Restrictions Announced

Thursday, December 13th, 2007

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) announced this week that U.S. pharmaceutical companies have voluntarily agreed to restrict access to larger-dose methadone tablets beginning on Jan. 1, 2008.

The 40-mg methadone hydrochloride tablets will only be distributed to hospitals and authorized opiate addiction and detoxification facilities, the DEA announced. The move was intended to curb the rising number of methadone overdoses and illegal diversion of the drug.

“The 5 mg and 10 mg formulations indicated for the treatment of pain will continue to be available to all authorized registrants, including retail pharmacies,” according to the agency. “The 40 mg strength is not FDA approved for use in the management of pain. Thus, the distribution and availability of the 40 mg formulation will be limited to registrants in only those settings using the 40 mg formulation for the appropriate indication” – namely methadone maintenance for opiate addicts.

Migraine Drug Topamax Cuts Drinking, Study Finds

Thursday, October 11th, 2007

Alcoholics given the drug Topamax — more commonly used to treat migraine headaches — were able to cut down their drinking as part of a treatment program but without needing detoxification, according to researchers.

The Associated Press reported Oct. 9 that researchers tracked 371 heavy drinkers for 14 weeks and found that 15 percent of those receiving Topamax had quit drinking for at least seven weeks, compared to 3 percent of patients not receiving the drug. The Topamax group also was more likely to cut back on drinking than the control group.

“The size of the treatment effect is larger than in most of the other medications we’ve seen,” said Mark Willenbring of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. “And all the drinking variables changed in the right direction.”

‘Kitty Dukakis Treatment Center’ to Open

Friday, September 21st, 2007

A new addiction treatment center named for former Massachusetts first lady Kitty Dukakis will open at the Lemuel Shattuck Hospital in Jamaica Plain, Mass., the Boston Globe reported Sept. 30.

The wife of former governor and presidential candidate Mike Dukakis, Kitty went public with her personal story of addiction to alcohol and prescription drugs in 1990, as well as her experience with depression. She also founded the Friends of the Shattuck Shelter, now called hopeFound, a homeless shelter for men and women.

The Kitty Dukakis Treatment Center for Women has 32 beds and will serve post-detox patients in the early stages of recovery. The 28-day program will open in January and is expected to treat 300 women annually. Addiction, HIV, and post-traumatic stress counseling will be provided.

Some Colleges Take Tougher Line on Underage Drinking, Including Calls Home

Thursday, September 20th, 2007

The University of Wisconsin is among a handful of colleges and universities that not only confront students about underage drinking reports from campus police but also contact offenders’ parents when their college-age kids are caught drunk in public, the New York Times reported Sept. 12.

At Wisconsin, any student taken to a detoxification facility faces an interview with a college dean and a call to their parents from the school when they sober up. But for underage drinkers, a call home can be triggered by a simple alcohol summons, not just detox.

That’s a big change for a school with a long history of alcohol tolerance, where in the 1970s students could buy beer at the university snack bar with their meal cards and college buses were equipped with kegs for an annual German pre-Lent festival.
