Phenytoin and Meperedine

This combination of two old and nearly extinct drugs will be marketed for pain in patients with renal impairmment. We don’t know what the Brand name will be, but the tagline will be “Don’t be seized by the pain”

Disclaimer: In case you stumbled on this post without reading the intro, these drug combos are not real. If you didn’t get this joke, it is about normeperedine accumulating in renal failure and causing seizures and phenytoin being an anticonvulsant. Of course explaining this strips every shred of humor from this post 🙂
