  1. (Rising PY2): Watched this podcast a week ago and noticed a patient getting a prescription filled for a suspected H. pylori infection. (Clarithromycin + Metronidazole + PPI therapy x14days) noticed they were on phenytoin and remembered this podcast and immediately made sure the order was stopped. Called the prescriber with a new recommended regimen and started them on that instead. Really think this podcast helped stop a case of phenytoin toxicity, also got to switch their atorvastatin 80 -> crestor 20 while I was at it since that also interacted with the phenytoin. Crazy stuff but this podcast is fantastic for my morning commute to rotation! Keep it up!
