2021[edit source]

User:Ozzie10aaaa I think it is reasonable, especially for an easy to understand overview. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 15:41, 14 January 2021 (UTC)
ok, will leave(though per MEDRS....)--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 16:44, 14 January 2021 (UTC)
User:Ozzie10aaaa The orthobullets are written by orthopods. If a better source contradicts anything would suggest we replace with the better source. I would consider this like emedicine or webmd, okish but happy for better sources to replace. But no need to remove and leave with no source. Thoughts? Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 16:53, 14 January 2021 (UTC)
yes agree, will look for better source(should none be available, will then leave as is), Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 16:56, 14 January 2021 (UTC)
  • I've come across a good article by Hindawi, per this there not really predatory journals[3], should I use it?, Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 15:12, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
User:Ozzie10aaaa which article? Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 15:30, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
Gastritis I used ...Szefel, Jarosław; Kruszewski, Wiesław Janusz; Sobczak, Ewa (11 March 2015). "Factors Influencing the Eicosanoids Synthesis In Vivo". BioMed Research International. Retrieved 16 January 2021. CS1 maint: discouraged parameter (link)--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 15:52, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
User:Ozzie10aaaa Sure. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 16:12, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
Doc James ok, thank you--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 16:15, 16 January 2021 (UTC)
Feel free to replace User:Ozzie10aaaa... Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 16:39, 19 January 2021 (UTC)
good, thanks Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 16:41, 19 January 2021 (UTC)
  • I am sorry to hear about the loss of a colleague editor. I don't recall crossing their path but understand how it is when one has co-authored together. I hope I am helping with editing and not causing confusion. Let me know either of you what I can help with, otherwise I'll assume to just carry on. BTW...patella fracture was more interesting than I thought it would be. Please check the cost of Itraconazole in the States- what dose is being referred to? Whispyhistory (talk) 17:09, 28 January 2021 (UTC)
User:Whispyhistory thanks for all your help. Will looks. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 02:37, 29 January 2021 (UTC)
Okay have updated to 2021. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 02:42, 29 January 2021 (UTC)
I'll have a read through too if ok Ozzie10aaaa. Whispyhistory (talk) 22:32, 2 February 2021 (UTC)
Whispyhistory, thanks--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 23:10, 2 February 2021 (UTC)
  • Paracetamol#Cost am adding like this due to spacing problem, therefore using 'gallery' under text (and adding additional text)....--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 13:58, 3 February 2021 (UTC)
Thanks User:Ozzie10aaaa looks good. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 14:03, 3 February 2021 (UTC)
ok, Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 15:50, 15 February 2021 (UTC)
User:Ozzie10aaaa you see the import tool?[7] You use the second box with "include all templates" and "assign edits to local users" on and "copy all history revisions" off. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 15:52, 15 February 2021 (UTC)
Doc James yes thats what I did(see import log)--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 15:57, 15 February 2021 (UTC)
BTW Ive added it to our current list as it was not there[8]--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 15:34, 16 February 2021 (UTC)
User:Ozzie10aaaa I am only adding article to that list once the leads are a decent summary of the topic in question and thus ready to be translated. I keep a list of the articles I have yet to get to in my sandbox :-) Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 15:59, 16 February 2021 (UTC)
ok, Ill revert then, Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 16:02, 16 February 2021 (UTC)
I have that article on my list to work on. Currently working to improve all the leads for articles for which we have osmosis videos. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 16:29, 16 February 2021 (UTC)
  • login from Office depot/ my pc/ laptop still don't connect, Ozzie--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 19:14, 15 March 2021 (UTC)
encore!--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 17:58, 19 March 2021 (UTC)

Things are always a little complicated. Great to see you back.Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 18:37, 19 March 2021 (UTC)

Cost graph[edit source]

Doc James I'm done w/ "Cost/Prescription graph" [9] however Im going to go thru it again in case I missed something...one point I wanted to clarify, on some few occasions I have come across a graph that has no article here, so if it does in Wikipedia should I import the article for the graph?--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 16:00, 23 March 2021 (UTC)

User:Ozzie10aaaa sure lets import them all so we can add the graphs. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 00:57, 24 March 2021 (UTC)
ok--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 01:23, 24 March 2021 (UTC)


done[edit source]

Doc James have finished graphs cost/prescription (having gone over twice), there are a few points below that remain, I will act on them as you indicate:


  • File:Methylcellulose4000MpaS[11] (ask Doc James?)
  • File:Nicotine costs (DrugStats).svg --> Nicotine replacement therapy (graph does not indicate 'replacement therapy')?
  • File:NicotinePolacrilex costs (DrugStats).svg from Nicotine polacrilex[12] is it worth importing, its quite a small stub?
  • add Polyvinyl alcohol[13] article for the corresponding graph cost/prescription[14],[15]?(how would a prescription graph work for this article?)
  • AscorbicAcidPolyethyleneGlycol3350PotassiumChlorideSodiumAscorbateSodiumChlorideSodiumSulfate not certain what this is?(source[16] indicates [17] but another graph clearly indicates [18])
  • when I imported Adderall this[19] was imported with it, I tried to undue/rollback but it indicated ... 'Revision we are reverting to is identical to current revision'
graphs (showing only cost) do not have a wikipedia article/ as best I searched

...above points will be dealt with again as you indicate,(in terms of the graphs listed above while its possible I may have missed one, I did go over them at least twice) thank you--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 13:34, 11 April 2021 (UTC)

User:Ozzie10aaaa this first one pertains to this page.[20]... Done (to be frank the '4000MpaS' should be placed in the infobox as a synonym)
If you look at the source for nicotine[21] under brandnames it gives you examples. So yes this is NRT... Done
Will look at the rest shortly... Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 16:54, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
Would add the cost of "Nicotine polacrilex" to the NRT page. I would suggest merging nicotine polacrilex to NRT but thats just me. Doc James (talk · contribs email) 03:01, 12 April 2021 (UTC)...yes, that is a good idea, will do--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 03:15, 12 April 2021 (UTC) Done
With respect to Polyvinyl alcohol it is used as a medical eye drop. That article could use the development of a section with respect to that. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 03:06, 12 April 2021 (UTC)...[22] ok--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 03:19, 12 April 2021 (UTC) Done
This AscorbicAcidPolyethyleneGlycol3350PotassiumChlorideSodiumAscorbateSodiumChlorideSodiumSulfate is a form of bowel prep. I would put the graph at Macrogol for now which is its main active ingredient. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 03:08, 12 April 2021 (UTC)...Polyethylene Glycol3350?--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 03:33, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
Yes it is another formulation of PEG3350. So should go at that page with the other graphs on the stuff. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 16:36, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
[23] Done --Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 21:49, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
With respect to Adderall and Amphetamine yah Seppi used a fair bit of nesting of articles which is why importing one also imported the other. It is fine. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 03:11, 12 April 2021 (UTC)...I reverted[24]--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 03:28, 12 April 2021 (UTC) Done

This "PolyethyleneGlycol3350WithElectrolytes costs" is another form of Macrogol. A bunch of the rest are combination meds. Maybe we will eventually get around to making articles on them. Doc James

yes thats what I was going to raise with you, some of these articles (combination meds) might be useful while their not in wikipedia they would be created here...--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 03:24, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
We could also simple create short stubs for all of them. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 03:27, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
I'll get on it tomorrow as soon as I finish the rest of the points above(BTW your right, short stubs for these would be very good)--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 03:31, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
Have updated the infoboxe for combination medications Template:Infobox_drug#Combination_of_drugs_.28type.3Dcombo.29 Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 03:47, 12 April 2021 (UTC)
thanks, this should be relatively easy to do one by one(finished all the above though there is still one with a '?')--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 12:48, 12 April 2021 (UTC)



  • Doc James could you check list #30, #31, #32 and #33 breastfeeding infobox text to see if you agree, thank you--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 22:08, 13 April 2021 (UTC)
    • This[25] says "This drug is considered compatible with breastfeeding by the WHO." Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 23:39, 13 April 2021 (UTC)
      • Adjusted a bit. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 00:02, 14 April 2021 (UTC)
        • [26]this ref(WHO) yes your right... [27]was looking at "The manufacturer makes no recommendation regarding use during lactation", and indicated during pregnancy "Use is not recommended unless clearly needed"...to be frank had not looked at 'comment section' therefore thank you (incorporating WHO ref could also be done[28])--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 00:13, 14 April 2021 (UTC)


  • Doc James for the 'Legal' entry in infobox Ive had trouble finding if these combination medicines in US/ other countries need a prescription, therefore in some instances Ive indicated the legal status of the medication by itself (such as Codeine), please advise if this is ok/or should be otherwise, thank you--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 19:46, 14 April 2021 (UTC)
    • Maybe just leave it bland if you cannot find a source for the combination User:Ozzie10aaaa. Some doses of acetaminophine with codeine are OTC. Will other require an rx. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 15:34, 15 April 2021 (UTC)
      • ok, for some combo/meds it does give[29] but it is US only, for others [30],[31] indicate both prescription and OTC,--Ozzie10aaaa (talk) 16:07, 15 April 2021 (UTC)
