Blackpool Victoria Hospital recently passed Duloxetine (Yentreve) for use in female patients for SUI where pelvic floor muscle exercises alone were not effective.
The consultant agreed that the inital prescription would be issued by the hospital although prescribing would be requested from GPs after this initial supply. It was also made clear at the meeting that prescribing of this drug for this indication was not expected to continue beyond one year.
Action: GPs prescribing of Duloxetine for SUI is to be expected when requested by the consultants in Urology. You should audit reguarly to ensure that supply does not continue beyond one year.
