JEFF THE PHARMACIST
October 31, 2018
From the video notes: “Thanks for tuning in, today I discuss the new sleep medicine Belsomra. It is competing with a lot of other options like Ambien (Zolpidem), Lunesta, Unisom, Zzzquil and a lot of others.”
Takeaway: Jeff the Pharmacist is for real. Dr. Jeffrey Paup, PharmD is a community pharmacist and a clinical assistant professor at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy . We may not like that patients are going to Google and YouTube for information about sleep health, but at least we have people like Dr. Paup there to keep it accessible and real.
