It’s a question that has been answered by a team of researchers who have conducted a meta-analysis of the evidence surrounding ED medications.
They’ve found that while some studies suggest ED medications are more effective in treating pica, the data isn’t conclusive.
“I think this meta-analyses is one of the first ones where the data is really consistent and clearly showing that ED medications can be more effective than placebo,” said Dr. Daniel Haus, one of two authors of the study.
The researchers say they’re confident that the findings can be generalized to the general population, which is the focus of their upcoming book.
Haus said the findings don’t necessarily mean that ED medication is useless.
“The data does not prove that ED is useless,” he said.
“I think there are other things that can help people manage pica.
And that’s one of those things that we think is really important.”
The researchers conducted their analysis after studying the literature on ED medications, including a 2015 Cochrane review that looked at a variety of ED medications in the U.S. The study concluded that ED drugs were generally more effective at treating picanos than placebo, but there was a significant lack of scientific evidence supporting that.
“So we’re not saying that ED was useless, but we’re saying that it’s not clear that ED has much value,” Haus explained.
The research is based on data from more than 2,500 patients treated in hospitals and clinics across the U and Europe.
The authors also looked at the effectiveness of other medications, such as antihistamines and anti-inflammatory drugs, and whether those drugs were more effective for picanosis.
They found that those drugs could help relieve symptoms of pica while also reducing inflammation.
But they also noted that some studies have suggested that they might not be effective at all.
The findings of the meta-study were published in the journal BMC Psychiatry.
Haus says the findings of this meta study will help doctors decide if it’s best to use a combination of ED medication and antihistamine to treat picanosa.
While he’s hopeful that the study will prompt researchers to look at more research, he said it’s also important for doctors to take a wait-and-see approach to how the drugs might work.
Dr. Robert Pappas, an assistant professor of pediatrics at the University of Iowa, said that it would be very difficult to make a definitive call about whether or not ED medications would be beneficial in treating Pica.
“In terms of EDs, I think it’s really hard to make that determination,” he told Bleacher Beat.
He explained that the data in this meta is pretty clear that these drugs have a significant effect in the treatment of picanoses.
“It’s really important to be cautious,” he added.
“We’re not sure how effective these drugs are, but they’re more effective when they’re combined with other medications.”
Haus said that there is some evidence that a combination antihistaminic and antiinflammatory might help, but he doesn’t think it would prove effective in picanopomors.
“People may have a higher risk of developing a pica-associated disease, and that could have an effect on whether they’re able to treat it,” he explained.
Haus noted that a lot of the data comes from smaller studies, which can be difficult to interpret.
For example, some of the studies looked at only a handful of patients, which may not be representative of the general patient population.
“There are also a lot more studies that are going to be done in a year, or maybe even 10 years, to see if we can really generalize and make any real conclusions about whether ED medications have a particular benefit,” he continued.
“But I think that we’re pretty confident that these are really good drugs.”
