Take Home – New requirement to write Narcan for patients who are taking Benzos plus Narcotics.  This means even if you didn’t write for them, you are obligated to write for Narcan.  Especially important if you are writing a benzo to someone on narcotic or if you write norco for someone on a benzo.

Interesting question.  Remember ABCD2 score for TIA discharge/admission.  I have traditionally given numbness/paresthesias a very low priority with TIA considerations.  This is probably true overall but high risk patients should have consideration for TIA admission.  This patient has symptoms for over a day so MRI should show something.
