FAQ: How to cope up with pharmacology?
I just started bough KD Tripathi and started drug names in pharmacology. These names just seem so random, and are so hard to memorize some which i cant even pronounce. With anatomy and biochemistry, the names of structures/enzymes actually make sense, but pharmacology is completely another story. Does anyone know of any good books/websites/methods to help memorize these totally random drug names? Thanks.

UNANSWERED: Topics division/frequency in final mbbs question papers?

Try the book by Sujit.K.Chuadhuri, Central publishers

icon_smile.gif Thaks Bruno but, never saw or heard about this book. can u tell me whatz special about this book?


Bruno


can u tell me whatz special about this book?

1. The style of writing is very different , more in an informal way liek some one talking to you, rather than the formal "dictionay like" style of other books.

2. Starting with Physiology and then discussing the drgus and then the clinical uses (very much helpful for Cardiology and Nephrology)

3. You will remember the basic facts for a long time if your read this book.

Disadvantages

1. Not revised since 1998

In fact the few shortcoming of Tripathi are very well covered in the book "Quintessence of Pharmacology" Central Publishers and vice versa.

hi

i think 'Wrang n Dale' is a good book to clear ur concepts in pharmac.....
'Satoskar' is good 4 general pharmac... n f course 'Tripathi' s there.....
i dnt think u can simplify any terms.... u have to remember them by any sorts...

Hmm.Pharmac has never been my favourite.So I know what orion was talking about.The policy is to start low and go slow.Pharmac has to be done on a daily basis.For eg.do a single category of drugs everyday.Like if you do sulpha tday than do penicillins tomorrow and so on with cephalosporins,tetra etc.At weekends say sunday only revise what you did that week.Every month end you then revise for the whole month.If you go regularlythen you wont get confused and also remember pharmac all the time.

pharma is definetly mind wrangling. all you require is:
* make charts of classifications of each class of drugs
* make a point to revise them frequently
no matter what ever book you follow if you can try this you will never feel it tough after all you get over it.

i think the Tripathi and Lippincott's pharmacology combination is better. and i find the language of katzung is difficult........ icon_rolleyes.gif

Better to stick to one book guys.And tripathi definitely the best.Learn it well as I told you and do the Qs from old papers.You will sail through with distinction!

YOU HAVE TO MEMORISE THEM HOWEVER WEIRD THEY MAY APPEAR.
GROUP DISCUSSION OR BY CALLING CLOSE FRIENDS BY THOSE HEBREW NAMES OR MAKING MNEUMONICS WOULD HELP.HOPE THIS HELPS YOU. icon_lol.gif
