Meds study tips?
- 0Mar 18, '13 by classicdame GuideJust PO or IV too?
If PO I recommend you divide into categories like biguanide, sulonylureas, etc. Then list the ones in each category and the MAJOR side effect, how soon they work, and what is main contraindication (for instance, Metformin cannot be given for 48 hours after a contrast dye was given the patient).
If IV you need to know which are rapid (end with "log"), which are short, intermediate and long-acting. Then you need to know the onset, peak and action periods. There are grids and tables on the internet for all this if you look. Try diabetes.org

Attached are 12 Word documents which I made when I took pharmacology. All the information was based on the ATI study guide since that constituted the final exam in our class.
They are formatted as 3x5 cards and were printed on individual 3x5 cards.
Have at 'em if you think they'll help... they certainly worked for me.
Again, they are entirely my own creation based on the information out of the ATI book. I make no promises as to their accuracy (though I rocked pharm so they couldn't be too bad).
Feedback is welcome.
