I was going through my old notes to file them away. I ran across this little "poem" that my instructor gave us. I'm not really sure if she came up with it or found it somewhere but, it really helped me to remember which were which. Thought I'd share. I'm done with Pharmacology, finished with an A
Hopefully you guys find it useful too.
Prissy PRILs get all A's (Ace inhibitors) e.g. lisinopril, monopril
OLOL (all) get B's (Beta blockers) e.g. labetolol, propranolol
CAL PINES for his girlfriend (calcium channel blockers) Amodopine, felodopine
The SARTAN (sultan) ARBitrarialy (ARB- Angiiotensin II Receptor Blocker) beats his camel e.g Losartan
Of course there are exceptions, but it was still very helpful to me.
