I took a review class where we review anatomy&physiology. all the diseases we came across in each system, we looked up the treatment. and i learned meds that way: by the systems.
another way i learned meds was through doing questions. EVERY time i came across a med, i looked it up. even if i got the question right. cuz sometimes i guessed right on a question with a med i didn't know or remember.
i have an iphone, and i have an app called "flashcardlet." i had flashcards that dealt with therapeutic drug monitoring, the normal and abnormals. so i learned that way as well.
on test day, i had 4 meds i didn't know. one i knew, but the bit of information i memorized with that med wasn't in my answer choices. it will happen. you just gotta do your best process of elimination.
one question tho, the pt had elevated ST segments on their ekg and it asked what med would I give this pt? that was probably the only time i could remember i definitely knew which med to give.
when you find a good way to help you remember, stick to it!
