So, I'm studying for NCLEX (tomorrow is the big day!) and came up with a few sorta dumb med memory tricks that might help you all out (and it will help me memorize them by talking about it!--so, win-win!!!)
Going by the med ending (and few are inappropriate).
-afil... You won't be a-fillin anything with erectile dysfunction
-azole... It would suck to have fungus
in the a-zole.
-barbital.... I had a clinical instructor named Barb and she knew it all...soooo "Barb knew it all, and know it alls are depressing. (CNS Depressants)
).."my mood feels e-tinee bit better"
-lol....LOLs block to lower blood pressure (so, like a beta blocker...a good laugh...good mood=better blood pressure) Just an FYI, nothing to do with antidepressants, just blood pressure.
-oxin...can't really share this in words, but I drew an ox laying on it's back with a tongue sticking it...because, "the ox is in heart failure
-april...April lowers your blood pressure
-Tidine (H2)..."to dine is to eat without pain
-Triptan "I trip to tan, not get headaches
