Tips regarding phamocology

  1. English is my second language and all the drugs are strangers to me, even the most common ones. ;( I am really bad at their pronouncation, any website that can turn to help? thanks a lot.

    i have never found a web site that has sound and pronounces the generic names of the drugs. my mosby's nursing drug reference does give a guide to the pronouciation of the generic name just under each listing of each drug in the book, however. even around the hospital i have heard different doctors prounounce drug names differently. it would be very wise for you to be able to spell the drug names for people if there is a problem they are going to misunderstand any of your pronunciation.

    thanks for your advice, daytonite. though i am bad at spelling also, i will try my best to work it out.

    i just start my first semester of nursing school last week, when i noticed most of my classmates can understand what the instructor says about a drug, it's really depressed me a lot. most of the time, i feels like an idiot.;( hope things will be getting better.
