The thought of studying meds for NCLEX is overwhelming! Basically, I concentrated on the catagories (beta blockers, antifungals, etc...) & tried to be familiar with the most frequently prescribed ones, major side effects, & any specifics that stood "red man syndrome", "visual disturbances", "take 30 minutes before meals"...Most of my med questions were teaching questions...either the pt required more teaching or they understood.
