Before we start digging into individual drug categories and classifications – it will be useful to memorize some things.
Here is a link to a list of useful drug prefixes and suffixes / it is a pdf document.
Column 1 – prefix or suffix
Column 2 – drug classification
Column 3 – Example Med
Column 4 – precautions / some side effects (these are general).
If you memorize these and come across a medication that you’ve never heard of, this may be able to help you figure it out.
More next week – till then enjoy your weekend.
