PHAR 152 is designed to teach students how to categorize commonly prescribed/dispensed oral and injectable drugs into their therapeutic drug classifications. Emphasis will be on the top 200 prescription drugs prescribed in the U.S. For each top 200 drug, the student will distinguish between generic and brand name, recognize common indications and identify available dosage forms, strengths, routes of administration, common dosing regimens, contraindications, side effect profiles, and significant drug interactions. As the therapeutic drug classifications are studied, human medical conditions (as related to anatomy and physiology) will be reviewed. Lecture: 3 hours per week
Prerequisites: Complete PHAR-151 with a minimum grade of C-.
