You gotta take prOPRA-nolol if you wanna talk to OPRAh!!!



The use of propranolol for PERFORMANCE ANXIETY. Propranolol is the beta blocker with the strongest sedation effect. Just thinking of the talk show can cause MIGRANE, ESSENTIAL TREMOR and ARRHYTMIAS(the other 3 uses of the drug).

1> Linking a drug name (Pilocarpine) to its action (Pupil constriction):
PILOCARPINE: A PILE of CAR-delivered PINEs is used for the pupil constri(u)ction project (illustruated with a figure).

2> Linking a drug class stem (-pril) to its action (Inhibition of an enzyme called ACE):
PRIL: PERIL is gone with E (Enzyme ACE). By knocking out the E, the PERIL is replaced with a -PRIL pill and the capital PERIL of hypertension and CHF can be diminished by captoPRIL (illustruated with a figure).

3> Linking a drug name (Sumatriptan) to its use (treatment of Migraine):
SUMATRIPTAN: If you have migraine in the SUMMER, simply take A TRIP for TAN. Just relax (illustruated with a figure).

I aplogize if somebodyelse came up with the same one before me. Too busy to check for that



2.How to remember the use of Latanoprost for treatment of glaucoma (it increases the outflow).
First we can make a small change. Instead of LatAno-prost (-prost- stays for Prostaglandin), we can use LatIno-prost. And using this information
Latinos living in the United States have high rates of eye disease and visual impairment

it is so easy to remember the use of Latanoprost or Latinoprost for glaucoma.

How to remember the names of the MC used drugs third generation Cephalosporins? Easy. Third Generation-->cef-Tazidime, cefo-Taxime, and cef-Triaxone. All of them start with CEF (they are Cephalosporins) and have the letter T in their name, right after CEF. There is an exception of that rule. Cef-oTeTan is a second generation Cephalosporin, starts with CEF and has the letter T in its name. It can’t be easier than that. Second generation=IInd. generation-->double T in the name of Cef-oTeTan. Simple!!!
