Overview

FUNDAMENTAL PHARMACOLOGY FOR PHARMACY TECHNICIANS, 2nd Edition delivers a clear understanding of how pharmaceuticals act within the body, and the ways drugs are used to treat patients today. Written to deliver complex information in a practical, easy-to-understand style, chapters impart a working knowledge of the medications that pharmacy technicians handle daily, along with each drug’s mechanism of action, indications, adverse effects, contraindications, and interactions. Beginning with an overview of anatomy and physiology, the text then moves on to explore how the body systems react to specific drug classes. Detailed appendices and review questions prepare readers for the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) exam.
