Aminoglycoside Pharmacology Episode 006

On this episode, I will discuss aminoglycoside pharmacology.  Gentamicin and tobramycin are the two classic examples of aminoglycosides.  We will review how these medication work in the body, adverse effects, and the importance of pharmacokinetics and laboratory monitoring.

Statin Pharmacology Episode 005

In this episode, I talk about the most commonly used statins.  In my practice I see simvastatin, atorvastatin, rosuvastatin, and pravastatin used most frequent.

In addition, I also discuss why statins are dosed at night, possible side effects, and important drug interactions.

Statins can help lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of cardiovascular events like heart attack.  I mentioned on the podcast and wanted to give that link to you.

Hope you enjoy the episode!

Real Life Pharmacology Introduction – Episode 001

In this introduction episode of Real Life Pharmacology, I discuss the two major reasons why I wanted to start this podcast.  I also share a little bit about my background which you can also find here.

Reason 1: I want to help young healthcare professionals by providing an alternative option to help them learn pharmacology.

Reason 2: I have had professors in college that don’t practice in the real world and really have a tough time relaying important and relevant clinical information.  I wanted a way to share some of my experiences as a clinical pharmacist, which I believe will help you provide better care for your patients.
