Top 200 Drugs Pharmacology Podcast – Drugs 16-20

In this episode of the Real Life Pharmacology podcast, I cover drugs 16-20 of the top 200 drugs. This podcast includes information about clozapine, furosemide, heparin, tetracycline, and vardenafil.

Clozapine has five boxed warnings and these are all items that you may see on your pharmacology and board exams! I’ve also blogged about these in the past at meded101.

Furosemide is a loop diuretic and a common indicator of the prescribing cascade. I discuss this in this podcast episode.

Heparin can cause thrombocytopenia. I discuss what HIT (heparin-induced thrombocytopenia) may look like.

Doxycycline Pharmacology

On this episode of the Real Life Pharmacology podcast, I explore doxycycline pharmacology, adverse effects, and drug interactions.

Doxycycline can be bound by numerous minerals like calcium, magnesium, and iron. Coadministration can lead to reduced concentrations.

Sun sensitivity is a really important adverse effect that can be caused by doxycycline. Be sure to educate your patients.

Doxycycline can be used as an alternative to beta-lactams and macrolides in the management of community-acquired pneumonia.
