  • With some weird diagrams, PV still manages to explain the mechanism of drugs action with flowcharts and images.
Suggestions to those studying physiology in B Pharmacy and Second-year MBBS are as follows:
  • Most of the pharmacology is mugging up, you will end up making a number of mnemonics for them.
  • But do not miss important topics, including the drugs for cardiology, antibiotics, etc.
  • Do not miss Emergency medicine drugs.
