BT_PO 1.99 Some neuropharmacology

Following my blunder this morning, I went looking for an LO related to memory – there isn’t one.

I found this one instead 

BT_PO 1.99   Outline the pharmacology of anti-depressant, anti- psychotic, anti-convulsant, anti-parkinsonian and anti- migraine medication
The link above is a little misleading as the top of the two LOs ( BT_PM 1.9) is actually something you need to know in detail.

I also thought I would show you a bit of art from a Japanese artist, Yayoi Kusama, now in her 90s, who has lived voluntarily, since 1977, in a psychiatric hospital. The piece below was created last year- “All the eternal love I have for pumpkins”


Fluoxetine significantly inhibits cytochrome P450 enzymes T/F

Nortriptyline is usually better tolerated in the elderly than amitriptyline T/F

There is a significant risk of serotinergic syndrome when SSRIs are given with tapentadol T/F

Chronic lithium therapy has no effect on MAC of inhaled anaesthetics T/F

Haemodyalisis is effective in the treatment of tricyclic antidepressant toxicity T/F
