Pharmacology courses

pharmacology courses online Pharmacology Courses OnlineWe’ve all been to the pharmacy at one time or another – whether we were having a prescription filled or picking up an over-the-counter cold medicine. Pharmacology is what the pharmacists study to become pharmacists. Did you know that you can take many pharmacology courses online?

This enables you to work towards your pharmacy degree without quitting your current job, since the courses can usually be taken at your convenience. This also makes it possible to meet the pharmacology requirements for other fields of study, or other occupations, such as nursing. Pharmacists do more than work in drug stores and fill prescriptions. They may also work in hospitals, home health care agencies, government agencies, nursing homes, in pharmaceutical companies, or they may choose to teach pharmacology to others in an educational institution.

Today there is a shortage of pharmacists, and pharmacist’s assistants. This shortage is of great concern because pharmacists are a vital part of the overall healthcare system. This contributes to the field of pharmacology being a financially rewarding career. Although there is a shortage, this is the third largest occupation in the health care industry in the United States.

Pharmacists earn approximately $89, 000 per year or more. This depends on whether they open their own private pharmacy, work for a hospital, work for a chain pharmacy, or go into pharmaceutical research. Pharmacy technicians or assistants earn about $30, 000 to $40, 000 per year.

Different types of pharmacists include extended care pharmacists, community pharmacists, industrial pharmacists, academic pharmacists, and more. Typically, a pharmacist has a master’s degree, but may advance his or her education to receive a Doctorate of Pharmacy. While becoming a pharmacists does require a great deal of education, much of which must be obtained in a classroom or laboratory setting, many of the courses required can be taken in an online environment.

One of the drug's many side effects is sleep disturbance, including insomnia and hypersomnia (if i remember my pharmacology books correctly) so it's not that uncommon. I assume that you were on 25 mg before, which is a very small dose (I have seen little kids on 100 in my line of work). Did your doctor tell you why he was upping the meds? do you feel better since you upped them? Unfortunately, sometimes there is a trade of symptoms for side effects, but you must ask yourself which is better for you. Also, there are other anti-deps your doctor could prescribe. good luck.

A question

by DebbieViolette

Hi Clair:
Just to clarify: It sounds like your experience is that the only noticeable physical effect of spiro was breast development, and that only by adding estrogen did you notice skin softening, generalized fat migration, generalized loss of muscle mass, as well as enhanced breast development.
Is this an accurate reading of your post?
Incidentally, this is of course consistent with the side effects of these drugs as described in pharmacology texts. Always nice when the books match reality.

BUrroughs Naked Lunch

by DoctorBenway

I just finished reading Naked Lunch and was suprised at how good it was. I've avoided Burroughs because his writing seemed haphazard and nonsensical (obviously the cut-up books would have that effect) and also because he was way to "hip" and hyped.
However, this book is incredibly good. Part satire, part detective story, part science fiction, part comedy, part Joyce, with a bunch of different argots from medical jargon (pathology, pharmacology) to junkie street slang. The book is an invocation of a mental state of alienation and as such has no linear narrative. It is a series of scenes that seem to me to have the loose thematic connection of how an outsider interfaces with society

Employment law: seeking advice

by jobs2006

Here is a problem solving issue:
Q: You have a pharma sales job that requires home study. Lots of science & pharmacology.
Your job is contingent on a passing grade (A) on all tests. Each test is compounded so from the very beginning you need to do well.
My classmates received their books 3 weeks ago. I just got mine. We have 2 tests next week. I'm at a HUGE disadvantage because there's loads of shit I could've learned during the previous 2-weeks I didn't have the books.
Moving forward, the future weeks will be compressed with having to learn the diseases and the drugs
