  2. carbidopa, benserazide
  3. deferiprone
  4. azoles
  5. nifedipine, amlodipine
  1. a class of antifungal cell membrane synthesis inhibitors. Target ergosterol synthesis via 14-aemethylase
  2. b non- cardioselective calcium channel blockers for angina and hypertension (induce vasodilation, decrease afterload and preload), INCREASE HR (reflex)
  3. c DDCIs, used in combination with levodopa in PD.
  4. d Iron chelator. For acute iron toxicity or haemachromatosis, forms a complex with ferric iron and is excreted in urine. Orally absorbed, careful monitoring required (risk of agranulocytosis)
  5. e infrequently used broncodilator for asthma. contains methylxantine that relaxes smooth muscle.

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. Antihypertensive. Osmotic diuretic, acts on whole nephron. Blocks tubular water resorption and reduces Na+ resorption rate.
  2. Broad spectrum antihelmintic. Nicotinic agonist (inhibits cholinesterase), causes spastic paralysis of helminths. Poorly absorbed from GIT, few SEs.
  3. non- selective B1 and B2 antagonist used for angina, arrhythmia (class II) and hypertension
  4. antimetabolite antifungal, targets nucleic acid synthesis
  5. MAO-B inhibitor, used in PD. Minor side effects (insomnia and headaches). Reduces wearing off associated with levodopa.

5 True/False questions

  1. spironolactone, eplerenomeCOMT inhibitors, used alone or with levodopa and DDCIs (prolongs half life of levodopa). Used in PD.


  2. beta blockersGABA agonist used for Huntington's disease.


  3. sargramostimGM-CSF. Used to treat neutropenia in chemotherapy and after bone marrow transplant.


  4. tranexamic acidAntihypertensive. Diuretic. Carbonic anhydrase inhibitor (acts at PCT) which inhibits H+ secretion and Na+ reabsorption.


  5. aspirinAntiplatelet. COX inhibitor. Indications: arterial thrombosis (e.g. stroke and MI prevention, post- surgery). Not useful for venous thrombosis.
