5 True/False questions
H1 receptor blockers (antihistamines) → 1st gen cause significant drowsiness. dry mouth, tachycardia, and mild hypotension
thrombolytics → like anticoagulants, bleeding is major adverse effect.
biologic response modifiers → flulike syndrome of fever, chills, dizziness, and fatigue, headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and anorexia. depression and suicidal ideation have been reported. with prolonged therapy, immunosuppression, serious toxicity such as hepatotoxicity and neurotoxicity may be observed
nonbenzodiazepine, nonbarbiturate CNS depressants → generally similar to SSRIs and SNRIs. headache, insomnia, nervousness, dry mouth, dizziness, weight loss, sexual dysfunction, chills, confusion, anxiety, restlessness, HTN, termors, sweating, fever, blurred vision, constipation, and muscle incoordination
Diuretics → GI disturbances such as indigestion, flatulence, cramping, and constipation. can cause muscle injury resulting in symptoms such as weakness, soreness, and pain. atorvastatin and rosuvastatin are effective regardless the time of day taken. taking other statin drugs in the evening makes them available to work on the higher amount of cholesterol that the body makes at night.
