BRS Pharmacology is designed for medical students, dental students, and other students preparing to enter the health care professions. It is intended primarily to help students prepare for licensing examinations, such as the USMLE, but can be used for course review or as a supplementary text. This book presents succint descriptions of how drugs act on the major body systems, providing readers with vital information without overloading them with extraneous details. Written with a body systems approach, the book begins with a chapter devoted to the general principles of drug mechanisms, and continues with chapters that detail how drugs act on the major body systems. Other chapters discuss numerous popular drugs, like autocoids, ergots, anti-inflammatory drugs, and immunosuppresive agents. Readers will also learn about drugs used to treat anemia, disorders of hemostatis, infectious diseases, and cancer. Additionally, the text covers pharmacological principles associated with toxicology.

User’s Reviews

Reviews from Amazon users which were colected at the time this book was published on the website:

⭐I used this book as an MS-2 to supplement course work, as my sole text for the NBME Pharmacology Shelf and sole text for Step 1 pharmacology. Even as an MS-3 I do not leave home without this book so you can look forward to knowing that this book will continue to serve you well in the wards. Indeed, it presents a lot of material but in outline format and I found that I only really needed to highlight a fraction of the book to really master pharmacology for the MS-II year, shelf, and Step. However, even as an MS-3, I continue to add highlights and annotations to the book and even further refine my knowledge in pharmacotherapy. My pharm shelf exam, which is taken as MS-2, was tied for the highest in my class and I have always attributed that to the excellent layout of the book and subsequently, the ability to quickly get through it over and over again once you have performed a first pass highlight through all the chapters. Buy this book, cherish it, and it will not let you down. It also has vignette and short style qs, 10-20 qs at end of chapters and an 80 q cumulative test at the end of the book, another asset of the book.My advice is to update it as you go through MS-II, but please, go through this book as early as possible and PLEASE highlight sparingly. Don’t get carried away, especially easy when you begin the book and/or 1st section in pharmacology of the MS-II year (I was guilty of this) since at that time, there may be less appreciation for the fact that you will have a plethora of info to know by the time your at the end of the year. My advice would be to focus on highlighting/annotating where the high yields of your lecture notes overlap with this book and in addition to that, any information UWorld teaches you (which 90% of the time, is already in this book anyway which again, is a testament to how comprehensive this text is relative to the skeleton that is First Aid pharm). High yields = mechanism of action, major indications, unique adverse reactions. Past that, I believe Uworld will teach you any “un-“unique adverse reactions needed to know and any important modes of metabolism for certain drugs of interest, e.g. digoxin being renally excreted and thus needing to check CrCl b4 and during treatment. Wishing you all the best in your pharmacologic endeavors, and beyond 🙂

⭐No one is really putting out a phenomenal pharmacology review book for the didactic years of medical school, but this contains the information you need to learn the subject. The review questions are great.

⭐Useless, use pharmcards for board studying, and just use your lectures for med school exams. I didn’t feel like this book elucidated very many useful concepts.

⭐Purchase went well and item arrived fast, all as expected!I’m leaving 5 stars but I’m not paid for this nor do I get items for free.

⭐It’s a good book and was recommended for my class but I only ended up using it once or twice. Could have saved my money but it may help with NP boards.. we shall see

⭐I was looking for something better than my text, this was about par with my text. Not very in depth, so for me in NP school, not really helpful relative to the other resources available.

⭐Questions were very helpful in reviewing for exams. Diagrams also helped explain things as well.

⭐great book. just not very useful for me
