  1. A.C.E inhibitors
    Angiotensin Converting Enzyme inhibitors block the conversion of angiotensin I to angiotensin II.

    Block AII = decrease bp, vasodilation

    PRIL
  2. A.2.R.B
    Angiotensin 2 Receptor Blockers block AII enzymes from specific receptor sites.

    Block AII activity = block vasoconstriction

    ARTAN
  3. Antibiotics
    Inhibit reproduction of new bacteria cells.
  4. Anticonvulsants
    Suppress rapid firing of neurons in the nervous system (brain).

    Anti-epileptic or anti-seizure drugs
  5. Anti-diabetic/ Sulfonylureas
    Lower blood glucose levels. Only treat Type II Diabetes.
  6. Benzodiazepines
    Benzos are used as anti-anxiety agents, muscle relaxants, sedatives and hypnotics

    PAM
  7. Beta Blockers (B1)
    Beta-adrenergic blocking agents. Block adrenaline receptors, cause actions in the heart.

    OLOL
  8. Calcium Channel Blockers
    Calcium channel blockers block calcium channels in cardiac muscle and blood vessels, slows down heart activity.
  9. Diuretics
    Used to treat hypertension. Promote evacuation of water from the body which decreases pressure on CV system.
  10. HMG CoA Reductase Inhibitors (Statin)
    Inhibits HMG CoA reductase which produces cholesterol in the liver. Statin lowers cholesterol production.

    STATIN
  11. NSAID
    Non Steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs are commonly used as analgesics and fever reducers.

    Non-narcotic, sold OTC.
  12. Opiod
    Provides an analgesic effect by decreasing the perception of pain and increasing pain tolerance.
  13. Proton Pump Inhibitors
    Inhibit the action of gastric proton pumps which reduces gastric acid production.

    PRAZOLE
  14. S.S.R.I
    Selective Serotonin Re-uptake Inhibitors increase the body's serotonin.

    Anti-depressants.

  33. -tropin
    pituitary hormone
  34. -zosin
    postsynaptic alpha1 antagonist (alpha1 blocker)
  35. -triptyline
