drug groups song for nursing students. A low tech recording using a playstation mic, garageband and a you tube backing track, but you get the idea!Groups of drugs, you have to know, know!
(to the tune of Wake Me Up Before You Go, Go!)
** drug prefixes or suffixes written in quotation marks are sung as a word, and when written as letters separated by hyphens, each letter is sung (ie -- it is spelled out!) **
Non steroidal anti inflammatory's
They start with "indo"or end with "fen" if you please
And your Benzodiazapines
End in "pam" "pam" "pam"
And make you calm again
But cox 2 inhibitors have a "cox"
And drugs with O-L-O-L
Make your Beta's block,

& thiazide diuretics end in "iazide"!
