Problems written for an Introductory Pharmacology course

This course serves to introduce students to both pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic concepts. The issues discussed included concentration-response relations, graded and quantal dose-responses, receptor theory, therapeutic and toxic effects of drugs, experimental basis for analysing drug-receptor interactions, receptor-response coupling, non-receptor mediated effects if drugs, absorption, distribution, biotransformation, excretion of drugs, routes of administration formulations, pharmacokinetic parameters.

Accordingly, the TRIPSE problems seek to emphasise analysis of concentration-response curves and pharmacodynamic/pharmacokinetic issues.
