Product Description:

This primary textbook for a first course in pharmacology offers an integrated, systems-based, and mechanism-based approach to understanding drug therapy. Each chapter focuses on a target organ system, begins with a clinical case, and incorporates cell biology, biochemistry, physiology, and pathophysiology to explain how and why different drug classes are effective for diseases in that organ system.

Over 400 two-color illustrations show molecular, cellular, biochemical, and pathophysiologic processes underlying diseases and depict targets of drug therapy. Each Second Edition chapter includes a drug summary table presenting mechanism, clinical applications, adverse effects, contraindications, and therapeutic considerations. New chapters explain how drugs produce adverse effects and describe the life cycle of drug development.

The fully searchable online text and an image bank are available on thePoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Best Pharmacology Text for Medical Students and a Must-Read for PBL (Problem-Based Learning) Students, May 21, 2015
I used this text throughout my Problem-Based Learning Curriculum based on the recommendation of one of my predecessors who really knew how to vet learning resources. It gave me an incredible understanding of the molecules and mechanisms of pharmacology -- far better than the Lippincott book that many folks use. It has an associated workbook. If you read this and take good notes as you read to really understand the text you will have a far better understanding of pharmacology than most or all of your colleagues. I also referred to AccessMedicine online versions of Goodman and Gilman and Katzung (as in PBL we liked to look at many resources to see each topic from various perspectives), but the Farrell text gave me the greatest understanding of each medication class. If I had to use just one text, this would be it.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Wonderful and informative, May 03, 2015

Love browsing through it. Heavy text book (not just in topic but in weight.. lol) but worth every penny! I am learning a lot and I am not actually a student. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Fast delivery!, May 30, 2013
By Marilia T.
I needed this book for a class that I was already taken, and I almost got a new one so I could be sure I would have it in 2 days (amazon prime).

But because of the price I chose to get this used one, and it actually took also 2 days to be delivered! Life saving!

You can say that the book has been used before, but no pages missing, or texts highlighted. Just fine for my purposes!

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Love it., February 10, 2013

I find that I think more in broad terms while classifying, sorting and archiving....and what works in real life and traditional Western Medicine than technical terms but the book is great for everyone in the sciences. I wish there were more comparison charts for the drugs versus receptor charts on how the drugs work...but again, we have many different users and we can't provide all the venn diagrams needed for all the professions so feel free to create your own comparison charts. The charts at the end of each chapter are so well organized that the only focus is to classify and sort through the drug names etc...they did the work for you as a summary to each chapter.
