The Residence Of A 74-Year-Old Man Who Was Experiencing Dizzy Spells, Tremors, Muscular Rigidity, And Hyperthermia: Pharmacology Assignment, TCD, Ireland
|University||Trinity College Dublin (TCD)|
You responded to the residence of a 74-year-old man who was experiencing dizzy spells, tremors, muscular rigidity, and hyperthermia. He notified me that he had been taking paroxetine for depressive episodes for some time with no concerns and that he had just last week been given a prescription of tramadol for backaches.
Please remember that the intention of this assignment is to describe the pharmacological properties (pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics ) of the two drugs and the possible mechanisms of drug interaction (beneficial or adverse). There should be NOT much focus on clinical aspects for this assignment as per instructions (see also the simplified example)
