Drug Effects All drugs produce harmful as well as beneficial effects. Main effects: are related to desired therapeutic effect. Side effects: are unrelated to the desired effect. Placebo Effects: are based upon an inert substance's ability to elicit a significant therapeutic response, independent of any chemical property.

Drug Safety and Effectiveness Not all people respond to a similar dose of a drug in the exact same manner, this variability is based upon individual differences and is associated with toxicity. This variability is thought to be caused by: 3 Pharmacokinetic factors contribute to differing concentrations of the drug at the target area. Pharmacodynamic factors contribute to differing physiological responses to the same drug concentration. Unusual, idiosyncratic*, genetically determined or allergic, immunologically sensitized responses. * Idiosyncratic - odd, unusual to a particular group

Pharmacokinetics “…the study of the impact of the body on the drug.” (Houglum et al, 05) Drug molecules interact with target sites to effect the biological system The drug must be absorbed into the bloodstream and then carried to the target site(s) Pharmacokinetics is the study of drug absorption, distribution within body, and drug elimination
