Concepts Of Pharmacotherapy

The reaction to a drug depends in part on the characteristics and behavior of the patient (eg. As enjoyment of food or supplements, compliance with dosing regimens, age [pharmacokinetics in the elderly], gender, race, genetic variability in metabolism, liver failure or renal failure), on the comorbidity and the use of other drugs. Medication errors (z. B. prescribing an unsuitable drug Error reading of the recipe, incorrect application of a drug), the reaction can also affect.

As efficacy, safety profile, type of application, type of elimination, dosage frequency, costs) and the characteristics of the patient (eg., Age, sex, other medical problems, probability pregnancy, ethnicity, other genetic determinants) selected. Risks and benefits of the product must also be considered; each drug represents an element of risk.
