Flashcards: Common Medication Suffixes

MedicNerd.com now offers you the time-tested technique of flashcards. Despite their name, flashcards are not flashy, but they accomplish two vital things:

  1. Flashcards weed out the fluff & help you focus strictly on essential information
  2. Flashcards repetitively force your brain to recall that information when questioned

Learning these common medication suffixes will help you quickly classify a medication and identify it’s use simply by the medication’s name.

Now get to work below & learn them!
