What exactly happens when you take an aspirin? Why do you have to continue taking certain medications instead of just taking them once? What exactly is the difference between pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics?
If you’ve ever wanted to better understand what that little pill does to your body–and what your body does to that little pill–you’ll enjoy the Interactive Clinical Pharmacology website.
This site was developed by the the Department of Clinical Pharmacology at the Christchurch Hospital and School of Medicine in New Zealand.
What I appreciated in particular was the ability to interact with the website’s animated illustrations. This allows you to grasp a bit easier certain complex aspects of pharmacology. But fair warning: the website does presume, as the authors put it themselves, “a basic understanding of physiology and pharmacology”.
