It is important to understand each of these in order to carry out the medical assistant’s role in pharmacology.51.3 Drug categories are sometimes named based on their action. The major drug categories and their actions are outlined in Table 51-1.In Summary (cont.)51.4 Nonprescription drugs, including herbal and OTC drugs, can be obtained without a physician’s order. For prescription drugs, patients must have a physician’s written (or oral) order.51.5 Credible sources for drug information are the Physicians’ Desk Reference® (PDR), United States Pharmacopeia-National Formulary, and the American Hospital Formulary Service (AHFS®). You may also access medication information from package inserts, drug labels, and other reliable Internet sites.In Summary (cont.)51.6 The medical assistant should assist the physician with registration, renewal, and ordering of controlled substances, as outlined in the Controlled Substance Act of 1970 and Procedure 51-1.51.7 A prescription must be complete to be filled. The medical assistant must be able to interpret a prescription in order to manage new and refilled medications. Procedure 51-2 and Table 51-4 will assist the medical assistant in performing these tasks.In Summary (cont.)51.8 Multiple nonpharmacologic methods are used to treat pain, including CAM therapies such as massage, yoga, biofeedback, chiropractic, acupuncture, magnetic therapy, hypnotism, and glucosamine chondroitin.51.9 Immunizations usually contain killed or weakened organisms. When given, they stimulate the body to build up a resistance to the organism. They are used to provide immunity against specific diseases.End of Chapter 51It is easy to get a thousand prescriptions but hard to get one single remedy.  ~Chinese Proverb
