MechanismDrugDisease / Use
Inhaled glucocorticoid + rapidly-acting, long duration β2 agonistAsthma prophylaxis (Steps 3-6), prophylaxis for COPD that includes chronic bronchitis
Increase GABAA receptor functionInduction of general anesthesia
GABA transport inhibitor, intended to increase extracellular GABA concentration in CNSPrevention of generalized tonic-clonic and partial seizures
Stabilizes inactivated state of sodium channel, inhibits GABA metabolism, inhibits low threshold calcium current, inhibits HDAC, others?Prevention of generalized tonic-clonic, partial, and absence seizures
µ receptor agonists, intended to depress spinal cord and brain pain pathways (highly lipophilic)Pre- and intra-operative analgesia
µ receptor agonist, activates the dopamine reward pathwayAddictive drug
µ receptor agonist, intended to depress spinal cord and brain pain pathwaysPostoperative analgesia in hospital, end-of-life analgesia
Increase GABAA receptor function, increase amplitude or duration of IPSPs in CNSPrevention of generalized tonic-clonic and partial seizures
Bind γ regulatory subunit of voltage-gated calcium channels, others?Prevention of generalized tonic-clonic and partial seizures
α1 agonists, heteroexchange with NE (vasoconstriction)Nasal allergy
GABA aminotransferase inhibitor, intended to increase GABA concentration in CNSPrevention of generalized tonic-clonic and partial seizures
Block of sodium channel, preferentially block firing in pain fibers (know why)Local anesthetics
µ receptor agonist, intended to depress spinal cord and brain pain pathways and to occupy µ receptors in the reward pathway Chronic pain, maintain abstinence from narcotics
Block of NMDA channelDissociative anesthesia
Skeletal muscle nicotinic receptor antagonists, relax skeletal muscles during surgeryNon-depolarizing neuromuscular blocking agents
Inhaled glucocorticoid + slow-acting, long duration β2 agonistAsthma prophylaxis (Steps 3-6), prophylaxis for COPD that includes chronic bronchitis
Reversible anticholinesterase, intended to prevent hydrolysis of ACh in peripheryTerminate action of non-depolarizing neuromuscular blocking agents
Oral glucocorticoid (inhibition of mast cell mediator synthesis, reduced leukocyte chemotaxis, up regulation of β2 receptor number and agonist sensitivity)Used after albuterol for acute asthmatic attack, asthma prophylaxis (Step 6)
Binds SV2A synaptic vesicle protein, modulates excessive transmitter releasePrevention of generalized tonic-clonic and partial seizures
Agonists of benzodiazepine site on GABAA receptorSedation and amnesia
Peripheral µ receptor antagonists, intended to reverse narcotic-induced constipationNarcotic-induced constipation
Partial µ receptor agonist, inhibits NE/5-HT transportMild pain
Glucocorticoid nasal sprays (inhibition of mast cell mediator synthesis, reduced leukocyte chemotaxis)Chronic nasal allergy
Skeletal muscle nicotinic receptor agonist, relax skeletal muscles during surgery through depolarization blockDepolarizing neuromuscular blocking agent

Inhibition of low threshold calcium current, intended to prevent burst discharge of thalamic relay neuronsPrevention of absence seizures
Partial µ receptor agonist, intended to depress the cough reflexCough
MechanismDrugDisease / Use
Rapidly-acting, short duration β2 agonist + muscarinic antagonist (longer bronchodilation than achievable with albuterol alone) Severe acute asthmatic attack (Steps 1-6), acute bronchoconstriction in COPD
Inhibition of cyclo-oxygenases, intended to block production of inflammatory prostaglandinsInflammatory pain, prevention of neuropathic pain

Rapidly-acting, short duration β2 agonist (bronchodilation)Acute asthmatic attack (Steps 1-6)
Humanized monoclonal antibody against VEGF, intended to block blood vessel formation behind the retinaWet age-related macular degeneration
α2 agonist, reduces the production of aqueous humour, increases outflow of aqueous humour through the uveoscleral routeOpen angle glaucoma
Partial µ receptor agonist, occupies µ receptors in the reward pathwayMaintain abstinence from narcotics
µ receptor agonists, intended to depress spinal cord and brain pain pathways and the cough reflexPostoperative outpatient analgesia, chronic pain, cough
Monoclonal antibody against IgEAsthma-allergy prophylaxis (Consider Steps 5-6)
Stabilize inactivated state of sodium channel, prevent high frequency firingPrevention of generalized tonic-clonic, partial, and absence seizures
Stabilize inactivated state of the sodium channel/prevent high frequency firing or bind γ regulatory subunit of voltage-gated calcium channelsNeuropathic pain
µ/δ/κ receptor competitive antagonist, blocks all effects of endogenous opioids and narcoticsNarcotic overdose
