Pharmacodynamics is the study of how drugs have effects on the body. The most common mechanism is by the interaction of the drug with tissue receptors located either in cell membranes or in the intracellular fluid.

Pharmacodynamics is defined as the study of the biochemical and physiologic effects of drugs and the molecular mechanisms by which those effects are produced. In short, pharmacodynamics is the study of what drugs do to the body and how they do it.

Pharmacodynamics (PD) is the study of the biochemical and physiologic effects of drugs (especially pharmaceutical drugs). The effects can include those manifested within animals (including humans), microorganisms, or combinations of organisms (for example, infection).

PHARMACODYNAMICS: Dosage & Drug Effects (p.1) “pharmacokinetics” – what the body does to the drug “pharmacodynamics” – what the drug does to the body 1. Dose-response curve (DRC) For a single dose, describes the effect of a single dos e of drug over time More commonly, describes the effect of multiple doses of increasing drug amounts

Pharmacokinetics influences the decided route of administration for a specific medication, the amount and frequency of each dose and its dosing intervals. Pharmacodynamics, on the other hand, is the study of how a medicine acts on a living organism.

and pharmacodynamics. In the simplest terms, pharmacokinetics attempts to describe what the body does to the drug, and pharmacodynamics describes what the drug does to the body. In studies of mental illnesses, pharmacodynamics reveals the molecu-lar substrates of drugs that influence mental states, and hence molecular and cellular
