Toxicology for pharmacists addresses toxic effects of exogenous substances, especially medicines, on the living organism. First, the general principles will be explained (basic concepts, toxicokinetics, general principles of poisoning therapy, the most important antidotes, etc.). The special toxicology will focus on drug-induced organ toxicity (cardiovascular, respiratory, hepatotoxicity, etc.), and also on the toxicity of the most common addictive substances including ethanol.
