On which of these would you find information about the pharmacology of a drug?


A PPI (patient package insert) is a document provided along with a prescription medication to provide additional information about that drug. The first section lists the brand name and generic name of the product. The other sections cover clinical pharmacology, indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions, adverse reactions, drug abuse and dependence, over dosage, dosage and administration, and how supplied. The clinical pharmacology section tells how the medicine works in the body, how it is absorbed and eliminated, and what its effects are likely to be at various concentrations.
