Basic Pharmacology is focused on obtaining fundamental information regarding interaction between drug and biological system (organism). The subject is divided into two basic areas: (1) general pharmacology, which is focused on the general aspects of the interaction between chemical substance (drug molecule) and is subdivided on the pharmacokinetics which studied mentioned interaction from the time point of view e.g. fate of the drug in the body and pharmacodynamics which studied the effect and mechanism of the effect of the drug in the body), and (2) special pharmacology, where students learn about the effects of basic pharmacological groups of pharmacs on organism (e.g. Analgesics, Anestetics, Sedatives, Hypnotics, Sympatomietics, Sympatolytics, Parasympathomimetics, Parasympatholytics, etc.).
