Drug New PYC inducers/inhibitors mnemonic...

I made a new mnemonic for the CYP inducers/inhibitors because the ones that I've found and the one that is in FA didn't make sense to me and were to hard to remember. Let me know what do you think about it:


arbie "Queen Grace" Ripped John's new Python for Carbs and Alcohol"

Barbie = barbiturates
Queen = quinidine
Grace = griseofulvin
Ripped = rifampin
= John's wort
Python = phenytoin
Carbs = carbamazepine
Alcohol = chronic alcohol use


"Prophylactic ECG for the Acutely SICK elderly"

Prophylactic = protease inhibitors (ritonavir, indinavir, nelfinavir, saquinavi)
ECG = erythromycin, cimetidine, clarithromycin, chloramphenicol, grapefruit juice

Acutely = acuter alcohol use
SICK = sulfonamides, isoniazid, cimetidine, ketoconazole

Well, there it is...

Suggestions are always welcome.

I also came across this:

Barbiturates, Rifampin, and Carbamazepine induce p450 because they are very sharp that they are good stimulatory tools...


How about Griseofulvin and Alcohol?

Like ALCOHOL, a full bottle of VIN (french wine) can let your spirit go and rise. Griseofulvin - "Go & rise"

Phenytoin is not sharp. Why can it induce P450?

(Phenytoin - sounds like "Funny looking coin")
Cause the Funny Looking Coin is very amusing, it can keep you up all the time!

I found these funny. After reading it, I couldn't forget that those drugs above are inducers!
