Guys - do you also find this about the pharm questions on the USMLE? You know that you're going to prescribe a SSRI for this patient. You for some reason have forgotten say that fluoxetine is an SSRI (its a hypothetical - go with me here) but in the answer choices there is a drug that you've never heard of (Meprobamate.) So you pick it - and get the question wrong...

Anyone else have this problem? I'm thinking maybe I'm going to make a huge list of all the drugs on the USMLE and then when I do my step 2 and 3 all the drugs in the world and spend a year memorizing exactly what they do... :( Just kidding - had to let out some frustration....

:)
