AS Edexcel Drugs used 4 CVD

Hope you like it. :D

Some of the things for remembering the side effects (optional) are a little bizarre I must admit,but if it helps you get some marks ,then I suppose it s worth it.

Any improvement/suggestions are welcome.

Feedback would be great.

(for the from 2008 Edexcel AS Bio course)
