A pharmaceutical drug, also referred to as medicine, medication or medicament, can be loosely defined as any chemical substance intended for use in the medical diagnosis, cure, treatment, or prevention of disease.

A sampling of classes of medicine includes:

  •       Antipyretics: reducing fever (pyrexia/pyresis)
  •       Analgesics: reducing pain (painkillers)
  •       Antimalarial drugs: treating malaria
  •       Antibiotics: inhibiting germ growth
  •       Antiseptics: prevention of germ growth near burns, cuts and wounds

Medical cannabis
