Prescription & Over-the-Counter Drugs: Overview

Modified on 2009/10/14 21:47 by admin
The Federal government defines a drug as any substance (other than food) intended for use in the diagnosis, cure, relief, treatment, or prevention of disease, or intended to affect the structure or function of the body. Drugs have drastically changed life in modern times. Many diseases and conditions that were once debilitating and deadly are now either unheard of or easily controlled through drug therapy. However, drugs have been around as long as man, albeit in different forms than today. Before the 20th century, most drug remedies were fashioned from naturally occurring plants and animals. Today, while natural sources are still useful, most of our drugs have synthetic origins.
