Classification of Pharmaceutical Drugs


We can classify pharmaceutical drugs in 2 broad categories:


Prescription Drugs Prescription Drugs are those drugs, which should not be used without the prescription of an authorized physician. These drugs can't be normally bought, unless prescribed. There might be a few prescription drugs that are sold with out prescription also, such as some Decongestants, Vasodilators, Anti-histamines etc.

Non Prescription Drugs Drugs that are sold without prescription are referred to as Non-Prescription Drugs or Over-the-counter drugs. These drugs are available locally. Some variants of a few Prescription drugs may be available without prescription also, such as Topical Antibiotics, Expectorants and Minoxidil (a type of Vasodilator), to name a few.

Pharmaceutical Drugs Administration
Administration of a drug means how the drug is delivered to a patient. Pharmaceutical drugs are available in the forms of pills, tablets, capsules and syrups. They can be taken orally or intravenously (into the blood through a vein). They are administered at regular intervals or all at once depending on doctors' advise.
