In pharmacology, it is“a chemical substance used in the treatment, diagnosis, cure, or prevention of disease or otherwise it is used to augment physical or mental well-being”. Drugs may be prescribed for a limited duration or on a regular basis for chronic disorders. There are also some drugs that can cause habituation and addiction.
