Colloquially, all medicines are referred to as medicines. According to the classic understanding, this means agents and active substances (substance compositions) that serve to treat or prevent diseases. In addition, in modern medicine, active ingredients that are used in the context of diagnostics are also included in medicinal products. Many medicines not only have the desired effect, but also harbor the risk of side effects, which means that a benefit-risk assessment must be made when using them. In addition, important details must be observed during use in order to achieve the desired effect and to minimize the risk of side effects. The instructions in the package leaflet should therefore be given urgent attention and, if necessary, the doctor or pharmacist should give you precise instructions. (fp)
