Medicines are active substances and combinations of active substances that are used for the treatment or prevention of diseases or for diagnostic purposes. Furthermore, substances that specifically intervene in the processes of our organism, but have no direct therapeutic purpose, are also to be referred to as medicinal products (e.g. birth control pills). The dispensing of medicinal products is subject to strict legal requirements in this country for reasons of patient safety and pharmacies have a special responsibility. They take on not only sales, but also advice on important details of use and possible risks such as side effects, contraindications and interactions with other medications. In case of doubt, it is also advisable to ask the doctor specifically about the contraindications and / or interactions of different medicinal products - especially if several diseases are treated with medication at the same time.
