Medications Defined

Medications are more than just prescriptions

It’s easy to think of medication only as prescriptions that you can only get from your doctor or pharmacist. In fact, medication is much more broadly defined to include:

  • Drug samples
  • Over-the-counter drugs
  • Vitamins
  • Herbal remedies
  • Nutritional supplements
  • Dietary supplements
  • Vaccines
  • Respiratory therapy treatments
  • Radioactive medications
  • Diagnostic/contrast agents
  • IVs
