Health Medicine Pharmacology

Pharmacology is the study of drug mechanisms, from the point of administration, through absorption, to both the desired and side effects of the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API), or its formulation.  Any drug can be a poison, depending on the dose, and the study of excessive amounts is dealt with by the field of Medical Toxicology.
