Aspects of the Medications

Most medications work through complex pharmacological processes. They influence enzymes, receptors or the metabolism in order to develop their effect.

Correct use, dosage and compliance with the doctor’s instructions are essential for successful treatment, minimizing side effects and avoiding dependency.
