Medicine also called conventional, scientific, or mainstream medicine, especially when compared with alternative medicine or traditional medicine, is the field that mixes applied science with art in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease. It encompasses a variety of health care practices evolved to maintain and restore health by the prevention and treatment of illness in human beings. Contemporary medicine applies biomedical sciences, biomedical research, genetics and medical technology to diagnose, treat, and prevent injury and disease, typically through medication or surgery, but also through therapies as diverse as psychotherapy, external splints & traction, prostheses, biologics, pharmaceuticals, ionizing radiation among others.

Drug-Drug Interactions: Drug-drug interactions can involve prescription or nonprescription (over-the-counter) drugs. Types of drug-drug interactions include duplication, opposition (antagonism), and alteration of what the body does to one or both drugs. Acid-blocking drugs, such as histamine-2 (H2) blockers and proton pump inhibitors, raise the pH of the stomach and decrease absorption of some drugs, such as ketoconazole a drug for fungal infections. The names of medicines can often be confusing, as the same medicine can sometimes be called different things.
Many medicines have two names: The brand name given to a medicine by the pharmaceutical company it is developed by the scientific or generic name for the active ingredient of the medicine that is decided by an expert committee, AUST R medicines are assessed for safety, quality and effectiveness. They include all prescription only medicines and many over-the-counter products such as those for pain relief, coughs and colds and antiseptic creams, AUST L medicines can only contain pre-approved low-risk ingredients. They are used for minor health problems and are reviewed for safety and quality. They include sunscreens over SPF4 and many vitamins, mineral, herbal and homoeopathic products. A purpose must be included on the label, STORAGE CONDITIONS - labels must show how to store the product such as "Store below 30°C" which in most parts of Australia means room temperature. Some medicines must be stored in a refrigerator, EXPIRY DATE this is similar to the use-by date on food products at the supermarket. The medicine should not be used after this date because it can lose its effectiveness or become unsafe; batch number & company name & address - the batch number and name and address of the supplier must be on the labels and can be used to trace the medicine if a problem is found.
