What are medicinal drugs?

In this lesson, we will learn what drugs are and therefore what medicinal drugs are. We will learn about different examples of medicinal drugs, including painkillers, antibiotics and anaesthetics. Finally, we will apply our knowledge of medicinal drugs to different scenarios. For some people this will be a sensitive topic. If that applies to you, you may want to do the rest of this lesson with a trusted adult nearby who can support.
