Branches of Pharmacology

The study of drugs, including their origin, nature, chemistry, uses and adverse effects and also includes the study of substances that bind to regulatory molecules and activate/inhibit normal body processes is known as pharmacology. Major divisions of pharmacology are pharmacokinetics (what body does to the drug) and pharmacodynamics (what drug does to the body). Pharmacokinetics deals with drug dose, routes of administration and absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion whereas pharmacodynamics deals with the mechanism of action, pharmacological effects, indication and contraindication of use and adverse effects of drugs.
