Abstract: There are various roles which the pharmacist can play from the point of manufacture to the time the drug is taken by the patient, hopefully at the right time and in the right dose. However, Prof. D'Arcy added 'drug' is a four-letter word. It is preferable to use the word 'medicine' because all medicines are drugs but not all drugs are medicines. This message must reach the general public. Often patients when asked as to whether they take drugs, they say "no". On the other hand when asked whether they take medicines, they may come up with quite a list.
