Categorises refer to different classes (or groups) we can put different drugs. Drugs can be divided into the following groups or categories:

  1. Legal drugs

These are drugs that are not common but which we can use if prescribed (given to us) by a doctor. The drug seller will not sell such drugs if the buyer does not present the prescription form (the card or paper where doctor wrote the drug). Examples of legal drugs are Valium 5 and Augmentin.
