Caffeine is a drug found in coffee.


Drugs are medicines or addictive substances. Addictive substances are harmful and we should keep away from them. Medicines, however, can help us recover from illness but only if taken correctly. A doctor is qualified to prescribe drugs as medicine and must always be informed before taking a new medicine.

Some people are allergic to medicines (such as penicillin) and it's important to let health professionals know. There are drugs for almost every ailment ~ from a cold to hay fever to aches and pains ~ even to help you sleep at night.
