Medications can help with easing or stopping symptoms from both minor and major health conditions. They can do anything from help cure a cold, as well as help ease the pain for a cancer patient. Medications can come in a number of different forms.

One type is liquid medicine. In liquid medicine, the medicine ingredients are added to a liquid. Out of all the types, this is the easiest to absorb. Oftentimes, flavors like orange and berry are added for taste. Another type of medicine is tablets. They can come in round or oval shapes. The medicine ingredients are pressed together and form the shape.
