Pharmacology is the branch of biology concerned with the study of drug or medication action , where a drug can be broadly defined as any man-made, natural, or endogenous (from within the body) molecule which exerts a biochemical or physiological effect on the cell, tissue, organ, or organism (sometimes the word pharmacon is used as a term to encompass these endogenous and exogenous bioactive species). More specifically, it studies the interactions between a living organism and chemicals that affect normal or abnormal biochemical functions. If substances have medicinal properties, they are considered pharmaceuticals.
