Basically there are two reasons for the different forms that medicines are given in. The first purpose is the significance of convenience for the patient while the second purpose focuses more on the necessity of speed. On some instances, both factors are equally important while at other times, one factor eclipses the importance of the other one.

The different ways through which medicines enter the human body for the sole purpose of providing a cure are many. The first one is done orally, that is, through the mouth- such medicines come in the form of capsules, tablets or syrups. Secondly, medicine could be inhaled in the form of gases, fine aerosols and in some occasional instances an eminently fine form of powder. Medicines could also be given through injections, intramuscularly or intravenously. Other forms of medicines include solutions, powders and creams, which are applied on the external surface of the skin.
