The pharmaceutical industry discovers, develops, manufactures, and markets drugs or pharmaceuticals for use as medications to be administered to patients (or self-administered) with the goal of mitigating symptoms or disease conditions, vaccinating them, or alleviating symptoms of disease, surgery, or disease condition. Pharmaceutical firms may sell generic or brand-name pharmaceuticals and medical products. Pharmaceuticals have helped many individuals increase their life expectancy and quality of life. Medicines can cure, reduce symptoms, postpone disease onset, and prevent consequences. They frequently provide good value for money.
