We need to classify the drugs in different ways because of-

  • Pharmacological effect

This classification provides doctors with the whole range of drugs available for the treatment of a certain type of problem

  • Drug action

The action of drugs on a particular biochemical process

  • Chemical structure

This classification provides a range of drugs sharing common structural features

  • molecular targets

 Drugs have some common structural features may have the same mechanism of action on the targets. Hence it is the most useful classification for medicinal chemists
