About This Quiz

It's time to play pharmacist in the ultimate medication match quiz on the internet. Have you ever thought you could be a pharmacist, or even a doctor, prescribing people medication or any other profession along those lines? Well, now might be the time when you get to test whether you've got what it takes to do that or not.

We have medications that relieve allergies, relieve pain, help with diabetes, arthritis, STDs like Hepatitis C, opiate addiction and just about every malady under the sun. We have over the counter and prescription medications. And we have medicines that aren't just in the pill form. 

If you think you've got what it takes to play doctor or pharmacist like a pro, get started on this quiz. Will you end up making your patients feel better or will they be rushed to the emergency room, in a worse predicament than before?
