Qué es la diferencia entre medicina y medicamento?
It looks like in English the word medicine is used more interchangeably to mean pills or the general field. This dictionary implies that "medicina" is the general field and Medicamento refers to the actual compounds that treat.
Medicina is the field of medicine and is a much more broad term than medicamento, which is specially used to identify pills or chemicals used in the treatment of an ailment.
But when youa re using "medicine"to refer to drugs? Is there a difference between "medicina"and "medicamentos""?
this is in a provider handbook and the sentence is somethign like '...to order your medicinas" OR 'medicamentos.."blah blah blah
and we can't deicde which to put or if there is a difference
