    Post Medicine ??

    Dear teacher
    I have a question about " medicine " .
    I'm wondering if the word " medicine " is countable noun or uncountable noun ??
    Can I put "s" at the end of this word when it functions as the plural ?
    Thank you very much for your help.
    Warm regards.

    If you're talking about one drug, then it is uncountable, but if you're talking about various drugs, it can be countable. However, it tends to be uncountable.
