Therapeutic indication
A health product is used to treat or prevent a medical condition; its therapeutic indication shows how it should be used and the population for which it is intended. For example, ibuprofen is indicated for reducing fever and treating pain or inflammation caused by many conditions such as headaches, toothaches, back pain, arthritis, menstrual cramps or minor injuries.
