This is the major system of medicine of the modern times, which originated in the west and has, to its credit, the maximum amount of research and development and pharmaceutical support. It is a continuously progressing system with research and development going on all the time. It is of considerable help in alleviating suffering in numerous disease conditions.
However, many diseases are yet to be conquered by Allopathy. Also, while successful treatment can be given for many diseases, only the bothering symptoms can be relieved in many other diseases. Another significant drawback is the high level of side effects of many of the medications. One has to be alert to this fact and necessary precautions must be taken through expert guidance.
This system is entirely opposite of homeopathy, which has a different approach to diseases and remedies.
