    Hello all,

    I am thinking along of the lines of:

    - Resulting from medical expertise
    - Resulting from medical know-how

    What do you think?

    I think it is rather "pharmaceutical" than "medical" but that might be a bit high-flown, though "expertise in pill-making" is certainly too "low-flown".

    Probably you know this,
    but just in case,
    the definition of "médicamenteux" (from the Littré)
    • Qui a la vertu d'un médicament. Aliment médicamenteux, substance nutritive et médicinale à la fois, comme la plupart des médicaments émollients.

    And to be honest, Lart01, now that I read your post.... I shall say that when I first saw the title of the thread I thought it would be a joke, or ironical sentence around "médicamenteux"....
