A prescription drug is a drug that, by law, must be obtained from a licensed pharmacy (you cannot get it off the drug store shelves) and which cannot be legally obtained without a prescription from a doctor. There are thousands of different kinds of prescription drugs, which are used to treat myriad different ailments. Far too many to list here.
