Seven Seas describes the series' story:
Corporate drone Reiji is transported to a fantasy world, where he discovers that he can craft potions at a higher level than his rank should allow. Taking advantage of this, Reiji makes a tidy profit--enough to open his own drugstore. An elf who can't aim his bow? Give him some eye drops! A dragon who accidentally breathes fire? Cough syrup! Reiji's new relaxing life of making medicine for fantasy creatures is about to begin!
Kennoji began posting the story originally on the Shōsetsuka ni Narō website in 2016, and Hifumi Shobō's Brave Book imprint publishes the novels with illustrations by Matsuuni. Eri Haruno is serializing a manga adaptation on the Web Comic Gamma Plus service.
