If I remember correctly, love is made up of different components, one of which is chemical. The other parts are psychological and biological I believe. The feeling you get from love is a chemical, all feelings are, when we feel different kinds of pleasure, different kinds of chemicals are released.
Example: endorphin:
"They are produced by the pituitary gland and the hypothalamus in vertebrates during exercise, excitement, pain, consumption of spicy food and orgasm."

So, is it possible to get rid of the feeling of love by taking some pills?
In theory it would be possible for a limited amount of time, but it would not affect the emotional and psychological aspects of love, only the physical feelings, like pleasure. Also, I don't think such a drug exists, and I'm not so sure it ever will.

No, jessie17 used the right word, chemical, not chemistry.
"A chemical reaction is a process that leads to the transformation of one set of chemical substances to another."

These chemical reactions happen throughout the human body all the time. A chemistry reaction isn't really anything at all, it's just improper English, it's poor grammar.
