The pHARMING EFFECTS of Prescription Drug Abuse

MORE - Taking more of a prescription drug than you're supposed to

NOT YOURS - Taking a prescription drug that was not prescribed for you

JUST POOR - Taking a prescription drug for a reason other than you're supposed to

 

FACTS:


Unintentional drug poisonings (over 90% of which involve prescription medications) are the second leading cause of accidental death in the U.S.

It's a federal offense to possess a medication like Vicodin, OxyContin, Xanax, Valium, Rialin or Adderall that is not prescribed to you

No matter the reason of use, prescription drugs should be used only under the supervision of a medical professional
