Prescription Drug Dangers

There are numerous risks to be discussed with prescription medication abuse. The first of these is overdose. The leading cause of accidental death in the United States, this danger does not have any markers that can significantly determine who will be at risk. A wealthy housewife in the suburbs, an inner city teen, or a physician himself may be at risk for overdose on prescription drugs. Anyone can become an abuser of these medications, by the very nature of their legality, purposes and frequency of use in our culture.
