Abuse Of Prescription Meds Among Teens Greater Than Most Illegal Drugs
Date:11/8/2010

art failure.  

Sharing prescription medication is legal - Using someone's prescribed medications, many of which are considered controlled substances without a doctor's prescription, is harmful and definitely illegal. Only a doctor or pharmacist can legally give you these medications.

Prescription drugs are not as addictive as street drugs - Actually, some prescription drugs pose an even greater risk for addiction than street drugs. This is precisely why they are regulated by doctors and prescribed for specific amounts of time or conditions.

FACTS

Physical Effects–Because prescription meds can become highly addictive, prolonged use of medications can result in uncontrollable bodily functions such as, diarrhea, urination, thirst, drowsiness, rashes, or even death.

Social Effects–Because the physical effects can become excessive, this can cause a teen to lose focus in school or activities, get out of touch with friends and family, or become less motivated in their own personal appearance or reputation.

Legal Effects–Being charged with possession or the distribution of drugs can have lasting effects on your reputation and background, which can follow a young teen for the rest of their life.

"Our society has become so accustomed to taking prescription pills to cure whatever ails them, that many people, both teens and adults, believe these medications are less harmful.  Teens particularly have no fear experimenting with prescription medications," said Sanford Silverman, MD, a pain & addiction specialist and President-elect of the Florida Society of Interventional Pain Physicians (FSIPP). "As a result our medicine cabinets have inadvertently become the neighborhood drug source."
