Over-the-counter Drugs

Over-the-counter Drugs

Author: Johanna Knowles, Ronald J. Brogan Format: Hardback Release Date: 08/07/2020

For the past several years, over-the-counter drug abuse has been steadily on the rise. Heavy use has increased among students in middle school and high school. The number of emergency calls to poison control centers across the country has risen dramatically. Many young people have the impression that since these drugs are available in stores and can be bought by anyone, they must be safe. However, when taken in large amounts or over a long period of time, these drugs can have lasting, serious - even deadly - side effects. Over-the-Counter Drugs delves into the history, science, and prevalence of abuse of these drugs. It also explores why young people abuse drugs and provides information about addiction and treatment.
