Nonprescription medication abuse more common than perceived
from Medical News Today
Nonprescription drugs are just as probable to cause poisoning as prescription drugs, a new study suggests. The most common medications that warranted a consultation with the toxicologist were sleeping pills, muscle relaxants, opioid pain relievers and non-opioid relievers. In 2011, there were 35 deaths from medication overdose, 10 from opioids, and eight from non-opioid pain medication.
