Dangers of Medication Abuse
Prescription and over the counter drugs are especially dangerous when taken with alcohol or mixed with other drugs. Mixing certain drugs with alcohol can cause a person’s heart and breathing to slow down or even stop.
If you are taking painkillers, sedative, sleeping pills or anti-depressants, there is risk that you can easily become addicted.
