Prescription medicine abuse directory

Drug abuse isn't just about illicit drugs such as marijuana or cocaine. Legal medicines with legitimate uses can be abused -- meaning they're taken by someone other than the patient or in a manner or dose other than what's recommended. Follow the links below to find BootsWebMD's comprehensive coverage about prescription drug abuse, how it occurs, how to treat it and much more.
