Video Description

Documentary about the risks of prescription drugs abuse. It is estimated that 20 percent of people in the United States use prescription drugs for nonmedical reasons. This behaviour is becoming more and more common and the number of people who are addicted to prescription drugs is increasing. It is not clear why it is happening. Probably, it is due to an increase in the prescription of these drugs. Moreover, this kind of drugs are very easy to buy without a prescription through online pharmacies, so sometimes prescription drugs are easier to get than street drugs. Some people think that these drugs are safer than street drugs because the doctor tells some people that they have to take them. But they are only safe for those who really need them. The doctor gives the patients important information about the safe use of these prescription drugs: which is the right dose and how exactly they have to take it. The doctor also informs about the side effects and can monitor patients.
