Misuse of Prescription Pain Relievers

Prescription pain relievers (including narcotics, depressants and stimulants) are safe and effective when used correctly for a medical condition and under a doctor's supervision. But they can cause serious side effects if not used correctly. Incorrect use or use for non-medical reasons can lead to abuse, addiction and even death.
