Pharmaceutical drug misuse presents when you take a medicine in a way that is different from what the doctor prescribed.

It could be taking a medicine that was prescribed for someone else, taking a larger dose than you are supposed to, taking the medicine in a different way than you are supposed to. Prescription drug misuse can have serious medical consequences; join us in this information session to find out more.
