CANTON TRUTH: Prescription Drugs More Deadly Than Cocaine, Heroin, Amphetamines

CANTON TRUTH: Prescription Drugs More Deadly Than Cocaine, Heroin, Amphetamines.

“The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has released data showing that at least half of all Americans take one prescription drug and one in six of us takes three or even more prescribed medications.”

Although this is an interesting and important story all by itself–I thought this quote from it was very interesting. The reason?  Because of stigma.  How many of us (Suboxone and Methadone patients) have been asked over and over “When you gonna get off that STUFF?”.  My answer is always “when you get off your FILL IN THE BLANK” you can say high blood pressure meds if you know the person takes them or antidepressants or thyroid meds.  This above quote shows that MOST americans shouldn’t be looking in our medicine cabinets if their own cabinet is filled!
