Event Details

National studies and published reports indicate that the abuse of over-the-counter (OTC) drugs to get high is a growing concern—particularly among teens. Each and every gas station in the U.S. sells the same arsenal of exotic and occasionally, life-threatening drugs. Many of these drugs are vague in their instructions, ingredients, and mortality rate. Teens view abusing OTC and prescription drugs as safer than using street drugs. Understand how to identify some of the pharmacologic and toxicologic properties of some of the common drugs that can be purchased at your local gas station, along with steps in the management of the common toxicities seen with these medications.
