According to a new study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, sharing prescriptions is commonplace in America. While it’s most common for women 18-44, overall 27% of men and 29% of women admit to sharing medications. Allergy medicines and pain-killers were the most common offenders. Clearly this is risky behavior with unknown drug interactions and side-effects posing a threat to any prescription sharers. Is this something you would consider doing or that you’ve heard of taking place?
