  • Prescription medications require a doctor’s approval because they are stronger than over-the-counter. Your doctor will prescribe the best medicine for you based on your unique needs.
  • Pain medications, especially opioids, can be addictive and dangerous, so be sure to take them exactly as directed.
  • Never share medications. Not only are you breaking the law, but you are also putting lives at risk due to wrong dosages and harmful side effects.
