Medication Safety

Everyone needs to be aware of the potential dangers of misusing prescription medications. Here is a link to information that can enhance medication safety among college students. One way people misuse prescription drugs is taking a drug prescribed for another person. While it may seem harmless, it is risky and it is also illegal, for both the person taking the drug(s) and the prescription holder, if that person knowingly gave it to them. This is known as Altruistic Medication Sharing.
