Four ways to keep your teen from abusing prescription medications


The Indianapolis Star has a valuable article providing tips to parents who are worried about their teenage children abusing prescription medications. The article’s four tips:

  1. Monitor the prescriptions you have in your home.
  2. Secure your medicines.
  3. Dispose of old prescriptions.
  4. Communicate and set a good example for your child.

It’s nice to see a reasonable — and actually useful — article on this issue, rather than the hysterical attacks on licensed Canadian pharmacies that this topic often inspires.
