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:
- Monitor the prescriptions you have in your home.
- Secure your medicines.
- Dispose of old prescriptions.
- 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.
