What is the most

What is the most misused drug?


I think opioid painkillers are probably the most misused of all drugs, both by patients and doctors. People don’t know how to use them properly, and doctors often don’t know when to stop prescribing them.The good news is, we’re getting better at dealing with pain and other complications of chronic illness. And we’re finding better, safer ways to treat acute pain or stabilize severe illness. All of which means fewer people are getting addicted to opioids.The bad news is, our addiction crisis is expensive and deadly. But we’re making progress in tackling it. And we can still do more to save lives and money here in the U.S.
