Prescription drug abuse is a medical condition characterised by the unhealthy consumption of prescription drugs due to the inability to control or cease usage, despite being aware of the negative effects on one’s health and life. While there is a near-limitless number of prescription drugs open to abuse, some of the most common include opioid analgesics, stimulants, and depressants. Worldwide, with the UK included, prescription drugs are among the most abused substances and represent a significant proportion of the leading risk factors for early death and poor health, particularly in certain age groups. With such a wide variety of prescription drugs open to abuse and a rife black market, prescription drug abuse poses a significant societal challenge.
