by Kim Etingoff
The government has approved them. You don't need a prescription. You can get them at practically any supermarket. So obviously over-the-counter medications can't be dangerous, right?

You'll learn what drugs are most misused, the effects of misused over-the-counter medications, and what the government is doing to stem the problem.
