Prescription drug use has increased in our nation by some reports, 300-400% in the last 10 years (NIH, 2014). Do you feel doctors over prescribe prescription medications? As a nation - have we become too reliant on RX drugs? What are some of the pros and cons of prescription drug usage? I need to cite my sources so in APA so if you can be so kind to write down where you found the info

    its good question, have you seen an increase of drug prescriptions? because i can give you my opinion and say yes, in fact overdose amounts to were people are taking the "prescribed" drugs as a "stress-relief"

    I don't really have much of an opinion on this. It might help to look up over prescription of antibiotics also the negative effects of cholesterol drugs on the environment

    I have not seen the study this question is citing, I do believe there should be strict guidelines to prevent over prescription because of the environmental effects. Who is to say though that maybe doctors are simply diagnosing more illnes in patients as medical technology improves. This is an issue that is kind of hard to pick a side on at least that is my view, the only thing that can rectify said problem is the development of rapid testing methods. I am just rambling though

    Um, I believe they are. My dad got some prescriptions and he was a nurse before so he caught it. They gave him like 10 tablets extra...
