Drug Side Effects

Drug side effects are some of the heavy prices one pays for drug abuse and addiction. Drug addiction and abuse is an ever increasing epidemic in the United States. People are abusing not only street drugs (Heroin, Cocaine, Crack, Meth, Ecstasy, and Marijuana), but prescription drugs as well (Valium, Percocet, Hydrocodone, OxyContin, Vicodin, Xanax and Ritalin). The drug side effects of the above mentioned substances range from mild itching to comas and death.
When using drugs, legal or illegal, it is important to know the possible drug side effects. This information can help in preventing overdose, medical complications, as well as provide information on any changes that you or someone you know may be experiencing due to drug abuse or addiction.
