What Are the Signs of Prescription Drug Abuse?

Misuse of prescription drugs is no less dangerous than any other type of drug abuse. Most people may be able to identify the symptoms of alcoholism, but the telltale signs of prescription drug abuse are less familiar. As this video explains, you may be able to guess whether a person is abusing a type of prescription drug based on their behavior. Some of the most noticeable signs of prescription drug abuse include unusual mood swings, confusion, extreme drowsiness, clumsiness, poor judgment, and irritability. Other signs, such as gradual changes in appearance or seemingly uncharacteristic behavior, may be more difficult to judge.
