In the past, we've talked about ibuprofen abuse, but narcotic abuse is a far more severe problem because of the addictive tendencies. Ibuprofen, acetaminophen, and other products like that certainly can be overused, but when you talk about a narcotic, there is an additional fact that you're not just doing it for pain, you're doing it for the feeling from the narcotic. It's important that abuse of narcotics is minimized. The way you do this, of course, is only taking what your doctor prescribes and seriously questioning how much you use.
