A pill can kill. 2.4 million Americans used prescription drugs nonmedically for the first time within the past year, which averages to approximately 6,600 initiates per day.

Abdominal distention and bloating. Constipation. Liver damage (especially prevalent in abuse of drugs that combine opiates with acetaminophen). Brain damage due to hypoxia, resulting from respiratory depression.
