Schepis, Ty S.; Krishnan-Sarin, Suchitra
Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, v48 n8 p828 Aug 2009
A study found that adolescents who recently acquired medication by buying it had the worst risk profile among all medications classes in terms of concurrent substance use and the severity of prescription misuse. It is hoped that the findings could help identify subgroups of adolescents prescription misusers who are most vulnerable to consequences of substance use and drugs misuse.
