Misuse Of Prescription Drugs: A South Asia Perspective (2011)
PDF File Size: 1.97 MB | Download   
The human brain and body are among the most complicated and intricately-organised systems in the universe and many of their neurochemical signaling systems orchestrate multiple functions. Therefore, pharmacological attempts to selectively intervene in one feature of a disease are typically fraught with unwanted effects elsewhere. The focus of this report is the misuse of pharmaceuticals (both narcotic and psychotropic), which in most of South Asia are largely available through pharmacies.
