Jacksons death boosts public concern over prescription drug abuse risk

The massive media coverage around Michael Jacksons death has given a boost to public concern over the risks of prescription drug abuse, suggests a survey.


Washington, July 8 : The massive media coverage around Michael Jackson's death has given a boost to public concern over the risks of prescription drug abuse, suggests a survey.

According to the findings of The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP), Jackson's alleged prescription drug misuse has left patients asking more questions about the dangers involved.

"While circumstances surrounding Michael Jackson's cause of death are still speculative, the media attention has opened dialogue about the dangers of prescription drug abuse," ASHP president Lynnae M. Mahaney, M.B.A., FASHP said.

"Medications can make a tremendous difference for people suffering with chronic pain and these patients should seek treatment.

"However, these medications are extremely powerful and when used improperly they can cause serious harm, even death," she added.
