Over The Counter Drugs Treatment

Over-the-counter drugs, OTC for short, are drugs which can be bought at a store without an actual prescription. Those can be very beneficial but can also be abused. Even though they are harder to control since they are not in themselves illegal, there are still laws regarding their abuse. There are a lot of types of OTC drugs and brand names (such as Tylenol, Claritin, etc.) are many. And many of them are addictive and it is important that they get help in order to stop using those drugs.

The symptoms of OTC abuse are many since there are many types of over-the-counter drugs. These may sometimes include:

  • Drowsiness
  • Slight numbness
  • Euphoria

When people abuse thins such as Tylenol, they can fast become physically tolerant of the drug. This can after a while, become a very serious problem. So when one stops taking it, he can experience the following troubles:

  • Insomnia

  • Vomiting
  • Involuntary leg movements

There are drug rehab centers and various types of treatment which can help an individual through those symptoms in order to get back to a healthy life. But since there are various types of drug rehab programs it is important to find one that actually fits the individual and so that it helps recovery.

Marcel Gemme has been helping people struggling with addiction for over 19 years. He first started as an intake counselor for a drug rehabilitation center in 2000. During his 5 years as an intake counselor, he helped many addicts get the treatment they needed.

This was 15 years ago. Since then, Marcel has built two of the largest websites in the U.S. and Canada which reach and help millions of people each year. He is an author and a leader in the field of drug and alcohol addiction. His main focus is threefold: education, prevention and rehabilitation.
