I Abuse Over-the-counter Medicine

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 39 People

    Lately...

    Not because I want to, but because they seem to be working better than my perscribed medication has been. Lately I have been taking over the counter sleeping pills, to help me get through the night, or the day, or both. I know that it might do more damage later on in my life, but...

    I Was Addicted To Triple C'S

    I went through a dangerous addiction to Triple C's. For those of you who aren't familiar, triple C's are cough and cold pills that are sometimes also referred to as "jiggers" or "skittles". It is something that I am very ashamed of, but I really feel like sharing my experience...

    Not As Much Anymore...

    ...Not because I gave everything up but because I get pretty good scripts now. It was Benadryl for me.  I was young enough that I'd never gotten high before and didn't realize that that's what I was doing...  I jus really liked taking it when I was sick.  Specifically how...

    C's and Mucinex, I take them too much. Me and my friends would have this thing we called the C war and we'd all take C's non-stop to keep the trip going to see who could last the longest. I took them 3 days in a row. I ended up taking a fuckload of pills within 3 days and ended...
