  • Drug Overdose Facts
  • The misuse of prescription medications is most commonly reported to be unintentional; accidental overdoses generally result from the particular drug being overly prescribed or due to the unwitting ingestion by young children.
  • About 15 years ago, over three quarters of all heroin users injected the drug, although currently that number has shrunk to 65% as the number of individuals snorting heroin has grown.
  • Cocaine is generally not taken by mouth for recreational purposes, and dangerous reactions, including death, have occurred in people who swallow the drug to avoid police detection or border authorities.
  • GHB users will typically experience a sense of intoxication, muscle relaxation, loss of coordination due to weak muscle tone, loss of gag reflex, nausea, and difficulty concentrating.
  • Even in addicts who have used heroin for many years have been reported to overdose when they use too much of the drug or when they relapse after a period of abstinence.
