Misuse of prescription drugs means taking a medication in a manner or dose other than prescribed; taking someone else’s prescription, even if for a legitimate medical complaint such as pain; or taking a medication to feel euphoria (., to get high).* The term nonmedical use of prescription drugs also refers to these categories of misuse. The three classes of medication most commonly misused are: O pioids—usually prescribed to treat pain, C entral Nervous System [CNS] depressants (this category includes tranquilizers, sedatives, and hypnotics)—used to treat anxiety and sleep disorders, S timulants—most often prescribed to treat attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
OTC PPIs are marketed for the treatment of frequent heartburn under the brand names Prilosec OTC, Zegerid OTC, and Prevacid 24 HR. OTC PPIs are labeled for 14 days of use, and this treatment course may be repeated every 4 months, up to 3 times per year. FDA acknowledges that consumers, either on their own, or based on a healthcare professional's recommendation, may take these products for periods of time that exceed the directions on the OTC label. This is considered an off-label (unapproved) use, based on the directions of use for OTC PPIs. Healthcare professionals should be aware of the risk of hypomagnesemia if they are recommending use of OTC PPIs for longer periods of time than in the OTC PPI label. FDA believes that OTC PPIs carry very little risk of hypomagnesemia when used according to the package directions, and therefore the Drug Facts box for the OTC PPIs will not be changed to include the risk of hypomagnesemia.
