Drugs have a huge impact on our health.
In many cases, we will know that we are taking a drug if the side effects are obvious, such as a fever or a headache.
But there is also a huge amount of uncertainty surrounding these drugs, and it is a huge problem for us to know what we are getting.
That’s why the government set up a National Drugs and Drug Dependence Advisory Group (NDDAG), which aims to inform the public about the dangers of drug use.
This week, the NDDAG published a report which looks at how we know what drugs are being used, how we can tell if we are on a dangerous drug and how to avoid taking them.
This is important information, but it’s not always easily accessible, so this article looks at the research to help people avoid taking a dangerous medication.
What drugs are on the market?
There are many types of drugs, including some that are only available in prescription, some that you can buy in pharmacies and some that people can purchase online.
Here’s what we know about some of the most popular drugs, how they are used and the side-effects.
What you need to know about the drugs you take:Some drugs are illegal or are only sold over the counter and are classified as ‘high risk’ or ‘low risk’ drugs.
There are also some drugs that are banned in some countries, and some drugs are restricted to certain classes of medicines.
Drugs that are restricted can also be more expensive.

These include some that don’t need to be prescribed and are used for pain relief, as well as some for people who are allergic to the medication.
These medicines can be a powerful alternative to prescribed medication and can be very expensive.
Some drugs can also have side-effect profiles that are different to the ones prescribed.
A drug called lorazepam, which is prescribed for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, can have severe side- effects, including seizures and paranoia.
It can also lead to dangerous side-reactions when used at high doses.
A common type of painkiller is fentanyl, which can cause severe liver damage, as can morphine, which affects the respiratory system.
There are a range of other drugs that can cause serious side-events, including prescription opioids and tranquilisers.
Drugs can also cause serious reactions to certain medicines, which are commonly used to treat respiratory infections and coughs.

Many of the side effect profiles that can occur can be managed with medicines that have been approved for use in the UK.
But they can also need to take extra steps to ensure they are safe.
The NDDIG report said that the use of drugs that have not been approved by the government, like the drugs we are looking at, should not be undertaken unless the risk of an adverse reaction is so great that it is in the public interest.
Drug side-Effect ProfileThe following are the most common side-event profiles of drugs currently in the NHS.
Read all the side reactions to drugs you are taking here.
Common side-experiences:Dizziness or tingling in the chest or limbsCommon symptoms:Chest pain, fever, coughCommon side effects:Feeling sick, nausea, headache, shortness of breath, chest pain, muscle spasmsCommon cause:Over-the-counter medicines like ibuprofen, naproxen or acetaminophenCommon side actions:Depression, anxiety, anxiety disorders, panic attacksCommon cause and effect:The side effects can be caused by many drugs and the use can be difficult to identify.
The drugs we’re looking at can cause many different side-actions, and a good rule of thumb is that you should always tell your doctor if you are concerned about taking a medicine.
How to tell if you’re on a drug?
To be clear, a drug can have many different effects and not all of them are immediately obvious.
This can make it difficult to know whether you are on drugs that may be harmful.
To help you decide if you should take a drug, the following is a quick guide on what to look for.
A) The side-chain – the section between the drug molecule and the outer ring of the drug that makes up the active ingredient.
B) The ‘first messenger’ – the part of the chain that binds to the drug receptor.
This is a part of your body that helps drugs bind to other parts of the body.
If you have an allergic reaction to a drug or medication, it could be a sign that your body is reacting to it, too.
C) The last messenger – the chemical that attaches to the receptor that makes the drug act.
The last messenger is called a ‘molecule’, and it’s made up
