is medicine making me and my family sick?

Antibiotic resistance has been making headlines for a while now, but are there other medicines that are being overprescribed too? what are they? and how can me and my family try to avoid them (if possible)

Hi Kiki

In my opinion antibiotics are the biggest problem by far. Some people misuse pain medication leading to "a lower pain threshold" or even dependence. And then there's the parents giving their kids meds like Stopayne syrup just to let them sleep faster...
