Is Your Teen Abusing Cough Medicine?
Might your teenager be looking for ways to get high that you hadn't even thought of?

One of those ways may just be in your medicine cabinet.

Teen abuse of cough medicine has prompted pharmacies to put certain cough medications behind the counter.

However, if you keep those medicines in your medicine cabinet, your teen could be getting into them without you even knowing it.

Special guest, Dr. Melissa Arca, MD, shares ways to keep those and other medicines away from your teen... and away from temptation.
