Headline

Misuse of prescription and over-the-counter drugs to obtain illicit highs: how pharmacists can prevent abuse

Comment

I didn't believe (because the manufacturer's literature seems to think it very unlikely) that Hyoscine Butylbromide can get through the blood-brain barrier) until I read the abstract to item 35 that the tablets can be processed to give a 'high'. Are pharmacies experiencing demand for this kind of use?
