  • The Food and Drug Administration now requires the manufactures of prescription stimulants to warn users of the cardiovascular problems that could be associated with the use of these types of medications.
  • Animal studies indicate that animals will work more persistently at pressing a bar for cocaine than for any other drug, including opiates.

If the animal survives in such studies, it will return to the task of obtaining more cocaine.
  • About 1 in 10 teens uses cough syrup or cold medicine to get high, including cough syrups containing codeine.
