Abstract: A poster presentation regarding adolescents’ use of non-prescription analgesics. Introduction: The transition from childhood to adulthood is linked by a period when most individuals first begin to take responsibility for self-medicating minor illnesses and become more involved in managing chronic conditions. Several studies have indicated that adolescents gain knowledge about medicines, through consumption rather than before taking the medication, leading to potential risks. Aims: ● To examine the non-prescription use and self-administration of pain medication among young adults. ● To identify the pharmacist’s role in addressing misuse and misconceptions about medicines.
