The OG OD: Deadly Over-the-Counter and Prescription Overdoses

College campuses are full of drugs. While most of us immediately associate illicit substances when talking about drugs, there are plenty of over-the-counter and prescription medications that are readily available and equally (if not more) dangerous. Did you know that a Tylenol overdose can lead to a liver transplant? Or that too much aspirin can result in the need for dialysis? Is activated charcoal a thing of the past or should we still be giving it? In this lecture, we will discuss the symptoms, pathophysiology, and treatment of the most common overdoses that you'll encounter on a college campus. Come join for an entertaining hour of knowledge that you'll be able to use on your next shift!
