Most Consumers Unaware of Dangers in Mixing Alcohol and Common Drugs

For many people, the warnings for a medication can read like the fine print of a home mortgage. They’re lengthy, confusing, and mostly ignored.

That’s why the National Council on Patient Information and Education (NCPIE) marks each October as a chance to remind patients, healthcare providers, and caregivers about the importance of paying attention to warnings and not mixing medications with substances that can do harm. This October marks the NCPIE’s 32nd Talk About Your Medicine Month.
