This opens ways for the possibility of patients misusing or abusing the pills.

Past studies have indicated that most painkillers abusers source them from friends and families who did not finish their dose. Maughan and his colleagues noted this during news release at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine and School of Dental Medicine.
