Dear Doctor, my boyfriend seams to have a prescription

Customer Question

Dear Doctor, my boyfriend seams to have a prescription medicine problem. He abuses drugs and I don't know what to do. His Doctor prescribe him stilnox and he took tree of them at once. I managed to find the pills and throw them in the bin. No I found out he is taking Avodart, which is 3 tablets weekly but he is taking something like 10 weekly. I don't know what other drugs he is taking and I don't know if I should try and contact his doctor and let him know he is abusing the drugs. If you can help me would be much appreciated.
