You have probably seen warning labels on the products you use on a daily basis. You will find most products you buy in Louisiana carry a warning label. Some are very straightforward and helpful, such as a warning to use a chemical cleaner in a ventilated area. Others are odd and even comical, such as a warning to not put people in a dryer or to use a waffle iron only to cook food. One reason why so many products carry these labels is to protect the manufacturer from liability.

One problem that seems to occur way too often is an overprescription or overuse of medications, specifically, psychotropic drugs.
