This paper analyzes theproblems, focusing on how they affect people's health, healthcare systems, and the pharmaceutical sector. The study focuses on the Amravati District in Maharashtra, India, where concerns regarding public health interventions and regulatory frameworks are raised by a rise in prescription drug usage. The study looks at the prevalence, underlying causes, and effects of misuse in order to pinpoint trends, contributing elements, and the size of illegal sales. The interaction of socioeconomic factors, cultural influences, and healthcare accessibility is explored to provide insight into prescription drug misuse in the local environment.The global context explores how prescription drug abuse is recognized by the World Health Organization, with a focus on the risks associated with addiction, overdose, and negative health outcomes.The influence of COVID-19 on the pharmaceutical sector is discussed in the research, with an emphasis on the rising usage of telemedicine and the greater reliance on online platforms.
