Inhalant intoxication can create effects that include belligerence, impaired judgment, and impaired functioning, particularly in social settings.
From 1997 to 2007, inhalant drug rehab admissions represented 0.1%.
Among pregnant women aged 15 to 44 years, 4.0 percent reported using illegal drugs in the past month based on combined 2005 and 2006 NSDUH data. This rate was significantly lower than the rate among women aged 15 to 44 who were not pregnant (10.0 percent). The 2003-2004 combined rate of current illegal drug use among pregnant women (4.6 percent) was not significantly different from the 2005-2006 combined rate.
Nonmedical users of prescription type psychotherapeutic drugs are asked questions regarding how they obtained the drugs they recently used nonmedically. In both 2005 and 2006, over half of the nonmedical users of prescription type pain relievers, tranquilizers, stimulants, and sedatives said they obtained the drugs they used most recently "from a friend or relative for free." A follow up question added in 2006 asked these respondents where their friend or relative had obtained the drugs.
