The most widely self-medicated substances are Over-the-counter drugs and diet supplements. Self medicating psychology with Psychoactive drugs is using alcohol, comfort food, and other forms of behaviour to alleviate symptoms of distress in mental health, anxiety and stress which also includes mental illnesses and psychological trauma, as a serious detriment to physical and mental health if motivated by addictive mechanisms.
