Prescription drugs are responsible for three of every four overdose deaths in Oklahoma. The figures show the number of 2012 overdoses in which each listed drug was present. Because some overdoses involve a combination of drugs, the totals overlap somewhat. All of the listed drugs were dispensed as prescription pharmaceuticals except methamphetamine and cocaine, most of which is manufactured illegally.
