What is off label prescribing of medication?

In addition to what they're commonly designed to treat, many medications have other uses and can help with other conditions. When medications are given that way, it's called off label prescribing. This way of addressing health conditions can be extremely helpful for some patients. However, it can also lead to dangerous problems that would not have come about if the medication would have been used for the condition it was intended to treat. Some off label uses are more commonly accepted than others, as well, and that can lead a doctor to offer medications that may or may not be effective or come with serious side effects.
