This Chapter details some of the most important issues that should be considered if a person is planning to use drugs to achieve a peaceful, dignified death.
Specific issues such as preparation, administration, vomiting, and the shelf-life of a drug are common to all drugs, and an understanding of these issues reduces the chance of failure. This Chapter should be read in conjunction with the chapters that detail the use of particular drugs (Chapters 10 - 15).
