Sarah Jarvis said that doctors have warning about the overuse of the drugs for years but face"so much pressure" from patients who are determined to get the medication.
She said that action is needed to help develop new classes of the drug, but warned against complacency from patients.
This isn't a situation that is 100 years from now," she said. "This is around the corner."
