Understanding Signs of Rx Addiction

There are many noticeable physical and emotional signs associated with Rx addiction. For example, a person struggling with an addiction may begin to become distant or defensive of changes in their behavior. They may start to sweat, shake, or feel nauseous if a dose of the prescription is missed. Emotionally, you will likely notice an increase in your anxiety if you cannot access your drug of choice.

Why Rx Addiction Is on the Rise

Similar to other addictions, there is no one simple answer as to the reason behind the rise of prescription drug addiction. In many cases, the addiction begins with a prescription for a narcotic as a result of an injury. For example, if you underwent some type of surgery, your doctor may prescribe you painkillers to reduce the pain. However, these medications should only be given when they can be closely monitored because they are highly addictive. Sadly, once an addiction develops, some patients travel to different doctors to sustain their addiction.

The Most Abused Rx Medications

The prescription medications that are commonly abused fall into different categories. For example, sedatives such as certain anxiety or sleeping medication are highly addictive if used for an extended period. Although there are some short-term benefits, if the drug is used indefinitely, there could be severe breathing issues if taken in large doses.

Pain killers, such as oxycodone or Percocet, are also examples of prescription medications that are widely abused. While a doctor may prescribe them to a client in severe pain, they are only designed to be used for a set time frame. Unfortunately, if a person becomes addicted to this type of medication, using the drug may vary from taking it in pill form to injecting it to receive a more direct effect.

Dangers of Rx Addiction

Without question, one of the leading physical dangers associated with an addiction to prescription medication is death. If you are in the throes of addiction, one pill may seem similar in appearance to another medicine. You may forget what pill you took an hour ago and take something twice, which could ultimately lead to an overdose. Other emotional dangers are connected to this form of addiction. For example, if your family or close friends begin to notice a shift in your behavior due to your addiction, they may start to want to distance themselves from you. The lack of these personal relationships could lead you further down the black hole that addiction causes.
