Prescription drugs are strong medicines that should be used carefully.
If you use prescription drugs in too high doses or for non-medical reasons, they can be as dangerous as illegal drugs. That is why you need a prescription from your doctor to buy the medication legally.
Misuse of prescription drugs is a serious public health problem in the United States. A National Institute on Drug Abuse report found that 9.5 million people misused prescription opioid painkillers, stimulants, and tranquilizers in 2017. People often misuse prescription drugs to experience their pleasurable effects, and many prescription medications are highly addictive.
Some of the most addictive medicines contain sedatives, stimulants, opioids, and benzodiazepines. Abusing these medications can lead to substance use disorder, meaning you may feel unable to stop taking the drug despite its harmful effects.
If you are struggling with prescription drug addiction, it may seem like recovery is an unattainable goal. But with the proper support, it is possible for anyone.
