Anti-social behavior, shakiness, sweating, struggling to stay awake, and mood swings are examples of physical symptoms of addiction.

Why Rx Addiction Is on the Rise

Unfortunately, addictions to prescription medications is on the rise for several reasons. In many cases, a person becomes addicted to prescription medication almost on accident. If you suffer from an injury that causes you pain, your doctor may prescribe you a drug that will help to relieve that pain while your body heals. If your usage is not monitored correctly, there is a high possibility that you could develop an addiction reasonably quickly.

Once your addiction takes hold, you may try to turn anywhere just to feed your addiction. In cases like this, many people rely on obtaining their drug of choice using illegal methods.

The Most Abused Rx Medications

Prescription medication falls into different classes. The most readily abused prescription medications are opiates, narcotic drugs, stimulants, barbiturates, or benzodiazepines. Regardless of your drug of choice, these medications all have a specific effect on how you think and feel when you are using them. These mind-altering effects are what can make these drugs incredibly dangerous.

Dangers of Rx Addiction

It’s no surprise that the greatest danger associated with an addiction to prescription medication is death. Sadly, it’s relatively easy to lose track of the assortment of pills that a person struggling with addiction may have taken, making it easy to overdose. Unfortunately, there are many times that overdose can either lead to death or serious physical harm.

Additionally, an addiction to prescription medication can also harm the relationships you have with friends or loved ones. Once they sense that something is not right with your behavior or become aware of your addiction, you may start to notice they begin to become more distant, leading to heartache.
