Effects of Prescription Medication Addiction

In most cases, addiction to prescription medication is the direct result of the medication being appropriately prescribed for legitimate medical problems. The person rarely had any preconceived plans to abuse the medication, but two factors come into play. The individual may experience some relief from the drug, in conjunction with experiencing the euphoric feeling produced by many prescription medications. Whether it is due to the reduction in pain or an elevation in pleasurable feelings, the person begins to take additional medication. This decision is usually made independent of the physician who prescribed the medication and before the person realizes it, they find themselves with a mental obsession regarding the medication and a craving for more.

People have also been known to take prescription medication to deal with emotional problems. The only thing most of these medications do for emotional problems are "mask or numb" the actual feelings. Although the person may not experience the feeling or focus on the problem at a particular moment, in most cases, the problem is just exasperated by not learning how to effectively cope with the particular issue.

Lastly, people have been found to mix alcohol with prescription medications to accentuate the feeling of euphoria. They like to refer to this mixture as a "cocktail". What this creates is the potential for an overdose and should be avoided at all costs.
