Prescription Medication Abuse

A Prescribed Addiction

Doctors and psychiatrists have been around as a profession for centuries, although they came in different shapes and forms over the years. Some of the earlier stages of doctors had very interesting techniques at treating certain diseases and discomforting pains ??? such as headaches ??? to such an extent, that they were seen as a bad influence for the community they tried to serve. Luckily, we are past all of that, and we find ourselves in an era where a doctor, or a psychiatrist, would give you prescription medication for what they have found to be the problem with your body or mind.

Even though this medication might prove to be effective, sometimes people develop a tendency to over-use it, which then becomes an addictive substance to their bodies. In most cases, the medication turns out to be intended for pain relief. Although there are many different forms of prescription medication abuse, it is always good to be vigilant about medication usage on your own behalf, before worrying about the people around you.

The Basic Forms of Prescription Medication Abuse

Although it is easy to buy medication over the counter, it is quite difficult to convince a professional practitioner to write up a prescription for medication your body does not need, but craves for. Finding a person that would simply go to the doctor and tell them specifically which pills would make them feel better, might be harmless in the case of someone that knows exactly what their body needs to get back to a healthy state ??? in which case the doctor will confirm everything and give that person the right prescription.

But, what happens when a person insists on certain prescription medication being prescribed to them by their practitioner, with the doctor not able to confirm the need for them? This is where prescription medication abuse comes through in its most basic form. It might be something as severe as a shoulder pain resulting from a sports injury, or something as simple as a headache that drives a person to taking way more pills way too often, leading them on the road to addiction and substance abuse.
