Prescription drug abuse occurs when individuals use prescription medications outside of the way doctors and prescribing healthcare professionals intended. Prescription drug abuse or problematic use includes everything from taking a friend’s prescription painkiller for your backache to snorting or injecting ground-up pills to get high. This type of use typically results in prescription drug overuse and dependence on the drug. This can cause psychological changes, and lead to serious medical problems.
An increasing problem, prescription drug abuse can affect all age groups, including teens. Often, individuals who become addicted to prescription drugs begin taking the substance for a legitimate medical reason. They may not even realize they are becoming dependent on the drug until they attempt to stop using it and find that they experience withdrawal symptoms and side effects when they do so. In other cases, someone may take prescription medications recreationally for the “high” and find that regular use develops into an addiction. In either case, abusing prescription drugs is dangerous and can affect a person’s relationships, work life, physical health and mental health. In addition, mixing alcohol and prescription drugs can result in life threatening medical emergencies.
The most commonly abused prescription drugs include opioid painkillers, anti-anxiety medications, sedatives and stimulants. Common drugs that are overused include opioids, gabapentin, benzodiazepines, adderall, prescription painkillers, and more.
Individuals addicted to prescription drugs may have wildly different withdrawal symptoms depending on factors such as their age, drug of choice, substance abuse history, physical health, and mental health. These may range from mild symptoms to life threatening ones. Because of this, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to prescription drug detox and each case must be handled with a personalized medication protocol to ensure any side effects are effectively managed.
