Commonly Abused Prescription Drugs
People can become addicted to a range of drugs that they are prescribed or that they obtain illegally. If you or a loved one have a dependence on a prescription drug that you are concerned has turned to addiction, it’s important to reach out to a medical professional as soon as possible. Prescription drug addiction treatment at an accredited facility like Palo Verde Wellness in Palm Springs can give you the best chance at a successful recovery.
The most commonly abused prescription drugs include:
Benzodiazepines are tranquilizers prescribed commonly to treat anxiety and insomnia. Recognizable name brands include Valium, Xanax, and Klonopin. Like many drugs, the more used, the higher the person’s tolerance, leading to addiction.
The opioids include morphine, oxycodone, hydrocodone, and fentanyl. They are prescribed to relieve pain – usually following an injury or surgery – but are easy to become addicted to. Even those who have not been prescribed the drugs can obtain them illegally to achieve the pain-numbing effects of the drugs.
Dexedrine, Ritalin, and Adderall are all stimulants. They are often prescribed to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). They assist in helping stay focused and can easily be overused by those seeking a quick and consistent fix for their issues. Stimulants are often obtained illegally, especially among students or those cramming to meet a deadline.
Nembutal is a brand-name sedative usually prescribed for those battling a sleep disorder. It is appealing to people it’s not prescribed because of its ability to relax the body and help with anxiety.
Sleeping pills, like the popular brand name Ambien, are highly abused. People think because they are non-narcotic depressants and they create such a calming effect, that using them won’t lead to overuse and addiction. Unfortunately, this is not true.
