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.

How It Is Consumed

Heroin consumption can either be done through injection, snorting or smoking. Each method of consumption causes the same level of dependency and addiction. Heroin looks like a white or brownish powder or in the form of a black sticky substance more commonly known as black tar heroin. Heroin is not usually consumed in its pure form and has to be cut with another powdery substance such as: dehydrated milk, starch, sugar or quinine.

It may also be cut with poisons such as strychnine which poses a health risk to addicts. Since they dont know the strength of the ingredient that the heroin has been cut with, they are at constant risk of overdose.

Heroin addiction may even lead to HIV transmission among addicts since they share needles or other equipment.

Cocaine is taken in a variety of forms and methods which make its dependency vary. It can be taken in powder form through the nose or dissolved in water and injected in the vein directly. This ingestion method makes its effect last for a longer time period of 15 to 30 minutes. If directly injected under the skin, called skin popping it lasts longer but increases risk of infection. Another form of cocaine known as crack is in the form of crystal which is usually smoked. Smoking leads to a stronger but shorter high.
