  • its not like once the women finds out shes pregnant she decides to start using drugs to hurt her unborn child! The women are already addicted and once your addicted and you have an unplanned pregnancy most doctors would agree that in comparison the results could be much more damaging and sever if the mother gets thrown in jail and forced to quits cold turkey, sending herself and fetus into full withdrawal. Doing so, depending on where you are at in the trimester can instantly cause dealth/...

    The Downside of Methadone Addiction and Treatment

  • Prescription drugs or any drug for that matter will effect different people differently. The most common behavior I've seen of those abusing prescription drugs is that they're the ugliest when they're not on the drug. Very moody and short tempered.

  • I know this is an old post but I just wanted to say thank you to you if by some chance you ever come back to see it. Your words have reminded me that the peace I may feel in the short term from prescription drugs meant for other purposes, isn't worth the long term hell I would likely face by taking them to feel that peace. I hope you are well, as I hope the original poster and her sister are too.
