Prescription Drug use in the United States is an epidemic. If this seems like an overreaction, consider the fact that nearly 20 percent of people in the US have used Prescription Drugs for something not medically related. Not only is it a serious problem, but it continues to grow. One of the reasons it is such a big issue is because of how easy medications are to get.
Many people are buying them from others who have the prescription, they are stolen from pharmacies or doctor offices, they are bought off the streets, and many have legitimate conditions but are taking them in excess and abusing them. Prescription Drug abuse can also lead to addiction; most commonly in stimulants, narcotic pain killers, sedatives and tranquilizers. What is Drug Abuse? Drug abuse can be defined as...
Oxycontin is a prescription painkiller used for moderate to high pain relief associated with injuries, bursitis, dislocations, fractures, neuralgia, arthritis, lower back pain and pain associated with cancer. Oxycontin contains oxycodone, an opium derivative and is produced in a time released tablet.
Oxycontin commonly referred to as OC, OX, Oxy, Oxycotton and kicker, was introduced in 1996 and has had a rapid escalation of abuse. The tablets can be chewed, crushed and snorted like cocaine, crushed and dissolved in water and then injected like heroin.
The most serious side effect is respiratory depression, particularly dangerous for the elderly. Oxycontin addiction and demand has resulted in pharmacy robberies and forged prescriptions. The estimated number of people aged 12 or older with an oxycontin addiction has increased from 1.9 million in 2002, to 3.1 million in 2004. The largest increase occurred among young adults aged 18 to 25.

I'm now 27 weeks and I've been clean since the beginning of june. My baby is fine since I don't do anything anymore and the sonographer says she's developing perfect.

This is true. But how can I encourage someone to undergo recovery? I want to help others, especially those addicts that don't have family and friends to care about them.
That is extremely sad for those children but being an ex addict myself if I read this while trying to get sober I would be VERY upset!!! How dare u say that because someone chose to be an addict that they are stuck that way! That is SO far from the truth! An addict can get help and become clean and sober and live a great life and be a GREAT parent! I've done it and I am living proof that addicts can change, they just have to want to change!

I know what you mean I am addicted so much that I play every drawing, I can not go on without the thoughts that eventually I will win a big lottery. I don't know what s going to happen to me, I no longer function in society, I have become a recluse, I have no friends no life all that I do is wait for the next draw so I can play. I don't spend a lot of money but I ALWAYS have to have a few numbers
That is definitely incorrect. It does cause euphoria!! Both drugs do.
Unfortunately people underestimate just how addictive stimulants like Adderall are. Dopamine is a powerful neurotransmitter that other stimulants don't produce at such a high rate which is why I think drugs like Adderall can be lead to dependence. My personal experience with addiction was that just as much as drugs are part of it is the psychological state of the person taking the drugs are also is powerful component.
