It can be very easy to become addicted to prescription opiods.  These are not junkies, lying in a gutter.  They are professional business people who had back pain or pain after surgery and were given Vicodin, Percocet,  Oxy.  They are prescribed by physicians to relieve pain, but they are synthetically related to heroin.  http://www.cincinnati.md/articlepage_cn.aspx?cn-documentid=655130&query=women and addiction to prescription drugs&s=1&cat=con

 

Many of these people who become addicted are female because “higher levels of estrogen make women more susceptible than men to feeling a high from prescription opiods.” According to the November issue of Shape Magazine.   Many professionals believe that women are more vulnerable to this addiction because they seek help from physicians for pain more quickly than men.

 

These statistics are important to know because information is power.  Just because a doctor wants to prescribe a narcotic to you, doesn’t mean you have to take them.  Explore options of over-the-counter medicine first.  Try alternative healing practices such as acupuncture, natural remedies or other healing therapies.  Recognize through family history if you may have a higher incidence of addiction to painkillers.

 

The longer that you are on painkillers, the more likely it is that your body will develop tolerance to the dosage given.  You may need help from a doctor to wean yourself off the drugs if you’ve been taking them for longer than a week.  Ask for help.

 

No one wants to be a druggie, yet it can happen quite quickly.  Get trusted counciling from your pharmacists about the warning signs of addiction.  If you feel that you need more to feel the same level of relief, or for longer than they were prescribed, seek help immediately.
