Taking a Stand against Prescription Drug Abuse

Prescription drug abuse is common and harmful. Drugs like opiates cause addicts a lot of harmful problems later on and the withdrawal symptoms are dangerous. Plus, a lot of people dont even realize the potential side effects that these drugs can have on them while abusing them. These medicines, without proper knowledge can have harmful effects especially when taken in higher dosages or in combination with other medicines. People need to start realizing these facts and take a united stand against such an abuse.

How Does Addiction Develop

When you try a drug for the first time, it produces exaggerated effects. Some of these might be psychological in nature; however, a majority of the effects are drug induced. As you continue to engage in the activity of taking drugs and enjoying its pleasurable effects, you begin to reach a state where the dosage does not produce the required effects. This is when you develop what is called a tolerance for the drug.

Under this phenomenon, your body grows accustomed to the drug. Now, whenever you take the dosage that you are accustomed to, your body does not experience the usual high. This of course forces you to increase your drug intake. And the vicious cycle of addiction begins because now you have to continually increase your dosage just to feel a regular high.

Now that you are physiologically dependent on the drug, the chemical balance of your body is changed. At this point, you will realize that you need the drug. This will scare you because you do not want to be dependent on it, so the instant reaction is to stop. Unfortunately, this only further aggravates your health condition because you start to suffer from what are called, withdrawal symptoms.

What Causes Xanax Addiction?

Xanax the brand name of a prescription medication classified as a benzodiazepine. This is prescribed to patients who suffer from anxiety and panic disorders. Xanax stifles the inhibitory receptor in the brain which curbs abnormal excitement. People who take Xanax in large quantities or use it for prolong periods of time can become addicted.
