A dependency to prescription drugs is more often than not recognized at a very late stage in terms of addiction and dependency. Prescription medication is a drug prescribed by a medical professional, a doctor, therapist, etc… They generally work by promoting or suppressing chemical reactions in the brain.

There are many signs you might pick up on if you think someone you know is abusing prescription medication, including; frequent requests for refills, regularly losing prescriptions and requesting new ones, stealing/borrowing prescription medication from family/friends, forging prescriptions, and more.

Many individuals suffering from a prescription drug dependency will have alternating mood swings, one day they can be extremely happy and lively and the next they can be cold, irritable, and alienate those around them. This generally correlates with the availability or absence of the drugs.

Fortunately, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
