Medication dependency presents itself in various forms. The fact of the matter is that as humans we have the ability to become addicted or dependent on a substance and it doesn’t necessarily need to be an illegal substance. While many people become dependent on or addicted to drugs such as heroin, cannabis, cocaine, LSD and ecstasy, there are those that become addicted to their medication such as pain killers, anti-anxiety drugs, sleeping pills, steroids and so forth.
Becoming dependent on medication that is prescribed can be relatively easy, especially as the drugs are coming from what is perceived as an entirely safe source and there are such strict controls and professionalism in place. In some cases the prescribing doctor may not be aware that their patient has an addictive tendency. The main problem with medication dependency is that the more frequently the drug is used, the more tolerance the body develops towards that substance and the larger amounts it takes to achieve the same results. This means that the dosage will need to be increased in order to achieve the same “high” or feeling that has the victim addicted. When the drug is unavailable the user will generally start to experience unpleasant withdrawal symptoms.
