Not only are prescription drugs easily attainable, they can also be very dangerous if abused over a long period of time. Many people are prescribed some type of medication to help them with an ailment or affliction. These medications can allow people to lead more productive lives if they are suffering from some form of pain or disease. Prescription medication addicts, however, fall into the dangerous cycle of abusing legal drugs because they believe that these medications are the only way in which they will be able to go on living their normal lives.
Prescription drugs can also be extremely dangerous because the people that are usually abusing them do not have prescriptions and therefore have not been cautioned against the dangers that substances like alcohol, tobacco, or other medications being taken present to people taking prescription medications. Once a person gets addicted to legal forms of medication, it can be very difficult to get them to break the cycle that afflicts them.
