Medical professionals also treat a large number of people with chronic pain syndrome, with a short time of therapy with prescription painkillers. Some of the prescriptions are for narcotic opioid drugs like OxyContin or Vicodin and are very addictive. It doesn’t matter if the doctor prescribed the drug for a reasonable injury or not, people are at risk of developing an addiction if not properly managed.

A Personal Story on Abusing Prescriptions for Pain Killing Reasons
I will tell you a personal story about when I broke a rib while having a bad cough. Coughing with a broken rib hurts as you can´t imagine. My doctor prescribed Tramadol, however, she didn´t understand why I could not buy boxes with less than a hundred pills, they would not sell less at the drugstore in Germany. She said, “you need to take this only for a week, it is very addictive and dangerous”. She conveyed to me the same information I am sharing with you here, and this probably prevented me from taking the rest of the pills.
