Answer by ajtheactress
One thing that I think would have a huge impact is if prescription drug companies where no longer allowed to advertise their products in magazines and newspapers. People see an ad and think “oh, maybe I need that drug!” and hound their doctor into giving it to them. Advertising makes people think that using a drug or product is normal and desirable which is something that directly leads to prescription drug abuse.

Prescription Drug Addiction?

Question by *~mama mari~*: Prescription drug addiction?
A friend of mine who has an addiction to Vicodin and Percoset is finally quitting YAY!! He spoke with his doctor today and was told they are prescribing a patch and a “taper”. What do they mean by “taper”? Does this mean they’re going to slowly wean him off the drugs, or start having having him take less and less each day? Or is it an actual pill or somthing of that sort that helps to wean him off the pills? Can someone please answer? I can’t find anything online.
People without real answers that don’t know what they are talking about need not answer. This is a real question that desrves real answers.

What Makes People Addicted to Prescription Drugs?

Question by ?Ebonique?: What makes people addicted to prescription drugs?
I don’t understand. Why do people get addicted to prescription drugs? I know people get addicted to street drugs like cocaine, heroine, etc., but why prescription drugs? I could never imagine myself getting addicted to prescription drugs. I thought people would look more forward to getting off prescription drugs rather than getting hooked on it.

Prescription drugs can still get you high, just like street drugs, and are just as addictive. And of course, no one chooses to become addicted to a drug. Prescription drugs is a very wide category though, and can include anything from anxiety medications to muscle relaxants and painkillers.

I Just Recently Got My Second DWI in Texas, Can I Still Go to Grad School??

Question by DateDr: I just recently got my second DWI in texas, Can i still go to Grad School??
I got one in Dallas County and one in Bexar County…..i am a full time student and i am also under 21,i want to go to either dental school or Med school i was wondering, how hard is it going to be for me to get in…and also if any one is also going thru the same thing please give me some advice…on extra things that they might have to do or just basically overall what i need to do and focus on??? I would greatly appreciate it, if sumone could throw some advice my way
Also for my benefit i moved back hom with my parents,whom do not drink and can keep an eye on me…with that being said where i use to go to school i had a very good gpa 3.6
Another thing i want to add is….im a typical college student..yes i should have stayed away from alcohol after the first one….i agree totally….but i didnt…and that doesnt make me a alcoholic…..most students do what i do but just have not gotten caught yet…and i feel that is the only diffrence that there is between me and a normal college student..I got my work done…and then i did whatever i wanted to…i never slacked always went to school was in and still is in different organizations…did tons of community service….so for me i do not think i am an alcoholic….i do not think about it all the time and i do not need it really…i just drank it because i enjoyed a drink every now and then
and also from a financial standpoint i am fine……i have no worrys about that…the only thing going around in my mind is of the fact if i can get in or not..any extra coursework or classes is fine with me i have to deal with the consequences
