Commonly Abused Prescription Drugs

Any type of prescription drug can be abused. Of course, some drugs are abused more commonly than others. This is often because of a drug’s inherently addictive properties, or because a drug causes pleasurable or relaxing effects.

Some of the most commonly abused drugs are medications that have a combination of addictive properties and favorable immediate effects. Mental health medications and painkillers have these characteristics, and therefore, are commonly abused.

Types of prescription drugs that are commonly abused include:

Signs of Prescription Drug Abuse

It can be difficult to identify prescription drug abuse in yourself or a loved one. When people become addicted to prescription drugs while using them for a medical purpose, patients may not notice that they have a problem because they are technically supposed to be using the drug. However, substance abuse is apparent when a person is using prescription drugs in a way that is not directed. Often, prescription drug abuse is marked by a person using a medication in greater quantities or more frequently than ordered by their doctor. A person who is addicted to prescription drugs may continue using a medication after they no longer need the drug or no longer have a prescription.

Recreational prescription drug use, in which the person using the drug does not have a prescription, is dangerous no matter what. Using any drug without a prescription can lead to dangerous side effects, including addiction and overdose. If you or a loved one is using prescription drugs despite not having an order from a doctor, please contact us for help.

The signs of prescription drug abuse, whether a person has a prescription or not, may include the following:

  • Having drugs or paraphernalia in their home or one their person

  • Isolating from friends and family

  • Avoiding professional and personal obligations

  • Exhibiting side effects such as mood swings and sluggishness

  • Being secretive

The signs listed above are general examples that may or may not indicate prescription drug abuse. Please keep in mind that the physical symptoms of prescription drug abuse will vary depending on the type of drug that is being used.
