Beware of Addiction to Prescription Drugs
We have a silent epidemic of addiction to prescription drugs. Many people are hooked on analgesics, tranquilizers, antidepressants, and sleeping pills that were prescribed by their physicians. Ironically, the imprimatur of the physician’s prescription pad misleads many patients into a false sense of security and a life of addiction that the physician is often slow to diagnose or treat. It’s wise for physicians and patients to discuss the addictive potential of prescription drugs.
