Prescription drugs play a critical role in medicine. Misuse of these drugs however, has earned them a place among highly toxic illicit substances that cause addiction and prematurely end lives. Of the long list of doctor prescribed medications that are being widely abused today, there are a few that stand out as the most problematic and potentially deadly in high doses. The following drugs have been shown through research data, emergency room visits, calls to poison control centers and coroner’s reports to cause severe drug dependency, addictions and fatalities.
Approximately seven million Americans abuse prescription drugs annually according to a 2010 study by the National Institute on Drug Abuse. This abuse can occur from misuse of legally prescribed medications as well as through recreational or non-medical acquisition and abuse of these drugs.
