Medication pills are usually prescribed by a doctor and administered by a pharmacy. However, it may not be safe for everyone. Taking drugs in more quantity than prescribed can lead to drug abuse.
There are 4 most common addictive prescription drugs, which include:

1. Xanax- It is a prescribed drug which is used to treat panic disorder and serious anxiety. It calms the muscles by depressing the central nervous system. Few people abuse this drug due to its fast-acting sedating and relaxing effects.

2. Oxycodone- It is an opioid that changes the way the brain and nervous system respond to pain. Usually, it creates a sedative and euphoric effect. Often these pills can cost hundreds of dollars (for a single pill) and therefore, addicts have to steal to afford the habit.

3. Codeine- It is usually combined with other medications to reduce coughing and pain. However, if taken in higher quantity, it can cause a sedative effect and can alter the levels of consciousness.

4. Amphetamines- The doctors prescribe this drug for a condition called ADHD (attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder) where a focus is needed to combat symptoms. It is basically abused by college students to skip on sleep.

It is, therefore, necessary that one must consult a certified drug detox in San Jose to alter the effects caused by drug overdose.

All these medications are really highly addictive. They are usually used for right purposes but can cause abuse, so it is necessary to take them carefully. But luckily according to Addiction Resourse, they can be successfully treated under the guidance of professional healthcare workers.

Misuse of prescription drugs means taking a medication in a manner or dose other than prescribed which is totally illegal. The most common is "opioids" which usually treat for pain. When these are used long-term, opioids may lead to drug abuse with physical dependence and addiction and overdoes can lead to a human death.
