Pain Medication And Dependency Are You At Risk?

Mar 14, 2008
Pain medication is used to relieve surgery patients, those who have been in accidents, and even those with chronic illnesses from different types of aches and sores. But as history has shown, pain medication can cause dependency and addiction in a large majority of its users. So how do you know if you are at risk or not?

Why Pain Medication Is Addicting

Pain medication blocks pain receptors, which gives the human body a sense of euphoria in some instances. This is a rather addicting feeling to have, for obvious reasons. But the interesting part is that once this feeling is achieved, a user starts to become accustomed to the feeling. Therefore, a bigger dosage of medicine is needed- which creates further dependency and addiction issues.

These simple facts are the reason why pain medication has become some of the most widely abused drugs in the world. In many cases, this abuse leads to critical accidents such as overdosing. This goes to show that pain killers can be just as deadly as they are addicting.

Safe Forms of Pain Killers

There are certain forms of prescription medication that allows users to get the best of both worlds: potent pain killing power and little to no risk of dependency or addiction. So how do these safe forms of pain killers work?

One of the newer pain killers on the market, Tramadol, provides around 10% of the power obtained from morphine, but is devoid of the risk and dependency associated with pain killers. Thus, Tramadol has become very popular among the pain killer users. Tramadol still requires a prescription, however, as it is not over the counter medication.

Where To Obtain Safe Pain Killers

Safe pain killers can be acquired over the Internet for easy ordering and receiving. The handy part about ordering online is that FedEx Next Day shipping can be obtained to get the prescription medication the very next day.

Internet users enjoy the online pharmacy craze that has spawned in recent years. Many view it as a way to get a Free Prescription, since the actual doctor's visit is unnecessary. Instead hopeful pain killer users will conference with an online pharmacist that prescribes the medication. Because the online pharmacist will suffer less running and labor costs, the fee is much less than what a normal office visit would be.

Of course, not everyone has Internet access. If that is the case, the trip to the doctor's office and local pharmacy is still viable. Tramadol, as mentioned before requires a prescription. If you do not qualify for Tramadol (which almost everyone should) you should ask your doctor for other alternatives to non habit forming drugs. After all, we are trying to fix problems, not create them!

Final Thoughts On Pain Killers, Dependency, and Addiction

Whatever the solution becomes to relieving pain, take steps to ensure you do not become dependent or addicted to pain killers. Alternatives such as Tramadol are great for those who might be at risk for such behavior. Otherwise, doctor supervision may be required to ensure health use of a drug or product.

If the resulting medication is prescription based, don't forget about the wonders of the Internet- it might just end up saving you some money and wasted effort in getting to the local pharmacy or doctors office.
