Controlled drugs come with a high risk of user addiction. Recent data have actually indicated that addiction to drugs prescribed in medical facilities is not only possible, but it is a real problem and increasing at an alarming rate. This is especially true of painkillers or cough suppressants, mainly due to the ease with which many people obtain and consume these drugs. Unfortunately, every time an individual has a headache or is in pain, they more often than not just take a painkiller without seeking the opinion of qualified medical practitioners. This increases the risk of abuse, dependency and consequently addiction.
Norco addiction has become increasingly prevalent in recent years. This is a drug available by prescription only, used in relieving pain. Being a narcotic, it has a high potential for addiction and abuse, compared with other forms of medication.
