Prescription Drug Abuse: Symptoms and Treatment in Peabody

The use of prescription medication in a manner not authorized by the doctor or taking an amount not prescribed is known as prescription drug abuse. Prescription medication abuse also occurs if an individual consumes prescription drugs that are not intended for or have not been prescribed to them.

After marijuana and Over the Counter drugs (OTCs), prescription drugs are the most commonly abused in Peabody .

Prescription drugs often serve as gateway drugs and have been cited as the first drug used by individuals aged 12 and above. This is because of the common misconception that some medications are safer to intake than others since they are prescribed by a medical professional. The prescription drug abuse problem has escalated to such an extent that the Center for Disease Control and Prevention has now classified it as an epidemic.

The most commonly abused prescription medications include painkillers, anti anxiety medication, stimulants and sedatives.

Meth Vaccine Trials

A team at TSRI (The Scripps Research Institute) has developed several compounds that they believe can bring the meth vaccine concept to fruition. These compound were tested on rats, and one of them (MH6) did show positive effects.

When lab rats became high on meth, they were seen to have abnormally high levels of energy, and their body temperature increased significantly. The compound MH6 helped to curb both these conditions, and it also created a health antibody response. The basic idea of a vaccine is to fuel the creation of antibodies that will fight off diseases in the body. A similar effect generated by MH6 compelled researchers to believe that the vaccine was preventing meth from reaching the nervous system.

A different research group reports that studies for antibody-based addiction treatment also show promising results. In this study antibodies for meth are grown through standard biotechnology methods. The problem is that these particular methods are highly costly, which will discourage meth addicts from using it.

Opiate Addiction: Effects, Signs and Treatment in Peabody

Opiate addiction is a nervous system disorder that is caused as a result of the use of opiates. These drugs are extremely dangerous and potentially fatal. Physical dependency on opiates varies from individual to individual as some may become addicted to opiates from their very first or second use while others may use them recreationally without ever being physically dependent on them.
