Significant Facts about Codeine Addiction

This is a common form of addiction and this codeine addiction habitually sneaks up on the person caught up in its use. Codeine is a medication that is prescribed to relieve pain. This makes it easy for a person who takes codeine to develop a codeine addiction, because he or she thinks codeine is the only way to cope with their pain. Eventually the mind shift is that it is OK to take it to prevent pain from happening whether needed or not. Since it is easy to develop a codeine addiction when taking prescription codeine, it is important to follow the doctor’s directions closely. To avoid codeine addiction, make sure to only take the prescribed dosage and to only take the codeine for as long as it is prescribed. Prolonged use reduces it’s effectiveness and thus means you have to start taking more and more. Failure to follow the doctor’s directions makes it more likely for a person to develop a codeine addiction. Codeine addiction is potentially life threatening. Furthermore, codeine addiction drives a wedge between personal relationships, as it is difficult for loved ones to cope with someone suffering from codeine addiction if they are zoned out most of the time. Therefore, it is of the utmost importance that a person with a codeine addiction receives help. To get help for codeine addiction, the person coping with the codeine addiction needs to first accept that fact that he has a problem. Then they must be willing to get appropriate help and treatment for his addiction....
