Medicine Addiction

Medicine addiction is a consequence in people who suffer from very chronic painful injuries or chronic painful conditions and it may cause a risk of overdose. Doctor Yvonne Johnson says the people who use a lot of pain killers or narcotic drugs can become addict over the time. “Narcotic abuse can increase the risk of overdose, because if you develop pain tolerance and at the same time you have tolerance to the negative side effects of medicine, and take more and more pills, you can also suffer the negative side effects," Dr. Yvonne Johnson explains.
