About Medication Detox
Aside from opiates and benzos, the remaining prescription drugs that are most commonly abused or cause other dependencies include stimulants, sedatives, antidepressants and antipsychotics.
Stimulants are drugs such as Adderall, Dexedrine, Ritalin and others. Many millions of people, mostly under the age of 25, are erroneously prescribed stimulants. These drugs are highly addictive and have very severe side effects.
The most common sedatives are usually sleeping pills like Lunesta and Ambien, among others. In addition to their own dangers and side effects, these drugs are often abused with alcohol or other substances and can cause things such as complete blackouts even while people are out and about.
The news of the lack of effectiveness of antidepressants vs. placebo continues to spread, along with the growing list of dangerous side effects, yet millions of people young and old are still prescribed these drugs in the United States. Withdrawal from antidepressants can also be very dangerous if not done correctly or monitored by a medical professional.
Antipsychotic drugs are growing in popularity, but not because of their effectiveness. These drugs include Abilify, Geodon, Risperdal, Seroquel, Symbyax, Zyprexa, and others. They are being prescribed more for off-label use as well and present a huge income source for drug companies, despite their well-documented severe side effects and potential for causing more harm that good. One common side effect people report is a feeling of being "disconnected" from themselves, and therefore wind up doing things that they normally would not do and want to get off the drugs to feel more "normal".
While there may be a time and a place for all of the drugs on this list, the necessity for drugs like these is actually ver limited. We specialize in helping people find detox centers that will help them safely step down from their prescription medications and seek alternative solutions to dealing with their symptoms that are usually more effective and definitely have less side effects.
