Commonly Abused Prescription Drugs

There are various types of prescription drugs, and not all of them lead to addiction. But if prescription drugs are misused or abused, they can lead to dependence. The most abused prescription drugs usually fall into three categories: depressants, stimulants, and opioid narcotics.

Benzodiazepines: The most commonly abused benzodiazepines include Xanax, Ativan (Lorazepam), Valium, and Klonopin. People who misuse these drugs usually take them by mouth. These drugs are meant to help with anxiety disorders, seizures, or alcohol withdrawal symptoms.

Barbiturates: Another type of depressant is barbiturates, which includes drugs like Nembunal, Seconal, and Amytal. These drugs can be taken by mouth or injected into a vein. Barbiturates are used to treat migraines, insomnia, and seizures.

Sleep Medications: Commonly abused sleep medications include Lunesta, Ambien, and Sonata. These drugs are taken by mouth and are usually prescribed for sleep problems like insomnia or night terrors.


Amphetamines: People often misuse amphetamines like Adderall, Dexedrine, and Biphetamine. They might take them by mouth, inject them, smoke them, or snort them. Many prescription amphetamines are meant to help with conditions like attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Methylphenidate: Some commonly misused methylphenidate drugs include Ritalin and Concerta. People might swallow them, snort them, or inject them. Both of these drugs are used to treat ADHD.

Opioid Narcotics

Fentanyl: Fentanyl is an opioid painkiller prescribed for intense and lasting pain. Sadly, many overdose deaths have happened because dealers mix fentanyl with other drugs like heroin.

Codeine: Codeine is a pain reliever often used to treat mild to moderate pain. It’s usually found in cough syrups and cold medicines, but you can also find codeine mixed with other things like acetaminophen, aspirin, carisoprodol, and promethazine.

Methadone: Methadone helps with moderate pain and also fights heroin addiction. People who’ve used heroin for a while might use methadone to manage cravings and discomfort.

Morphine: In hospitals, morphine is administered through IV to help with severe pain. However, taking morphine with a prescription or with alcohol or similar drugs can be dangerous.

Oxycontin: Oxycontin, or oxycodone, is a strong painkiller. People often misuse it, and many who misuse oxycontin might later turn to heroin.

Hydrocodone: Hydrocodone is another opioid painkiller. It’s often misused, even though it’s prescribed for moderate to severe pain.

Prescription Drug Withdrawal Symptoms

Prescription drug addiction can cause individuals to develop a dependency on their chemicals and effects. Their boost in dopamine and euphoria can program the brain into relying on these substances to feel motivated, happy, or relaxed. If an individual attempts to quit these prescription drugs without medical monitoring, the withdrawal symptoms can cause relapse, discomfort, and in some cases, psychosis or death.

  • Unique Withdrawal Symptoms: Anxiety, restlessness, seizures, hallucinations, and delusions.
  • General Withdrawal Symptoms: Insomnia, nausea, vomiting, increased heart rate, tremors, sweating, confusion, irritability, blurred vision, muscle tension, and nightmares.
  • Unique Withdrawal Symptoms: Extreme fatigue, depression, and disrupted sleep patterns.
  • General Withdrawal Symptoms: Increased appetite, slowed movements, lack of motivation, irritability, anxiety, and restlessness.
  • Unique Withdrawal Symptoms: Tremors, bone and muscle pain, cold flashes, and uncontrollable leg movements (restless legs syndrome).
  • General Withdrawal Symptoms: Anxiety, accelerated heart rate, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach cramps, dilated pupils, goosebumps, insomnia, and yawning.

Private Nurse Services: At MD Home Detox, we prioritize your comfort during recovery by providing our private nurse services. This allows patients to recover in the familiarity of their own homes. Our dedicated private nurses are available around the clock, ensuring a safe detox and prompt medical care when necessary. They work with your doctor to administer prescribed medications, alleviating withdrawal discomfort. Additionally, your private nurse crafts a personalized plan based on your situation, addressing both short-term challenges and formulating a long-term recovery strategy encompassing addiction and mental health aspects.

Drug Testing, Monitoring, & Aftercare: Testing for drugs and providing continued care at home helps the person in recovery and their family by regularly checking to support the person’s commitment to getting better. The testing happens twice a week and is analyzed at our labs to watch over the use of all substances, including alcohol. This way, our case managers can follow how you’re doing, and if there are any setbacks or problems, they can help you.

These companions work closely with you to establish trust, creating a dependable relationship beyond the initial stages of recovery.
