When you’re in pain from a surgery or medical procedure, your judgement is compromised, and you would throw every inhibition to the wind to get some relief from your pain. This is a dangerous feeling—one that could result in a long-term, albeit accidental, addiction to painkillers and other pain-relieving prescription medications.

However, if you can remain aware of the possibilities and dangers, you can do your best to avoid accidental addictions. Keep reading for four tips on how to avoid an accidental addiction to prescription drugs after the pain of a medical procedure.

If You Have an Addictive Nature, Ask for an Alternative to Addictive Pain Medications

Some hospitals and doctors keep alternative medication recommendations on tap specifically for those that ask for them. For example, some medications have more addictive qualities because of their numerous different ingredients. Therefore, you can ask for other meds with fewer addictive ingredients (which might be less strength in pain control).

Tip: You could also ask for holistic suggestions, such as meditation or light yoga. Neuroscience curriculum development has found that keeping the body busy helps to focus the mind as well.

Take Prescription Medications ONLY as Prescribed

Medication abuse is a real thing that can happen accidentally because you feel that your pain levels might overwhelm you. Always, no matter what, take your prescription medications only has the doctor has prescribed. You can avoid the risks of accidental addiction if you stick to the prescribed dosage and treatment set forth, strictly, by your medical team.

Keep Your Mindset That These Prescription Drugs are Temporary

Prescription medications are often temporary, until you or your doctor feels okay with discontinuation. Keep that fact at the forefront of your mindset. Prescription drugs aren’t manufactured for lifelong shelf life.

Keeping My Back Functional to Not Miss Work

I worked bent over all day in the garden. It was the first really nice day of spring. I had not been exercising like I should due to the wet weather of the winter. I did a lot of sitting at my desk and eating too many calories. My back could not hold up to the first real day of work I put it through. I had to go see my San Jose chiropractor the next day before work as my lower back was really hurting. I was walking like a very old man when I went into the office, but I walked out feeling a whole lot better.

I go to my chiropractor every time I do something stupid that causes my back to hurt. I have always had back trouble.…

How My Friend Helped Save My MarriageMy Husband and I

When people talk about erectile dysfunction they mostly talk about it from the perspective from a man but it’s a problem that affects women as well. Maybe not directly but women aren’t totally safe from the effects of the disorder. The first time my husband experienced issues with performance, I wasn’t sure what to do or say to make him feel better. I mentioned it to a friend of mine and she understood immediately. She was excited to tell me about kamagra jelly. I’d never heard of such a thing before but she assured me that she had gotten some for her husband and it worked wonders for them.

I’m the type of person that doesn’t do anything new without doing my due diligence so I got online the next morning and did some research on kamagra jelly. What I found looked pretty promising so I decided to go out on a limb and show my husband. I was unsure about how he would react to it but he seemed pretty receptive. His confidence had taken a hit since he started experiencing issues so we figured kamagra jelly would be a good thing to try before using prescription medications.

When the product arrived we were a little apprehensive but we decided that things couldn’t really get any worse and decided to go ahead and try it. It was probably one of the best decisions we ever made! Not only was he ready when the time came but he was ready again shortly after. And then again after that! After we both rested and recovered I made sure to send my friend a thank you card and a bottle of wine. If it wasn’t for her recommendation, my husband and I would probably never have found out about this life changing …

I Am Half Way to My Goal

It has been pretty tough for me to get this far and I am trying to stay disciplined and keep on the path that I have been using, but of course I would love to find some easier way to take the weight off that did not require all of the hard work and deprivation. My friends are really eager to give me advice. They have all sorts of things to recommend, for example one claims that Safflower oil reviews are really great. He did not do them himself, but someone he knew had told that it worked and he told me that someone else had told him this.…
