Taking pain medication while in pain you can not become addicted if you take it to prevent pain

you can get addicted. I don't know if this is correct
Fear of facing intense pain can make you take medication before the pain has started, but it is dangerous as this can lead easily into addiction. wave

Hi Jenny. It depends on "what medication" and how long you are taking it for. I'm not a medical expert but I worked in the medical profession for over 20yrs and read up on things also. I can't give out advice as everyone is different and people react to different medication. I just know what I will and will not take but that's my choice as don't want to become addicted to any medication, even simple paracetamol can become addictive if taken daily for a long period of time but sometimes people need the medication to overcome severe pain. It's a catch 22 situation. bouquet
This is so frustrating I have been given permission to see him, but he tells me not to come as he feels too bad.
4 days of pain at his age and he has a bad heart too.
I don't know what they give him I know he can not take morphine. I was told they are giving him the strongest medication they have but it seems not to be enough to kill the pain.
Not hearing anything from our own doctor does not help.
There is the weekend and a holiday here in Canada..............wave

Forgive my invasive intrusion, but this is a topic that strikes at just about every nerve-ending that I have left....no pun, yadayada....

There is a stark and legitimate difference between addiction and dependency. The risk of dependency does NOT override the need for treatment. Look up 'use' and 'abuse'.....there you will find the difference. And there is a supposed Opioid-crisis/epidemic claiming the lives of thousands.......Horseshit. The only crisis that exists is manufactured by the DEA. Doctors are too afraid to prescribe legitimate and CONSISTENT medicines for pain because of the authorities that know better....smh. When one is unable to get relief, where do they go? The liquor store or the street...likely to get Heroin or Fentanyl....that is the real 'crisis.'........what a stupid world.

When you use street or club drugs, you’re taking a lot of risks. The drugs are dangerous, and usually there’s no way to know how strong they are or what else may be in them. It's even more unsafe to use them along with other substances like alcohol and marijuana.

Here's a rundown of common street drugs and the health threats they can pose.

Bath Salts
These designer drugs came on the scene fairly recently and became popular fast. That may be because they were easy to get and used to be hard to detect in drug tests.

They're highly addictive, and they come in a crystalline powder that users swallow, inhale, or inject.

Despite their name, bath salts have nothing in common with products you can use for a soak in the tub.

What else they’re called: Plant Food, Bloom, Cloud Nine, Ivory Wave, Lunar Wave, Scarface, Vanilla Sky, or White Lightning.

What type of drug is it? Bath salts contain manmade stimulants called cathinones, which are similar to amphetamines.

What are the effects? These stimulants increase levels of dopamine, a brain chemical that can create feelings of euphoria.
Candykid thank you for your input. Cor is near "perfect, does not drink, smoke and never ever watched porn.
You are sure right about us living in a crazy world.
Lots of money spent for addict, saved from dying and they do it all over again and again
It must be difficult to be addicted do many new drugs on the market today wave

Bye the way are you dealing with pain yourself?

You can add suicide to that list.
I heard from a friend who was conducting research into palliative care that addiction to pain medication is a common concern. The reassurance is that opioid based pain killers affect different parts of the brain depending upon whether pain is present, or not.

As Cor is experiencing that much pain, there is no need to worry about addiction.
