Asked: 2018-01-17 09:20:36
I've been on everyday large amount of medications that i think are addictive. I'm prescribed the medications and i don't abuse them but I'm worried about addiction and will likely be on these for a long time. Should I be this worried are prescription drugs addictive and will they ruin my life.

You shouldn’t have concerns of addiction if you take the prescription drugs as recommended. But there are prescription meds that have high risk for addiction and those are opiate based meds and benzodiazepines. Be careful with those.

They can be, but not all are and seeing that you're concerned its obvious you don't have an addictive personality. On that note I think you'll be fine.
