What does addiction means?
Asked: 2018-04-18 12:14:18
I have a big surgery coming up and I will need painkillers during my recovery. I want to make sure I don’t get addicted as I’ve been hearing a lot about this. How can I know what signs to look out for?

Having the painkillers right after your surgery is normal and just fine, as long as you take them in the prescribed amount as approved by your doctor or surgeon. If you begin to feel like you need the painkillers all the time, or even after the pain subsides, then you should be on high alert. You should also be concerned if you start feeling sick or not normal when you’re not taking the pills.
