Whether it is due to the reduction in pain or an elevation in pleasurable feelings, the person begins to take additional medication. This decision is usually made independent of the physician who prescribed the medication and before the person realizes it, they find themselves with a mental obsession regarding the medication and a craving for more.
People have also been known to take prescription medication to deal with emotional problems. The only thing most of these medications do for emotional problems are "mask or numb" the actual feelings.
