I always thought medicine is suppose to help you heal. When people get prescriptions for ailments they usually end up using it all there lives. If the medicine you use doesn't help heal your ailments why are people using them for over 5 years sometimes. I remember a time when someone I knew had to get off the medication they were taking and wouldn't let it go like a fiend. Could it be that prescriptions other than pain killers can be addictive also.
