You also may start to take different amounts that what was originally prescribed, and you also start to stray from your doctor’s orders.
If you doctor is noticing that you are becoming increasingly dependent on painkillers and will not prescribe any more mediation, you may start “doctor shopping” in order to get more painkillers. You may also resort to buying painkillers over the Internet or stealing them from people’s medicine cabinets. Additionally, you may resort to injuring yourself so you can go to an emergency room and get a new prescription.
