Prescription pill dependency is a term used to describe needing to take prescription pills for no other reason than to feel normal. An individual may feel the need to take prescription pills, even when it is not necessary for them to do so. One of the main causes of prescription pill dependency is depression. Depression can cause an individual to feel as though they are not living up to their full potential and may lead them to believe that taking a prescription pill is the only way they can feel normal again.
Another cause of prescription pill dependency is anxiety. Anxiety can cause an individual to feel as though they are constantly under threat in the real world and may lead them to believe that taking a prescription pill is the only way they can feel safe again.
Dependency on prescription pulls is a growing epidemic. Other options are available to help alleviate the stress. Non-invasive neuromodulation technology, such as tDCS and CES, can offer users relief. These exciting technologies can help stimulate the brain. CES is FDA cleared to help with depression, anxiety, and insomnia. tDCS is not FDA-cleared for a medical indication but research is promising on its ability to help.
