  • Addiction: What are the symptoms?

    Thanks to everyone who responded to my previous questions about addiction. I was going to reply to that thread, but I figured I'd start a new topic, because I want to ask a couple more questions.

    How do you know if you are becoming addicted or are addicted? Are there any symptoms to watch for? Also, how fast can a person become addicted to a prescription diet drug?

    I think one of the signs is that you start to feel withdrawal symptoms. Like if you don't take the pill in time, you may start to feel unpleasant side effects, maybe headache or some other form of discomfort or anxiety, which goes away once you take the pill. At least, I think that's how it goes. I know it can be different from medication to medication and I've personally never experienced but that's what I've heard from others.

      I agree with Mike. If you start to feel strange when you are nearing your next dose or if you skip one, it could be a sign that your body is becoming dependent.
