One of the important medications used by doctors in treating serious bouts of constipation is a laxative. This is a drug or chemical compound which when ingested enables the patient to experience a bowel movement and ease the constipation. Laxatives as medication, or drugs, are prescribed to patients by their doctors upon diagnosis of serious constipation. Sometimes, after the prescribed dosage is over, some patients will seek to use laxatives over and over again, usually without a prescription, most commonly, this is use of laxatives to lose weight. This has the risk of causing medical complications while also entrapping the user into addiction.
Laxatives are very addictive, and people easily get addicted to this powerful medication. Addiction to this medication is very serious and can cause life threatening conditions. These conditions are really serious and may negatively impact the user, making them experience serious medical complications. This kind of addiction should be avoided at all costs by avoiding the use of unauthorized doses of the drug. Those already addicted should be treated in order to ensure the health and safety of the individual in question is secured.
