It all depends on the person and their circumstances. The thing you have to know is the drug that is being taken isn't what causes addiction but it's the drugs ability to make people develop dependence to that drug and the person decides to abuse this drug somehow by taking differently. I can say this because I've been addicted to a drug (and will be for the rest of my life). The drug wasn't the reason I was addicted, I was the reason I became addicted. I don't care what anybody says about how addictive drugs are because the drugs don't cause addiction. Although they can cause Dependence but that's different from addiction. I've heard people taking a drug just one time and felt the Euphoric feeling that they loved so much so they knew immediately that they were hooked. But you have to remember that that person decided to abuse that drug by changing the way they were taking it or how much they took. So what I'm trying to say I guess is it depends on if you have an addictive personality. I was addicted to Ketamine but I can easily take Prescription drugs such as Adderall, Xanax, and Fentanyl just fine without abusing them. I have for years. One word of warning. If you feel like the drug is making you happy and you need it to function or just get out of bed that's when you need to talk to your doctor about it. Addiction is somewhat rare but but once it happens it hits you so fast you don't know what happened until you go through rehab. So just be cautious about it and if you feel Euphoria never take that drug again. As long as you take your prescriptions as prescribes you should be fine and it shouldn't cause addiction. Hope this helps. Good luck to you!
