One in four adults prescribed addictive medicines, says PHE review


I’m a psychiatrist and worked in general adult psychiatry for 15 years. They are not addictive. You do not need increasing doses for same effect. You do not get tolerance to them. They do not cause misery like codeine/ benzos/ heroin etc. This is unhelpful scaremongering.
