Inability to Sleep. There are several reasons why someone might not be able to sleep, but a lack of sleep related to an opiate overdose is one of the most dangerous. This is especially true with prescription pain killers such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, and morphine, which all elevate serotonin levels in the brain.

Irritability, Panic Attacks, and Chronic Anxiety. People with opiate addictions may experience constant anxiety and panic attacks, which can worsen their condition and make it more difficult for them to fall asleep. They may also use opiates as a form of mood control, as they view it as a means of alleviating stress. They may feel that if they are sleeping, they are losing control of themselves and their life. This can be extremely dangerous for those with chronic pain and require opiate addiction treatment to get better.

Excessive Spending. Those with prescription opiate addictions will often spend their money on things other than necessary. They could easily be purchasing "uppers," as well as street drugs that are much cheaper and have the same effects as prescription opiates, such as heroin. This is extremely dangerous for those who are trying to avoid spending money for something they don't need.

Dependency. People suffering from opiate addictions often have an incredibly difficult time getting through each day without the use of opiates. As their dependency increases, so does their risk of developing serious health complications. Some forms of opiate addiction, such as alcohol addiction, can lead to death. Opiate addiction is also very common in people who are suffering from bipolar disorder and other mental disorders. If the person with a prescription opiate problem decides to steal to support their addiction, they run the risk of getting caught by law enforcement, or even ending up in jail for a long time.

Withdrawal Symptoms. When a person quits using a prescription opiate, they run significant risk of withdrawal symptoms when they begin to go through withdrawal. For example, those with a dependence on heroin will find that they have increased tolerance levels and need to consume larger amounts of the drug in order to achieve the same effects. Those addicted to prescription opiates will experience increased pain threshold, which makes it more likely that they will experience a seizure. As their tolerance levels increase, so do the risk of overdose as well as other complications.

In some cases, changes in the chemistry of the brain can mean that the opiate receptors are unable to respond to opiates. When this happens, the receptors will substitute other substances, which can include different kinds of chemicals, over time. Because of this, when the individual quits using the prescriptions, they run the risk of relapse, as they can no longer take opiates because their brain chemistry has been negatively affected.
