    addicted to you

    Dear teachers,
    Could you help me with the synonym for 'a person addicted to medicine'? I've found the 'drug-addict' but isn't it just a person using drugs=coca, ampha and the others?
    I'm waiting for your opinions. Thank you in advance.

    Someone addicted to prescription medicine, is a drug addict.

    Re: addicted to you

    Hello, cat's eyes, (like the three girls), I am not a teacher,

    but if you want to know one synonym for 'addcited' maybe the word 'dependence' is good in you case.

    Addicted is a strong word but it depends on the connotation you would use it.

    Sorry for my mistake but I am just a learner.

    Cordially,

    Thank you, I'll fit it in the context and check which one is better. I didn't think about this 'dependence'. Thanks again:)

    There is a term "Prescription drug-addict" for a person who is only addicted to prescribed drugs (often not their own).
