Prescription Drug Charges

Oklahoma City Prescription Drug Charges Lawyer

Many people are unaware of the amount of trouble illegal prescription drugs can cause. The courts treat prescription drugs with the same seriousness they treat heroin, meth and cocaine:

  • It’s a crime for doctors to write false prescriptions, or to overprescribe, and the pills turn up on the street.
  • It’s a crime for users to tinker with a prescription to alter the dosage or quantity, or to steal a prescription pad.
  • It’s a crime for users to “doctor shop” to obtain prescription drugs.
  • It’s certainly a crime to sell illegal prescription pills or to traffic in them in any way.
  • It’s even a crime to carry legally prescribed pills in anything but the properly labeled container.

Many prescription pill addictions begin innocently, but then patients become addicted or dependent and seek more. The drugs most often involved in prescription drug charges include:


Class                                 Drug

  • Barbiturates                 Amytal, Nembutal, Seconal, Phenobarbital 
  • Sleep medications     Ativan, Halcion, Librium, Valium, Xanax
  • Benzodiazepines        Xanax, Sonata, Lunesta, Rohypnol (“roofies”)
  • Amphetamines           Biphetamine, Dexedrine, Adderall, Ritalin
  • Opioids                          Codeine, Morphine, Oxycodone (OxyContin, Percocet), Hydrocodone (Vicodin),                                                 Hydromorphone, Oxymorphone, Meperidine, Propoxyphene, Fentanyl, Methadone
