    You should not be abusing your meds, that is the first sign there is a problem, now you are starting to wonder and you are right. You are prescribed these meds because of a medical problem, abusing them or mixing it w/ cold meds can be dangerous. If you can't seem to stop yourself try going to a NA meeting or some kind of therapy. You need to know why you are abusing, what is the trigger point for you. I went to therapy to discover why I was abusing drugs and once I had that knowledged and worked on my issues it was easier to understand and control, It never is easy to stop once the abuse starts but before it gets worse try to stop, try to taper down if you are using on a continuous basis. Doing alittle less each day until you stop completely. This could become a serious problem, don't let it get that far.
