Do people use the pill imprinted tv 150 3 to get high and can u get hooked on it

Not medical advice: The white round pill with the imprint 3 TV 150 is Acetaminophen and codeine phosphate 300 mg / 30 mg and belongs to the narcotic analgesic combinations drug class. Because it’s an opioid prescribed to treat chronic pain, people can become dependent on it and may eventually misuse it to get a euphoric high. 22.9 million opioid analgesic prescriptions were dispensed to patients in 2011.

Too much acetaminophen can cause long-term liver damage and may eventually lead to liver disease. Overdoses of codeine can result in the shutting down of the respiratory system and result in death.

A recent study says 1 in 60 kids will abuse painkillers at some point by the age of 21 with 16 being the peak age. Some kids in the study had been using these drugs to get high since the age of 13 or 14.
