Prescription fraud can be defined as any unlawful acquisition of prescription drugs for profit, personal use and/or recreation—which is usually due to an addiction.

This could include any acts such as visiting several doctors to obtain multiple prescriptions, forging a prescription, and/or altering a prescription to increase the quantity.

All of these acts are illegal and punishable under the law. Some of the most commonly abused prescription drugs, according to Maine law enforcement, include:

  • Vicodin (hydrocodone)
  • Valium (diazepam)
  • Xanax (alprazolam)
  • OxyContin (oxycodone)
  • Percocet (oxycodone/paracetamol)
  • Morphine

Although these substances are frequently, and legally, prescribed for various medical conditions, many of these drugs can create a high level of dependency if taken for a prolonged period of time—causing addiction to develop in some users.

Taking measures to illegally obtain prescriptions for these drugs, however, is a punishable offense and can have serious penalties if convicted of a prescription fraud charge.
