A prescription (℞) is a form given by a doctor to a patient to get special medicine. They are often very strong, and they cannot be bought normally from a pharmacy as you could with over the counter drugs. Some prescription drugs, for example Oxycontin or Hydrocodone, are used illegally to become intoxicated. Using prescription drugs illegally may result in drug addiction.
