However, his story shows the dangers of prescription medication.

The Battle with Prescription Drugs

Timbaland was prescribed OxyContin to treat some problems with an old injury from his teen years. After some time, it became an addiction that led to his loss of popularity in the music world. He was struggling because of the drugs which led to more use to hide from the disappointment and other negative emotions.

The producer went through a period of depression during this time which impacted his drug use. The addiction got so bad his girlfriend was afraid he would die in his sleep. The seriousness of addiction to prescription medication is often overlooked or ignored, but it’s real.

After getting clean, Timbaland has been focused on being healthier and spending more time in the gym.
