(KTNV) -- The pressure to be a perfect mom is everywhere. But, some moms are taking it to dangerous levels.
They are called "mommy's little helpers" -- Zoloft, Prozac and Xanax.
It is becoming a big problem. Moms around the country are popping pills just to make it through their days.
Some moms are even doctor shopping, looking for one that will write a prescription for whatever drugs they desire.
The Center for Disease Controls says this is extremely dangerous. It only takes one month to become addicted to prescription pills.
What follows could be a lifetime of recovery.
Other moms are outraged over this practice and think it is pathetic that some mothers can't handle their own children on a day-to-day basis.
