Those pills’ that most of us are taking every day, year in and year out to help us against whatever ailment we have. What are they doing to our body? Are they a medically necessity, or are there herb alternatives that can handle the problems we have?
Could it be that the so called non-chemical alternatives can cure us better, and without any side effects?
Well, the doctors are learned to heal us with the chemical alternatives. But, what are we supposed to look for when the doctor prescribes us our medication?
How come that with the chemical alternatives the doctor prescribes to us, suddenly we see on the TV that the food and drug administration, the FDA, has taken one of the pills of the market, and given a warning about another pill. We better check our own supply of pills. Could be that we do have one of those pills among the pills we are taking every day.
We can over dose, and purposely take our own life with quite a number of these pills. However, when our doctor gives us a prescription. Those pills he gives us are supposed to be for our good, and to heal us. But, my friend in the USA alone, there are 100.000 people each year that die from side effects from these pills, that are supposed to heal us. That is one person every five minutes.
While this happens, the pharmaceutical corporations are getting richer by the minutes.
When FDA, warns us about pill’s, a pill that the FDA have okay previously. That doesn’t mean that the doctor stops prescribing them. Take for example Zoloft, in France, that pill has been taken of the market. In Germany, the doctors cannot give it to new patients, only to old patients that have proven that their body can accept the pill. But, here in our country the doctors keep prescribing this dangerous medication day after day.
Even a non-medical product like Febreze, a product made to eliminate odors in your residence. This product contains a chemical, zinc chloride, that can be dangerous to house animals, and even to extra sensitive people. People that are especially sensitive to various chemicals should stay away from this and similar products. If you and your family are healthy, the product is most probably okay. But if you have animals, cats, dogs or birds in your household, be careful and do a small test before using the product. All the cleaning products for similar use, have the same chemical make-up. And can if you are sensitive to the product give you or someone you love, side effects.
Mucinex, as most medicines may cause some side effect. It is however proven, that most people have little or no side effects from medications. But, unfortunately we are not all the same. Even a product like Mucinex, can cause rash, hives, itching, difficult breathing, tightness in the chest, swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue. With any type of reaction to a medication, see your doctor first, and do not stop taking the medication before the doctor tells you to stop.
Paxil, when you read this, remember that most people do not get any side effects from the prescribed drug. However, with a medication like Paxil, if your body reacts, you can get, anxiety; blurred vision; constipation; decreased sexual desire or ability; diarrhea; dizziness; drowsiness; dry mouth; gas; increased sweating; increased urination; loss of appetite; nausea; nervousness; numbness or tingling of the skin; stomach upset; trouble sleeping; weakness; yawning; bizarre behavior; black or bloody stool; chest pain; confusion; decreased concentration; exaggerated reflexes; fainting; fast and irregular heartbeat; fever; chills; or sore throat; hallucinations; memory loss; new or worsening mental, or mood changes. Even some deaths have been reported this type of product. These are but a few of the possible side effects of medicines like Paxil, Effexor, and Zoloft.
That is why we have to read, and learn, about any new medication the doctor wants us to take. Whatever pill your doctor prescribe to you, or to another member of your family, get on the computer and find out the side effects. Are you willing to try, or are there some other medications with less side affects you could choose? Google it up, and read about the side effects.
Actos, generic name pioglitazone, is a medication for type two diabetes, and is in the class of medication called thiazalidinedions, or TZDs. Actos, side effects are generally few in patients who have no congestive heart failure. But, because of the cardiac risk associated with the TZDs as a class, the use of Actos has become less popular over the years. Common side effects from Actos, is fluid retention; headache; sinusitis; edema; weight gain; dyspnea; myalgia’s; pharyngitis; delusional anemia; hypoglycemia. A serious side effect of Actos, is also an increased incidence of bladder cancer.
Delsym, same as most medication, most people get no side effects at all. But unfortunately, there are some that get some, like dizziness; drowsiness; stomach upset; rash, hives; difficult breathing; tightness in the chest; swelling of mouth, face, lips, or tongue; mental confusion; excitation; and in some cases of abuse, the patients experienced euphoria; hyperactivity; mania; and auditory and visual hallucination. But, remember now that there is only a small percent of the patients that actually get these side effects. At the most, as with any medication you can count on, that less than twenty percent will get side effects.
Abilify, even here, those that get side effects might get headaches; sedated feelings; agitations; insomnia; fatigue, anxiety, drowsiness; nausea; vomiting; restlessness; constipation; dizziness; indigestion or heartburn; shakiness or tremor; weight gain; restlessness; dry mouth; joint pain; throat pain; blurred vision; abdominal pain; pain; cough; nasal congestion; increased salvation; swelling or water retention in the arms, legs, or feet.
Topamax, you might get; constipation; decreased sweating; diarrhea; dizziness; drowsiness; dry mouth; flu-like symptoms; headaches; loss of appetites; nausea; nervousness; numbness or tingling of the skin; runny nose; sore throat; stomach pain; upset stomach; taste changes; tiredness; trouble sleeping; weight loss, and more.
Celebrex, people with arthritis, what is the risk they take when they follow the doctor’s prescription and take Celebrex. This medication, that works fine for most patients, can as a side effect increase the risk of heart attack, even cause a stroke. That can, to the not so lucky patients that happens to be extra sensitive, cause death. Skin reactions, and or stomach problems, plus intestine problems like bleeding and ulcers that can appear without warning and can also lead to death.
Then we have Accutane, Cellexa, Ritalin, Embrell, Cymbalta, Stellara, and the list goes on and on. The amount of these chemical pills seems to be endless. That’s why it is so important for each of us to get on the Internet and find out what kind of side effects the pills have, the pills that our doctors keep prescribing. If you haven’t got a computer, go to the library, or ask a friend that owns a computer to help you.
Even Tylenol, Benadryl and Aspirin can have serious side effects when taken together with other medication. It is up to us, ourselves to find out what risk we take when popping a pill.
For the lady of the house, the products available for birth control, are a big problem. Take a product like Jazz, for less than a year ago it was heavily advertised as a safe product. Now, we know that it is an extremely dangerous product that can and will cause both heart attacks and stroke with deadly outcome.
There are a few people within my own circle of friends, that are taking as many as six and seven different medications every day. It should be illegal for any physician to give one single patient that amount of chemical medications. It might be okay for one or maybe two years, but in the long run it will kill the patient.
You might have a hard time believing what I am to show you now.
More than 1.3 million people are injured here in the US each year from their doctors prescribe dose of medication, I am not talking about over medicating, this is the doctors ordered dose, not over dosing.
And 100.000 die each year from taking these dangerous medications while the large pharmaceutical Corporations gets richer, and richer. That my friend, as I wrote earlier, shows us that 100.000 per year, is one person every five minutes.
The companies that supply us with these chemicals, are pocketing over $25 Billion on their medications each year.
Prescription drugs are 17% deadlier then terrorism, and kills in our country far too many people each year.
We have even the pesticides to worry about. The companies that produces these poisons, tells us that they are safe for us. They are only made to kill ants, and roaches. But, when they are potent enough to kill the bugs, wouldn’t they kill us, over a long term? I mean to say, they are made to kill aren’t they?
So my friend we cannot blame the doctor. We have to rely on our own ability to find out if the benefit from this medication we need, overweighs the possibility of us getting the bad side effect. Usually on the high side, 20% may be getting some side effects. That also tells us that 80% or more, didn't get any side effects at all.
Are we, if we are following our doctors’ advice, playing what is called Russian Roulette with our own lives? Or, should we accept that less than 20% are going to get the side effects. And we know of course, that we ourselves are not among those weak individuals that are complaining all the time, and are getting the side effects.
100.000 people die from side-effects their own doctor have given them. This number does not include people that are over-dosing themselves. Could the non-chemical alternatives be better? The doctors are learned to give us only the chemical alternatives. Only around 20% of the population is actually getting some side-effect. Are we the lucky once, or do we belong to the 20%? The companies that supply us with the chemical alternatives are pocketing over twenty-five Billion each year. Why should they stop, or change to less dangerous alternatives?
