Certain drugs that doctors prescribe but are not safe.

#10 A Prescription Does Not Mean Its Safe

#10 A Prescription Does Not Mean Its Safe

First of all it is really important to understand that everytime a prescription is not save. A drug prescription by doctor does not guarantee you a 100% surety. Within recent years, America has seen a drastic rise in prescription drug use. Most of these drugs are safe, but we are going to tell you about a few that might not be.

Often times a patient will assume their doctor's advice is trustworthy, after all they did go to school for like 10 years. But doctors are humans too, prone to errors in judgement and sometimes even immoral behavior. It is also unrealistic for every doctor to spot a patient with potentially addictive tendencies

#9 Antibiotics

#9 Antibiotics

Most of us are prone to use the antibiotics even in a very minor health problem. The real title of this should be 'antibiotics when not used in moderation.' Although Antibiotics are used to treat infections caused by bacteria. Bacteria are microscopic organisms, some of which may cause illness, but all of us know that anything in excess is harmful and dangerous.

#8 Cold and Flu Medicine

#8 Cold and Flu Medicine

While cold medicine is supposed to attack the virus and infection to make you better, studies have suggested that it can have a lackadaisical effect on your immune system. It was found that those using cold medicines to cure their illness experienced greater length in the time they were infected, contrary to what we might think. We personally have never felt cough medicine was a cure all and at times even made us feel drowsy and tired in our bones.So now you know how effective are your cold and flu medicines.

#7 Antipsychotic Drugs

#7 Antipsychotic Drugs

If you get to know about the sideeffects that these antipsychotic drugs cause you, you will probably never consume them. The side effects of antipsychotics include obesity, high cholesterol, and cardiovascular disease .Most drugs have side effects, so it is important to weigh whether the intended purpose of the drug is positive enough to outweigh the negative side effects. When it comes to drugs that fight psychosis in its many forms, calming the voices inside someone's head may be worth any side effects that come with the cure. Regardless, it is important to know the potential dangers of what your physician may prescribe to you one day.

#6 Diuretics

#6 Diuretics

A diuretic is any substance that promotes the production of urine. This includes forced diuresis. When the body retains too much fluid that is potentially dangerous and needs to be excreted, diuretics will do the job. While diuretics have averted potentially fatal conditions and diseases, long term use of them can have equally adverse effects. These drugs can work overtime to diminish the beneficial potential of minerals in the blood, something we rely on for everyday function.

#5 Cholesterol Lowering Drugs

#5 Cholesterol Lowering Drugs

Doctors have found in recent years that cholesterol is not necessarily an indicator of heart disease, so the side effects of the drugs we take to lower our cholesterol seem less necessary to endure.

There are three types of cholesterol lowering medications with different side effects: statin drugs, bile acid sequestering agents, and Atromid (aka Lopid). All aim to lower the amount of cholesterol in the body. Statin drugs have known side effects such as liver toxicity and muscle inflammation. Bile sequestering agents have seen consistent nausea, bloating, and stomach irritation as a result of its ingestion.

#4 Coumadin or Warfarin

#4 Coumadin or Warfarin

People suffering from heart disease are the one who intake this drug. This blood thinner is prescribed in most cases to lower the risk of heart attack or stroke. While it is helpful in certain cases, it is proven that these blood thinners can weaken veins. In certain cases minor cuts have caused people on blood thinners like Coumadin to bleed out and die. Tgis proves that how dangerous is this drug.

#3 Prozac

#3 Prozac

An antidepressant that is very commonly prescribed by doctors. The biggest problem with this antidepressant is that doctors all too often prescribe it before considering other non-biological factors that may be causing depression in an individual.

The fact is, Prozac has a major effect on the way our brain functions, adjusting levels of serotonin to alter our mood. In this case it would increase the amount of serotonin, thus decreasing feelings of depression that come from a serotonin deficit. This may mean that individuals adopt an overly care-free attitude that impedes their true judgement. Now this can indeed be very dangerous.

#2 Prednisone or Cortisone

#2 Prednisone or Cortisone

Prednisone is a synthetic corticosteroid drug that is particularly effective as an immunosuppressant drug. It is used to treat certain inflammatory diseases (such as moderate allergic reactions) and (at higher doses) some types of cancer, but has significant adverse effects. Because it suppresses the immune system, it leaves patients more susceptible to infections.

Do NOT use prednisone or cortisone for any period longer than 2 weeks. The list of long term side effects speak for themselves and they include high blood pressure, potassium loss, muscle weakness, lack of fluid retention, and a long list of other dangerous effects.

#1 The Determination: All in Moderation

#1 The Determination: All in Moderation

This is not a call for humans to take an organic approach to curing themselves. It is not an indictment of pharmaceutical companies or their greed. It is a realization that medications have side effects, and some are worse than others. The message is clear: know what drugs can potentially harm you and research them before you ingest them. Trust your doctor, because he probably knows more than you, but don't trust them blindly. Be informed when it comes to cleaning your body of disease and toxins.
