Six dangerous prescription drugs you should think twice before taking

by Ethan A. Huff, Natural News:

Just because your doctor prescribes it does not necessarily mean it is safe for you to take. Many popular prescription drugs, it turns out, come with the potential for serious side effects, including everything from short-term nausea and headaches to chronic inflammatory myopathy and heart disease — or worse.

But this important information is often shrouded from public view, which intentionally perpetuates the myth that the benefits of FDA-approved drugs far outweigh any risks. So to give you a more solid understanding of the subject, here are six classes of prescription drugs you should definitely think twice about taking due to their inherent dangers:

1) Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). Millions of Americans take PPIs to alleviate the symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), a condition marked by food and acid in the stomach leaking back into the esophagus and causing damage. But PPIs like Nexium (exomeprazole) and Prevacid (lansoprazole) have been shown to both block nutrient absorption and inhibit the production of necessary stomach acid, which can cause a host of other health problems. (

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued at least a dozen warnings about the dangers of PPIs, which include an increased risk of bacterial diarrhea, magnesium deficiency, and bone fractures ( Long-term consumption of PPIs has also been linked to increased risk of pneumonia and unhealthy weight gain.

2) Statins. The top-selling class of drugs for several years in a row, statins are hailed by the medical system as a type of miracle cure for high cholesterol and heart disease. But popular statin drugs like Lipitor (atorvastatin calcium) and Crestor (rosuvastatin calcium) have been shown to greatly increase users’ risk of diabetes, liver disease, brain damage, muscle atrophy, and even early death. (

The side effects of statins are so severe, in fact, that the FDA recently expanded its official warnings about their use ( Beyond this, more than a dozen studies have shown that taking statins for primary prevention does little, if anything, to prevent heart attack or stroke, which means the drug class is medically useless for the millions of otherwise healthy people who are prescribed it.

  • Veterinary “medications” are frequently catastrophic for pets. Prednisone if given for several rounds eventually leads to fatal kidney failure. A single Rimadyl (PFIZER) can burn a severe ulcer into a dog’s stomach. Naturally the veterinarians won’t disclose up front what could happen due to their “medications.” If a dog/cat is hit by a barrage of vaccines early in life, the pet is very likely to suffer recurring bouts of health problems such as skin infections which its immune system cannot combat. Then due to being “set up” by the Rx pharmaceuticals, what comes next? Yes! They cheerfully give your pet cephalexin to stop the skin infection. It most likely will work, in some weird, completely artificial way. Stay on cephalexin, and the pet shows up with joint problems, pain in laying down, and “sliding leg” syndrome, indicating possible nerve damage. Older pet? Major surgery? Tell the animal goodbye, especially if its spleen removal. You’d be better off dosing the pet on bioflavonoids horse chestnut and butcher’s broom to protect spleen vessels from rupture. If the vet operates—-the dog bleeds out internally, possibly within 48 hours, and he/she hides behind their State Board.
