Current List of Most Dangerous Prescription Drugs

The more I study disease, ailments and infirmities many of which are the result of poor diet, wrong food choices and lack of exercise and natural supplements to replace what the packaged food folks took out of what God put into natural foods to begin with; the more astonished I am that drug companies keep making a fortune by claiming to have the solution to your problem.

I know that the above is a run on sentence and my third grade school teacher if she were still here would not be happy. In any event if you read it twice it still makes sense.

BOTTOM line is that while drugs mask some symptoms, they are NOT FOOD and do not contain NUTRIENTS that nourish the body and heal the body. For the most part they interfere with bodily processes that the good Lord set up when he created Adam out of the dust of the ground in the Garden of Eden. Many of the side effects of modern day prescription drugs have proven to be detrimental to your health and yes even FATAL.

There were NO drug stores available, however He DID plant the tree of life in the garden for nourishment.

Genesis 2:9
New International Version
The LORD God made all kinds of trees grow out of the ground--trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food. In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

Verses 8-10 (context):

The Planting of the Garden
8The LORD God planted a garden toward the east, in Eden; and there He placed the man whom He had formed. 9Out of the ground the LORD God caused to grow every tree that is pleasing to the sight and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. 10Now a river flowed out of Eden to water the garden; and from there it divided and became four rivers.

First of all prescription drugs are the 4th leading cause of death. That should make you sit up and take notice and perhaps look in your medicine box and see what you are taking and read the labels and side effects.

Here is a list of  7 prescription Drugs that are labeled most commonly prescribed and MOST DANGEROUS:

Prednisone and Cortisone:

What’s the deal? Used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, asthma, allergies and many other conditions. Corticosteroids mimic the effects of hormones your body produces naturally in your adrenal glands, which sit on top of your kidneys. When prescribed in doses that exceed your body’s usual levels, corticosteroids suppress inflammation.
What are the side effects? 
  • High blood sugar, which can trigger or worsen diabetes
  • Increased risk of infections
  • Thinning bones (osteoporosis) and fractures
  • Suppressed adrenal gland hormone production
  • Thin skin, easy bruising and slower wound healing
Methotrexate and other Chemotherapeutic drugs

What’s the deal? For the most part, Methotrexate is used alone or together with other medicines to treat several types of cancer such as breast, head and neck, lung, blood, bone, lymph node and uterus cancers.
What are the side effects?
  • Cause fetal death and congenital anomalies.
  • Liver and Kidney toxicity.
  • Bone marrow depression.
  • Lung disease ­ which can be fatal.
  • Reacts with NSAID’s ­ which can be fatal.
  • May cause intestinal bleeding and ulceration.
  • Depresses the immune system.
Coumadin or Warfarin:

What’s the deal? Anticoagulant (blood thinner) which prevents the formation and migration of blood clots.
What are the side effects?
  • Hemorrhage (bleeding)
Cholesterol Lowering Drugs:

What’s the deal? There are multiple types. Some of these drugs (Atromid and Lopid) work by absorbing bile acids which are produced from cholesterol in the intestinal tract and cause them to be excreted, thereby lowering the levels of cholesterol circulating in the blood. Statin drugs reduce production of cholesterol in the liver and alter the way in which LDL cholesterol enters the cells. 
What are the side effects? 
  • Myositis – inflammation of the muscles. 
  • Rhabdomyolysis (rare) – With this condition, muscles all over the body become painful and weak. The severely damaged muscles release proteins into the blood that collect in the kidneys. The kidneys can become damaged trying to eliminate a large amount of muscle breakdown caused by statin use. This can ultimately lead to kidney failure.

(YOU definitely do not want rhabdomylosis and considering Linus Pauling's Nobel prize for the cure of heart disease, there is NO need to be on a statin drug to begin with).


Prozac and anti-depressants:

What’s the deal? Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, Lovan and Luvox belong to a class of drugs which alter the mechanism that balances levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin in the brain. Serotonin affects mood, agitation, anxiety and sleep. These drugs mock the re-uptake or removal of serotonin by nerve cells in the brain, thus leaving more serotonin to bind to the receptor sites. This has been shown to alter mood and behavior.
What are the side effects? The FDA has admitted that antidepressants can worsen depression and suicidal symptoms in some patients. Other side effects include:
  • nausea
  • increased appetite and weight gain
  • loss of sexual desire and other sexual problems, such as erectile dysfunction and decreased orgasm
  • fatigue and drowsiness
  • insomnia
  • dry mouth
  • blurred vision
  • constipation
  • dizziness
  • agitation
  • irritability
  • anxiety
Ritalin, Cylert, Drexadine and Adderal:

What’s the deal? It produces such effects as increasing or maintaining alertness, combating fatigue and improving attention. Traditionally used to treat ADD or ADHD in children. It has also been used to treat narcolepsy. Frighteningly enough, Dr. Bruce Perry, a world-renowned ADHD expert, has stated that ADHD is not a real disease. 
What’s the risk? 
  • Abdominal pain
  • Alopecia (loss of hair)
  • Angina (chest pain)
  • Appetite loss
  • Anxiety/Nervousness
  • Blood pressure and pulse changes (both up and down)
  • Cardiac arrhythmia
  • Depression
  • Diaphoresis (sweating)
  • Dizziness
  • Hypersensitivity 
  • Psychosis and psychiatric disorders 
  • Stunted growth
  • Suicidal ideation
  • Tachycardia
Beta Blockers and Calcium Channel Blockers:

What’s the deal? A class of drugs used to lower blood pressure.
What’s the risk? Calcium channel blockers – In an ongoing study, Bruce Psaty, M.D., compared 291 patients taking calcium channel blockers for hypertension to 1,240 people with the same condition, but taking other drugs. He found that patients who were taking large amounts of calcium channel blockers for high blood pressure had a 60% higher death rate compared to patients taking diuretics or beta blockers.
  • shortness of breath
  • cold extremities
  • palpitations
  • congestive heart failure
