Prescription Drugs their Side Effects:
What Your Doctor Has Not Told You

Doctors don't tell you the long term dangers of prescription drugs their side effects!

Here’s surprise side effects of drugs you were told are “harmless:”

  • breast cancer increases from aspirin and ibuprofen long term use
  • dementia, pneumonia and kidney disease due to reflux meds
  • Alzheimers increases from blood thinners especially if used for AFIB heart irregularities
  • increased cancer risk (25%) from using cholesterol lowering meds, statins
  • cancer, heart attack and stroke increases with pain relief meds called NSAIDs: acetaminophen (Tylenol) or aspirin. COX-2 inhibitors, such as celecoxib (Celebrex)

Common Prescription Drugs Their Side Effects 

Your doctor will likely NOT know the LONG TERM side effects and dangers

Yes, you take your medications to feel better! Less pain, less reflux, blood clot danger is less, lower cholesterol. This is good...short term.

Problem is that these meds BLOCK, or SUPPRESS and INHIBIT. This, say scientists, leads to BIG problems long term!

  • Blocking pain, reflux, blood clots etc. sounds good at first… but:  

TROUBLE is that these medications also block other essential processes in your body.  Here’s how these “blocking actions” cause serious problems:

“Harmless” Pain Relief Meds: Cancer & Heart Disease

NSAIDs are drugs used to treat pain and inflammation for rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.  (indomethacin (Indocin),  ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), naproxen (Naprosyn), piroxicam (Feldene), and nabumetone (Relafen)

MAIN EFFECT:  These pain relief meds BLOCK an enzyme that causes inflammation and pain.   Sounds good? So far so good…but it does not end there:

Breast cancer linked to daily use of pain killers

UNWANTED EFFECT # 1:  Even the seemingly harmless asprin and ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) is associated with increased breast cancer. 1

UNWANTED EFFECT # 2:  In 2005, the FDA warned that all NSAIDs carry heart risks. In particular, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) and diclofenac (Cataflam, Voltaren) cause increased risks for heart attack and stroke.

Heart disease risk is a well known effect of the regular use of NSAIDs pain relief meds.

UNWANTED EFFECT # 3:  Since then, COX2 enzyme inhibiting drugs (such as Celebrex and Bextra)  have been linked to:

  • heart attacks and stroke
  • intestinal bleeding
  • kidney or liver impairment
  • respiratory infections. 2

Heart Burn Reflux meds Dexilant Side Effects 

The esophagus cannot tolerate stomach acid, causing pain, damage, and can lead to cancer.

MAIN EFFECT of Heartburn meds for GERD (Protein Pump Inhibitors, PPI’s Prevacid, Nexium and Prilosec)

  • These BLOCK and INHIBIT the production of stomach acid. You have less stomach acid "backing up” into the esophagus, causing pain. This is good, because stomach acid damages the lining of the esophagus, leading eventually to cancer.

So far so good…but:

UNWANTED EFFECTS # 1: Trouble is that you need stomach acid as a first line of defense against infections – it kills "bugs".

Reflux meds also alter the gut bacteria balance (dysbiosis) , so that it is easier to get food poisoning (salmonella,  E. coli, C Difficile, etc) and pneumonia.

UNWANTED EFFECTS # 2:  By reducing stomach acid, Nexium dexilant side effects result in nutritionsl deficiencies. You need stomach acid to digest your food, so that nutrients can be well absorbed.

With less acid, minerals such as calcium, magnesium and vitamins are not effectively absorbed. 

  • Lack of calcium absorption leads to osteoporosis, bone fractures, (hip, wrist, or spine fractures) and calcification of the arteries.
  • Magnesium deficiency causes seizures, dizziness, heart irregularities, jitteriness, jerking movements or shaking (tremors), muscle weakness, spasms of the hands and feet, cramps or muscle aches
  • Vitamin deficiencies, such as the lack of vitamin B 12 which leads to anemia, are also common.

So, before your doctor prescribes you MORE medications for these symptoms, such as AFIB and heart irregularities, take NATURAL supplements against these deficiencies!!!

UNWANTED EFFECTS # 3: Kidney disease and dementia are also linked to use of reflux meds. 3

Side Effects of Blood Thinners 

Side effects of blood thinners include calcification of the arteries, and increased bleeding strokes

MAIN EFFECT: The blood thinner warfarin, or Coumadin, blocks your liver so it makes less vitamin K, the “clotting vitamin.”  Sounds good, since you don’t want blood clots.  But there is more...

UNWANTED EFFECT # 1: These also BLOCK the healing of injuries, bruises and wounds, both external and internal.  Side effects of blood thinners include unwanted bleeding and bleeding strokes.

When this happens there is no antidote to stop such bleeding.  For this reason these are rated among the most dangerous drugs on the market!

UNWANTED EFFECT # 2: Trouble is that the side effects of these blood thinners cause a vitamin k deficiency. This increases your chances for arterial calcification, osteoporosis bone fracture, and cancer. 

UNWANTED EFFECT #3: Blood clot meds are being linked to Alzheimers and diabetes.

Statins, Simvastatin Side Effects Muscle Pain & Aging 

Don't blame how you feel on being old -- suspect your medications instead!

MAIN EFFECT: Statins lower cholesterol levels, and reduce risk for a heart attack, but not the risk of a stroke.

UNWANTED EFFECTS:  Simvastatin muscle pain and memory problems are recognized.  But did you know it also increases risk for Cancer in the elderly?   

A large study showed that cancer rates were 25 per cent higher in the group taking pravastatin.  Risk reduction of non-fatal and fatal heart attacks (added together) was 19 per cent in the group taking the statin. Stroke incidence was not affected.

Cancer rates were 25 per cent higher in the group taking pravastatin. Overall, risk of death was the same between the groups. 4

UNWANTED EFFECT: Statin drugs SUPPRESS your body’s own “stem cell” production. These are the cells in you need to regenerate and renew the tissues or your organs.

By INHIBITING this renewal process, statins SPEED UP the aging process!! This makes you more susceptible to all the diseases of aging. Your vitality is likely  affected. 5

  • That does not bode well for statins and the aging brain! Not only is cholesterol needed by the brain for thinking and cognition, but also is used to make essential hormones.  

Your doctor may not take your complaints seriously and just see you as being old.  Typically they do NOT recognize your symptoms as statin or simvastatin side effects muscle pain and memory loss.

1.   Breast Cancer and Aspirin and Ibuprofin 

In this study, Sarah F. Marshall and colleagues of the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, analysed 114,460 women aged 22 to 85 who participated in the California Teachers Study cohort. These women were breast cancer-free when the study started in 1995 and 1996. Then, after a 6-year follow-up, 2,391 women were diagnosed with breast cancer, with known receptor status.

This study found that regular use of NSAIDs (defined as more than once a week) was not linked with an increased breast cancer risk.

  • However, long term daily use of aspirin was associated with an increased risk of estrogen receptor/progesterone receptor (ER/PR)-negative breast cancer.
  • And long term daily use of ibuprofen was associated with breast cancer, particularly nonlocalized cancer respectively.

4.     Benefits of Statins? In this large study, risk reduction of non-fatal and fatal heart attacks (added together) was 19 per cent in the group taking the statin. Stroke incidence was not affected. Cancer rates were 25 per cent higher in the group taking pravastatin. Overall, risk of death was the same between the groups.

5.      Statins are linked to increased diabetes, heart attacks, muscle fatigue and memory loss and they accelerate aging:

In fact, after only a few weeks of use, the study revealed that statins “prevented stem cells from performing their main functions, to reproduce and replicate other cells in the body to carry out repairs…[statins also] prevented stem cells from generating new bone and cartilage…[and] increased ageing.”
