Here’s surprise side effects of drugs you were told are “harmless:”
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!
TROUBLE is that these medications also block other essential processes in your body. Here’s how these “blocking actions” cause serious problems:
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:
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.
UNWANTED EFFECT # 3: Since then, COX2 enzyme inhibiting drugs (such as Celebrex and Bextra) have been linked to:

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

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.

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

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.”
