Medication Side Effects

Medication side effects need to be taken seriously. In today’s day and age of free wheelin’ prescriptions, you may be tempted to start using pharmaceutical drugs in an attempt to relieve the symptoms of what ails you.

medication bottle and pills...is it worth it?

We fully understand you’re looking for help.

However, we encourage you to consider the side effects and then weigh those against the possibility of using natural and safer methods.

It might just be that you aren’t aware yet how many options are available for conditions such as anxiety, depression, chest pains, high blood pressure, stress, breathing issues, and any number of issues where pharmaceuticals have been developed.

Let’s explore what you need to know about medication side effects and then we’ll show you how you can explore alternative ways to get help.

They All Have Side Effects

The first thing to realize when taking drugs is they all have some form of negative outcome. It’s just that some have less harmful potential than others.

For example, almost every drug on the market has the potential to cause nausea or other stomach issues with a certain percentage of people.

Then there are allergy drugs, such as Allegra, that help reduce sneezing, itchy eyes, and coughing, but can also cause you to become sleepy or even end up with backaches and muscle pain.

Common Medication Side Effects

  • Amnesia: This happened with a drug called Mirapex, which was brought out in 1997 for people with Restless Leg Syndrome, as well as those with Parkinson’s. That’s a serious side effect because you could easily take far too many pills due to the fact that you can’t remember how many you took already.

    Statins, such as Lipitor, which are used to lower cholesterol levels, have also been linked to amnesia effects.

    By the way, Mirapex users have also reported hallucinations. Mirapex has been linked to outright changing the behaviors of people taking it, where they become alcoholics, shopaholics, or gamblers (and they previously didn’t have these issues).
  • Change in Urine Color: What would you do if you woke up one day and saw that your urine was black or purple? What a shock! Here are some drugs that will do this:

    The diuretic drug Dyrenium can turn urine blue. So can Urised, which is to help bladder infections.

    The antibiotic Flagyl can turn your urine black.

    The antidepressant drug called Elavil (also used on children dealing with wetting the bed) can turn your urine green. So can the muscle relaxant, Robaxin.

    The laxative phenolphthalein can turn your urine purple. Its other possible “side effect”? Cancer…wow!
  • Sense of Taste & Smell…gone: A drug called Vasotec (for congestive heart failure and high blood pressure) has been known to cause folks to lose their sense of smell and taste. It can also lead to vision that becomes blurry and tinnitus (ringing in the ears).

    Going further with blurred vision, the erectile dysfunction drug Viagra has been known to cause this, as well as issues with being able to tell the difference between green and blue. Univ of Minnesota researchers even put out the 2005 theory that people taking Viagra could potentially end up losing their vision permanently (from the optic nerve having its blood supply cut off).
  • Night Terrors/Nightmares: The “stop smoking” drug, Chantix, can cause night terrors. This is a serious issue for those experiencing it, as they wake up moaning and screaming. The insomnia drug, Lunesta, has also caused night terrors.

    As well, Ambien and Lunesta can cause serious issues when users have done surprising activities while sleeping: making a phone call, driving (yes, people have woken up to find themselves driving their car), having sex, or eating.
  • Lariam (a drug the U.S. Army used to give out for malaria outbreaks) and the antidepressant Paxil have been shown to create suicidal thoughts. Lariam has also been linked to the murders of soldiers’ wives, and soldier suicides.

As you can see, medication side effects are not to be taken lightly and we haven’t been able to provide you every side effect for every drug on the market. It’s up to you to do your due diligence.

Alternatives to Drug Medication

There are natural remedies available for most every condition you or a loved one may encounter. For example, there are remedies that don’t include drugs for irritable bowel syndrome, high blood pressure, asthma, COPD, digestive issues, just to name a few (link to these pages on the site).

One common thread you’ll see throughout many physical conditions, such as the ones we listed above, or even nausea, gas, chest pains, dizziness, depression, headaches, etc, is stress.

This is where sound therapy comes in. Sound therapy helps relieve the very root of most problems facing all of us today in that it helps reduce stress and anxiety. The amazing thing is that when your stress is relieved, most physical manifestations of that stress are also relieved.

When you’re stressed, the cells of your body begin to lose their ability to properly communicate. In the chaos of stress, you experience physical issues. Everyone’s different and this is why some experience depression, panic attacks, migraines, stomach issues, or blood pressure issues.

Sound therapy sends specific vibrational frequencies to your cells, allows them to communicate once more, and is a fantastic alternative to drugs and the medication side effects they cause.
