Prescription drugs can be dangerous.  This is an undeniable fact.  We are living in a country where the our emphasis in healthcare has moved away from a "pro-active/keeping healthy model" and towards a "reactive/how do we manage our sick poplulations symptoms with pharmacetical intervention model."  The reality is we need to be arming people with pro-active knowledge of how to better take care of their bodies.  Proper nutrition, vigorous exercise, adequate rest, and chiropractic care are all vital parts of keeping our bodies healthy and strong and preventing us from reliance on prescription meds.  When I talk to my patients many of them are shocked when information like this becomes available to them.  For more information on living better check out our website hoctorfamilychiropractic.com

Here is a list created by Marta Rosenberg that highlights the drugs which made 2010's Hall of Shame.

Yaz and Yasmin

Soon after Bayer launched the pill Yaz, 18 year olds started coming down with blood clots, gall bladder disease, heart attacks and even strokes.

Chantix

After cases of possible psychosis, reports of suicidal behaviors and actual suicides, the government banned pilots, air-traffic controllers and interstate truck and bus drivers from taking this antismoking drug.

Ambien

Law enforcement officials say this sleep drug has increased traffic accidents from people who drive in a black out.

Tamoxifen

For every case of breast cancer prevented by Tamoxifen, there is a life-threatening case of blood clots, stroke or endometrial cancer caused by it.

Lipitor and Crestor

All statins can cause muscle breakdown. Crestor is so linked to the side effect, the FDA's David Graham named it one of the five most dangerous drugs at a Congressional hearing.

Gardasil and Cervarix Vaccines

The Gardasil HPV vaccine doesn't work for all viral strains, requires a booster and is linked to 56 girls' deaths as of September in the U.S. alone.

Singulair and Accolate, leukotriene receptor antagonists

These leukotriene receptor antagonists never looked safe. And Singulair, Merck's top selling drug, is now suspected of producing aggression, hostility, irritability, anxiety, hallucinations and night-terrors in kids.
