All the Pretty Pills - Prescription Drug Withdrawal Help

Press release from: Point of Return

Los Angeles, CA Nov-Dec 2010 It's impossible to watch a television show or open a magazine without seeing a drug ad. The images of perfect families, happy, successful men and women in romantic relationships are strong lures. The ability to soften stressful times is enticing and the idea of sleeping soundly is appealing. And although the side effects and some of the hazards are provided, Americans continue to reach for pills at an alarming rate. See Prescription Drug Withdrawal Help.

The downturn in the economy has left many struggling with insomnia. Enter sleeping pills (Ambien, Lunesta). Stress has become a painful symptom in such uncertain times. Anxiety medications (Xanax, Ativan, Klonopin, Valium) are waiting to ease the pain. If struggling to start your day, then add a stimulant (Adderall, Ritalin). When financial woes are affecting your mood, then a slew of Antidepressants are available (Paxil, Wellbutrin, Prozac, Zoloft, Lexapro, Pristiq, Effexor, Celexa). Of course if the antidepressant isn't enough, add an antipsychotic (Abilify, Seroquel). As high blood pressure ensues, then a pill for hypertension is in order. The stomach clenches and a proton pump inhibitor is required to reduce the acid production (Omeprazole, Lansoprazole, Pantoprazole). Pain increases as a side effect of the other pills and of course an opiate is appropriate. Then join a friend for a few drinks or take an antihistamine for allergies or a cold.

What is the personal cost of all these pills?

Adverse reaction to medications are taking lives daily yet too often the public believes that being legal all pills are safe. Many combinations of medications suppress the central nervous system, depressing respiration or adversely affect heart rhythms. And unfortunately if the combination proves lethal, too often it is deemed 'natural causes' and the pills are not held responsible. Even small amounts of central nervous system agents can diminish lung capacity and over time leave an individual susceptible to pneumonia. The addition of antibiotics and antihistamines with existing prescriptions can further complicate the situation and stop breathing. Brittany Murphy, Corey Haim and many others may fall into this category. Visit Prescription Drug Withdrawal Help.

It isn't just the interaction between medications that poses a risk, it is the declining health caused by many pills for sleep, anxiety and depression. Pain can increase, the immune system breaks down, worsening sleep and anxiety can ensue, weight gain, hair loss and eroding mental symptoms. Yet often these side effects are misinterpreted and more pills are prescribed. It is a vicious cycle that millions are caught in.

It's time for a paradigm shift regarding our health. Our current model is based on illness and until we approach our health with a wellness perspective, injuries and deaths from pills will continue to soar. Our bodies are miraculous and deserve much better than what we have all received through cocktails of pharmaceuticals.
