Hi everyone, I came across this interesting story on KYPost.com about bad combinations of drugs. It's an issue that is getting a lot of exposure as more and more Americans are increasing the amount of medications we take on a daily basis. I thought this would be an interesting read for anyone on this site that is struggling with the frustration of dealing with pain and numerous medications. I also believe that more people our age are starting to open up their minds to using natural vitamins and [Link Removed].

    • I currently taken about 20 different medications.  I feel like a pharmacy and am not happy with all the side effects of these drugs.  I have done this for quite a while, (years).  I got fed up and started taking myself off ALL the medications. I know there could/will be even worse effects from quitting, but I’d rather live a life that is happy and drug free than being a guinea pig for my doctors.   They all know what I am taking and what scares me the most the biggest side effect to all the drugs is serious liver problems.  Yet, NO doctor has yet to do a test to check the liver.  If they aren’t serious enough to worry about something as serious as the liver then I don’t want anymore to do with them.  I ask each of them about it each time I go, they always says ask your family doctor to do the test.  What the heck?  Do they not want the responsiblity?

    • Great article. The sad part is that I was one of those who was on one too many meds! And therefore, suffered with all the side effects of them and was just put on one after the other because of those side effects. And not once did I ever have a dr even tell me to get on vitamins, supplements, nutritionals. The saddest part was that I used to work for dr’s. And I was the first person ready to get the next “latest and greatest pill” to help me with all my gastrointestinal, female, sensitivity to lights, noises, exttreme lows and high moods, etc, etc, issues. And even sadder, was that I would get them AND give to my family. I never realized until I started doing my due diligence and FINALLY (like anonymous) decided to take control of my own health. Thanks to the amazing nutritionals that I now take, and to the “all vital organ at a cellular level cleanse that I use, I am now happier and “healthier” than I’ve ever been in my life not too mention two in a half dress sizes smaller. Many women don’t realize that this is a cause for not being able to shed lbs and inches as well. My female challenges started at the age of 22! And by the time I reached 39, I was no longer living life nor did I want to.  Again, thanks for sharing this amazing article. And you are correct, many of us are starting to take notice and stand up to the fact that we should not live a life on prescription meds. This is the bandaid approach and the side effects are more damaging than people can ever imagine.
