Do You Trust Your Medications?

With the recent news story of a man in Florida allegedly using “bath salts” and then attacking another man, ultimately eating the man’s face, it may be time to take a good, long look at the prescription drugs you yourself are using. The fact is, while the Food and Drug Administration in the United States works tirelessly to keep up with the latest in health concerns and medications, and while the Drug Enforcement Agency of the United States keeps track of growing and emerging trends within the illegal drug world, you can never be too safe.

Bath Salts

Bath salts contain methylone and methylenedioxypyrovalerone, and currently, these drugs are legal in many states. Additionally, these drugs can cause mild euphoria, but they also come along with psychosis, increased body temperature, confusion, chest pains, disorientation and a host of other unpleasant side effects. Unfortunately, because these drugs have not yet been officially banned, they are still being legally sold in many areas and they are still adversely affecting the country. Unfortunately, what the public often sees is that harmful drugs are made legal once a pharmaceutical company has a chance to refine them, but this doesn’t always take away the danger; in some cases, it increases it.

What this means in terms of medication and healthcare is that many prescription drugs and over-the-counter drugs sold today may be just as toxic, but because they are sanctioned by official sources, most people don’t realize the dire consequences that can follow. For instance, many pain, anxiety and depression management drugs offered by today’s pharmaceutical companies have been implicated in psychosis-inducing episodes, worsening conditions and more. Unfortunately, because the vast majority of people in the United States, and around the world, place their faith in the FDA and DEA, they are under the impression that approved drugs are safe; at times, this is completely untrue.

If you’re one of the many people who are currently taking prescription drugs for anxiety, depression, stress-related illnesses or other conditions, you may want to consider turning to natural alternatives instead. Natural supplements are available at a fraction of the cost of prescription drugs, and many are just as effective, if not more so, at treating these conditions. These supplements are also derived from natural sources, meaning they are not manmade pharmaceuticals, and most pose a lesser risk to your health. If you’re questioning your own medications and their effects, always speak with your doctor before beginning any natural supplement replacement.
