[Alert] Popular Heart Drug Totally USELESS
When you have a heart attack, you’re GUARANTEED to leave the hospital with a stack of drug prescriptions.
Doctors will tell you that you NEED all of these pills… and that they’re saving your life.
But that’s total nonsense.
Because one of the top drugs given to heart attack patients has been proven COMPLETELY WORTHLESS.
And if you or someone you love has heart issues, this dud drug may be sitting in your medicine cabinet right now.
A recent study from the University of Leeds in the UK has revealed that beta blockers, often prescribed after heart attacks, are far less helpful than we’ve ever known.
In fact, they’re downright USELESS.
Researchers looked at nearly 180,000 patients who suffered a heart attack. Of those, 95 percent were given beta blockers.
And guess what?
There was NO DIFFERENCE in the death rates between the folks who got beta blockers, and the folks who didn’t.
No benefit. Nada.
Sadly, this isn’t the first we’re hearing about beta blockers being completely ineffective.
Last year, a study revealed that these drugs did nothing for patients who needed angioplasty.
For that study, researchers examined records of more than 755,000 heart patients.
They focused on patients who underwent angioplasty due to recurring chest pain, 71 percent of whom were prescribed beta blockers.
The results again found that death rates for beta blocker users were no different from those of non-users – even years after the procedure.
Additionally, heart attack and stroke rates were nearly identical for both groups!
And it gets worse: 8 percent of beta blocker users were ultimately readmitted to the hospital for heart failure while only 6.1 of non-users were readmitted.
Frankly, beta blockers won’t do a darn thing to benefit your health or prolong your life.
If you or a loved one is taking beta blockers for cardiac issues, it’s time you discussed this decision with your doc.
There’s a good chance these meds aren’t doing a thing.
