Popular Drug DOUBLES Your Heart Risk!
If mainstream medicine wasn’t in the business of saving lives, I’d bet it was trying to kill us.
The number of medications and procedures that are just as likely to hurt you as they are to help you is staggering.
Case in point: There’s one very popular drug (to the tune of 269 million prescriptions per year) that can save your life.
The problem? It can also more than DOUBLE your risk of a deadly heart condition.
Fortunately, there are safer alternatives.
There’s no doubt that antibiotics have saved millions of lives. But for some people, they’ve done just the opposite.
The dangers associated with one particular class of antibiotics —called fluoroquinolones—keep going from bad to worse.
Years ago, “floxins” received the dreaded black box warning from the FDA because people who took them antibiotics sudden, unexplained tendon ruptures.
A few years later, the FDA issued an even stronger warning because they cause peripheral neuropathy (permanent nerve damage that typically cause numbness, tingling, and pain in your arms and legs).
But wait, there’s more!
Another review—again by the FDA—found that floxins can tear your aorta – the largest artery in your body.
And now, a careful review of the FDA’s adverse reporting system has revealed SOMETHING ELSE…
People who have taken causes in the past 30 days have a 2.5 times increased risk of developing a deadly heart valve condition.
And those who have taken them within the last 60 days were 1.5 times more likely to develop the condition.
It’s called aortic or mitral regurgitation, and it occurs when one of those valves essentially springs a leak.
In severe cases, it could lead to heart failure… surgery… or death.
This is ridiculous.
No drug with these kinds of side effects should be allowed to remain on the market. The FDA shouldn’t allow it, and no self-respecting doctor should prescribe them.
I hope this latest finding will be the final nail in floxins’ coffin. But even if it’s not, YOU don’t have to be impacted because there are safer options.
Next time you need an antibiotic, don’t just blindly get the prescription filled. Find out what your doctor has prescribed.
And if it’s any one of the floxins, talk to him about a safer alternative.
