Would you like drugs with your drugs?
It's absurd if you ever pause to think about it: Millions of Americans right now are taking drugs not because they're sick, and not to help manage a disease or condition.
They're taking meds exclusively to deal with the side effects of other meds.
How crazy is that?
This isn't getting better. Over the years, it's gotten worse -- and if a new study is any indication, it's about to reach a ridiculous new level.
Because in this case, researchers want you to take a whole new set of meds -- and face a whole new set of risks -- to deal with the side effects of a drug you never even needed in the first place.
This study focused on SSRI antidepressants, which can turn once-solid bone into toothpicks.
Folks who take the drugs for long periods often suffer weaker, thinner bone and a higher risk of breaks and fractures as a result.
These injuries are bad enough in young folks. But in seniors? These fractures can be devastating, leading to permanent disability, especially if they don't heal right.
Now, researchers claim you might stop the bone loss by taking the beta-blockers usually given to folks with high blood pressure.
The study -- on mice, not people -- finds that the SSRI drug Prozac stops new bone from forming. But once the mice were put on beta-blockers, the bone loss stopped.
As a result, the researchers think it might be a good idea to give folks at risk of bone loss -- especially seniors -- a beta-blocker when they take an SSRI drug.
The irony here is that beta-blockers can lead to dizziness -- which can cause you to fall over and break the very bones you were trying to protect!
One study even found that blood pressure drugs such as beta-blockers increase the risk of serious fall injuries by a stunning 40 percent -- making it downright irresponsible to recommend these meds for bone protection.
There's a much simpler solution here -- one so obvious you'd have to be a researcher NOT to see it. Don't take the antidepressants in the first place!
The mainstream wants you to believe these meds are the best... and in some cases ONLY... way to treat depression.
But that's just nonsense.
One study found that curcumin -- a natural brain-boosting compound found in the spice turmeric -- can ease and in some cases even cure depression.
Ready for the most important part?
That study found it to be as effective as Prozac... the very drug used in the new study!
