How Dangerous Are Prescription Drugs?
Many people believe that if a medication was prescribed to them by a doctor, then it must be safe. On the contrary: Using a prescription medication can be just as dangerous as using a street drug.
It is estimated that 51 percent of the drugs that have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration have dangerous side effects. Many of these side effects were not detected before the drug was approved. Painkillers and drugs that are used to treat arthritis are among the most dangerous types of drugs to use.
Common Side Effects
Digestive problems, irregular heartbeat, kidney failure, suicidal thoughts, and liver toxicity are some of the side effects that are commonly associated with using prescription drugs. People who take multiple medications at the same time are at a greater risk for experiencing negative side effects. Some drugs may interact with other medications.
Drug manufacturers are responsible for educating doctors about the possible side effects of the medications that they produce. However, in many cases, drug manufacturers do not warn people about the possible side effects of using their medication. In fact, some drug manufacturers do not even test their drugs properly before they are administered to patients. As a result of this, many people have suffered dangerous side effects after taking medications. There have also been many deaths caused by dangerous drug side effects.
Prescription Drug Statistics
Studies have shown that the number of people dying from prescription drug reactions or overdoses is increasing.
It is estimated that there are 1.5 million people each year who suffer a severe injury after using a prescription drug. Furthermore, prescription drugs cause 100,000 deaths each year.
