The 5 Most Dangerous Pain Medications...

Advil... Aleve... Bayer... Celebrex... Demerol... Motrin... Naproxen... Oxycontin... Percocet... Tylenol... Ultram... Vicodin...
Find Out Which Are Safe and Which Can Be Deadly...
When you think of dangerous drugs, what comes to mind first? Heroin?... Cocaine?... LSD?...
... How about pain pills?
Pain medications and adverse drug reactions are the 4th leading cause of death in the U.S.... only behind heart disease, cancer and strokes!
What does this mean to you?
It means your risk of dying from that pain medicine in your cabinet could be higher than your chance of dying from diabetes, lung disease, or even an accident unless you take heed to this special report.
The results of our investigation are shocking... But they could save your life.
Dangerous Pain Meds #5: Salicylates (Aspirin)
Common names: aspirin, acetylsalicylate

Think aspirin is safe? Think again!
gher doses or prolonged use at the lower dose even in buffered or coated form can double your likelihood of perforated ulcers and gastrointestinal bleeding.

Research shows 90-95% of Reye s Syndrome cases were preceded by taking aspirin
. The disease devastates internal organs, particularly the brain and liver, and at least 10% of those affected will die even with early treatment.

Dangerous Pain Meds #4: Acetaminophen
Common names: Tylenol, acetaminophen
e "doctor's choice" is disturbingly dangerous to take! Just check out these stats if you don't believe me...

Every year, more than 56,000 people will visit the emergency room due to acetaminophen overdoses. It s the leading cause of calls to Poison Control Centers.
It s the leading cause of acute liver failure, causing nearly half of all cases!
Dangerous Pain Meds #3: Opiate-Based Pain Meds
Common names: Vicodin, Lorcet, Norco, Percocet, Percodan, hydrocodone, oxycodone
If you've ever had surgery, a major accident, or any other major trauma to your body... you were likely given an opiate-based pain med to knock out the pain.

Unfortunately, knocking out the pain has it's consequences!
16,000 - That s the number of people who died in the United States in one year from drug overdoses. Most were caused by opiates.

In 2002... deaths from prescription opiate overdoses had nearly doubled.

Dangerous Pain Medicine #2: NSAIDs
Common names: Advil, Aleve, ibuprofen, naproxen
Do you have some kind of chronic pain? Arthritis... back pain... neck pain... something else?
Chances are you ve been taking one of the common NSAIDs like ibuprofen or naproxen to deal with the pain
And speaking of chances...
The odds of dying from taking a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug after just two months is around 1 in 1,200.

Roughly 16,685 people die each year from NSAID related complications... making them just as dangerous as AIDS!

The biggest known risk of NSAIDs is from gastrointestinal ulcers and bleeding.
We re not talking about a little tummy ache here, but severe bleeding and possibly death after the medicine destroys your gut. And that s not the only known risk.

Dangerous Pain Medicine #1: Cox-2 Inhibitors

Common names: Celebrex, celecoxib

How would you like to triple your risk of heart attack?
Just pick up a prescription of Celebrex.
While studying the drug s potential as an anti-cancer drug, the National Cancer Institute discovered that...

Those taking 400mg doses had 250% greater risk of dying from heart attack or stroke... and those taking the 800mg doses has 340% times the risk!

this is the second posting from Mr. Chandrasekharan using this site "World Malayali Club" as a source.

Every day getting out of bed or going to bed there is a chance that you will die. Every act in life has the risk of death or accident. The water you drink the air you breathe might kill you or make you sick.
So if you are worried about the side affects of medicine, read the caution labels and talk to your medical provider before self medicating. If you take over the counter medicine do so according to need and as per the instruction of your physician.

Please do not get scared by posts of this kind, and suffer the pain.
Please do not use red color it is for the moderator.

Mr. Chandrasekharan what is the point of scare mongering in the name of educating members in this site. Do you have alternative safe and effective pain medicine that you can recommend, and are you a trained physician?
Every medicine has some side effect or other as they are chemical substances meant to interact with the body fluid. It is better to let doctors decide than to roil ourselves over imagined dangers. Alternatively one can adopt the Pentecostal method of offering prayers to god and expect him to cure.
