Before You Take That Pill by Valerie Cheers Brown

“Before you treat a man with a condition, know that not all cures can heal all people. For the chemistry that works on one patient may not work for the next, because even medicine has its own conditions.”  ― Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

What makes an individual think that if pain medication doesn’t work the first time, that by taking more it will?

Don’t you realize that you are becoming addicted by pain medication and after taking so much our bodies become immuned and will not work anymore?

Do you feel that doctors in America are over prescribing pain medication?

Why are pain medications so easily accessible in America and then when people become addicted we say the person has a drug addiction?

Do we have that many people in pain and when do we really heal and cure instead of self-medicating people?

If medication is to relieve pain, shouldn’t it work with the first pill or even the 2nd or even the 3rd?

Why do we have to prescribe say for example more than one pill for seven days if we are in pain?

If we are in such pain, should we maybe result to something which will help pain the very time it is taken, i.e. cannabis oil, cannabis, etc.

I cannot believe some of the questions doctors ask you!

Do you need something for pain?

Should the patient be telling you that they are in pain and shouldn’t you diagnose them with some kind of pain issues before issuing prescribed medication?

Many pharmacies are supposed to keep track of your medications which you take when we get them filled there and they should know contradictions, and should warn you of a medication contradiction, but if you go someplace else, they won’t know unless you let them know the medications you are on and we are setting ourselves up for suicide when taking prescribed medications with many contradictions and not checking before we take a new medication with already taking medication.

It is not up to the doctors or pharmacies really to protect you from taking medications with contradictions!  They can only ask and do not know what we are taking and when they prescribe they only go by what we tell them. It is up to us to save our own lives.

We had better be keeping track of these things ourselves.

If you are anybody who takes prescribed medications with OTC, you had better be paying attention to the contradictions which cause you to become sicker or even death.

I have mentioned once and will mention again, when taking many prescribed medications, the last thing you should use is a pill box with the days of the week.

The first thing I learned when giving meds in nursing school was “Adherence to the Five Rights of medication safety (administering the Right Medication, in the Right Dose, at the Right time, by the Right Route, to the Right Patient).”

Keep a journal of how the pill affects you and pay attention to whether it works or not and how can you do this when taking all of those pills at one time when they all work differently and we all as human’s bodies work differently also.

Here is a list of books which may help when taking prescribed medications and highly recommend if you take more than one pill, you need to own one.

All medications are not to be taken the same way nor time and is a big reason many are becoming sicker and/or even dead because of the way we are taking our prescribed medications. YOU MUST TAKE ACCORDING TO PRESCRIBED DIRECTIONS ON THE BOTTLE IN ORDER FOR THEM TO WORK.

I will keep saying this and just in case you may forget, “You should always take your medications from your medicine bottles and if you are forgetful, you should keep some kind of written record as you take them and also you should keep a journal of what they do for you and if any side affects you should keep track for sure, but take from the bottle and follow the instructions per the bottle.

If you line your medications up right now, you will see that each one has different directions and it is up to you take accordingly and not take them all at once.

After you take each pill, you should keep a record of the time you take it, with what you take it with, etc. Most importantly keep a record of how they pill makes you feel and even it works write it down and keep a record for if something happens you have a record.

When you go to the doctor, they always say bring your pill bottle,  NOT YOUR PILLBOX!

PEOPLE NO DISRESPECT, BUT USE COMMON SENSE WHEN TAKING PRESCRIBED MEDICATIONS!

These things are very important and pill boxes are only shortening your life!

I cannot make anybody pay any attention to this blog, but I pray that you realize that the life you save is your very own and it is up to you take your medications properly and according to the prescribed medicine bottle instructions.

I don’t care what doctors say, don’t take those pills from a pill box and know what those pill boxes will do and they will take you out of here way before your time!

If you want to live longer and on many prescribed medications say no to pill boxes please!

FYI: You cannot go according to the color of the pill and not even the shape of the pill for they change very often, so please take from your medication from the bottle and also

You will not see too many public shared articles stating death by medicine stats, but according to “Death by Medicine” by Gary Nuff, PhD, Carolyn Dean, ND; Martin Feldman, MD; Debora Rasio, MD. and Dorothy Smith, PhD, something is really wrong when regulatory agencies ignore published statistics showig that government-sanctioned medicine is a real hazard.

In this report is shown numbers of unnecessary prescribed medications being given to patients causing all kinds of fatalities, even death.

There are many who disagree with this report, but wanted you to take a look at for yourself and do you own research.

A definitive review and close reading of medical peer-review journals, and government health statistics shows that American medicine frequently causes more harm than good. The number of people having in-hospital, adverse drug reactions (ADR) to prescribed medicine is 2.2 million. Dr. Richard Besser, of the CDC, in 1995, said the number of unnecessary antibiotics prescribed annually for viral infections was 20 million. Dr. Besser, in 2003, now refers to tens of millions of unnecessary antibiotics. The number of unnecessary medical and surgical procedures performed annually is 7.5 million. The number of people exposed to unnecessary hospitalization annually is 8.9 million. The total number of iatrogenic deaths shown in the following table is 783,936. It’s evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the United States. The 2001 heart disease annual death rate is 699,697; the annual cancer death rate, 553,251.
