Using medicines is partly good and partly bad. Good because it relieves you from pain. For every life that has been saved by drugs, people loose life because of drug misuse or overdose.
The drugs mentioned below can even take away your life:
Heroin: Heroin was prescribed as a strong painkiller used to treat chronic pain and physical trauma. But it has become one of the most devastating substances in the world, tearing apart communities and destroying families. The side effects of Heroin include a weak immune system, muscular weakness and insomnia.
Cocaine: The side effects of cocaine include liver, kidney damage, also permanent damage to blood vessels, which can lead to heart attacks and ultimately death.
Crystal meth: Crystal meth is short for crystal methamphetamine. This drug creates a false sense of happiness and well-being. Meth decreases your hunger for food; people taking meth can experience extreme weight loss.
Also, drug misuse occurs when you take combination of drugs that alone were not harmful but when taken together can take away your life.
The drugs often are taken with doctor’s prescription including which types of medications the drug should not be taken in accordance with. Still, dangerous drug combinations problems continue to occur. The outcome if mixing two drugs is too much dangerous sometimes. It can result into mild headache, stomach pain to as dangerous as heart disease and even to death.
Painkillers and Antidepressants: Painkillers purpose is to kill the pain, but they can kill you if you combine them with the drug it is not meant to be. Antidepressants increase the risk of bleeding in the stomach. Painkillers called triptans also interfere with the levels of serotonin in the brain.
Painkillers and Anti-anxiety Medications: These two if taken simultaneously the drugs can increase in level of poison. This overload can seriously lower both the breathing and heart rate of an individual, sometimes to deadly levels.
