[Alert] Docs Caught LYING About Popular Meds!
Ask for my take on mainstream meds… especially prescription antibiotics… and boy, I will give you an EARFUL!
They’re infamous for triggering the rise of deadly drug-resistant superbugs… and studies have shown that they can lead to painful kidney stones… devastating organ failure… torn tendons… and MORE!
There’s even a name for how some of the most popular ones, fluoroquinolones like Cipro and Levaquin, wreck your body (aka getting “floxxed.”)
And thankfully, its seems like the mainstream may FINALLY be starting to catch on… implementing programs to track and limit the use of antibiotics within different institutions.
Or at least… that’s what they want you to think.
Brand-new research indicates otherwise… revealing that despite OVERWHELMING evidence that these meds are plain bad news… and alleged “attempts” to reign in their rampant over-prescription…
Docs continue to prescribe antibiotics at an astonishing rate!
And the worst part?
They know they’re in the wrong… so they’re doing it UNDER THE TABLE.
I’ll explain what they’re doing and how they’re getting away with it in just a second…
(Hint: It’s despicable.)
But first, you’ve got to see the numbers on this one.
In the study, published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases, researchers analyzed the medical records of close to 12,000 patients from 48 Michigan hospitals over about two years.
They focused on patients undergoing treatment for pneumonia or a urinary tract infection (UTI), two of the conditions most often treated with antibiotics, and paid special attention to the meds and methods used by hospitals with and without measures against over-prescription.
And frankly, I can’t get over the hypocrisy…
Because researchers observed that across all hospitals… including those reportedly attempting to CUT BACK on antibiotic use… one-third of all patients studied were SENT HOME with a prescription!
But it gets worse.
Compared to hospitals without fluoroquinolone-specific stewardship, those with the programs had TWICE AS MANY new starts on the drug after discharge.
Maybe patients weren’t given the drugs IN the hospital (where there’s the most scrutiny), but they sure got them AFTER being discharged. Plus, in the 14 hospitals with those measures in place, 78 percent of all antibiotics prescribed were prescribed upon discharge…
That means that only 22 percent of antibiotic prescriptions were tracked as occurring while under hospital care…
And I bet that sure looks good on paper.
But ultimately, it’s not the truth.
No matter where or when patients are being given these drugs, they’re still getting them – and presumably taking them – which does NOTHING to limit side effects or the growth of superbugs.
That’s why it’s never been more important that you SPEAK UP if your doc ever suggests a course of antibiotics. Depending on your condition, it might not be necessary…
(According to the Centers for Disease Control, at least 30 PERCENT of all antibiotics prescribed in the U.S. aren’t.)
So tell him no, tell him why, and ask for an alternative.
