Deadly Dangers of Medications
Medicines are a leading cause of death in North America, but you rarely hear about the deadly dangers both prescription and over-the-counter medications can cause.

The number of prescription drugs given out has risen over the years.

People seem to want a quick fix for symptoms, rather than figuring out the root problem.

You may accept prescriptions from your doctors without question and pop over-the-counter pills without a second thought about the risks that go along with using these medications.

Not only can drugs have serious side effects, but there could also be mistakes made in production, distribution, dispensing, and taking medications. Sometimes the drugs cause more harm than healing.

James L. Marcum, MD, FACC, discusses the deadly dangers of medications and how you can lower your risk of side effects.
