The 5 Most Dangerous Pain Prescription Medications

When you think of dangerous drugs, what comes to mind first? Cocaine? Heroin? LSD?

Maybe something else...? How about pain medications?

Advil... Aleve... Bayer... Celebrex... Demerol... Motrin... Naproxen... Oxycontin... Percocet... Tylenol... Ultram... Vicodin...

To name just a few, I could go on, but I am sure you recognise some...

Discover Which Are Safe and Which Can Be Deadly...

Pain medications and the adverse drug reactions to them are the fourth leading cause of death in the US. This is only behind cancer, heart disease, and strokes. But still, millions of people take some form of pain medication every single day.

Prescription or over-the-counter, the vast majority of these people taking these just don't realize the incredible dangers.

  • Here are some scary stats, to show the dangers more clearly -
    100,000 people die each year from prescription medication side effects in the United States alone
    (over 500,000 worldwide)
  • The percentage taking three or more prescription drugs rose from 11.8% to 20.8%, and the percentage taking five or more drugs more than doubled from 4% to 10.1%

I don't know about you, but this is a scary prospect. Did you know that the pharmaceutical companies are the most profitable U.S. businesses, raking in $650 billion a year (more than $300 billion of which comes from the U.S. alone).

The idea that Pharma products that kill, continue to earn billions in profits is very unsettling, but not really surprising because Pharmaceutical companies spend nearly twice as much on marketing as they do on research. In other words they are more concerned they sell their medications than making sure they are safe and effective.

Why should you care?

It means your risk of dying from that pain medicine in your bathroom cabinet could be higher than your chance of dying from diabetes, lung disease, or even an accident...

I have been doing some digging and the results of my own investigations are shocking to say the least... But they could save your life.

#5 Salicylates (Aspirin)

other known names - aspirin, acetylsalicylate

Just as you thought aspirin is safe? Think again!

Higher dosage or prolonged use at the lower dose, even in buffered or coated form, can double your likelihood of perforated ulcers and gastrointestinal bleeding.

Research has shown 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.

#4 Acetaminophen

other known names - Tylenol, acetaminophen

Yearly, over 56,000 people will visit the A&E 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!

#3 Opiate-Based Pain Meds

other known names - Vicodin, oxycodone, Lorcet, Norco, Percocet, Percodan, hydrocodone

If you've ever had surgery, a major accident or any other major injury to your body... you were likely given an opiate-based pain medication to stop the pain.

Unfortunately, this has its consequences!

  • 16,000 people died in the US in one year from drug overdoses. Most were caused by opiates.
  • In 2002 deaths from prescription opiate overdoses had nearly doubled.


other known names - Advil, Aleve, ibuprofen, naproxen

Do you have some form of chronic pain, like arthritis, back pain, neck pain or maybe something else?

If so, chances are you’ve been taking one of the common NSAIDs like ibuprofen or naproxen to help the pain.

And speaking of chances...

  • The odds of dying from taking a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication 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.

#1 Cox-2 Inhibitors

other known names - Celebrex, celecoxib

How would you like to triple your risk of heart attack?

All you have to is just to pick up a prescription of Celebrex.

While the National Cancer Institute was doing research on how this medication potentially can fight cancer, they 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!

I don't know about you, but personally...

...there's NO reason you should be putting yourself through the increased risk these "doctor-recommended" MEDICATIONS give you.

So what if I told you that there really IS a solution, which is an all-natural, fast and a 100% SAFE alternative to pain meds, that have been proven to be just as effective or even MORE effective than the dangerous drugs you've seen above?


Natural, Fast, 100% Safe and Effective Pain Relief!

The good news is that there ARE alternatives to the dangerous prescription medication that actually work...

I know most people dismiss natural remedies because they sometimes they don't work or aren't strong enough, but that's certainly not the case with a little known but the most powerful natural pain reliever on the planet.

And if you wish you can add these 12 safest and most effective pain relievers to your diet, to stop inflammation and pain in it's tracks...

So you can STOP playing prescription medication roulette with your health.
