Recent Reports State That 19 Million Americans Abuse Prescription Drugs; FDA and Novus Medical Detox Agree That Education is Needed


New Port Richey, FL (PRWEB) August 11, 2014

Reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) state that 46 Americans die every day from prescription drug overdose, which adds up to about 17,000 deaths annually. The reports also state that poisonings by drug overdose have tripled over the past 30 years. (1) Novus Medical Detox, one of the only Florida-based detox centers serving high-dosage drug abuse patients, states that the reason behind the high number of fatalities lies in inadequate drug education.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) carries this same belief, and has responded by implementing a new drug education program. The program seeks to educate doctors who prescribe these highly-addictive painkillers, as well as the patients who are taking them. The program’s mission is “to teach doctors about proper opiate prescribing for pain patients to minimize the risks of diversion and addiction.” (4)

The United Nation’s World Drug Report 2014 stated that in 2012, 6.1% (19 million) of Americans abused prescription opioids, including morphine, codeine, OxyContin and Vicodin. This figure categorizes the United States as a country that abuses prescription drugs more than any other country in the world. (2) In an effort to lower the number of people harmed by these drugs, Novus warns Americans to exercise caution when receiving a new prescription from a physician, and to ask questions related to its side effects.

“Intentionally or not, Americans may be underestimating the highly addictive nature of drugs such as opioids,” stated Novus Executive Director Kent Runyon. “It may start as nothing more than filling a prescription for legitimate pain, but overdose may result when a patient seeks to elicit a stronger high from these drugs.”

Novus recommends that the following steps be taken when being prescribed a new medication (3):

●    Be sure that the prescription comes from a trusted physician;

●    Only use the medication as prescribed;

●    Ask the physician about the medicine and its effects;

●    Conduct your own research about the drug’s effects; and

●    Be prepared—ask your doctor what to do if one becomes addicted.

All of these tips are important to heed before a patient starts to take a medication, because addiction may begin with the patient being unaware of a medication’s initial effects. This patient may begin to take pills more liberally than prescribed, and the dangers of addiction do not lie far behind.

Runyon maintains that comprehensive drug education, starting in grade school and continuing throughout adult life to physician visits, can help to significantly reduce the number of Americans addicted to such drugs.

While new preventative measures are being taken, Novus recommends looking out for the following symptoms or behaviors (but not limited to), if someone suspects that a loved one is abusing pain reliever prescription drugs (5):

●    Nausea, drowsiness;

●    Mood swings and anxiety;

●    Slowed reactions, movement and breathing;

●    Jittery or secretive; and/or

●    Neglect of work/school responsibilities.

Runyon advises those who are dependent upon any abusive substance(s) to seek out safe, medically-supervised detox programs, and to use those with integrated medicine that allows the detox process to be as comfortable as possible.

Overdoses on Painkillers Decreased in States With Medical Marijuana

USA (PRWEB) August 29, 2014

According to a CNN article, entitled Medical Marijuana Laws May Reduce Painkiller Overdoses (8/25), a new study found that those states who legalized medical marijuana to help reduce pain have seen a significant decrease in the number of painkiller overdoses seen. By reviewing death certificate information over a ten year period, and comparing various states with and without legalized medical marijuana, researchers were able to find that there was about a 25% decrease in painkiller prescription overdoses in legalized marijuana states versus other states. Researchers also compared their findings against the nation, which has seen almost double the number of opioid analgesics overdoses in the past ten years, a problem that continues to plague the nation. Some within the article argue that these findings might lead to more physicians opting to treat chronic pain through the use of medical marijuana versus prescription pain pills.

Researchers who participated in this study make it very clear that the link between legalized medical marijuana and overdose deaths from pain killers may not be finite. Because some deaths might not be classified properly by death certificate and reporting can vary from state to state there may be some discrepancies in these findings. However, this is an important start to continuous research which can help to improve the quality of life for patients with chronic pain, and may be able to help reduce the number of prescription painkiller overdoses and deaths. Although, it is important to also weigh the pros and cons of marijuana usage in these cases as well.

Whether someone suffering from a alcohol dependency or any other drug, it is highly important to seek the professional counseling and assistance found at a qualified detox center such as Harbor Village. A 24/7 medically supervised facility, Harbor Village allows each client to receive private drug rehab in a luxury, state-of-the art environment.

Can Sleeping Pills Cause Chronic Fatigue?; polyDNA Reviews the Medical Literature


Rochester, NY (PRWEB) June 16, 2014

polyDNA’s most recent survey, taken in June 2014, showed that 45% of respondents wanted to know if their prescription sleeping pills or other tranquilizers could cause chronic fatigue. The answer is yes. Studies show that a common side effect of these drugs is a feeling of physical and mental fatigue. (See the AARP, from June 12, 2012) (1) Drugs used to treat anxiety disorders, agitation muscle spasms, and insomnia are called benzodiazepines, or more commonly, tranquilizers or sleeping pills. “Benzodiazepines can cause sedation and fatigue by dampening activity in key parts of the central nervous system (CNS). People who take a benzodiazepine for more than two or three weeks may develop a tolerance to the drug, and over time may need to take increasing doses to achieve the same effect, only worsening their fatigue. Long-term effects also may include muscle weakness. It’s important to remember that it takes older people up to three times longer than younger people to flush these drugs out of their bodies. The ensuing buildup of the drug in the body puts older people at a much higher risk for experiencing fatigue and for developing physical or psychological dependence. Benzodiazepine withdrawal can also cause fatigue.” (1) These drugs can also weaken the immune system. “Sedation agents have clearly been shown to alter cellular function and other mediators of the immune system.” (See The Annals of Pharmacotherapy, from January 2014) (2) This weakening of the immune system can allow latent viral infections, with viruses such as EBV, CMV, HCV, etc. to increase in number and cause a feeling of physical and mental weakness and fatigue.

polyDNA recommends that people take Gene-Eden-VIR or Novirin against latent viruses that can cause fatigue. The formula of these natural antiviral products was tested by Hanan Polansky and Edan Itzkovitz from the CBCD in two clinical studies that followed FDA guidelines. The studies showed that the Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin formula is effective against EBV and other viruses. The clinical studies were published in the peer reviewed, medical journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy, the first, in a special edition on Advances in Antiviral Drugs. Study authors wrote that, “individuals infected with the (EBV and other viruses)…reported a safe decrease in their symptoms following treatment with Gene-Eden-VIR.” (3) The study authors also wrote that, “We observed a statistically significant decrease in the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms.” (3) In addition, this natural antiviral was recently proven to reduce mental and physical fatigue in a post-marketing clinical study that followed FDA guidelines.

Both products can be ordered online on the Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin websites.

Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin are natural antiviral dietary supplements. Their formula contains five natural ingredients: Selenium, Camellia Sinesis Extract, Quercetin, Cinnamomum Extract, and Licorice Extract. The first ingredient is a trace element, and the other four are plant extracts. Each ingredient and its dose was chosen through a scientific approach. Scientists at polyDNA, the company that invented and patented the formula, scanned thousands of scientific and medical papers published in various medical and scientific journals, and identified the safest and most effective natural ingredients against latent viruses. To date, Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin are the only natural antiviral products on the market with published clinical studies that support their claims.

Which sleeping pills can cause fatigue?

There are many. They include alprazolam (Xanax), clonazepam (Klonopin), diazepam (Valium), lorazepam (Ativan) and temazepam (Restoril). (1) Individuals can check if their sleeping pills cause fatigue by inserting the name of the drug in the search bar located here: http://www.drugs.com.

What evidence shows that sleeping pills and other tranquilizers weaken the immune system?

The drug classes mentioned above, “Analgesic and sedation agents have clearly been shown to alter cellular function and other mediators of the immune system.” (1) Moreover, another study showed that “the immune system and blood vessels can be adversely affected to a greater extent by short-term chronic administration of alprazolam (Xanax). (See Interdisciplinary Toxicology, from September 2011) (4)

How is a weak immune system linked to fatigue?

According to Dr. Hanan Polansky’s theory of Microcompetition, the decrease in the immune system will increase the number of latent viruses in these patients. One typical virus that infects most people is the Epstein Barr Virus (EBV). Research shows that in high concentrations, these viruses cause fatigue. Therefore, polyDNA suggests reducing the numbers of latent viruses in the body to reduce physical and mental fatigue. Individuals can read more about Dr. Polansky’s theory here: http://www.cbcd.net.

Suppressing the immune system can also lead to a reactivation of latent viruses in the body. This further weakening of the immune system can allow an infection with a latent virus, such as with EBV, to create conditions favorable to viral reactivation and even more intense feelings of fatigue. In fact, the virus itself is responsible for feelings of “extreme fatigue.” (See the CDC, last updated January 7, 2014) (5)

polyDNA recommends that individuals who take prescription sleeping pills or other tranquilizers also take Gene-Eden-VIR or Novirin against latent viruses, such as EBV.

Long-term effects also may include muscle weakness. It’s important to remember that it takes older people up to three times longer than younger people to flush these drugs out of their bodies. The ensuing buildup of the drug in the body puts older people at a much higher risk for experiencing fatigue and for developing physical or psychological dependence. Benzodiazepine withdrawal can also cause fatigue.” (1) These drugs can also weaken the immune system. “Sedation agents have clearly been shown to alter cellular function and other mediators of the immune system.” (See The Annals of Pharmacotherapy, from January 2014) (2) This weakening of the immune system can allow latent viral infections, with viruses such as EBV, CMV, HCV, etc. to increase in number and cause a feeling of physical and mental weakness and fatigue.

polyDNA recommends that people take Gene-Eden-VIR or Novirin against latent viruses that can cause fatigue. The formula of these natural antiviral products was tested by Hanan Polansky and Edan Itzkovitz from the CBCD in two clinical studies that followed FDA guidelines. The studies showed that the Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin formula is effective against EBV and other viruses. The clinical studies were published in the peer reviewed, medical journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy, the first, in a special edition on Advances in Antiviral Drugs. Study authors wrote that, “individuals infected with the (EBV and other viruses)…reported a safe decrease in their symptoms following treatment with Gene-Eden-VIR.” (3) The study authors also wrote that, “We observed a statistically significant decrease in the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms.” (3) In addition, this natural antiviral was recently proven to reduce mental and physical fatigue in a post-marketing clinical study that followed FDA guidelines.

Both products can be ordered online on the Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin websites.

Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin are natural antiviral dietary supplements. Their formula contains five natural ingredients: Selenium, Camellia Sinesis Extract, Quercetin, Cinnamomum Extract, and Licorice Extract. The first ingredient is a trace element, and the other four are plant extracts. Each ingredient and its dose was chosen through a scientific approach. Scientists at polyDNA, the company that invented and patented the formula, scanned thousands of scientific and medical papers published in various medical and scientific journals, and identified the safest and most effective natural ingredients against latent viruses. To date, Gene-Eden-VIR and Novirin are the only natural antiviral products on the market with published clinical studies that support their claims.

Which sleeping pills can cause fatigue?

There are many. They include alprazolam (Xanax), clonazepam (Klonopin), diazepam (Valium), lorazepam (Ativan) and temazepam (Restoril). (1) Individuals can check if their sleeping pills cause fatigue by inserting the name of the drug in the search bar located here: http://www.drugs.com.

What evidence shows that sleeping pills and other tranquilizers weaken the immune system?

The drug classes mentioned above, “Analgesic and sedation agents have clearly been shown to alter cellular function and other mediators of the immune system.” (1) Moreover, another study showed that “the immune system and blood vessels can be adversely affected to a greater extent by short-term chronic administration of alprazolam (Xanax). (See Interdisciplinary Toxicology, from September 2011) (4)

How is a weak immune system linked to fatigue?

According to Dr. Hanan Polansky’s theory of Microcompetition, the decrease in the immune system will increase the number of latent viruses in these patients. One typical virus that infects most people is the Epstein Barr Virus (EBV). Research shows that in high concentrations, these viruses cause fatigue. Therefore, polyDNA suggests reducing the numbers of latent viruses in the body to reduce physical and mental fatigue. Individuals can read more about Dr. Polansky’s theory here: http://www.cbcd.net.

Suppressing the immune system can also lead to a reactivation of latent viruses in the body. This further weakening of the immune system can allow an infection with a latent virus, such as with EBV, to create conditions favorable to viral reactivation and even more intense feelings of fatigue. In fact, the virus itself is responsible for feelings of “extreme fatigue.” (See the CDC, last updated January 7, 2014) (5)

polyDNA recommends that individuals who take prescription sleeping pills or other tranquilizers also take Gene-Eden-VIR or Novirin against latent viruses, such as EBV.

Recent Reports State That 19 Million Americans Abuse Prescription Drugs; FDA and Novus Medical Detox Agree That Education is Needed


New Port Richey, FL (PRWEB) August 11, 2014

Reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) state that 46 Americans die every day from prescription drug overdose, which adds up to about 17,000 deaths annually. The reports also state that poisonings by drug overdose have tripled over the past 30 years. (1) Novus Medical Detox, one of the only Florida-based detox centers serving high-dosage drug abuse patients, states that the reason behind the high number of fatalities lies in inadequate drug education.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) carries this same belief, and has responded by implementing a new drug education program. The program seeks to educate doctors who prescribe these highly-addictive painkillers, as well as the patients who are taking them. The program’s mission is “to teach doctors about proper opiate prescribing for pain patients to minimize the risks of diversion and addiction.” (4)

The United Nation’s World Drug Report 2014 stated that in 2012, 6.1% (19 million) of Americans abused prescription opioids, including morphine, codeine, OxyContin and Vicodin. This figure categorizes the United States as a country that abuses prescription drugs more than any other country in the world. (2) In an effort to lower the number of people harmed by these drugs, Novus warns Americans to exercise caution when receiving a new prescription from a physician, and to ask questions related to its side effects.

“Intentionally or not, Americans may be underestimating the highly addictive nature of drugs such as opioids,” stated Novus Executive Director Kent Runyon. “It may start as nothing more than filling a prescription for legitimate pain, but overdose may result when a patient seeks to elicit a stronger high from these drugs.”

Novus recommends that the following steps be taken when being prescribed a new medication (3):

●    Be sure that the prescription comes from a trusted physician;

●    Only use the medication as prescribed;

●    Ask the physician about the medicine and its effects;

●    Conduct your own research about the drug’s effects; and

●    Be prepared—ask your doctor what to do if one becomes addicted.

All of these tips are important to heed before a patient starts to take a medication, because addiction may begin with the patient being unaware of a medication’s initial effects. This patient may begin to take pills more liberally than prescribed, and the dangers of addiction do not lie far behind.

Runyon maintains that comprehensive drug education, starting in grade school and continuing throughout adult life to physician visits, can help to significantly reduce the number of Americans addicted to such drugs.

While new preventative measures are being taken, Novus recommends looking out for the following symptoms or behaviors (but not limited to), if someone suspects that a loved one is abusing pain reliever prescription drugs (5):

●    Nausea, drowsiness;

●    Mood swings and anxiety;

●    Slowed reactions, movement and breathing;

●    Jittery or secretive; and/or

●    Neglect of work/school responsibilities.

Runyon advises those who are dependent upon any abusive substance(s) to seek out safe, medically-supervised detox programs, and to use those with integrated medicine that allows the detox process to be as comfortable as possible.
