Medicines found to alter human behavior
According to dailymail.co.uk research has shown that some medicines may make you aggressive, suicidal, or even homicidal.
According to the article commonly prescribed medicines for high cholesterol, asthma, acne, and even birth control pills can cause strange side effects. They can cause you to behave in some very strange ways.
The article says that research had shown that taking statins to lower cholesterol could cause some women and men to become violent. Other side effects for statins that were mentioned were headaches, nausea, and muscle pain and joints.
The reason they said was that cholesterol enables brain cells to communicate.
So be aware every change you make to the body chemically will sometimes have unintended consequences to go along with the intended outcome.
The prescription drug for asthma called Singulair or montelukast sodium has been linked to four suicides and has been reported to be linked to agitation, anxiety, hallucinations, depression, insomnia, irritability, and suicide.
According to the article the anti-smoking drug Champix has been the subject of more than 4,000 reports to the FDA citing depression and attempted suicide.
The acne drug isotretinoin (brand name Roaccutane) was mentioned as being associated with depression and suicidal behavior.
Of course it has been known that many medicines used to treat depression itself, tend to come with warnings concerning suicidal thoughts.
So be careful about what you take, and if you feel any unusual symptoms from your medications, tell your doctor immediately.
Also, my own personal opinion here, we should all strive to lead healthy lifestyles so that taking medications becomes less necessary. Avoid the types of foods and sedentary lifestyles that tend to lead to health issues that require medications for in the first place, if possible.
