Atorvastatin is more commonly known by the name Lipitor, I do not have high cholesterol but I know many people who do and take this drug. After researching all about this drug what sticks in my mind the most is this drug really safe for us to use? Many people experience bad cholesterol if possible try to control this through your diet before taking this drug. Why does society depend on drugs now for our health problems, even a better question is why is our society so unhealthy today? In my opinion, we are causing this ourselves through the unhealthy chemicals in our food and lifestyles, when are we going to focus on solving the problem instead of using drugs as a crutch?
Complications In People With Diabetes
At least if we are going to use such dangerous drugs we need to be aware of the danger signs this drug is doing us more harm than good, even though this drug leading to kidney failure is considered rare is this still not enough evidence maybe it is not safe to use? Ever since drugs came on the market which has the ability to damage our organs people are still using them, maybe you are like myself and was not aware how serious the damage from drugs really are? I have organ damage from using drugs prescribed by my physician’s, maybe I trusted my physician’s too much to be taking care of me? Most of us do trust our physician’s with our lives, especially people with chronic health problems.

You have lived as healthy as you possibly could, at least you thought you had? Many people like myself went out of their way to live a healthy lifestyle, resisted the bad habits which will cause you health problems. Avoided the foods we were told would cause us health problems such as foods in high fat or cholesterol, the majority of our diets were the foods we were left to believe were healthy for us. We stayed active with physical activities regularly, we sacrificed many of our favorite snacks to maintain our weight. After all this we still have chronic health problems, does this not suggest the foods we are consuming are possibly the root of our chronic health diseases?

What Is On My Mind Today
If you have no choice than to be on high risk drugs such as these with such dangerous side-effects be sure to know what these drugs can do to avoid serious organ damage. I am on drugs myself which can cause serious damage, so I know at times we have no choice than to take the drug and pray it does not cause us any serious damage. Knowing and watching out for the warning signs is very important, I do feel our physician’s prescribe these drugs way too often before advising us to try less dangerous methods. Herbs are provided for this purpose, the side-effects are much less severe and less of them. I wish I would have known about the power of herbal medicine before taking the drugs which damaged my body, with my articles I am attempting to help others not experience serious damage from high risk drugs.
