Drug Induced Heart Disease
AS: Many allopathic drugs have cardiac side effects, ranging from hypotension and palpitation to various arrhythmias. The effects of these drugs can last a long time. How do you approach such iatrogenic ailments?
MM: In fact, one of the most common problems we are facing in clinic today is iatrogenically (drug or doctor) induced illnesses. The list of common medications that cause heart complaints is long, indeed. You could say medications are the number one cause of heart disease today. Antidepressants, like Celexa have been linked to heart disease. Prednisone causes heart attacks. Synthroid causes tachycardia and arrhythmias. Haldol, Zyprex and Seroquel cause heart disease. Pepcid and Zantac cause heart complaints. Beta blockers and Calcium blockers cause heart attacks. Statin drugs, like Lipitor and Zocor, cause heart disease. Hormone replacement medications, like premarin cause cardiovascular disease. Even vaccines and general anesthesia medications can cause atrial fibrillation and induce heart attacks. …not to mention drugs that have already been discontinued, like the NSAID Vioxx and the antihistamine Seldane – both responsible for the death of tens of thousands of people who suffered heart attacks.
