Go Easy On Those Tranquilizers

Posted by on

North Americans seem to be overusing tranquilizers. These drugs can be useful, and valuable, if they are prescribed and used properly and in moderation; but they can also be quite damaging if they are overdone.

Unexpected confirmation of this overuse recently came from a Washington State Northwest Fisheries Science Center (run by the NOAA, the United States National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) study of pollutants in waterways entering Puget Sound. Prozac, Valium, and Zoloft turned up in the water — and in the bodies of young Chinook salmon and staghorn sculpin. An impressive number of other drugs also turned up in the water and in the fish.

No word on whether absorbing all of these tranquilizers made these young fish so tranquil, and so at peace with the world, that they were less inclined to try vigorously to escape from getting eaten by bigger fish. But the drugs must have gotten into their watery environment after having been peed out by people and then flushed.

During 2013, United States Medicare started paying for benzodiazepines such as Valium and Xanax, which are generally available as inexpensive generics. The benzodiazepines bill for that year nonetheless came to $377,000,000. Before 2013, Medicare didn’t cover these tranquilizers, along with many other drugs — based on Congressional reluctance. because their use was quite controversial. The controversy continues apace. Some physicians who have prescribed these drugs in the past are trying to cut down on their use, as new research results come to their attention.
In particular, it’s dangerous for the same patient to be on both benzodiazepine tranquilizers and antipsychotic drugs at the same time. In 2013, there were more benzodiazepine prescriptions written than antipsychotic prescriptions; but it’s not easy to determine how many patients were prescribed both types of drugs to be taken concurrently.

Benzodiazepine tranquilizers are said to affect the brain in much the same way as alcohol. They work well to reduce Anxiety, and are frequently prescribed for patients who are subject to panic attacks. But patients get too accustomed to taking them, and continue to take them for years and years, until they become elderly. And long-term use of these drugs isn’t a good idea; they’re believed to be implicated in some falls by elderly people, and probably also in susceptibility to Alzheimer’s Disease.

Patients who are taking prescription benzodiazepine drugs for their Anxiety should read up on their effects, if they are taking them for a long time — and try to phase out their use before damaging themselves. And now there’s also CLE Holistic Health Mood Effex, which is a herbal health supplement rather than a drug, and is another, safer, line of defense for them against their Anxiety problems. Mood Effex is a blend of seven herbal extracts that have been used since very ancient times by traditional Chinese, Indian Ayurvedic, Persian, and European healers against Anxiety and Depression.
