Zithromax and Januvia: Two Commonly-Prescribed Drugs Now Shown to Be Killing Patients

Zithromax

Story at-a-glance -

  • The US FDA is investigating a potential link between a commonly used class of diabetes drugs known as DPP-4 inhibitors and pre-cancerous changes to the pancreas. Additionally, previous studies have also indicated a connection of thyroid, colon, melanoma, and prostate cancer
  • FDA is adding a new heart-risk warning to the label of Zithromax (Z-Pak), a commonly used antibiotic used to treat bronchitis, pneumonia and other serious infections that can trigger lethal heart arrhythmias
  • Research found that Zithromax increases your chances of dying from a cardiovascular event by 250 percent within the first five days of usage, compared to taking amoxicillin. Those who already have heart problems are at even greater risk of dying from the drug, which parallels Vioxx that had killed 60,000 people by the time it was removed from the market in 2004
  • All antibiotics, and especially the more potent ones like the Z-Pak, decimate your gut flora, which in turn leaves you with a sorely weakened immune system until the beneficial bacteria in your gut has time to repopulate. If you must use an antibiotic, make sure to reseed your gut with probiotics, either from fermented foods or a high-quality probiotic supplement
