[Urgent] Dangerous drug TRAP targeting seniors
A hidden TRAP has left millions of older Americans on DANGEROUS drugs they DON’T NEED.
Often, for conditions they DON’T EVEN HAVE!
Even your own DOCTOR… the same guy who gave you those meds in the first place… would tell you to STOP taking these drugs.
But our health system is so flawed — he can’t!
Today, I’ll show you how to side-step this landmine that’s buried deep in our health system.

When a lack of communication turns DEADLY
A startling new study exposes how docs have dropped the ball in a BIG way when it comes to common prescription meds…
They rarely check to see if any should be discontinued.
In other words, they prescribe so many meds… to so many people… that they completely LOSE TRACK!
The problem isn’t with a one-and-one drug like an antibiotic that doesn’t come with refills.
It’s with meds that get automatically refilled.
This common blunder happens:
- Even when you’re completely cured…
- Even when the instructions say it’s time to quit…
- And even when mainstream guidelines warn it’s DANGEROUS to continue!
The new study looked specifically at three common “rolling” prescriptions: antidepressants, proton pump inhibitors for reflux and bisphosphonates for osteoporosis.
Those last two in particular are especially dangerous when taken long-term…
See, PPIs can lead to potentially DEADLY infections and magnesium deficiencies.
And long-term bisphosphonates can actually BREAK the very bones they’re supposed to protect.
Yet people are getting them long-term anyway.
The new study finds that a SHOCKING 46 percent of antidepressants, 45 percent of PPIs and 14 percent of bisphosphonates are “legacy” prescriptions that should’ve ended.
And these three meds are just the tip of the iceberg!
Time to take matters into your own hands
Drugs should be reviewed frequently and ended as soon as possible so you can MINIMIZE your exposure to their nasty side effects.
Since docs clearly aren’t doing this on their own, it’s time to force them to do their job!
Take these three steps:
- Review your meds regularly. If your medical issue has improved or vanished, make sure to discontinue the drugs that were prescribed for it. If you can’t figure out what a specific drug is for, call your pharmacist or doctor and ask.
- Check the labels. One red flag that signals you may be on a drug your doc forgot about is if you see an absurdly high “remaining refills” number, like 99 or 999.
- Make an appointment with your doc to review ALL your meds and eliminate anything you may no longer need.
