More than 15 percent of older Americans took potentially life-threatening combinations of prescription medications, over-the-counter drugs and dietary supplements in 2011, the study showed. That was almost a twofold increase from 2005, when 8.4 percent of seniors did so.

MONDAY, March 21, 2016 (HealthDay News) More seniors than ever are taking supplements alongside their medications, a practice that puts them at risk for dangerous drug interactions, researchers report. More than 15 percent of older Americans took potentially life-threatening combinations of prescription medications, over-the-counter drugs and dietary supplements in. More than 15 percent of older Americans took potentially life-threatening combinations of prescription medications, over-the-counter drugs and dietary supplements in 2011, the study showed. That. A new study has found that one in six seniors take a dangerous combination of medications and supplements that increases their risk of drug interactions.

In 2011, 15 percent of seniors were taking. Overall, 1 in 6 adults over age 65 are likely to have a harmful reaction to one or more of the meds they’re popping, according to the American Geriatric Society. (And this age group is popping quite a few, it seems.

That was almost a twofold increase from 2005, when 8.4 percent of seniors. A new study has found that people 55 and older who took strong anticholinergic medications daily for three years or more had a 50% increased risk of dementia.

You need to be wary of over-the-counter or prescription drugs that can interact poorly with supplements, says Robert Glatter, MD, an assistant professor of emergency medicine at Northwell Health in New York City. For example, St. John’s wort may cause fever, confusion, and anxiety if it’s taken with other antidepressants.

  • Psychiatry today is very impatient. It wants instant results the profession is subject to performance scrutiny so they have to be able to demonstrate effective results through changes in patient behaviour. This has happened as a result of intense pressure from the pharmaceutical lobbies, who take advantage of lay ignorance and lay fear of actual analysis.
    So large numbers of these young people never get better, they just learn to manage their hang-ups better. Over the years they move from drug to drug and unless they are kids of some initiative they never do anything to get to the root cause of why threat are behaving the way they are.
    It’s also important to remember that in many cases there is only the patient’s word that they are experiencing these “psychotic” or schizophrenic events, so what you might actually be needing to treat is something quite different and a lot more serious

  • I have bipolar and I just want to say,you people are incredibly brave.Been hospitalized with you guys,and I seen what you go through.

  • I have been through into some swing moods, kind of depression ( i used to be depressed for ten years or so), an “stuckness” of the mind ( the brain feels like a rock!!!, heavy and unconfortable).
    I though i was going mad. I just feel crazy. Drugs and alcohol was my best friends. They still are. I am afraid of medication. Is it a part of the “mental disease” behave like that?
    I think i fell in love with my “kit of mental states”.
    Love your videos.
    God blessed YOU.

  • Accurate video. One antipsychotic gave me an insatiable hunger that was never sated & contributed to nearly 80 lbs in weight gain in a short span. Almost all antipsychotics I have checked have a low percent of probability of sexual dysfunction, but they most assuredly can happen. The “nothing” feeling & “doom” feeling are common. Agitation, too. Thank you for making these videos. It’s comforting to know others go through schizophrenia too & that there are good-hearted people like yourself destigmatizing it through honest testimonials. Hospitalizations for mental health are nothing to be ashamed of. I have averaged at least one per year for a decade. I hope everyone who needs help finds the courage to seek help & is as lucky as I have been with finding a good mental healthcare team. Not all mental healthcare workers are created equal. I promise, from personal experience, that good mental healthcare workers do exist. Being willing to ask for help when it’s needed is a sign of strength. ����

  • Isn’t that amazing, bad side effects between natural drugs and prescription drugs but no problems when elderly are prescribed 10-12 different drugs. They basically killed my mom with long term proton pump inhibitors/ killed her kidneys. Latest blood thinners changed from old adverse side effects, more bucks for newest prescriptions. The list goes on.

  • Your talks here are an inspiration for me in dealing with a family situation. I can’t thank you enough for offering your very difficult experiences up as a resource. I am headed right now to join your Patreon Team. Bless you.

  • For those tempted to simply stop taking their medication DO NOT DO IT. I was on Effexor (anti depressant) and my dad told me that I seemed better and took me off of it cold turkey…and I was left alone. That singular day was harder than the days that led me time to medication to begin with. I was a complete mess and I dissociated everything but that one day that I was VERY suicidal. So scary.

  • Then don’t take prescription drugs…and get healthy. Prescription drugs ruin your liver. Prescription drugs are like rat food…you are a rat on a wheel.

  • I can’t tell if this channel is real or a Big Pharma plant. If this is real, please stop poisoning yourself! “Antipsychotics” (neuroleptics) cause dementia, diabetes, and early death.

  • I’m cured from my long long term genital herpes. Congratulations to me���� I’m so freaking excited�������� I feel so much joy I me right now. Wow I’ve been cured from herpes. Can’t stop thanking God������ ([email protected])

  • Dude i have been watching ur stuff sparingly, but the last couple days before my test i decided to watch only ur stuff, and i dont regret it. Thanks for all you do.
    It will be cool if u make videos which will help us be better new nurses to. Don’t know if u already have that.
    God bless you and what you do sir.

  • So my mother had paranoia schizophrenia and she hated how her meds made her feel. I didn’t understand that or ever see her having issues except the last time I was living with her. She had a bad night that night…I really didn’t help as a child with communication disorder.

    So thank you for your point of view

  • You need to watch out heart issues, long term use atypical meds can cause problems, have regular ecg’s and discuss with consultants when anything usual shows up

  • Many don’t know that supplementation can replace medication. Consult a Functional Medicine doctors also to know more about your choices

  • chemical staitjacket.IF YOU TRY STAYING AWAKE ON SEROQUEL YOU WILL HALLUCINATE… cant get off it, and you will NEVER be ABLE TO SLEEP AGAIN without it, you will get massively fat. your psychiatrist will ask you if you would like to try this or that medcation, you become a zombie,

  • They tried three or four different meds but ended up on thorazine about four years ago after 3rd hospitalization, and it’s been awesome for me, have not and will not miss a dose. No one med works for all so as hard as it is you have to keep trying until you find something that helps.

  • I just found out I passed my nclex wensday. My friend purchased simple nursing for me to study and my test shut off at 60 questions �� Thank you I love your videos the most!

  • Just get on ssdi so u can get the insurance. Medicare and Medicaid. Then look for a easy part time job. tell your boss u have your own medical insurance so he will not have to provide you with his.

  • My experience on one antipsychotic med was that it completely took away my periods. It was concerning, but the med really helped stabilize me. I decided finally to get off of it, hoping that my periods would come back. Thankfully, after 3 months, they came back and I’ve been having my period monthly ever since then!

  • I am experiencing mania,physchosis, and in and out of DID,I don’t want to live. I am alone,no family,friends, single no desire to be around the world. I also have agoraphobia. I have been burning and cutting. I wish someone would reach out. I don’t want to be here anymore…[email protected] please ��

  • God bless you Lauren. I too have similar mental illness,I have an injection for it and it works quite well. I sleep a lot unfortunately bad habit. Eating healthy helps a lot gives a bit more energy. I think ur wonderful for talking to the public on schizophrenia. People have judged me for being fairly open about mental illness but I don’t care as I know I am a decent person. The worst thing about me is that I can yell when standing up for myself don’t misunderstand me I usually control myself. My mind is very quiet which is lovely, lm learning more and studying nutrition. I’ve been ill 23yrs and have had 2 hospitalizations.

  • For more than 10 years already, sleep problems has been part of my life. Right after making use of this sleep for a week, I was able to accomplish 8 hours of sleep every night. I`m sleeping so well that I have not even done the plan. My insomnia has finally vanished because of this program.. I discovered Google and found this guidebook on a website.. It calls Zoey Sυnodoz
    take care

  • I’m on Zyprexa for bipolar disorder without it my GP said I could suffer psychosis which I have many times including hallucinations

  • I was on such meds for at least 12 years, though I stopped years ago. I had drug induced psychosis that lasted a while I guess. Not really sure. For me, spirituality really helped with depression (which I really began to have when I stopped using marijuana and started taking medication). Basically the AA program. I wasnt aware depression was part of schizophrenia. I think a lot of people are not aware that depression can be linked to spirituality, as this is not what a doctor will ever tell one.

  • Hi Lauren, Great content, btw my name is also lauren. My father had schizophrenia, and I watched as his life deteriorate without medications. He would have an episode every 7 years without medicines. He was brilliant. We tried to encourage him to take his meds so he could live a healthier normal life, but his paranoia with drs. Was strong, and he refused. He was also a navy veteran and when he was in the navy, that’s when he had his first episode. They gave him an honorable discharge. He lived most of his life, but as he grew older without the meds, it caused him to get dementia sooner, than expected. He went from living in his apartment, to moving into a storage unit. He said the metal above on the roof, would keep him calm he said, and he would hear aliens talk to him, and recorded it in writing. He started doing great drawings on different alien, galaxies, and have the definition on each drawing. From watching my father, for so many years, it is a requirement to take medications. Honestly, none deserves to suffer that bad. I’m glad they have medications out there for this. Thank you for talking about it.

  • I got a question. Does medication for schizophrenia cause weight gain? I was taking trazodone for depression, for sleep, and for anxiety. I stopped taking it last month cause it caused lots of weight gain…

  • Thank you for being thoughtful and careful with you presentation. You are really helping out by sharing you experiences and removing the fear that some may feel.

  • I started experiencing INTENSE intrusive thoughts after some time with taking geodon. It’s been life changing for me as I have them around the clock, and also musical hallucinations that came on later. I recently tried to taper off on 20mg of geodon 8 years later and my symptoms were so severe I don’t know that I can. I didn’t feel safe. Not sure why new symptoms have come on after a few years of taking an anti-psychotic. I have read ocd can be induced from antipsychotics. Not sure

  • I quit my medication all together. Best treatment is to balance yourself out and face these hallucinations down. You might still be scared, but you just need to reassure you that those visions can’t hurt you, paranoia is something you need to beat on your own. You need to talk to yourself, and drown out the voices that are negative and ignore them

  • Though i haven’t met Dr ODIN but i have being hearing and seeing his wonderful deeds on people’s life.. This made me contacted him because i was also diagnosed of herpes virus, When i contacted Him, without wasting time, he started his Miraculous work in my Life, I am happy and Glad to say that i am now cured after using his herbal Medicine..

  • If this country we don’t get educated about it, meanwhile in Europe natural cures are prescribed all the time. Germany has been prescribing Lipoic Acid for over 40 years for neuropathy, diabetic and otherwise. Dr. Berkson saved couples who ate amanita mushrooms back in the day, the hospital told him to simply monitor their vitals until they died by morning, fortunately for them, he WAS educated in the use of lipoic acid for liver damage and hooked them up to an iv overnight and when they recovered he was in the doghouse.

    He did this on two separate occasions. Imagine how much money would be saved by the healthcare system if lipoic acid were used for liver failure due to cause xyz. Right now, the holy grail of big pharma is the endocannabinoid system, the same system that medical marijuana modulates/corrects. They are trying desperately to create a drug that will either enhance the production of anandamide and 2AG in the body, or stifle the activity of FAAH, the enzyme that breaks them down.

    So far the side effects have been off the charts so cannabis it is. Cannabidiol, the non-psychoactive component of hemp is available in 50 states. I people who have completely addressed their seizures with it. The science is at for the uninformed medical person. On PubMed you search for cannabidiol and xyz condition to see the research.

    For anyone truly wanting to know why the stories of true healing at are not placebo effect, and not paid advertisements, listen to the following medical professionals lecture on the endocannabinoid system, the number one target of big pharma as it stands today. Fortunately the public has CBD, which is presently being used in two clinical trials in Israel, one for asthma and one for autism.

  • Get a new doctor. Mainstream medicine is being paid by big Pharma not to talk about alternative lifestyle or alternatives to pills their taking. This is changing by the research and support of Functional Medicine doctors like Dr. Hyman, the Paleo Cardiologist. Find a doctor who wants to educate herself on this such as Functional Medicine! These reports have some truth to them, but I believe Big Pharmaceutical companies who make literally billions every year to keep us sick, are getting worried about this movement to make us well again.

  • Thank you for making this video.
    About mouth dryness, you may know this already, but there are toothpastes and mouth moisturizers on the toothpaste aisle, also there is a prescription medication for dry mouth, but good luck getting a doctor to prescribe it for you!

  • Without antipsychotics I seriously think I would have been dead by now. They really help with my symptoms. Yes I do get the feelings of there being a barrier sometimes, and the anxiety but I take other medications to help combat those and I seriously have never felt better in my life. I still have my daily struggles but they are definitely manageable. Better than unmanageable.

  • I had a pychosis but I have not got schizoaffective disorder but I feel so unclear to think does this happen to anyone else? I believe in Jesus tho and I trust in him

  • Idk if it’s so pos to but my frend and I bouth have to take antipsychotics like you sayd it a win if you do and win if you don’t but we bouth get relly drowsy so we go to bed and when we get up we are fine idk for every one but I would suggest for them to be token at bed time

  • I would go out with you. You seem really nice. I’ve been around ppl with all sorts of diagnoses at the VA so I can understand a lot. I’m bipolar with PTSD but my bipolar isn’t bad. I’ve been in many groups there to help understand all the avenues of illnesses and medications

  • Your an angel, ive needed an advocate with the same illness to explain it for me,im welling up in tears watching your channel, thankyou soooo much!

  • Oxytocin is a peptide hormone and neuropeptide. It is normally produced in the Hypothalamus and released by the posterior pituitary. It plays a role in social bonding, sexual reproduction, childbirth, and the period after childbirth. 

    Dopamine is a hormone and a neurotransmitter that plays several important roles in the brain and body. It is an organic chemical of the catecholamine and phenethylamine families. Dopamine constitutes about 80% of the catcholamine content in the brain. It is an amine synthesized by removing a carboxyl group from a molecule of its precursor chemical L-DOPA, which is synthesized in the brain and kidneys. Dopamine is also synthesized in plants and most animals. In the brain, dopamine functions as a neurotransmitter—a chemical released by neurons to send signals to other nerve cells. The brain includes several distinct dopamine pathways, one of which plays a major role in the motivational component of reward-motivated behavior. The anticipation of most types of rewards increases the level of dopamine in the brain, and many addictive drugs increase dopamine release or block its reuptake into neurons following release. Other brain dopamine pathways are involved in motor control and in controlling the release of various hormones. These pathways and cell groups form a dopamine system which is neuromodulatory.

    a long-term mental disorder of a type involving a breakdown in the relation between thought, emotion, and behavior, leading to faulty perception, inappropriate actions and feelings, withdrawal from reality and personal relationships into fantasy and delusion, and a sense of mental fragmentation.

    Schizophrenia. Schizophrenia, also known as Schizophrenic Disorder, is a psychological disorder, thought to be caused by imbalances in brain chemistry, which involves delusions and faulty perceptions of the world. People suffering from schizophrenia often hear voices in their head and have delusions of grandeur.

    Why do you think you hear negative voices in your thoughts?
    Can you counter them?
    Or you have no conscience of it when happing?
    Just wondering
    I had 2 or 3 different seizure types on top of migraines
    I would be in sub conscience mode and talk to myself often
    I had no awareness of external or internal things happing when having a seizures
    It was from a head injury so I wasn’t born with it

    Stress or worry will always make things worse
    Be mindful
    try to do things that help with stress
    You have to try different things
    Try meditation or exercise

    I think nanotech and cybernetics may be a better way one day to regulate the chemistry and Biological functions
    But the voices you hear
    I’m not sure why or what part of the brain that happens at
    can you play a flute?
    something that makes you feel more relaxed and gives you some pleasure besides stress?
    try different things to see if you find some peace and pleasure
    Maybe you just need a hug once and a while

    For me weed worked as my meds
    I enjoyed gaming but had tp be careful
    weed and gaming I think allowed me to rewire my neurological pathways
    although some strobes or pattern’s will still give me seizures
    Most will not anymore
    strobe and tunneling effects with rapid oscillating patterns in motion will probably give me seizures
    I just close my eyes lol
    But they will give people who don’t have seizures, seizures
    Weed does work for seizures
    But people hate that idea
    But it’s facts
    At least in my case

  • Medication screwed me up for years. In so many ways, including some of what you pointed out. I believe things I see aren’t really hallucinations anyway. I think some people have a sixth sense, much like a dog who starts to growl at seemingly nothing. One night among many I woke up to a shadow of a person in my room. I felt paralized all I could do was move my eyes but I stated at this thing. I still feel it’s presence. I don’t think we’re alone. I think doctor psychiatrists and even government know this. They give you meds so that it reduces your ability to think at your fullest. Much like when governments cover up UFO sightings, and they take down videos from YouTube, Why? Because they know stuff. They want to control information. If a shadow person can walk into my house and only my dog notices it, and it stares at you in your room. What’s stopping it from seeing the president. When does it become real. If tonight every man women and child sees a shadow at the exact same time, are we all crazy. People believe in God with very little evidence. They feel that his presence is felt and with you, but if that’s true then the devil could be right next to you too. And there’s plenty of evil spiritually related and not related that could exist. If what I saw at that night was truly a hallucination, then all these people that claim to have seen God should be hospitalized. Just because you see something doesn’t mean it’s not real. It might be something evil it could be something haunting you, maybe your brother or sister doesn’t see it, but if you see a dog run through your yard but your family didn’t see it, did it not exist? These things may be showing themselves to you, who knows how long these things or people or spirits or God or devil or shadow people have been here, nobody alive has seen what happens when you’re dead, what your seeing may be something that had worked years into trying to be seen from the world beyond, perhaps it’s trapped, perhaps it’s evil and that’s why it haunts you, perhaps it envoys your life and you ability to live, maybe that’s why you are being followed by it and why it’s showing itself only to you, if it acts like your friend maybe it’s tricking you. Most of the time people feel distressed and afraid and tormented by these things, but if you stare into the face of death, if you show it no fear these things will find someone else to torment, because it’s no longer fun for them. It’s no longer thriving on your misery and disuray. There’s a saying from a movie I watched years ago( if a man loves his work, truly loves it, sickness and death will get tired of chasing him. It’s a basic principle, if you stand up to a bully even if you can’t beat that bully, you make it harder for him, and the harder you push that bully, the sooner he will find a easier target. I swear the devil, or spirits or whatever was in my head threw everything it had at me, but I faced it, I evaluated what it was saying what I was seeing, and I said no. I said no, that’s not me, and no, I will no longer be afraid of you. I still see things, and my dreams are usually weird or nightmares. But when I wake no matter what I see or feel, it’s not going to hurt me, and if it does I’ll hurt it back. The fact that it’s not physically attacked me before, the fact that these spirits are ethernal and you can just walk through them, it shows there weakness, and it shows your strength. The shadow person that night… I stood up to it I looked in the face and I said come on. I faced it, and my head flashed red, like a pulse of mental brain waves being sent into my head, it’s mental attack, but I defeated it, and when I got up and broke free of his paralysis stasis and turned on the lights he disappeared, that was either 4 or 5 or maybe even 6 years that he hasn’t shown up. Maybe he will again. But if you show fear, you’ve already lost, that’s not to say you show any fear you’ve already lost. Many things scare us, if he shows up again I will be afraid. But I will find courage again, medications might help some, but not me, in my opinion it causes more problems then it’s worth. It cost me a relationship. It cost me physical health problems. It also cost me mental slowness, dulled me down quite a bit. And I think that’s generally the point of meds, and doctors, people just want you to stay dulled down, they want you to go to your factory job and perform basic stuff, they don’t want a world of dreamers and deep thinkers. They want politicians rich and the average Joe barely surviving. They want to keep the world from you, but the world is yours, take it. Be free. You don’t owe the world nothing, the world owes you everything. Don’t be sheep.

  • Constipation, restless legs, id get a feeling like someone was draging their nails up and down my legs, my bones would feel like they wanted to jump out of my body, dry BODY, everything from skin-hair-eyes-intimate parts if your a woman, everything got dry for me, sever drowsiness, I also had an adverse reaction to one medication that made it so i couldn’t control my muscles from the shoulders up, it was a very scary experience, fairly common with that med apparently because the emergency department knew what was wrong as soon as they saw my med list, it wasn’t like my muscles just went slack and I couldn’t hold my head up, all my muscles from shoulders up were doing whatever they wanted, my mom said it looked like I was possesed

  • Hi, generally, are psychoanalytic medications similar to antidepressant medications? Do they work similarly? your description about side effects of psychoanalytic medications are very similar to that of the antidepressant medications(which I am currently on).

  • Still feeling the doom on and off after taking the medicine, I took the injection for one month and quit because I was going nuts and I still am sometimes, it can take months for these side effects to go away I heard. I don’t have like a movement disorder but I have a sense of doom and it scares me

  • I take Seroquel and I also take lamtrogine for my epilepsy which is also a bipolar medication. I intentionally gained weight but it went away really quickly. So that works well. But I agree negative symptoms are difficult to find something that treats successfully. Personally though I do believe the positive symptoms are what really needs medication.

  • I really appreciate the honest account of your experience, but when it comes down to it you need to just get a way from the psychiatrists, you are unwittingly helping to push their drugs which are just damaging. I appreciate where you are coming from and feel for you but you are ultimately doing a bad thing because you are normalising these life destroying drugs. Please research further Dr peter breggin.

  • Unfortunately, in the UK, some stupid NHS psychiatric doctors prescribe antipsychotic medication to patients who don’t really need them. It’s shocking.

  • I mention the supplements every time my doctors and I discuss my prescription medication. They don’t seem to care, or they are not educated about supplements. Shouldn’t it be their responsibility to know which supplements interfere with what they prescribe? They just aren’t interested in even knowing about the supplements I take. And actually, I’ve done my own research, and don’t take anything that interferes with my prescriptions.

  • This was amazing, thank you so much for making this video. I am a medical student and the psychiatrist heading up our Mental Health block pointed us towards your video. Thank you again!

  • You are so stunningly gorgeous and your videos help me so much! I have 2 really close friends with schizophrenia and your videos have helped me so much with dealing with my friends symptoms. Thank you for making these videos and stay strong because you are an amazing person and a prime example of how to handle this overwhelming disorder.

  • Thank you.
    I have schizophrenia and borderline personality disorder. But BPD symptoms appear to mirror the negative effects of schizophrenia. What are your thoughts. Do the two go hand in hand as far as schizophrenia goes. Or does BPD add extra negative effects

  • Dry mouth. Jim Carry movie. He had no lips, all teeth dry mouth. State trooper, wife left, three possible non-biological male children.
    Thanks for honest reporting.

  • What I was on for bipolar? Made me feel like an insane clown was suffocating me to sleep ever night. It did shut me down and I definitely needed to be shut down but I had terrible nightmares that extended into the next day. Honestly it was like being on benadryl x100. That on top of having appointed psychiatrists came and went and prescribed on a rotating basis. I’m greatful that there were professionals who were willing to help but it felt like I was on a game show where I had to pitch my disorder in order to get treatment

  • I’ve been diagnosed with schizophrenia for a long time and at one point my meds risperidone worked really well but lately I have been having a hard time. I take 1.5mg daily so Idk if it needs to be higher dose or just doesnt work.

  • One I started experiencing more n more is what my dad n I call brain zaps, where when I try to think sometimes I can feel the neurons in my brain fire and it hurts. I’m drug free with bpd now with support from my docs… but I’m terrified of going back on them because of that…

  • She has been diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder, but has created a channel and is speaking about schizophrenia. I’m surprised she has the audacity to do this. She definitely shouldn’t be speaking about schizophrenia to anyone. It is much different!!

  • I was put on antipsychotics for sensory issues a while back. It really takes the corners off. When I first took them, everything felt foreign, too soft. Music wasn’t as punchy anymore, I experienced it differently. I’ve gotten used to them at this point, but I remember it being really strange at the start. It doesn’t entirely cancel out my sensory issues either. I still can’t stand touching things of certain textures or having my hair on my ears.
