fatal drug combinations
In some cases, a combination of two or more drugs are needed. But the wrong combination can be fatal. Here are some combinations of drugs that could potentially poison the body.
SSRIs + Opioids
(antidepressant + pain reliever)
Some types of antidepressants work by increasing levels of the hormone "happy" or serotonin in the brain. Some painkillers also have a similar effect, so that the result is too happy. Serotonin levels that are too high can cause loss of consciousness, the body temperature rises, heart rate and breathing increase.
Benzodiazepines Opioids +
(pain reliever + anti-anxiety drugs)
Both types of drugs are used to suppress the excessive depression and anxiety. But both kinds of these pills also decrease the heart rate and breathing, sometimes too much.
Statins + Fluconazole
(cholesterol-lowering + anti-fungal drugs)
Those who suffer from yeast infection would have been familiar with the drug with the generic name fluconazole. Meanwhile, statins are the most widely type of medication prescribed by doctors so the combination of these two drugs are very likely to occur. If that happens then the side effects include muscle weakness or kidney damage.
Opioids Benzodiazepines + carisoprodol +
(antinyeri + anticemas + muscle relaxants)
Most doctors understand the drug combination can be deadly. But there is the possibility of patients received these drugs in the adjacent of different doctors or buy your own. It is therefore important for us to mention to your doctor any medication that we consume.
