KIiller Combinations

We'll show you some killer mistakes that could sabotage your health.<br>

DID YOU KNOW MIXING CHEESE OR PROCESSED MEATS AND ANTI-DEPRESSANTS COULD SPIKE YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE? 
 THAT LICORICE AND BLOOD PRESSURE MEDS COULD LEAD TO PARALYSIS?
 IF YOU'RE NOT CAREFUL, THE DRUGS MEANT TO SAVE YOU COULD ACTUALLY DO MORE HARM THAN GOOD.  TONIGHT'S HEALTHCAST SHOWS US HOW EVERYTHING FROM THE TIME OF DAY --TO THE TYPE OF FOOD WE EAT COULD DO US HARM.
PILL...AFTER PILL...AFTER PILL.
FROM PRESCRIPTION TO OVER-THE COUNTER, MEDICINAL MISTAKES PUT AT LEAST 1.3 MILLION AMERICANS AT RISK OF PREMATURE DEATH EACH YEAR. THE WRONG COMBINATION OF FOODS AND DRUGS, AT THE WRONG TIME COULD MAKE A LIFE OR DEATH DIFFERENCE. FOR DEBRA JACOBSON, IT WAS BLOOD PRESSURE MEDS. AT HER WORST, SHE HIT A DANGEROUS ---2-10 OVER 190!
 NORMAL IS 120 OVER 80.
"He took my pressure and he sent me to another doctor he said 'you're gonna die' I said... 'not ready!" (laughs)."
HER DOCTOR'S ADVICE? IT ALL CAME DOWN TO HER MEDICINE. "He said you need to take it at night."
WITHIN THREE DAYS SHE SAW A DRASTIC CHANGE. DOCTOR ALAN ACKERMANN SAYS TAKING BLOOD PRESSURE MEDS AT NIGHT CAN CUT YOUR RISK OF HEART ATTACK AND STROKE BY ONE-THIRD!
 "It's called a silent killer for a reason."  
ANOTHER MISTAKE? MIXING CHOLESTEROL LOWERING MEDS-- LIKE STATINS--WITH GRAPEFRUIT. 
THE GRAPEFRUIT BREAKS DOWN SOME STATINS TOO QUICKLY, MAKING THEM TOO TOXIC TO FAST.
TO BE SAFE, TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR ABOUT WHAT YOU'RE TAKING AND TIME YOUR MEDS FOR EIGHT TO 12 HOURS AFTER YOU EAT GRAPEFRUIT. ANOTHER DEADLY COMBO?
ALCOHOL AND ACETAMINOPHENS.
WHILE MOST WON'T SHOOT WHISKEY WITH THEIR TYLENOL, POPPING JUST ONE TO STAVE OFF A MORNING HANGOVER-COULD PUT YOU AT RISK FOR LIVER FAILURE! NOT A DRINKER? NOT OFF THE HOOK! MOST WOMEN KNOW SMOKING WHILE ON BIRTH CONTROL CAN CAUSE BLOOD CLOTS, BUT JUST ONE CIGARETTE COULD CAUSE A BLOCKED ARTERY IN YOUR LUNG. FINALLY, THE SAME PILLS YOU TAKE FOR PAIN COULD BE RAISING YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE! AS MUCH AS 20 POINTS HIGHER!
"Most people aren't aware ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil do contain salt."
WHETHER IT'S WATCHING WHAT YOU DO OR WHEN YOU DO IT, LIKE DEBRA IT COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE.
 YOU MAY WANT TO THINK TWICE BEFORE YOU POP THAT EXTRA TYLENOL! 
 A NEW STUDY FOUND THAT TAKING JUST A LITTLE MORE THAN THE DAILY RECOMMENDED DOSAGE OR THREE-THOUSAND MILLIGRAMS -- CAN ADD UP OVER SEVERAL DAYS-- AND LEAD TO A DANGEROUS OVERDOSE.
