There are doctors, children of God, many and good. But of the devil ... there are, there are.
ADVICE FROM THE DEVIL TO YOUR MEDICAL CHILD:
1 .- "My son, the most important thing in life is money, look for it and it will open all the doors and you will get everything you want, all the tips that follow have as a final goal that you get money.
2 .- "In your profession as a doctor keep this important concept in mind:" Neither cure, nor kill, but keep sick. "If you cure or kill, the client is finished and the money is finished. Try to have your clients in a disease not mortal and you will have your money insured. To this end tend the following tips. "
3 .- "Create addicts. Recipe medications that generate physical and psychological dependence and so you will have hooked your client and you will ensure your periodic visits. If he tries to become independent from you, he will feel so bad that he will return home. "
4 .- "Side effects are the most important, take care that the drugs you prescribe, while it seems to cure part of the body, get three or four, so you will have more consultations, more money and more time sick to the client "
5 ..- "Always be" angel of light. "Do honor to your name:" Lucifer. "Everything you do or say should appear: truth, virtue, wisdom, altruism, love of neighbor, you are a representative of medicine You are the doctor, the one who knows, demands blind trust and whenever you can discredit any other alternative medicine, your true interests must go unnoticed: you already know that you are the son of the inventor of the "lie".
6 .- "Keep in ignorance, so that your prestige does not take risks keep as much as you can in ignorance to your clients, the one who knows is you, always speak in difficult so that it is practically not understood, like your letter. Avoid prescribing medications that specify in detail the side effects and contraindications because the client can stoke and you will lose it. "
7 .- "Start with the complex, do not ever start with simple things, like listening, getting your tongue out, researching what you eat or similar things, because it can happen that a simple and small thing solves the problem and you will stay without taking advantage of those devices that you have bought and how many dollars they cost you: you have to make them produce ".
i love your videos..They are informative yet entertaining..I wish you would make videos covering drugs used to treat endocrine disorders such as hypo/hyperthyroidism, acromegaly, cushing and addison's disease
The science of benzos is GABA receptor down regulation of the CNS, GI tract, brain, and muscles meaning that natural fight or flight responses are dulled causing people to experience more anxiety, increased panic attacks, more insomnia, increased PTSD symptoms, benzo rage episodes, suicidal ideation, digestive system problems, muscle issues, plus increased eating disorder thoughts and behaviors. The FDA states that physical and psychological dependence on a benzo is not the same as drug addiction. Dependence occurs within a few weeks to a benzodiazapine.
Dr.s do not advise patients of the real side effects. The Ashton Manual explains what benzos really do. Tolerance withdrawals occur when taking a benzo as prescribed but the patient experiences worsening panic attacks or other symptoms previously listed. Sadly patients are prescribed higher doses of a benzo when they are in tolerance withdrawals which only causes more issues with the CNS, GI tract, brain, and muscles.
Facebook has support groups for individuals who want to safely taper off of benzos.
Detox centers treat benzos as opioids. Opioids affect opioid receptors which take weeks to months to taper. Benzos can take months to years to taper. Withdrawal symptoms often happen even after completely off of the benzo for months to years.
Research which receptors each Rx drug affects for yourself.
Benzos should only be used for seizure disorders. Prescribing benzos for anything other than that is medical negligence.
A pharmacist of 25 years states that benzodiazapines can cause neurological damage that can be accidentally diagnosed as ALS, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, and Alzheimer's disease.
Great video on a really important topic. They're really useful drugs medically but the risk of dependency and addiction is not to be underestimate. The difference in mechanism behind benzos and barbiturates has profound implications on the risk of overdose too (hence why barbiturates are barely ever used nowadays). If you're interest in drugs and mental health then check out my channel Mental Health with Dr Elliott. Keep up the good work!
Anti epileptic drugs please... U will really make that topic easy and quick to revise I'm sure... Hope I'm able to see it before my final exams... Thanks for covering this topic as well.... U r awesome!!😍
Benzodiazepines are often used as a second line treatment of epilepsy, but i get what you mean. You have pregabolin, benzos etc. I'm on Clonazepam for anxiety and insomnia, but it is more widely used for epilepicts that do not respond to first line treatment.
Antidepressants are medications that can help relieve symptoms of depression, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, and dysthymia, or mild chronic depression, as well as other conditions.
They aim to correct chemical imbalances of neurotransmitters in the brain that are believed to be responsible for changes in mood and behavior.
Depression Medications (Antidepressants)
These are the most commonly prescribed type of antidepressant.
Serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are used to treat major depression, mood disorders, and possibly but less commonly attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, menopausal symptoms, fibromyalgia, and chronic neuropathic pain.
SNRIs raise levels of serotonin and norepinephrine, two neurotransmitters in the brain that play a key role in stabilizing mood.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed antidepressants. They are effective in treating depression, and they have fewer side effects than the other antidepressants.
SSRIs block the reuptake, or absorption, of serotonin in the brain. This makes it easier for the brain cells to receive and send messages, resulting in better and more stable moods.
They are called "selective" because they mainly seem to affect serotonin, and not the other neurotransmitters.
