This statistic is partly because drug abuse and mental health problems affect the same parts of the brain. If someone begins to feel really bad, they might try to make it better by using drugs. Unfortunately, that does not usually work for very long. Instead the person may become addicted to the drugs, and then feel even worse than before. The drug problem can make the initial mental health problem worse than before the user began trying drugs.

Many people feel that if you get to the root of the problem, it will help our financial health costs, and managed care provides help for this. Some of the negative things I feel about managed care is there is somewhat of a public dissatisfaction. As I said before, everyone wants the system to change and be better, but no one knows how to do it. Another negative thing about it is there are many limitations on what doctors you can see, and the ease of seeing a secondary doctor. There is also the issue of rising prescription drug costs that managed care does not address.
Many people do not know that taking too much of a medicine for headaches or migraines is actually bad for you. The medications to which are being described are not only the prescribed ones by physicians, drugs such as Tylenol and Motrin are dangerous as well. Just because they are not as complex as some of the others does not mean they aren’t just as harmful. A lot of these medications can actually cause headache recurrence, and even worsen the original headache. This headache that reoccurs is called drug rebound headache, which means that the headache returns after each dose of the medicine wears off and then this causes the patient to take another dosage.
As they are the people who are mainly taking care of the patient at the time, hostile attitudes toward a patient are not conducive to his or her well-being. In addition to this, families of the patient may make relapse more likely. In order to find out which families have a greater likelihood of having a patient relapse, the Expressed Emotion (EE) measure was developed. It has been found that patients with high EE families have higher relapse rates. In terms of treatment options, most of the emphasis... ... middle of paper ... ...ect to take medication.
You may not even have known you had the condition until it showed up on a routine examination. That makes it easy for patients to ignore the prescribed treatment regimens. Non-compliance can, of course, have dire consequences. • The cost of the treatment. Your medications and therapies may or may not be covered by insurance, and the more out-of-pocket cost to the patient, the less you are likely to adhere to buying the drugs or making treatment appointments.
Drugs are misleading; they cause you to think that your life is becoming better, when it is actually becoming worse. “Fooling” is what drugs do best; they fool the brain receptors by sending abnormal messages to it. After all, what good really comes from drugs? When someone starts taking it, it is very hard for them to stop, if not impossible. Nevertheless, if they actually do stop there are many side effects to this, “Persistent vulnerability to relapse long after drug taking has ceased” (Koob & Le Moal, 2001, p. 97-129).
In fact, many patients that seek alternative or complementary treatments do so because traditional medicine could not give them the results they want. As people face health problems, the last thing they need is to take drugs that will treat that problem while also bringing on a host of undesirable side effects. Of course, it does not mean that alternative and complementary approaches could not also have risks and side effects as this can certainly happen, especially when a person takes various herbs or supplements without expert guidance. If we had more widespread and affordable access to integrative practitioners, we could reduce some of the dependence on prescription drugs while avoiding many of the dangerous side effects.
These medications may alleviate the symptoms of dementia, but do not completely cure the disease. As well as this, these drugs all have some sort of side-effect to the taker, which can lead to worsening their condition in another area. Without a medical breakthrough in the foreseeable future, dementia will continue to effect the lives of more members in the community.
Also, doctor is require to be response for prescribe the right and need medication or drug to patient that before prescribed something, doctor do a diagnosis and determinate the drug. Because of this that prescription drug receives less critize about being dangerous, abused and addiction.
