Teach Your Children: Government is Dangerous to Their Lives

July 29th, 2009 No comments

While web-surfing today, I ran across a web site called Kidjacked created by Annette Hall, a former victim of child abuse at the hands of CPS. She and other authors on her site are attempting to educate the public about the atrocities committed by CPS across the United States. We as parents need to protect our children by educating them about the dangers of abusive government, how it can harm them, and what they may have to do to protect themselves from it.

Walmart Generic Prescriptions: $4 for 30 days, $10 for 90 days

July 6th, 2009 No comments

If you’re trying to save money in these sorry economic times, one way to do it may be to consult with your doctor on switching to common generic medications available at low prices via Walmart Pharmacy. Often newer medications don’t work much better than older ones, yet they usually carry higher prices and sometimes unknown long-term side effects. Click on the Walmart $4 Prescription Program for more information.

Print out a copy of the $4 generic prescription medicines list and take it to your doctor visits for your doctor to consult if you need refills or new prescriptions. Doctors are often not particularly conscious of how much medications cost, so this could help you save a lot of money if a low-cost generic can be used rather than a newer name-brand drug. Also ask your doctor about writing prescriptions for 90 days rather than 30 days. This may help you save a little additional money as many prescriptions are available for $10 for 90 days, thus saving you about another $8 per year.

Some of the most widely used generic medications available on this program include Glyburide and Metformin used widely by people with pre-diabetes and diabetes, Lovastatin and Pravastatin which are used for lowering LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, and Amitriptyline and Citalopram and Trazodone which are commonly used as antidepressants.

Health Risks from Tylenol, Acetaminophen, and Paracetamol

March 10th, 2009 3 comments

Tylenol is a common over-the-counter painkiller used worldwide. It’s the name-brand version of generic acetaminophen (US name) or paracetamol (name outside of the US). Both generic names are taken from the full chemical name N-acetyl-para-aminophenol. It’s sometimes referred to as APAP. The drug appears both in tablets by itself as well as combined into many other solid and liquid medicines for colds, flus, fevers, and headaches. These include cough syrups and sleep aids. They are labelled and sold for children and adults.

Acetaminophen is also a common ingredient in many stronger painkillers. It is frequently mixed with stronger opioid painkillers such as codeine and hydrocodone. The hydrocodone and acetaminophen mix is generally called Vicodin.
