Flu Activity is High this Season? What can be done?

There is a lot of talk this year about how bad the flu is, they even report on the news of  the deaths.   Of course, they are also talking about getting a flu shot?   Does that work?

I’ve heard from many people how they got the flu shot and still got the flu, but then the answer has been, it would have been worse if they didn’t get the flu shot.   I’m skeptical. I know one person who rarely gets sick much less gets a flu, but her doctor talked her into getting one this year.  Yes, she got sick.

Whatever you think about this, you should some information to help with the flu if you do get it (or even if you get a cold)

What is Marijuana? Does it help?

Ever since marijuana was legalized, I’ve received a lot of emails regarding its use especially for neuropathy pain?  It is almost as if it isn’t really a drug and it will help their problem rather then medical drug pain killers.

My first response is that a problems with evaluating this drug are the inconsistent dosing and quality-control issues.  

It is a drug and like all drugs has side effects.

Here is something put together by the Foundation for a Drug Free World that I found informative

Opioid Use and Abuse – The Opioid Epidemic

Opioids are drugs that were created to work on the nervous system to relieve pain. They were designed for short term use. Continued use of only a few weeks can lead to physical dependence and withdrawal symptoms when trying to stop.

In the late 1990s, the pharmaceutical companies who created these drugs reassured the medical community that patients would not become addicted to prescription opioid pain relievers, and the medical doctors began to prescribe them at greater rates.

This assurance led to widespread use and misuse of these medications. It has now become clear that these medications could indeed be highly addictive.
