🧠 5 Popular Drugs That Cause Anxiety, Nervousness & Panic Attacks – by Dr Sam Robbins

Hi, it’s Dr Sam Robbins, Most people, including doctors, don’t realize
how powerful drugs are – including even the over-the-counter ones that once used to be
prescription only. Not only are drugs addictive, but as you may
already know, they’re just loaded with negative side-effects. In fact, between 2011-2017, the FDA received
over 5.5 million reports of adverse problems related to prescription drugs. And I can guarantee there were many more people
that didn’t report anything, even though they had negative effects. However, what’s disturbing is that these
reports also included OVER 1 million deaths!1 That’s far more than what “illegal, street”
drugs cause!!! Now, today’s topic is about 5 popular drugs
known to cause anxiety, nervousness and panic attacks. And I’m doing this topic because I recently
did two separate videos entitled, What Type Of Anxiety Do You Have & How To
Fix It How Do You Know If You Have Anxiety?… A Simple Quiz I’ll give you links to both of these videos
in a minute. The problem with anxiety is that when you
have it, you also tend to beat yourself up. It can also lead to depression. People blame themselves and think there’s
something “wrong” with them. However, the CAUSE could simply be due to
an external source, such as common prescription drugs. Thus, YOU are not the problem — these drugs
may be the REAL cause of your anxiety. So, with that said, let me quickly go over
them and see if you are taking any of the following drugs or have recently within the
past 12 months. Caffeine Caffeine is the most used and abused drug
on the planet. It’s very powerful and one that most people
take for granted and don’t even think of it as a “drug”. Let me put it this way, Coca Cola’s original
formula contained Cocaine, hence where the name “Coca” came from. When cocaine became illegal and they needed
to find an alternative, so they used caffeine as the substitute… thus, it’s very effective
and powerful Obviously, lots of “natural” products
contain caffeine — coffee, energy drinks, cola’s, tea and so forth. However, so do a few medications, especially
those used for headaches and migraines. For example, Excedrin contains aspirin, acetaminophen
(Tylenol) and caffeine. Just make sure you read the label the next
time you take a pain medication, especially for your headache. Corticosteroids
Corticosteroids are a class of steroid hormones produced in the adrenal cortex, by both men
and women. These are not like “anabolic” steroid
hormones, that athletes and bodybuilders take to build muscle. These are, in fact, the opposite … they
are “catabolic”. Anabolic BUILDS and catabolic “TEARS DOWN” You’ve probably heard of the stress hormone,
Cortisol… which is a corticosteroid. Anyway, as bad as these stress hormones are,
they are vital for survival and one of the benefits they have is they help regulate inflammation. Many drugs which treat asthma, allergies,
arthritis, bronchitis and also pain, contain or are prescribed a form of Corticosteroid. Cortisone injections or topical creams… Prednisone and Dexamethasone are all popular
corticosteroid hormones in drug form. In addition to causing weight gain, high blood
sugar, hypertension and muscle loss… they also cause irritability and anxiety. ADHD Drugs
ADHD drugs are one of the most often prescribed drugs in America. They are stimulants, an “upper”, very
similar to an amphetamine. They due cause temporary euphoria in many
people because of the dopamine interaction. However, they also cause nervousness, rapid
heart rate, anxiety and panic attacks. Two popular drugs that you may have heard
of Adderall (Amphetamine/dextroamphetamine) and Ritalin (Methylphenidate,Concerta). However, other drugs which contain different
forms of similar stimulants, all have the same negative, “anxiety causing” side-effects. Asthma Medications
There are actually two primary forms of asthma medications. One that gets treated with a Corticosteroid,
which I discussed earlier. The other is with a beta-agonist stimulant,
such as Ephedrine, Albuterol and Salmeterol. They can cause mood disorders, depression
and anxiety. This includes both pill and inhaler (bronchodilators)
forms Thyroid Medicine
Many people’s thyroid glands tend to be underactive and thus, “Hypothyroid”. This can happen due to aging and lack of iodine
and/or tyrosine. This is especially true for people on lower
calorie diets, ketogenic and low carb diets and even intermittent fasting diets. Women tend to have lower thyroid production
as well and are more susceptible to hypothyroidism. And because of this, your doctor may prescribe
some form of thyroid medication. The most popular is T4 (thyroxine), such as
Synthroid (levothyroxine). There’s also T3 (triiodothyronine) thyroid,
such as Cytomel (liothyronine) Finally, there’s Armour Thyroid, which is
a natural blend of both T4 and T3. These drugs increase your metabolism and also
your heart rate, which can cause nervousness, shakiness and anxiety. You don’t want to stop taking thyroid medication,
but if you are feeling anxiety, you should have a talk with your doctor about adjusting
the dosage. But do so very slowly. Summary
So there you have it, 5 of the most popular drugs which can cause or increase anxiety,
panic attacks, nervousness and worry. You may want to watch this video again, if
you take any of these drugs since I did list a bunch of names. Please also share this video with anyone you
know, who takes any of these drugs. Like I said, most people aren’t aware that
these common and popular drugs, can actually be the cause of their anxiety… or at least,
makinging things much worse Unfortunately, you can’t just get off of
these drugs. There aren’t natural alternatives that work
as well, especially durings times of emergencies — such as asthma medications or Corticosteroids. However, many of these drugs ARE over prescribed
and over-dosed. If you’re taking these or similar drugs
and are having anxiety or similar feelings, speak to your doctor about changing medications
or adjusting the dosage. And remember, these drugs have lingering effects. Just because you haven’t taken them for
a few weeks, doesn’t mean that it’s still not in your system. Your body just needs more time to adjust. So, please be patient. However, if you want to help in naturally
improving your anxiety levels quickly, easily and naturally, I have some important links
below this video, in the description area. Including a proven solution that has helped
thousands of people for almost 20 years, which can help quickly reduce and “erase” feelings
of anxiety, panic and depression. I’ve also posted links to the two other
videos I mentioned at the beginning.
