Exclusive: Painkillers and Statins: How They Work and Side Effects

Sunday, 10 June 2018

There are many drugs that doctors prescribe for the multitude of ailments we suffer from. It is likely that every one of us have taken at least one of these drugs at some point in our lives. These are some common drugs:

1) Analgesic painkiller (anti-inflammatory drugs)
2) Lipid regulator (statin)
3) Anti-diabetic drugs
4) Anti-depression drugs
5) Antibiotics
6) Steroids
7) All types of HBP pills (beta-blockers, ACE-inhibitors, calcium-blockers and diuretics).

These are the drugs we cannot avoid in our lives (unless we know of some alternative solution).

In this article we are going to learn what are the drugs used for, what are the common names, how do they work and what are the side-effects.

1. Analgesics Painkillers

Some common names are panadol (paracetamol), aspirin, ibuprofen, ketoprofen, naproxen.
People take painkillers to subside their pain, like when they have fever, inflammation (from "itis" diseases e.g. gastritis, hepatitis, colitis etc and from breakage of bones), headache or menstrual pain.

These drugs don't really cure your inflammation. What they do is to suppress your feeling of the pain so you don't feel it anymore. The symptoms are subsided so you feel better. But the damage / diseases are still there. Your body still has to heal the inflammation by itself.
