Blood-Test Early Warning
If you had the time to read the fine print of your prescription drug insert, you would be surprised about the vital importance of having your blood tested to guard against lethal but preventable side effects.
Hurried doctors routinely fall short when it comes to recommending low-cost blood tests that could detect liver, kidney, bone marrow, and other toxicities caused by prescription drug misuse.
When blood tests are not properly done, patients can suffer irreversible tissue damage requiring even more hospitalizations and more costly prescription drugs. The fact that these debilitating and lethal side effects could be sharply reduced by proper blood testing—and that these blood tests are nevertheless routinely neglected—is a national travesty.
For those taking statin drugs, proper blood testing is of particular importance, as excess doses can cause permanent muscle and liver damage.16-24 These side effects can be virtually eliminated if the dose is adjusted to reflect what the drug is actually doing in each individual’s body. Such dose-adjusting data are readily available merely by having the proper blood tests done.
The Life Extension Pharmacy will make its best effort to advise customers of specific blood tests they should ask their doctor about when taking side-effect-prone medications.
Drug-Interaction Early Warning
Consumers often are victimized into using drugs that cost far more than necessary. Some of these drugs also have greater risks of side effects than other medications. That is why we offer a free Drug Cost-Safety-Benefit Review when you transfer your prescriptions to the Life Extension Pharmacy.
In order to optimize your prescription drug program, while saving huge dollars, it is important to have all your prescriptions transferred. That is the only way that Life Extension pharmacists can have full knowledge of all the medications you are taking.
A real-life example of a lethal drug reaction can be seen in a sad case where different doctors of one patient prescribed the three following drugs:
- Coumadin®: prescribed by a cardiologist to prevent abnormal blood clots
- Prednisone: prescribed by a rheumatologist to relieve inflammatory pain
- Lupron®: prescribed by an urologist to treat prostate cancer.
Each of these drugs can deplete bone mineral density, but when all three are used at the same time, rapid osteoporosis can be induced.25-33 In this case, the result was a crippling spinal stress fracture, an agonizing four-month hospital stay, and finally death due to medical errors in the hospital setting.
While the Life Extension Pharmacy cannot guarantee that it will detect every adverse drug interaction, it will review customer records to make the best effort to protect clients against the lethal consequences of drug interactions that are so common today.
Can Your Life Be Trusted to a Pharmacy Chain?
Adverse reactions from prescription drugs cause over 100,000 deaths a year in the United States.34 Despite these startling numbers, the nation’s leading pharmacies have done virtually nothing to protect their customers against the very real dangers posed by the drugs they sell.
A review of annual reports of publicly traded pharmacies reveals the outrageous profits they earn selling tobacco, over-the-counter drugs, prescription drugs, processed foods, liquor, and more. Nothing is mentioned about efforts to protect their customers against the lethal products they sell. But then again, it was never the mission of these pharmacy chains to save human lives.
The harsh reality is that today’s large pharmacies sell anything that is legal, whether it kills their customers or not. They are in business to make money, not to better humankind. The Life Extension Pharmacy’s mission, on the other hand, is to revolutionize the practice of pharmacy in a way that preserves both the client’s health and economic solvency.
Even Greater Future Discounts
From Day 1, the Life Extension Pharmacy will be able to slash the high costs of prescription drugs. But this is only the beginning. We have developed a strategy to reduce the price of prescription drugs to such a low level that cost will no longer be an issue.
The Life Extension Foundation’s track record provides historical proof of our abilities to use Foundation membership buying power to drastically reduce prices. For example, when we first recommended SAMe as an antidepressant in 1996, it cost $45 to obtain 4000 milligrams (20 200-mg tablets). We promised members that this high price was only temporary, and that we would figure out a way to reduce the cost if we could get enough people using it. Within a few years, we slashed the price for this amount of SAMe to only $10.50. In inflation-adjusted terms, we have reduced this quantity of SAMe to only $7.35—a savings of more than 80%!
If you knew how difficult and expensive it is to properly synthesize SAMe, you would understand the biochemical miracle that we accomplished. We are confident that we can provide you with the same type of savings on your prescription drugs. All we need is for Life Extension members to patronize the new Life Extension Pharmacy, and we can generate sufficient volumes to drastically cut the artificially high costs of prescription medications forever.
What this means to you is that you can support our campaign to eradicate high drug prices by calling 1-877-877-9700 today and switching your prescriptions to the Life Extension Pharmacy. You’ll save immediately even if you continue using the same drugs you currently take. You may even be fortunate enough to learn that there are safer and more effective drugs available that cost less than what you’re using now.
Our Revolutionary Strategy
Most people are aware that obsolete FDA policies make it very expensive to get drugs approved and that these costs are passed on to the consumer in the form of high drug prices. Life Extension members have been educated about the exorbitant prices that drug companies charge in relation to the actual cost of the active ingredient. In addition, other government agencies have erected regulations that force American pharmacies to overcharge in order to cover these bureaucratic burdens.
Through your patronage of the Life Extension Pharmacy, you will contribute to a revolutionary initiative to forever obliterate the archaic and corrupt regulatory structure that forces Americans to wait the longest for new lifesaving medications, while paying the highest prices in the world for the dangerous drugs they are too often prescribed.
If you question our ability to overcome our powerful entrenched adversaries, please remember that we launched the campaign that resulted in the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act being passed in 1994. We have taken the FDA to court many times and prevailed. We have beaten back attempts the FDA has made to convince Congress to grant it totalitarian new powers.
The ultimate objective of the Life Extension Pharmacy is to save America from bankruptcy. Economists have predicted that Medicare will be the prime reason why social costs will exceed total federal tax revenues by 2050. Unless something is done to tear down the artificially high prices Americans pay for their health care, our country faces economic insolvency.
