    After the death of Heath Ledger & Brittany Murphy should USA medical board review prescription drugs

    Should combinations of prescription drugs be reviewed? Should the quality assurance of drugs in cirucation be reviewed? Why are some drugs in circulation in USA not allowed in Australia and other parts of the world? Are some drugs released without adequate testing?

    Although I am not a medical professional I do work with and have experience with others who take a variety of prescription drugs. The issue isn't whether or not the drugs need to be reviewed but is the patient well informed. Oftentimes people believe that doctors understand the interactions of the various drugs they are prescribing and that is not often true. Patients need to understand what meds they are taking and quite frankly, many of us can't remember or don't think about the various meds we take for various reasons. The biggest reason for lethal dosing is not remembering whether one has taken a prescription drug or not. I'd rather miss a dose than overdose. (An overdose is taking more of any drug than is prescribed. Therefore if you are to take two aspirin and you are told to take one, you have overdosed yourself).
    Americans are obsessed with controlling others(especially if it impacts whites with money) so one sees a lot of restriction on the type of drugs that get approval. God forbid that people monitor their children or take safety precautions about storing their drugs in their homes.. So educate yourself, monitor your loved ones on drugs that are potentially harmful and we'd see less tragedies like Heath and perhaps, Brittany.

    People should have suicide drug kit available for any time they want.
    See my websites on the subject.
    On the other hand, I believe they were both assassinated and it is all disguised like that, just like it has happened to Lady Di and Marilyn Monroe before them.
    I am sure people like those who commit crime against me should be killed before they have their first chance to commit those crimes. See my websites and my suggestions AFTER you read my website 'how to help' and effectively help me somehow. My pages here are at Rush.
