Drug Muggers How to Keep Your Medicine from Stealing the Life Out of You by Suzy Cohen, RPh (Registered Pharmacist)
We can’t say enough about this book and have tried to limit what we say here. Here is a brief overview.
Suzy Cohen, R. Ph., is a licensed pharmacist with nearly 20 years of clinical experience. Suzy Cohen is a member of the Institute of Functional Medicine, The Association of Natural Medicine Pharmacists and The American Pharmacists Association.
What is this book about:
Since millions of people worldwide are taking medications, this book talks about how this often means they are being robbed of essential nutrients. These drugs can reduce your body’s stores of vital life-sustaining nutrients. The drug robs the body (mugs it) of these nutrients. Suzy Cohen has termed the nutrient depletion, the Drug Mugger effect.
When a drug robs your body of a nutrient you will experience another effect of that drug, something you call a side effect. You probably didn’t know that drugs could do that, but I bet you have experienced the drug mugging effect first hand.
One example is with antibiotics…they are drug muggers for your normal intestinal flora and when they rob your gut of these ‘friendly bacteria’ you probably get diarrhea, cramps and nausea.
Another example is with statin cholesterol drugs, like Zocor, Mevacor, Lipitor, Crestor, etc….when these medications mug your body of Coenzyme Q10, you get side effects like muscle aches, fatigue and cardiac problems in the long haul. That’s because Co Q10 is found in your muscles (your heart is a muscle isn’t it?) and so when these drugs mug Co Q10, your entire cardiovascular system and brain pay the price. Dozens of popular medications mug CoQ10, not just cholesterol busters.
Women who take hormonal replacement drugs or birth control pills could be robbed of B vitamins (among other important nutrients) and this causes all sorts of problems including low thyroid, weight gain and depression.
The list goes on and on. Knowing the information in the book is very crucial to your health and well-being and it could save your life.
One simple way to replenish nutrients is to eat a balanced diet that includes foods rich in vitamins and minerals, including leafy green vegetables, citrus fruits, grains, nuts, seeds and if you like meat, grass-fed, hormone free meats. But sometimes eating doesn’t do enough to offset the drug mugging effect, and supplementation of a particular nutrient becomes necessary.
Suzy tells you in this book, what supplementation you might need.
She also has information multivitamins, how to pick one, what to avoid, how much to take, and general safety supplement issues. Another chapter on antioxidants and probiotics which gives an explanation and the role of these in your health.

By Hyla Cass, M.D.
Similar to what Suzy Cohen’s book, the subject is also discussed by a medical doctor.
Prescription drugs can rob you of the very vitamins and minerals your body needs to overcome your current health condition. Whether you suffer from high blood pressure, high cholesterol, chronic heartburn (GERD), arthritis, diabetes, or depression, the prescription drugs you are taking can actually make your condition worse!
Why didn’t your doctor warn you about this possible side effect?
Most office visits are short, and time is limited. And the truth is, many doctors have very little knowledge about nutrition and how it affects your overall health and well-being. As a result, your doctor is unlikely to tell you how to supplement your prescription.
Dr. Cass offers essential information to complement your doctor’s advice. This straightforward, easy-to-use guide explains:
* How drugs interfere with your body’s ability to absorb and use vital nutrients.
* What nutrient depletions and side effects you can expect with the most frequently prescribed drugs.
* Which nutritional supplements and foods can safeguard against nutrient depletion and its health consequences.
* How specific diet changes and nutritional supplements can help you take control of your condition.
* Why it’s important to support your plan with a balanced diet, exercise, and other self-care basics.
* Where to go to find more information to become your own health advocate. Your medications should help, not hurt.
With “Supplement Your Prescription,” Dr. Cass shows you the way to optimal health.
