All fungal infections can have serious side effects. However, these side effects usually go away once the medication is stopped. The most common side effects of fluconazole and itraconazole are nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and diarrhea. More severe infection can be treated initially with an antifungal medication intravenously, as amphotericin B (Abelcet, Amphotec, other). These drugs control the fungus, but sometimes you do not destroy, and relapses may occur.
Those against mandatory vaccines deem that the chickenpox, measles, rubella and rotavirus all have symptoms that can be treated with oral medicines and creams. Vaccine-preventable diseases have not disappeared so vaccination is still necessary and the diseases that decreased tremendously were due to the impact of vaccines. The CDC notes that many vaccine-preventable diseases are still in the United States or "only a plane ride away." Although the paralytic form of polio has largely disappeared thanks to vaccination, the virus still exists in countries like Pakistan where there were 93 cases in 2013 and 71 in 2014 as of May 15. The polio virus can be incubated by a person without symptoms for years; that person can then accidentally infect an unvaccinated child or adult in whom the virus can mutate into its paralytic form and spread amongst unvaccinated people.
Fifteen year old Lewis Blackman died after a minimally invasive surgery. The cause of death was due to perforated bowel caused by ketorolac, a highly potent non-steroidal anti-inflammatory to treat pain and inflammation and for its potential for stomach ulceration. As I read the case, I noticed the following system failures that lead to this sentinel event. First, ketorolac has a black box warning “not to be used in pediatric patients.” 1 A black box warning is the strictest warning put in the labeling of prescription drugs by the Food and Drug Administration when there is reasonable evidence of an association of a serious hazard with the drug. Having the black box around the warning means that an adverse reaction to the drug may lead to death or serious injury.2 Lewis also had low urine output post-surgery another reason ketorolac should not have been used due to ketorolac’s potentiation of renal toxicity.1 With that, this drug was used with no observed cautionary measures conducted.
This means finishing all the medicine. Stopping early can lead to recurrences and serious complications. In addition to antibiotics, there are home remedies and over the counter pain relievers, such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin 1B) or acetaminophen (Tylenol) that can help improve the symptoms of strep throat. These home remedies include drinking warm liquids, turning on a humidifier, sucking on a throat lozenge and gargling with salt and water. Strep throat is not a dangerous condition; however it can lead to serious complications if left untreated.
While no legal case for holding an individual liable for failing to vaccinate a child exists (that is known of), a case can be made for charging an individual for criminal liability under criminal negligent homicide. This was the charge given to Monica in the Law and Order episode. While Monica was found not guilty, Caplan has identified that in theory, an individual can be held liable (civil or criminal) for the death of another even under “state law permitting exemptions” (2012, 610). Although legal consequences are an option for non-complying individuals, as I have said, mandatory vaccination should be the last option for increasing vaccinations. We should also think about whether there are other ways for enforcing mandatory vaccination laws besides looking at criminal or civil liability (e.g.
Although, they do put a tiny dose of the disease in the person to strengthen the immune system to prevent an attack of a stronger dose of the disease. It is better to not have to deal with the disease at all than trying to deal with it after you
Whooping cough, also known as pertussis, is a lung infection that makes breathing challenging due to severe coughing which is easily transferred through the air (WebMD N.p.). The vaccine for whooping cough is effective in nine out of ten children who receive the immunization, therefore, creating strong antibodies in your bloodstream to reject the contagious whooping cough virus (WebMD n.p.). Among these diseases, polio is the deadliest yet the least contagious disease (WebMD n.p.). The disease itself is spread through contact with a contaminated person’s feces, but has not been a severe threat since the early 20th century, when vaccinations for polio were almost nonexistent (WebMD. N.p.).
If I was a parent, I would desire that a public health department would enforce that all children should vaccinated before they attend school; even though, there still are some parents that do not believe in vaccinations. I would like to expect that my child would be safe from diseases that are preventable by vaccinating. Childhood vaccinations should require for all American families. There has not been enough truthful evidence that connects vaccinations with autism or any other disease; therefore, why do some parents choose not to vaccinate their children. In Nicholas Kristof’s article “The Dangers of Vaccine Denial,” Dr. Philip J. Landrian writes “that there may be environmental factors linked to autism, but these relate to endocrine disrupting chemical in consumer products, not vaccines” (Kristof’s pp3).
The medication has a euphoric and sedative effect. The cost of the medication often leads people to obtain it through illegal means. One oxycodone pill can cost more than a hundred dollars. The Dangers of Demerol Demerol is similar to oxycodone. The drug provides immediately relieves pain, but overusing the medication can a resistance to the drug.
