THE 'GOOD, BAD AND UGLY' OF PRESCRIPTION PAIN MEDICATIONS

Drugs which doctors prescribe for treating the symptoms of pain, anxiety and Psoriasis carry with them powerful and often destructive side-effects.

Let’s review the current list and why at Medipure we’re convinced we need new medications and a new approach:

  • The current first-line therapeutics for pain (Bupenophrene, hydrocodine and oxycodine) can produce adverse medical reactions, while creating withdrawal and dependency issues
  • Prescriptions for anxiety (Benzodiazepines, Clobazam. Clonazapam, Diazapam, Lorazepam and Midazolam) can create side-effects and withdrawal symptoms;
  • Current topical medications for Psoriasis (Cortiocosteroids and Calcipotriene) are not very effective and not safe or recommended for longer-term use.

The bottom-line is that these drugs are expensive; are not recommended for long-term use and carry significant financial burdens for individual patients and health care insurers.

At Medipure, we’re working on a revolutionary new approach. We’re collaborating with a number of well-known partners world-wide to do research on developing proprietary endocannabinoid system-based drugs for targeted diseases by regulating specific molecular mechanisms.  We believe we will produce medications, without the harmful side-effects and prohibitive costs of the currently-used therapeutics.
