Most drugs of abuse are addictive. Addiction is a chronic, relapsing disease characterized by compulsive drug seeking and use despite negative consequences and by long-lasting changes in the brain. People who are addicted have strong cravings for the drug, making it difficult to stop using. Most drugs alter a person’s thinking and judgment, which can increase the risk of injury or death from drugged driving or infectious diseases (., HIV/AIDS, hepatitis) from unsafe sexual practices or needle sharing. Drug use during pregnancy can lead to neonatal abstinence syndrome, a condition in which a baby can suffer from dependence and withdrawal symptoms after birth. Pregnancy-related issues are listed in the chart below for drugs where there is enough scientific evidence to connect the drug use to negative effects. However, most drugs could potentially harm an unborn baby.
Two important factors that need to be addressed before starting any fat burner are prescription medications and medical conditions. WebMD offers a list of potential interactions ranging from moderate to severe. Medical conditions are another potential issue. Take mental health into consideration. Ingredients in fat burners like St. John’s Wort and kava affect mood. This can interact with medications that also affect mood. You should consult with your physician if you have high blood pressure, liver conditions, kidney conditions and more. The safest bet is to contact your doctor before taking any supplement, not just a fat burner. It’s never a good idea to take advice from fat burner reviews.
