Drug Muggers: Which Medications Are Robbing Your Body of Essential Nutrients--and Natural Ways to Restore Them Paperback – February 15, 2011
Unpleasant, uncomfortable, and unexplained side effects? Drug Muggers is your side effect solution.
Prescription and over-the-counter drugs help millions of people with devastating diseases and chronic conditions. But in the process, these medications can also deplete the body's natural stores of vitamins, minerals, and hormones―the very nutrients you need to keep energy levels high, fend off infections, and be healthy. Pharmacist Suzy Cohen calls these medications "drug muggers," and she says it's essential to replenish what a drug mugger steals from your body in order to feel your best and avoid side effects. Not understanding the drug-mugging effect may lead to new "diseases" and possibly catastrophic health consequences.

Thank you so much for writing the book, Drug Muggers. This book helped me slow down and listen to my body, and it taught me which supplements my prescription medications are leeching from my body. Too many authors completely dismiss the value of prescription medicine, yet you hit the right balance and clearly explain the pros and cons of various drugs. Thank you so much, and I hope you continue to update this book over the years as new studies are published.
