Misuse of Antipsychotic Drugs in Nursing Homes Rampant

Large amounts of nursing homes here in Texas are understaffed, creating a situation where the nurses are stretched too thin in the activities. Many of the residents have mental health issues that require extensive attention and can be challenging to deal with. The common person would expect the homes to just hire additional nurses to pick up some of the work, but in practice the nursing homes have decided on a cheaper, more sinister solution.

Vision loss linked to Amiodarone use

Many people in the San Antonio area take Amiodarone to prevent irregular heart activity, such as arrhythmias. Arrhythmias prevent proper blood flow to the heart and can lead to cardiac arrest. At-risk patients also receive the medication before surgeries to minimize the risk of complications. The Food and Drug Administration approved Amiodarone in 1985 as a treatment for serious arrhythmias. Since its approval, there have been links to the medication to many complaints of life-threatening symptoms and death.
