18. Benzodiazepines

Pain Pills Aplenty

These drugs are commonly used in people to treat anxiety. They become dangerous and even deadly when taken together with alcohol, opioids, or barbiturates. People who consume benzodiazepines in unhealthy doses run the risk of overdose and dementia. 

17. Anticoagulants

Medicines

These drugs are also called warfarin, Xarelto, or heparin. When used for medical purposes, anticoagulants can help counter the risk of blood clotting. 

What makes anticoagulants dangerous is that they help make the blood “thinner.” And when overconsumed, these drugs can cause many problems, including external and internal bleeding. Additionally, anticoagulants become deadly when taken with aspirin and various other drugs used for blood thinning.

16. Antidepressants 

Antidepressants

Antidepressants are used, as you can probably guess, to treat depression. They become harmful to the body when taken with opioids, NSAIDs, or various other drugs which affect the levels of serotonin. 

If you’re consuming too many antidepressants, you might suffer from issues such as serotonin syndrome, internal bleeding, and even suicidal thoughts.
