9. Medication Side Effects
Why It Happens: The side effects of a number of medications, including decongestants, anti-depressants and anti-coagulants like warfarin, have all been shown to increase the incidence of nosebleeds.
Additional Info: All the world health authorities agree that the chronic diseases afflicting society today (heart disease, cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s) have their beginnings in poor lifestyle choices. They are the result of years and years of poor eating habits, lack of exercise and obesity.
What To Do: Following a healthy lifestyle (eating a nutritious diet, exercising regularly and maintaining a healthy weight) will reduce the risk of chronic disease and the need for medications with side effects that can cause nosebleeds and other problems.
