Yup. I think so.
When I went to the doctor about my depression, he didn't ask any questions really. Just the "How do you feel?" bulls#it. He put me on Medication
without questions. Paxil I believe.. He also didn't tell me about any of the side effects or withdrawals. I wasn't too happy about taking drugs to
alter my mind. I don't feel confortable at all taking them. As time went on I took them, swiched from many anti-depressants like, Effexor, Prozac,
Zoloft and Celexa. In the end I thought it was useless and hurting my pockets so I decided to stop taking them.
Three weeks later I went back because I was having anxiety problems.. He instantly "threw" me on some kind of relaxant that was highly
addictive..And me with my urges to get "messed up" didn't go well with an addictive substance, so I was worried.
Shouldn't drugs be the last resort? Counsling, social workers etc...etc.. should that not come first?
I live in Nova Scotia, Canada.. It's sad the amount of drugs that are floating around, prescriptions everywhere.. ("Come on man, buy a hit... $2
bucks a pill.)
I was just wonder what you guys think.. And is it like this where you people live?? Maybe I don't get out enough to realize.
