Apology accepted. I understand your frustration.
The problem with over-prescription of certain drugs is clearly a problem. But I am come to the conclusion that such drugs are being dispensed so
freely is indeed to render the Populace Unable to acquire firearms.
I feel like a doctor in the Societ Union who's job, while to heal, is also to disable the fighting potential of political dissidents, be it through
medicating them or simply writing a prescription which automatically disqualifies them from firearms ownership.
Even if that person never fills the prescription - it is too late.
*To any other physicians out there; Please do not allow yourself to be utilized as a political weapon. We all know what happens when our patients
stop taking their anti-depressant/anti-anxiety medication(s).
What would happen to them if their was a solar flare tomorrow? What would happen if the economy shut down, or for some reason they were unable to
acquire their medication? Think about it.
You know full well what would happen to those poor people, and it will be Us that have done it to them. Who do you think they will blame? Who do
you think they will be coming after? What if they have a family during a severe episode of withdrawals which we know can cause Violence?Do you see
what I mean?
We must start informing our patients of the Political and Legal Ramifications of the drugs we prescribe. Reading the list of Physical and Mental
side-effects no longer will suffice in this day and age.
We owe it to our patients. We must consider ALL of the consequences of our actions.
