I am concerned about how many people are on shrink prescribed drugs, and that includes children.

If you have anxiety, guess what - everyone has anxiety.

If you are depressed, guess what - a lot of people are depressed.

If your child is out of control, guess what - that is what kids are, and kids should not be drugged.

Please stop drugging your kids and try and live a nice life with them.

A lot of people on this planet depend on drugs - legal or illegal - please stop drugging yourself and your kids.

If you want to know what the controllers of this world are doing, you will never know if you are drugged, and that is what they are relying on.

Why is this in 2012? Plus, i have anxiety if I choose to take a perscription med, then thats MY decision. Worry about your own problems and if you want to remain perscription med clean well good on you. You sound like Tom Cruise, are you against women using drugs in birthing? Because it couldnt be that hard and painful could it?? Cancer patients using Chemo?

Is there a ladder for your to hop on your high horse?

OK, drug your kids, give yourself those anxiety meds that sends everyone mad.

And try giving birth.

You know, there are some psychiatric drugs that do help people. I speak from experience here.

For the last fifteen years of my life, I've been plagued with severe, debilitating depression. I've been to counselors galore, tried everything under the sun (both holistic and spiritual) to try and alleviate the problem. Some things helped, some didn't.

Finally I was prescribed a medicine that has made a HUGE difference. In combination with all the other things I do, its really helped change my life for the better.

Do you believe that medication for psychotic disorders should be tossed aside as well? Just curious

I do agree with you that our society has too much of a dependency on chemical solutions....and especially with regards to children. As a school teacher and a parent, I have experienced both sides of the attention disorder phenomenon. In my opinion, the majority of children who are prescribed these medications aren't necessarily ADD or ADHD, but just rambunction youngsters. However, I have seen four students who truly were hlped by these medications.

Anyway, thanks for the interesting read!

I am sure there some helpful drugs.

But I fear there are a lot more that are actually damaging.

I am not trying to be a dictator here.

There is far more to this than meets the eye.

There are two issues as I see it.

1) there are people with real mental issues/illness. (my friends wife is one)
When she takes her meds, she is more or less normal. When she does not take her meds, she is just plain nuts...seriously.
For people like this, the meds are a god-send.

2) There are a LOT more people on meds than really don't need to be.
I also agree that far to many people go running for meds for normal, daily issues.

As OP stated, we all have bad days, get depressed, angry........ it's called the human condition.

So to make it more clear, there are some people who desperately need these meds, most others don't really need it.

BTW, this is not a new issue, remember in the 60's, "mothers little helper" or as we better know them today, valium/zanex.

forgot a rule OP

you aren't a doctor...stop telling people what to do

The fact is there are some people out there who are prescribed to when they really could just go to counseling...I will agree with that

But guess what...there are people out there who desperately and truly need medication. They take them and they get better

Some smart words i once received

"you know its okay to be sad, whatever happened to sad? Everyone is depressed this and doom and gloom that, in my day Sad was a real emotion, a good emotion to have. Now depressed has kidnapped sad and depressed sounds so entrapping. Its always good to use all your emotions and sad is still one of them, so if you wanna be sad for a little while be sad."
