Doctors are taught and are obligated to prescribe to you, in their opinion, the BEST medication for your condition. Since they are bombarded with representatives from various drug companies, generic medications
The strange part is Gabapentin is not approved for treating fibro. A improved form of Gabapentin called Lyrica is approved but is not generic. The same company made both drugs but since Gabapentin is generic and lower priced and any drug company can make it the company that held the patent came out with Lyrica instead of testing if Gabapentin worked for fibro. www.crpsadvisory.com...

I'm hardly surprised..
I wouldn't go to a doctor if I wanted folk medicine.
You can go to a DO for that. If you're going to a doctor and are sick, expect to be prescribed pharmaceuticals.
And learn about your medications.. if you don't think they are safe, don't take them.

The problem with "alternative medicine" is that they are not regulated and not tested. 95% of that stuff is quackery just like the supposed "big pharma".
