Newsflash, this guy's daddy was filthy rich, he didn't have that problem.
I think the real problem is all the pills doctors hand out like candy, not guns. Doctors are in the business of hiding symptoms with expensive pills,
not trying to cure anything. Big pharma has our medical system by the balls, the AMA is a joke and a hindrance to us. They keep doctors scarce, to
keep prices sky high, that doesn't help matters any either.
Doctors aren't even aware of listed side effects half the time, let alone the ones the lobbys fight to keep off the list. People had to fight to get
suicidal urges put on antidepressants because of them, and others are not fighting to get aggression added to a lot of psych drugs as

As someone with medical conditions, I can attest that a lot of the times doctors DO know the side effects and are more than happy to STILL throw the
pills at you and then throw MORE pills at you for the side effects of the previous pills. Why? They get paid to. I refuse them half the time and
just live with the pain, but sometimes, you really have no choice. I'm on 13 pills a day, 2 of which are vitamins I've just added to my regimen to
try and reduce some pills I take. Doctors will also ignore what's wrong with you half the time, and just throw pills at you, not caring about a
single word you just said. And yes, I've refused them.
I have a doctor who every appointment with him, weighs you, draws blood, x-rays you, and that's before you're seen! Before they call you for your
co-pay you wait 3-4 hours, then they call you, you pay your co-pay, then you wait another hour, hour and a half, they take you back for the x-rays and
blood and whatnot, they put you in a room, then another hour before the doctor comes in. Then he blows you off and tells you how wrong you are and
how he knows everything and throws pills your way that have nothing whatsoever to do with what's wrong with you, writes your refills and messes them
up, so pharmacy can mess them up, so you have to make another appointment to get them fixed. IMHO, it's to scam medicaid/medicare. I don't need an
xray and blood every visit. Weight and blood pressure, yes, but all that rigamarole is just to take their money. There's no reason for it.
