Will Everyone Please Wake Up And Smell The Fumes ??
I am very close to giving up on all of you. Let me try one more time. You are being over-medicated by an industry that does not have your best interests at heart. Many of you have depression or anxiety disorders, and you take medications that your GP's or psychiatrists say will adjust the level of chemicals in your brain to make you feel better.
First question to the inquiring mind - do you actually feel better?
Second question to the inquiring mind - do you have side effects that make you question the benefit of taking the drug?
Third question - does going off the drug make you feel worse?
If, like almost all people, you answered, "No", "Yes" and "Yes", then we are on the path to truth.
Let me share something that EVERY,and I mean EVERY, scientist looking at mental health knows today - the levels of neurotransmitters in the brain has nothing directly to do with your mental health. Those levels are just a symptom of a deeper problem - the physical deterioration of brain cells that are then incapable of producing and making use of the right levels of chemicals. Pumping more neurotransmitters into the brain with today's medications is like pumping air into a tire that has a huge hole in it. Scientists know this now. Really. They'll let you know when they have a new drug that can actually do something about the problem. Until then, you can keep using the snake oil.
Do some research on your own. Don't believe a post on a website from me. You or your loved ones are being led around by the nose by the Pharma industry that has billions of dollars in sales in drugs that don't work. Read "The Emperor's New Drugs". Read about the ability of ketamine to relieve the symptoms of depression in one hour. Why do you trust your doctor when he/she gets all of her information from the drug companies?
