15. This why..
Edited on Thu Apr-20-06 02:59 PM by sendero
.... you should do your own research any time a drug is prescribed to you and ESPECIALLY if it is a drug you will be taking a long time.

The SSRI-type drugs are a miracle worker for the truly clinically depressed. But they have some nasty side effects. If you are suffering through a situational depression, or if your depression os milder in nature, you might be better off just roughing it out.

Many other drugs designed for long term chronic use are very expensive, have sides that are not talked about, and are sometimes worse than the underlying disease they are supposed to treat.

Like pretty much every thing else in America, including education, religion, and law enforcement - drugs are a BUSINESS. Be a smart consumer.
