Question-- would you post the same message on a cancer, lupus, or alzheimer's message board? Depression and anxiety are BIOMEDICAL problems that leave patients at a disadvantage to varying degrees to deal with life circumstances. In most cases, medication can help. YES, patients should make well-educated, cautious choices about treatment options. Patients should also consider alternative treatments and therapies to supplement medication. But this social taboo and intolerance for antidepressants and antianxiety medications is unwarranted and counterproductive. Why should people with biologically-based medical problems deny themselves relief and recovery through medication? Why should these patients, already suffering, have to endure such intolerance for their condition or be made to feel that less effective alternatives are somehow morally superior to effective medication?
