I dont think any of these medications have proved there worth scientifacly.In that regard i can understant why people would choose to step away from these drugs.
I am not the same person i was at 18 when i took my first med,i trusted a "doctor".In hinds site knowing what i know now i would have challenged many avenuse before considering these drugs.
No matter how much tom cruise goes on the air,or how much pharm manf run commercials,the TRUTH is we have come next to no where in understanding emotional disoreders.
With that i dont think anyone choosing to opt for medication cause although not a cure it is something that helps them feel less pain.
I also dont see a single thing wrong with someone ready to and wantin to bury the idea of medication.
How someone can strongly debate to either side i dont understand,we just dont know.
All us lamen folk can do is sit wait and hope someone out there is doing some real research,and at the same time try to save the ones we care about to the best of our ablitys.
And when u see someone u love in pain,agony tears,you will consider all options even drugs to help them.
I will admitt im envious to anyone who can do it med free,i tried,i went a year off them and it was just so hard,i spent so much time struggling that when i took a look at the big picture of my life,i saw that yeah i was med free,but i spent 90 percent of my time in a constant struggle,and i just dident want that anymore.
I also personaly believe that earlier drugs certain ones that i just wont mention cause i dont wanna scare anyone ,but i feel these specific one or two mainstream drugs have caused some type of damage that will live with me for the rest of my life.
Good luck to all of us as we all pick our brains every single day trying to oblivate this pain.
