>I have no idea if you were feeling better, feeling better because of euphoria, or feeling euphoric
Not sure what that's supposed to mean. Are you saying that if a med makes someone feel better this is a form of euphoria?
And who is to say what a drug's intended purpose should be? Some people believe that atypical APs should never be used to treat insomnia.......other people believe that using APs to treat insomnia is perfectly acceptable. It's all a matter of opinion.
>divert OTC medications
It seems that you're referring to the diversion of OTC meds after using them to synthesize other drugs. I was thinking more of diversion of drugs in their original state.
>Catatonic" "Vast majority." That means "most all people." I just said it!
I wouldn't say most people with schizophrenia are catatonic. Most people with schizophrenia suffer from delusions, hallucinations and disorganised behaviour. Catatonia is present in some but not the vast majority.
>only Canada and the UK have caps
That's not true at all. Many countries have price controls. Certainly, most European countries do.
>I wouldn't want a end-all happy pill for antidepression that cost only $1 million to produce to come to market. That would scare me and suggest that they tested it on like 2 patients.
Well no, but for widely prescribed drugs like APs pharmaceutical companies do not need to charge such high prices to regain the money they spent on research. They quickly end up making huge profits.
>Go petition the FDA, but you're not likely to get anywhere.
Nah, I won't bother thanks.
