Every ADHD medication ever: "this pill will help control symptom A. Possible side effects include symptoms B, C, and A" So why am I taking this medicine?!
@Drunkle Qrow, "these anti-depressants may increase depression and suicidal thoughts or actions"
@darkness my friend, I've seen that market and you are 100% correct, that's EVERY. SINGLE. ONE.
@Drunkle Qrow, As I have found out on my own when a drug is classified as experimental then people who are using it have EVERYTHING bad that happened during their use of the meds recorded. That’s why you get those giant lists of “side effects” in commercials and such, it’s listing off every bad thing that’s happened to the testers’s health regardless of whether it’s actually a side effect of the meds.
That's the reality of our world; we have pills for just about everything, but sometimes the side effects are worse than what you're trying to cure!
@Suicide Squad Sucks, like anal leakage........
@Suicide Squad Sucks, usually there are more effective non-pharmacological treatments but MDs are often eager to prescribe and people avoidant of treatment that asks them to put genuine effort into improving their lives.
@Monad Vairocana, Also insurance companies tend to only give coverage for drug treatment instead of “multidisciplinary” approaches, which pushes doctors toward pills
I know a lot of people are against pharmaceuticals, and quite frankly, I don't blame them. The companies charge way too much for what, in many cases, is necessary medicine for life. (Chronic conditions like diabetes, asthma, or even antibiotics for an infection that could very well turn deadly). However, on the other hand, these medications can drastically improve quality of life. Most of the time when doctors prescribe medications, they deem that benefit is greater than the risk. In a lot of cases, that is true. However, if you are on a long term medication that causes side effects that need to be treated with other medications, then yeah, if you can, it's best to switch to a different type. For short term medication, it can't always be avoided.
I mean, I live in Canada, and in my experience, doctors aren't as prescription heavy as in the US. But that's just my perspective
Now this is a vicious cycle.
Weed solves all that with no side effects.... smoke weeeed everydayyyy
*prescribed paid meds*
It's a sad story
If you have to take pills to counter ter other pills, maybe don't take those pills
