OK - a bit off topic, but worth throwing this out there for you people. 

 

According to recent research, doctors over the world are prescribing pills that ARE NOT NECESSARY. Yes, you read it right. 3 out of 10 patients are given pills they do not even need! When asked why, the doctors stated "patient pressure" as the reason. People do not want to leave the surgery empty handed. So all those lovely side effects we are getting, all the reactions... is all our fault! Apparently.

Oh so very true. I remember when I was working I heard all the time from employees..."Wow!! I just heard about a new medicine. I think I will talk to my dr about it.".

How could anyone get excited about medicine!?

 

I can't remember the last time I took something other than my AD... I have questioned everything my doctor has said since he screwed up my Citalopram withdrawal.

 

Forget the pressure, tell the TRUTH!!
