    Yes I can believe the lot - my brother (Prof Neurology) warned me that all drugs have some side effect (and that's the good ones - excluding the number which had to be withdrawn). Medics are not "pushovers" and recognise the need for thorough research - insufficient it seems. The Psyches must be more easily suggestible though.

    good one

    JPV good post. Happy to see that author finally woke up and got on the good side instead of the dark side.

    As someone having CFIDS for so long I have always intuitively known that drugs are bad because of how ill I would immediately get and in the following days. After a round of vicodin I became bedbound for months.

    Funny what she says about psychologists. The last psychologist I saw, after telling him about my chemical sensitivity and sensitivity to all drugs. The first thing he says is "I won't talk to you unless I can prescribe you a medication".

    Got another good one. My brother was on a drug cocktail for years. One for sleep, another for depression, etc.etc. He was bedbound and basically disabled for three years at the age of 45 and finally dropped all the drugs and started a vitamin program with a naturopath after reading a book about the drug companies. He is now activily involved in the community and activism. With the drugs before he was on a slow path to CFS. Crazy.

    I clearly remember back when drugs like Prozac were first being introduced, how the psychological community, en masse, declared that these sorts of drugs signaled a clear shift in their belief that most psychological conditions were actually chemical and not emotional.

    What a bunch of degenerates.
