    Like I said, I am not a doctor but I have scleroderma and have been on many drugs that cause very bad side affects that caused symptoms much worse than the disease. I took myself off all those drugs and NONE of them caused bad withdrawal symptoms.

    So in my 'untrained' mind but with my powers of observation (and I DO have strong observation gifts..) and the number of people I know VERY well who have tried to get off these drugs and have not been successful and with my personal research of people who are trying to get off them, had bad experiences and seen very few success stories , ONE must wonder why? The few that have gotten off say they are so happy to return back to real emotions etc.

    If it is not addictive what causes that difficult withdrawal? And having some knowledge of the evil of money, power, bad drugs , my conclusion, until someone proves otherwise, is as I stated- these drugs are addictive.

      Big Pharma is renown for making up diseases which they did with "chemical imbalance" for depression.

      I have been severely depressed in the past and I know most depression results from bad diet, traumatic experiences, loss of a loved one and FEAR-based egos.

      Depression can be worked through if one dares to face one's personal demons- and we all have those demon-memes- BUT because it does take a lot of personal self reflection, time and work, most feel defeated too quickly and beg for help, which in our society today is equal to a quick fix, be it a pill, alcohol, food, money, shopping, gambling, drugs- pick your self-medication, we all do it.

      And is there a spell correctly drug out there yet?  LOL!

      I do appreciate your comments and the work you've done in mental illness. I am trying to help from outside the box because I do understand human nature and life etc.

        is so busy creating illnesses to repackage older drugs for that they have interfered - in my point of view -  with the writing of the new Diagnostic and Stat manual that insurance companies use to code illnesses for paying and that provides all those little numbers for specific illnesses. Like Schizophrenia, Paranoid type 295.30

        Big pharam shouldn't have any say in it whatsoever.

        Depression also comes from genetic-based illness that causes the over-hyped 'chemical imbalance'. Some folks are just going to be depressed, medication WILL be necessary - which ones is an ongoing effort between a good MD and a client - but therapy cannot be ruled out. Meds are little more than a tool to help a person be able to engage in the work of therapy.

        Big Pharma doesn't talk about that.

        In 21st Century America, marijuana is still considered more dangerous than guns.

          to physical, chronic illness, as was my case. Once I was diagnosed with SD my depression disappeared in a nano-second!
          That took over 15 years and one suicide attempt. So I do understand.

          One must pay attention to oneself and one's body and its just too much work for most to do that because of so many distractions and the way our world is spinning out of control these days. But to just accept the obvious HARM being done by the Big Pharmas and at such speed and numbers of fatalities is so sad to me.

          too many have stopped truly caring about their fellow human beings and thats unacceptable, but sadly I do understand the whys.

      examine how, exactly, you're defining "addictive." I lost both my mother and my little sister to their addiction to medical care. The drugs that came with were just 'proof' that they were getting what they considered good medical care. And both were of the strange opinion that no matter what prescription drug they'd been prescribed for whatever ailment, it was something they had to take religiously every day for the rest of their too short lives.

      You've got a complaint, the doctor prescribes a drug. You take the drug and are back at the doctor's office the next week with complaints about a side effect of the drug. So you get another drug to counter the side effect of the first drug, and then you're back the next week with yet another side effect of the second drug... and so on and so forth. I finally had enough of spending good money traveling across three states every few months to deal with whatever complaint had them hospitalized this time. Once, Mom's new doctors tried to impose a cold turkey situation in-hospital to figure out which drugs she needed and which she didn't, but my sister was busy smuggling her drugs to her during visiting hours.

      So I packed up the drugs she took every day - they fit into just one standard case-size canned goods box - and dumped them out on the doctor's desk. Told him Mom had a problem he was aiding and abetting. He pulled out the desk reference and we went through all of them - she ended up with 3 medications she actually needed. She got a new doctor and 6 months later was timing her daily doses by what soap opera was on TV again.

      These people I loved were not physically addicted to any of these drugs. They were severely psychologically addicted to them and any other drug they saw advertised on TV, just had to have it even if they had no idea what it was for. All those many doctors and all those many drugs didn't make their lives any more comfortable or one second longer. I call it "suicide by medical addiction," it's accomplished by people who don't feel important unless they're sick. So they spend their lives sick. And they die young of being sick. Very, very sad. But I don't think there's a pharmaceutical drug to cure that...
