The Problem with Medications:

There is no doubt that modern medicine has made astronomical advances in recent decades. Our diagnostic medicine has improved, therefore less people succumb to common illnesses like colds, measles and chicken pox, but outside of that- if you look around, you will see America is a pretty sick country. In fact, out of 40 of the most populated places in the world, the United States ranks a horrible 37 for its dilapidated healthcare system. Meaning that we are one of the sickest countries in the WORLD! No wonder people are depressed! Those are some pretty sad statistics! 

The trouble with using medications for depression is that it is simply a band-aid approach and nothing else. In most cases, the medications do not work and now you are left with having to wean off of an ineffective drug and try to deal with the depression and anxiety again. It’s a roller coaster ride that I know all too well!
