Why do Americans take so many psych meds?


Our televisions treat us as if we are pathetically ignorant, and if we watch television much, we must be just that stupid. Why is it the powers that be want us drugged out of our minds?

    New Zealand is the only other nation on the planet where drugs are advertised...and they really are advertised too. "Ask your doctor if Zoloft is right for you!"

    As if a pill can fix someone's problems ...

    I've been down that road! Soon as I dumped all those pills I felt better than ever! :)

    No, you sound very wise to me, Sir. For several years I did the psych med runaround...and none of those things helped me at all. What did help was ceasing to take them.

    We've got the sickest culture in the civilized world...and the television tells all who watch it that a pill or two can fix our problems! It's disgusting :/
