  1. Unfortunately, some medical professionals, just will not listen :'(
    I hope the very culture of treating diseases is changing in current universities.
    There needs to be a subject ( a whole years’ worth ), just dedicated to overprescribing and the harms it induces.
    Involving patients to come in and talk about their horrendous experiences, would leave lasting impressions to moulding minds.
    Perhaps, those who have been adversely impacted can shed some insight into how their lives have been ruined, from overprescribing.
    Sometimes, some medical professionals feel threatened by patients who have experienced deleterious consequences from over prescribing.
    Don’t fear us ~ Learn from us!
    Unfortunately, if one tries to squeak a little or ask politely, some medical professionals feel like we are questioning their diagnosis and how to treat ~ Quite the contrary.
    We are just trying to understand how your medicine treats and what the risks are when you add one medicine upon another.
    In this day and age, it feels like you are hitting your head against a brick wall.
    Some believe the less involved you are the better it is for them.
    I have come across one or two, medical professionals, who think outside the box and are quite happy to listen to what one has to say.
    I would like to extend a special thank you to those medical professionals (wish I could mention your names), who are not afraid to be step outside the text book way of thinking.
    Sometimes, the patient, the doctor and all concerned, benefit : ) from this harmonious relationship. It is about team collaboration and working together, for the greater good.
    I will never understand western medicine.
    Some medical professionals, just seem to be compounding medical problems upon medical problems by trying to camouflage what the first prescribed medicine induced in the first place.
    If one keeps adding one medicine upon another medicine, it can get very dangerous and one never knows what negative long term effects are created.
    It is just like a downward spiral effect and I am horrified to acknowledge the consequences of over prescribing.
    Not even those who create the drugs acknowledge what may happen when you mix one drug with another.
    It sounds like some ‘wacky science ‘experiment to me.
    Good health should not be a game of chance.

    • Carla, as someone who is dependent on antidepressants and has suffered horrendous experiences at the hands of several meds over the years, I thank you for your comment. The truth is that if a family member exhibited the ‘symptoms’ of many illnesses a lot of doctors would refuse to prescribe them the meds that are officially used to treat them as they know how damaging they are and would not want someone they cared about put at risk of the harm they cause.
