Have you ever wondered why more and more people are being prescribed psychiatric medications for disorders?

Where did these disorders come from? Did they always exist and we never had a way to deal with them in the past? Are they something new as a result of something about our current lifestyles? Is it just a new way to make money? Is it a legalization of drugs that somehow slipped into the medical profession? Is there any validity to taking drugs for your problems or are you masking your problems? Are legal drugs fine to take because they make you feel better? What’s the difference between legal drugs and illegal drugs? Are there any long term negative effects from taking psychotropic medication? Why did Americans pay $11.9 billion for antidepressants, just in the U.S., in 2007? Are there other solutions to taking antidepressants that we don’t even know about? Is it a secret that a placebo is more effective in treating bipolar disorder than an antidepressant? And does that mean that because 20 percent of all antidepressant sales are to treat bipolar disorder that billions of American dollars are spent needlessly? Do people that have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder know how effective antidepressants are to treat it? Does the medical profession accurately explain the side effects of antidepressants for new patients? Do psychiatrists have any other solution for their patients other than prescribing psychiatric medication? Are your “problems” somebody else’s profit? Are consumers really being protected by the medical profession? Are medical students taught anything else but to prescribe drugs? Are there alternate methods for treating “disorders”? Taking psychotropics drugs must work or there wouldn’t be so many people taking it, right? Than why can’t any psychiatrist say they’ve ever cured anyone?

Is it all just a big marketing campaign?
