yep..according to these stats…prescrition stats are climbing and climbing…they are handing out prozac etc like lollies..
anecdotal evidence backs this up..last year i was feeling a bit crook, and went to a doctor..
his physical examination was cursory, at the very best…then he tried to talk me into taking a script for some tranks….
i quoted a few news reports on reported problems with these pills..he reassured me they were safe…and urged me to take the script..
i pointed out to him that as a former heroin/cocaine addict i was somewhat chary of taking up/trying new items of addiction..
he still tried..saying these were ok….
i was outta there….and yes, i got better; and no, i shouldn’t have taken up the offer for the tranks…
but what really grinds my gears is the way these pill-pushers are writing so many scripts for ritalin..for nippers..
i used ritalin recreationally decades ago….it is firmly in the garbage bin of drugs..a nasty, speedy high..shudder!
it horrifies me that nippers as young as four to five are given this poison….yeah, they quieten down all right..because their brains are scrambled..they have enough on board just trying to cope with that..
