Default Re: Being dependent on medications.

Sarah, I agree with you.

I want to point out that psychiatric drugs have been designed with timeframes. A pharmacist told me that anti-depressants were actually intended to only be taken for a year so yeah, there does exist a questionable dependency for some who take them. But, if you can only manage them then I see no problem with sticking with them. Interestingly though, the same pharmacist pointed out that other psychiatric medication - anti-psychotics for example - are designed to take for life.
