Re: We're Not Candy
And then you can steer them to the patented and branded mind-altering drugs.
Some of which are useful, I'm not a Scientologist or something, but really, they're mind-and-mood-altering drugs, the way they're overprescribed, in practice that respect no different than Dexys or valium at one time.
I once mentioned to a doctor I was having trouble sleeping. She prescribed not a sleep aid but Paxil. But I do not have a mood disorder, merely insomnia and circadian-rhythm issues, and I did not actually NEED Paxil. It fucked me up HARD for about a month till I went off it. Were there any tests to see if my brain chemistry was off? Fuck no. She just prescribed it.
