Is there a Message in the Bottle?

Is there a Message in the Bottle?

     A couple of years back, there was big to-do in the media, for at least two days, about the efficiency of anti-depressants being called seriously into doubt. Imagine that. Really? Big Pharmacy had been making all those billions of dollars all those years selling billions and billions of tiny Happiness pills and it turned out they didn’t actually WORK? Well, never. Are they gonna pay the money back?

    Pardon me for being cynical. It’s not a virtue.  Here’s some images that speak eloquently of the issue.

Hm…. Maybe the Message is, that we need more than pills…?

Having said all that, some conditions involving mental issues appear to be clearly treatable with a sympathetic regime of very specific drugs. Early diagnosis, prompt treatment, follow through… and it works. So there is no one sided, simple truth here. You can’t say drugs are all bad, or all good. Many of us harbor though a deep suspicion, that drugs are WAY over prescribed, and that the Profit Motive is hardly the most positive/likely road towards the unselfish creation of human happiness.

Caution.
