So, I could've taken Zoloft. Then I wouldn't have to do difficult therapy. Yet. But here are the side effects that occured in more than 15% of patients with my disorders: ejaculation failure (no!!!), dry mouth, diarrhea/loose stools, nausea, insomnia. There are lot more, but they occured in less than 15%.
You know, sometimes you really do need a good anti-depressant. But I think more often than not you just need to deal with your issues and come to grips with life. And honestly, I already have insomnia. I really don't want to have to wear depends just to avoid feeling like crap (*insert joke here*).
Do we over medicate? Or do we just have more advances in science to help with lifes ails? I can see both sides, especially when my friends and I have very real mental disorders. I would argue though that we should first look toward lifestyle and attitude changes before popping a pill or 10.
