It seems to be the way of things these days to medicate for almost any emotional or behavioral problem. Most Doctors and psychiatrists are all too happy to prescribe mind altering drugs to anyone who asks for them in the form of antidepressants. This trend seems to be causing more problems than they solve by causing violent and suicidal actions by those taking these drugs. What happened to laying on the couch of a Phychiatrist and talking about your problems? Now they just write a prescription and send you on your way. Of course, they have you make another appointment so you can get another prescription. This makes me believe it’s all about the $$$$.
I think we forget that depression, anxiety, and hyperactivity are just a part of everyday life. No one goes thru life without times of sorrow, stress, or even fear sometimes. Instead of working thru these times we are pushed by many of the medical community to take a “quick fix” in the form of mind altering and body damaging “happy pill”.
It is natural for children to be what adults would consider hyperactive. Kids have a lot of energy. Not to mention how much sugar are in most of their diets. Instead of cutting down the sugar and maybe teaching them about respect and manners, too many of them are said to be ADHD or ADD and given a pill to slow them down. Some kids get slowed down forever.
What about the effect on our veteran, who have already been thru enough and find it hard to get simple medical treatment when they come home because of the back logs at the VA? What happens to some of them when prescribed so call antidepressants?
I have written on the subject of drugs being a demonic gateway. I stand by my conclusions in that area. Prescription drugs like these are no exception in my mind. I believe the chemicals in these drugs open a pathway for demonic activity to flourish just like in street drugs. What is Satan’s objective? To kill, steal, and destroy. That’s what I see is happening with these so called antidepressants.
