Drug Dealing Doctors
Today I went to fill a script for my anti-depressant medication at the pharmacy. The Pharmacist questioned the dosage which I assured him was correct. He just looked at me and went to walk away. He then turned to me and said I need to talk to you. At first I thought he was not going to give me my medication but, then he softly asked me if I was ok on the medication, how was I copeing and did I have any side effects. As I was caught off guard I responded by telling him it was keeping my depression under control and that I had less suicidal thoughts so it must be ok. When I got the chance I googled the medication and possible side effects and realised that many people do have side effects and the drug can cause long term damage. I had been wondering why my memory was so bad, why I feel dizzy all the time and why the ground feels like it is moving underneath me. It seem this is common. So by me putting my trust in my doctor have I set myself up for brain damage??? That is just great as my brain wasnt that good to begin with. Do Doctors prescribe medication because one they think your a lost cause anyway so who cares or is it the money and a way to keep the big pharmaceutical companies in business. Regardless I may as well have taken recreational drugs and had some fun while I was at it - it would be cheaper and at least I would feel like the lose of brain cells was worth it. Very unimpressed. Who can you trust?
