The hospital I was in only used medication (other then things like anti-depressants, mood stabilizers and such) to sedate the patients that were having trouble being settled. It didn't happen a lot and they would tell the patient and/or the patients carer/family. I have been put on a lot of medication and it has really helped me. The doctors can only prescribe medication in the hospital I use so it's more the doctors misusing the medication then the hospital. I don't agree with highly medicating someone if they don't need it or they are not going to benefit from it.

You are so right. I was in a psych ward when I was younger and they had me on so many meds by the time I got out that it only made my bipolar worse. I was violent and angry all the time. I took myself off all of my meds 6 years ago. Still get depressed....but nothing like I was. I channel my feelings a bit differently too....but tons of medicines isn't the answer all the time.
