> Bottom line, you take twice of much of it and you get 10% improvement with your symptoms-so why take twice as much.. of something if it only helps 10% more.. If you pay $100 for a script and it works OK, but...they double the dosage and you pay $200 for the next script and you feel a *little* better, why spend the next $100 bucks??

Yeah well, here in Quebec we have an insurance, and we cannot pay more than a certain amount$. I have already reached the top, so I could take loads of it, it wouldn't cost me more. But that's no reason to take loads of something that doesn't make such a big difference.

(I know this is probably to be redirected, but anyways...)
I'm not pro-medication. I think we should try to be well with a minimum of drugs in ourselves. That way we can feel WE have something to do with our improvements. Plus, we don't always fear the 'poop-out'. Well I know this is not always that easy in real life.

I don't buy that 'neurotransmitters imbalance' theory anyway. It's not completely false, but it's so business-related! I think the biological aspect of disorders is more of a structural nature, structural in terms of development, in the childhood, of how we relate to environment. What is adaptative in childhood becomes pathological in the adult world. Massive repression of emotions (limbic system) is probably the central point here. If one does not have access to his/her emotions, how can he/she have a sane identity?

That's it for now!
