paxil,unethical doctors

Posted by felipe on July 30, 2002, at 0:45:27

where i live glaxo smithkline is giving out the first 30 paxil tablets for free as long as you have a prescription.i was prescribed paxil but after reading about withdrawal i am terrified to take it.i still have them here but i wont take doctor showed me some very flashy and colourful brochures about how paxil was good for anxiety,panic and depression.when i tried to question him about withdrawal and things like that, he told me that i should just do as he says or else we were wasting our time.of course i never went thing he tells me is that i can get the first 30 for free.i instantly thought that something wrong was going you think that this is an immoral and unethical way of glaxosmithkline to get more paxil "junkies"(addicts )who will keep buying it and spending their money?if thats the case its a very unethical evil thing to do and its not a new thing since dope dealers sometimes do the same.ive heard some doctors are attached in a financial way with the drug making companies so that the more they prescribe their products the better for them(they are rewarded in some way,economically i suppose).ive seen this happen before when my girlfriend,who is very young went to a neurologist and she was prescribed zoloft every day for a year or so.there was absolutely nothing wrong with her and i dont know why the phuck she was given that.she never took them though.shes never had any problem to a point of needing medication.that shyt was going to affect everything about her i am sure.she just went because she felt a bit nauseous at times.also once i was having anxiety because of binge drinking the day before i went to emergency room because of an anxiety attack.they gave me valium.when i went out i asked if it was okay to take xanax and if it was addictive.some stupid doctor told me it was ok to take it and that it wasnt i started taking them for about a month only to find it was the most addictive thing i had ever known.whenever i didnt take it anxiety was horrible.withdrawal was horrendous too and i belive i was never the same person again.since then my anxiety and depression got much worse until today(that was 1 1/2 years ago.before that i had sporadic anxiety episodes that lasted for limited times(15,days,1 month,etc)and they were mostly because of drinking but as soon as i stopped drinking they went its an every day thing.once i went to a psychiatrist and he wanted to lock me up in some sanatory because i had depression and ocd.that was the worst thing that could have been done to me.i know there i would have really gone crazy since those places may be good for some people but definetely not for make things worse i live in a country where thes places are not "the best"really,in fact theyre awful.another time ,more recently my girlfriend recommended me a psicologist who was friend of her mothers.i made the mistake to thing her mother starts hating me and im sure it started with this psychologist telling her that i wasnt right for her daughter or something like that.all these along with other experiences have made me refuse to trust doctors,especially psychiatrists and neurologists that still looking for one i can trust but they seem so hard to find.i cant figure out how so many asholes get diplomas.sorry for the long post.any comments or suggestions?
