> I'm not so sure the comparison between a high blood pressure med and a psych med is not valid. The bp med controls symptoms and does not cure. It also does it in a manner that disrupts natural body functions. Often one med does not work and another type of bp med is chosen. Sometimes a combo is needed. Sometimes one stops working and another is needed. Not that much different really than psych meds. Keep tinkering with the body until a desired result is produced. For all I know my bp med may be causing some unknown damage with it's disruption of natural processes to lower my pressure.
> The alternative people might say I need to get my body in balance with diet exercise and blah blah blah. Well I've dieted and erercised and my pressure is still high. So I take my meds.>>

Bulldog, here is a link to foods that help high blood pressure:

Even if you have tried this, maybe it can help someone else.

By the way, even though I think we have different positions on meds, I completely agree with you about the alternative folks. I actually have more contempt for most of them then I do psychiatry.

I think they are taking advantage of people who are dissatisfied with psychiatry and to me, that is even more disgusting. Not all of them but quite a few.
