There are too many fundamentals that are wrong, that are keeping many away from the appropriate treatment for their situation.

I have no problem with people getting psychiatric treatment with medications. But what I do have a problem with, an we all should, is not having fully informed consent to receive Psychiatric care with medications. Not all of the effects these meds have on someone are listed, nor is it listed that they can persistent for end indefinite amount of time after discontinuing the Med. One of the most common complaints i've read about is the permanent sexual dysfunction. It can range from that to a permanently altered mood.

And there hasn't really been any push to clear up the misconception that these medications "fix a chemical imbalance" or "regulate your neurotransmitters back to normal". That is simply not the case. These meds are much more likely to *cause* a chemical imbalance , in much the same way Cocaine does, than to fix one (if there is one). If it were to fix a chemical imbalance, then that would be akin to a one in a million chance of being in The right place at the right time. But yes, this chemical imbalance that meds such as Prozac cause an indeed be beneficial, as shown by the experiences you've mentioned. And this is great if this effect can be sustained long-term, without eventually causing problems down the road, such as in myself.

And thankfully with Chemotherapy, it is ONLY used on someone who actually has Cancer. Someone who actually needs it. It would be unethical and illegal for a doctor to tell a patient he needs chemo,without actually having cancer.And as far as I understand, the people who receive it are notified of the full severity of its effects. It is much more difficult to hide the ill side effects of a treatment, when they are physical.

With psychiatric meds, too many receive them without needing them. Without even having a simple blood test done first. Or who would benefit as well, or better from talk therapy instead of a chemical treatment.
