That's unfair. Brain chemistry is very volatile, most of the times there is no way to know how one patient would react. I took several kinds of ADs until my doctor discovered the one that actually helps me.
I had this discussion in later post in this thread about this. Maybe that generalization was a bit unfair.. Doctors in my state must just be a lot different than others.. They don't care about their patients and will just write anything without thinking twice.
A good doctor will monitor you and do weekly follow-ups for the first 3 months, helping you through getting adjusted.. I understand that some people can not help to be depressed due to brain chemistry (their brain not mixing the right chemicals together) and have to have medication. I understand this, but at the same time, they should be closly monitored until a good solution is found.
I guess I have just had horrible experiences with them, see how bad they have changed my brother, so therefore I'm really cautious about them
