I am amazed at the amount of people who want that “wonder pill” instead of looking at what they themselves are doing to their body. The AMA isn’t helping by not ever asking people their patients about their lifestyle and eating habits. I have only had one doctor ever ask me that. I got my GBS from stress but that is hard to control.After taking care of my mom for 5 years and then watching her die, then my best friend had a major heart attack and another friend commmitted suicide two months after my mom died. I did not want to take any anit-depressive drugs. We have to be aware of the BAD drugs out there. I just read about Tamiflu which does more harm than good. I would think it is the doctors’ responsibility to keep up to date on this, but most don’t so it is up to us. That was a great post.
