    I've been prescribed loads of shit from the doctors over the years. Some serious meds..I just don't take em. Unless its like something for your heart or to fight a serious infection fuck it I say. My Mrs is on 7 different tablets now. It's a joke. Anybody else have experience of this? Picking up her script earlier and I thought I should just chuck 6/7ths of this shit in the bin..Doesn't do anything except make sure she needs them next time. She gets nervous if she don get them. She has never recovered from a single thing that they've ever been prescribed for. She doesn't even have 7 ailments ffs...Madness.

    Big Pharma is a huge, profitable and powerful thing, so you could be right.

    There's a lot of talk about more effective alternatives such as cannabis treatments for example.

    I'm not medically trained though, so really couldn't quantify the above. Perhaps that's the problem.

    Technically it's not a suit is it? More of a garish ensemble...

    I've been "self medicating" since 1988. It's not gone well! But sometimes it's been bloody brilliant.

    I know that it used to be the case - not so long ago- that Pharma Reps used to badger Doctors into prescribing the wares they represent.
    Lots of 'incentives'. I don't know if that's totally thing of the past. I hope so.

    Indeed.
    I know for a fact that there used to be all kinds of social jollies and enjoyable benefits from the 'kind' Pharma Companies -via their reps.
    Like I say, I hope that's been tightened up.

    A recent survey says that 15% of the nations women are taking medication for mental illness. Fuckln'ell that could only mean the other 85% are walking around untreated.

    I always make sure I get my medical advice from strangers on the Internet,much safer than using trained medical professionals.

    ITS mental what you can get off the Doc or at least used too, I remember walking out with a prescription for 200 mg of a box full of tramadol because I went there because of a toothache ffs not that I was complaining at the time mind :hehe: but it was very dangerous him giving me them as I could’ve easily abused them more than I did, my mate was in his element with his free prescription of downers in which he would trade some for uppers it’s too easy for the quack to give you free drugs and on your way, I’ve seen and heard loads of story’s of lads thinking they’re off their head off placebos mun
