I have become concerned that doctors today are all too readily resorting to medication for a variety of ailments. Chiefly, depression worries me. Feeling blue? Have some Prozac! Lame. I mean, I know that sometimes medication is necessary, but this often? Nah.
Totally depends on the individual. A pill can't be the answer for everyone. Hopefully your doctor knows you well enough to tailor a specific therapy that is right for you and you alone. If it ends up involving Meds, that's not necessarily a bad thing either. Some people truly need them.......... but I agree, doctors should not become drug pushers.
"What a long, strange trip it's been."
I recently changed primary physicians to a newer Doctor after my previous had retired after many years.
The newer Doctor is, very much more prone to offer pills...
My first appointment, I'd brought up a concern...and without tests of any sort, immediately offered pills.
I was a bit put off by this, and have had a few more appointments with him - the same kind of 'here's a pill' kind of regimen.
After my next appointment - I'm going to decide whether to hop or stay...
