Seriously, why don’t doctors mention that there are over 60 medication for emotional issues? It’s like playing Russian Roulette in medicine. Sadly I’m posting this blog because I have a young client who was prescribed medication that caused side effects and the sad thing is, the doctor asked very few questions before whipping his prescription pad out. I don’t understand why doctors don’t ask more questions that pertain to the blood flow which may cause the emotional issue. I think more education should be required of doctors prior to writing prescriptions that cause suicidal effects. If Dr. Amen (www.amenclinics.com) gives his information away for free, why aren’t more psychiatrists reaching out to further their education on understanding how blood flow effects someone’s emotions.
Hopefully others can use this document to understand the need to ask their doctor prior to writing a prescription, IS THIS THE RIGHT MEDICATION FOR MY BRAIN?
A point to ponder on my friends….
