    Where are pain pills? I'm almost certain pain pills would be high up on that list.

    Pain relievers are easy enough to get OTC I guess.
  4. Yes it is interesting, and depressing, too.

    Now I need to go and swallow some more lexapro. :sad:

    WHy are we such a depressed society???:blink: I couldn't live decently without my Zoloft (sertraline hydrochloride) and have no intention of attempting to do so. I do'nt question the means, only the end, and if Zoloft keeps me from gaugeing the height of tall buildings, so be it. Whatever works. The question is: why does our society need so many antidepressants???? Why are we not working to solve the problem AT THE SOURCE????

    I don't give a shit, I only know that Zoloft keeps me from falling off the deep end. Better living thru chemistry...:dry:
