Too much medicine

After posting 'bout how oft times I find myself reducing medication, I chanced upon a blog by an American psychiatrist saying they're largely pushed to do the opposite.

Apparently they're practising in a less critically rigorous culture and dish out antidepressants, antipsycholtics, anxiolytics and mood stablisers largely according to symptoms rather than to address the underlying condition provoking symptoms of distress.

So today I'm happy that I'm not practising mental health across the pond.
