Honestly everyone I know that has ever took anything for "depression" is only on the damn medication because the choice was made for them. Almost everone was forced to go to some crappy doctor who throw pills at the problem because there parnets think there kid is to lazy, sleeps to much or is weird. So they take them to the doctor and with a 10 question quiz decides its times to give them high dose of Effexor. Really who the fuck goes. I am depressed and I need some fucking medication. I know the only reason I was on medication at once was because I was lied to by doctors and my mom. They told me it was cough syrup or some bullshit. Ritalin, Liquid form. Also whats sad about this is parnets, teachers and doctors get these kids hooked on a life of SSRI's. I really think kids should have more of a choice on something thats going to alter who they are.
