beautifully_awakened A Mayo Clinic study finds that nearly 70 percent of Americans are prescribed at least one medication, with antibiotics, antidepressants, and opioids topping the list.

The big pharmas stay winning because most Americans can't suck shit up and deal with life like the rest of the world does. •If you can't sleep. Pop a pill. •Someone died. Pop a pill. •Job loss. Pop a pill. •Break up. Pop a pill •Depressed. Pop 5 pills. •Bad grades in school. Pop a pill •"PTSD" pop a pill. •Your dog died. Pop a pill
•Favorite show cancelled. Pop a pill. •Kim Kardashian didn't tweet u back. Pop a pill. •Your parents suck. Pop a pill. •Gained weight. Pop a pill
•Those damn pills.... We all have been depressed, heartbroken, sick, lost a loved one, had crappy parents and crappy lives, so does the rest of the world. Popping a pill for every emotion and struggle you don't want to go through is not the only option. That's just the easy way out. If this post pisses you off. Go pop a pill and then unfollow me. #Americans #Prescription #Drugs #SadButTrue #ProzacNation #Epidemic #PillPoppingNation #WakeUp #HealthCare #Pharmaceuticals #Medication #Depression #SideEffectsWorseThanTheIllness

  •   clynmg Ha, so true I'm always saying this. I barely take tylenol, never mind anything else! 3h
  •   yaya82_ Totally agree with this post. So true 2h
  •   vegankhaleesi I think many people with mental problems like depression, bipolar, schizophrenia, ADHD, etc DEFINITELY need help from medication. I know people who would are completely different without it, and I don't mean in a good way. I don't think it's fair to vilify medicine in all cases. For instance, I have hives, and without cetirizine I break out in intensely itchy rashes all over my body at random. I've tried various methods over medicine, but nothing worked. I couldn't imagine going day to day with hives and nothing to control them. 1h
  •   vegantake0ver Lolol they got a pill for unfollowers too lol priceless. Excellent caption. Your child hyper give them a pill. He's full of energy give them a pill. Smh it's an absolute shame 1h
  •   mandapanda978 Yes and then when you have an auto immune disease like I do you can't get much help, but if you're fat you can have everything. 1h
  •   neesha_k_allday Ain't that the truth 54min
  •   beautifully_awakened Totally forgot that one. Parents who take their kids to see a doctor because they are hyper, those kids don't get one pill, they like 30 bottles because when they are hyper one bottle ruins them up, then they need 29 bottles to fix the damage they've caused. Maybe I didn't mention that one because some random parent of a hyper kid probably believes their kid is hyper because they have ADHD or whatever thing doctors diagnosed kids with these days... And they would feel offended. You know. We aren't in the business to offend people. @vegantake0ver (even laughing at this comment feels wrong) 32min
  •   beautifully_awakened @vegankhaleesi well there are special cases where medication are needed and of course I would use some if I had no other option. And like you, I myself have seen people with depression "be different" without it and while the results of it was great it was only temporary and a lot of this people depended on it. I'm sure that isn't always the case. I've also spent 6 years workings with adults and children in the mental health field and yes, I remember kids with behaviors such as head banging, and severe pica, schizophrenia and other mental illnesses be not be themselves after being medicated. It would stop the behaviors and these people would just sit on a couch all day "dope up" on medication - barely able to do anything. In those situations sure, i can justify it until something better comes along. When it comes to depression.... I can't. I believe the depression medication just makes people worse in the long run, but that's just my opinion based on personal experience and what I've seen throughout the years. / I think this post raises a much bigger issue in our health care system. There are millions of people that do not need medication for certain things but those people always go with their first choice, which is to medicate for something. By the way, I am sorry for your allergy. I know the feeling. I was allergy to shellfish for many years and always had to carry an epipen with me. Sure it saved my life a couple of times. 14min

perlindecrantz Today's historical combo: Ambar - methamphetamine 10 mg + phenobarbital 65 mg. Probably made that squeeze at least a bit more enthusiastic and relaxed at the same time. #meth #methamphetamine #phenobarbital #barbiturates #ambar #pharmaceuticals 20h

perlindecrantz Returning to the exciting world of historical combination medicaments - I present to you "Allenbury's throat pastilles"! Combining diamorphine (a.k.a. heroin) and cocaine meant they quite likely were one of the most effective and popular throat pastilles of all time. Central and local anesthesia with a pinch of stimulating and euphoric effect must have been pretty damned soothing. #heroin #cocaine #throatpastilles #pharmaceuticals #anesthetics #goodshit #otc #curiosity #bafucin #zyx #mucoangin #sorethroat #läkerol 2d
