articles like this are dangerous - saying that since 1% of the population taking these life saving drugs may have increased risks then the medication must be bad and an example of drug companies taking advantage of people -- hogwash -- adding insult to injury the article goes on to suggest that instead of taking medication - there are 'no cost' remedies, like eating right, exercising, and talking to friends...certainly these 'no cost' steps are important but
not a replacement. that's as outrageous as telling a diabetic to stop taking insulin and just eat better...dangerous...see more at my blog - http://through-the-dark-into-slight.blogspot....

Thanks for the voice of reason... I was getting caught up in the panic too. Your response reset the panic meter.

I have used http://qgeneric.info/#fykz for about 3 years and find their products to be reliable and speedily delivered. The Support team are very promt and helpful in solving any issues that arise,caused by my errors not the company's. I was a little sceptical initially about buying generic products rather than brand names. However, the Mens' Health products I have bought have been equally as efficatious as the brand names at a fraction of the cost.

You must be kidding with the insulin-diabetic fraud line.

There is a medical test for diabetes that shows low blood sugar.

These mood drugs make people feel like uncreative zombies and that leads to suicide.

All psychiatric drugs have the potential to cause withdrawal reactions, including the antidepressants, stimulants, tranquilizers, antipsychotic drugs, and “mood stabilizers” such as antiseizure drugs. When the individual’s condition grows markedly worse within days or weeks of stopping the psychiatric drug, this is almost always due to a withdrawal reaction. However, misinformed doctors and misled parents, teachers, and patients think this is evidence that the individual “needs” the drug even more when what the patient really needs is time to overcome the drug’s contrary effects on the brain and body.

You are better off having a “psychotic” episode in mongolia than in the U.S. Why? Because third-world countries have better recovery rates for so-called “mood disorders” than the United States and other industrialized nations that keep their psychiatric patients “maintained” on these nasty drugs. In the United States, one “psychotic” episode will almost always land you in psychiatric pill wasteland for the rest of your life. It is psychiatry itself that created the chronicity in so-called “mental illness”.

Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. http://inhousegeneric.com is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.

I've been on Effexor from http://goo.gl/DmlKns only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
