Indeed watching the ads of drug companies does have an effect on the consumer, they either think that that they also have the disease and need the drug badly or that the more they see the drug on TV the more effective it is. Some people do self diagnosis and its good that Paxil and any other antidepressants need a prescription from a doctor in order to get it. It may be that one can get addicted to prescription medicine, and if you want to know about Paxil addiction you can check this site out http://www.paxilbirthdefectlaw.com/paxil-addi...

You folks sure like to focus on the negative. Prescription drugs save hundreds of millions of lives every year, and vaccines save even MORE than that. Sure, there are going to be side effects, but it's the FDA's job to determine whether or not they are justified considering the potential benefits of the medication.

If a medication that would save my life gave me blurred vision and muscle weakness, I would personally consider that fair.

When it comes to SSRI antidepressants, the effects can be scary. There are a lot of symptoms that are being linked with these types of drugs.
It has been found that SSRIs cause two significant side effects: increased thoughts of suicide, and complications for those with pre-existing heart conditions. Furthermore, taking SSRIs while you are pregnant can also cause your unborn baby to suffer adverse side effects.

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.

have been researching for months and reading reviews for each pharmacy and finally decided to take the plunge and order from one. After coming to the conclusion http://goo.gl/bLFWQG seemed the most safest and had the best feedback I ordered my pills. Was very apprehensive at first due to cc fraud, ell and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase againspam and being generally ripped off (have not received one spam email and no cc fraud) order process and checkout was simple.
placed my order on my debit card and was charged straight away and received confirmation email immediately. choose the speedy del trackable and was advised del would be 7-9 days and order was placed on the 08/01. was just about to email them today to chase up as now 15 days but behold package had been posted through my door. packaging seems as shown on webiste. apart from small delay on advertised shipping time i have been generally please with the pharmacy.
wont be taking the pills for another few weeks yet but all going well and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase again from them.
