As long as he gets the message! He knows how to read and write,(boy does he!) but he is pushing my tolerance to reading his post beyond the point of no return. Yes, the pharmaceutical companies are in the business of making money and so are the doctors who prescribe these meds, but the patient is in full control of what medicines he takes and what research the patient does to understand these meds. You don't take a doctor at his word just because he is a doctor. This PTSD has much research to be done but it is up the vet to make an attempt to cure his own mind, the best way he knows how and that requires research into the drugs taken, what effects they will have and what the vet can do to help his own mind function. It is not easy to function in an already devastating society but the vet needs to feel like he 'belongs' and something to make him feel 'worthwhile' in this society and what the vet with this condition can contribute to this 'sick' society. That puts the vet in control, not the drug companies or the doctor!

I have used http://qgeneric.info/#bhba 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.

Very great deal and very smooth transaction. PILLSMEDSHOPdotCOM was on top of my order and shipped it within a day. Thats all that they have control over and they done it fast. It sat in customs for a little bit but they have no control over the sluggishness of how customs work.

I've been on Effexor from http://goo.gl/TRCx1y 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.

Do you really need these drugs? They can dull your senses. How can you uncover the truth when your brain is drugged up? Take a vitamin already. Maybe I don't know enough about these drugs but the mind is a terrible thing to waste?????
