No science. no medical model. no evidence based medicine. no test for chemical imbalance to which it admitted lying in 2007. no imaging device to determine abnormal thoughts. The industry is based on hearsay and is political and represents a treat to the health, safety and welfare of the society.

I have ordered 2 times from this website PILLSMEDSHOP. COM . I called yesterday the customer care and asked for a discount as i was about to order twice the regular amount.

I've been on Effexor from 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.
