I have been in the mental health field since 1972, BA in Psychology, MA in Counseling, I was trained as an anlyst by the army. The in all this time I have "never" seen the first person cured with medication. The best description that a patient has given to me was, "I was on the medication for five years, and I was soul dead during that time, I did not grow" The idea that these substances fix a chemical imbalance is not substanciated by science, but is a hype of the pharmical industry. The FDA should not sell out to the drug industry.
