GENERAL
Since there is no scientific evidence for the diagnosis of "chemical imbalance" which is used to justify the prescription of many psychotropic drugs, I strongly disagree with their being so widely advertised and utilized, often by medical practitioners who are seduced by drug companies and their free samples. This widespread practice is a disservice to their patients and the public in general, in light of the fact that more and more negative side effects are being observed. These drugs should be STRONGLY regulated, or banned altogether.
