Re: Mental Health (ASD, Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar, etc.)

Abilify (apiprazole) is a total scam. The new drug in that family is called Rexulti (Brexpiprazole). It's probably a total scam too.

Part of the problem is that each person has unique brain chemistry, so different drugs affect different people in different ways,

I really do believe in better living through chemistry. I really, really do. But we're living in an era where beta testing is introducing a drug into the populace and doing cost/benefit analyses after the fact. The fact that the R&D arms can focus on treatment instead of cures insures a steady enough revenue stream to survive the inevitable lawsuits caused by beta testing new drugs on the populace at large. And the top folks at the FDA are certainly being compensated somehow, or we would never have gotten here.

Bad electrical storm here, so i'll have to hop off my soapbox a LOT earlier than i'd planned. See you all soon.

gift cards make great gifts both for shoppers who are lazy and/or have a lot of gifts to buy. They're also a shrewd choice if there are individuals in your life for whom it is difficult to shop. When bought through the astore, they also help support this site, which isn't self-sufficient and doesn't hold fund-raisers or any of that other crap.

Please consider doing at least some of your holiday shopping through our astore this year.

Here's a link for general help info on finding amazon goodies through the astore.:

As the old woman said when she peed in the sea, "Every little bit helps."
