Very simple

Sure, it's just the newspost for a webcomic (a webcomic you should be reading, I'll add), but Jeph Jacques has the most pithy and accurate summation of psychiatric medicine up today. The really good bit:

While I don't believe that medication is always the right treatment for everybody (therapy is definitely a better long-term solution assuming you can find/afford a good therapist), I would like to express my solidarity with all you other folks out there who are on tha pillz. If they're helping, stay on them. If they're fucking you up worse, get off them and seek different treatment. If you're considering medication or it's been recommended to you by a professional, it's a good idea to do some research before you make your decision. Above all, keep in mind there ain't no shame in trying to stay sane.
