I am not on medication and have never been. But I did go to verbal therapy for 8 years ending in 2001. I found it long but mostly useful.

Before I used to think that therapy was for when you had some problems career wise or relationship wise. And medication was for people who were really messed up. But now more and more I hear of friends who are on medication. It seems that medication is the new therapy. That there are many choices and that they work. That the stigma is gone. I wonder if there are reliable numbers of what percentage of the population of the EU, or USA are on medication on a regular basis.

Hi Martin,

I worked on a pharmacy in Spain for nine years. The most sold item every month was of course Aspirine. But this one did not need presciption.

The 2nd most sold item was Orfidal (lorazepam, an ansiolitic) eventhough they needed prescription to be dispatched, and believe me we did not give it away without it.

It is amazing how medicated society is. Another day we can talk about antibiotics.
