It seems like every day I am forced to sit and watch people around me - sometimes family, sometimes friends, sometimes complete strangers - suffer unnecessarily, while a treatment might be easily available. Please allow me to illustrate some examples.
Father (deceased): cancer and all typical associated symptoms.
Mother: depression, nicotine addiction.
Grandmother A: chronic depression.
Grandmother B: chronic pain, high blood pressure.
Aunt: cluster headaches.
Right now I could think of perhaps twenty different drugs which could potentially assist with these conditions, some of the most effective being the most strictly prohibited.
Grandmother A nearly died during Christmas 2008 from encephalitis caused by a cocktail of medicines which were prescribed by some moron of a doctor. Had it not been for myself and my brother, who recognised her prescription combinations and symptoms as being potentially life-threatening, she would be dead, but thankfully survived.
I am not a doctor, but to the layman I have a fairly impressive knowledge of drugs and their pharmacologies. Instead of dismissing suggestions due to legal status, I would prefer if people could take a look at reality for just one second and realise that the demon drugs they are so appalled by could very well improve their quality of life dramatically.
Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world.
