Penny Arcade and Drugs

This is kind of fantastic, and if you are curious about depression, worth watching. It also features Gabe and Tycho from Penny Arcade for the geeks out there.

Finally watched this whole series. Interesting look into their lives. I think there is a good and necessary call for some destygmatization of brain drugs. It's a shame that so many people consider it a failure or a weakness to need drugs, or are resistant for no reason.

That said, I'm not sure how I feel about blanket recommendations like "it worked for me..." "you should try..." We are a highly medicated society and too many people take it on themselves to diagnose their problem and then go to a doctor demanding a prescription. Drug advertisements on TV frequently make me queasy because they are blatantly "selling" something which should really be up to a doctor to prescribe.
