In fairness to doctors most are conscientious and doing their best to help you with medical problems. They are human and they face four main forces that prevent them from doing their best. Number one is the way they are paid by Medicare and Medicaid, which ties their hands on what they can and can't prescribe. The insurance industry is another major player that determines prices and who can receive what treatment. An overwhelming one is the pharmaceutical industry that needs to make a big profit on drugs due to the normous expenses of research and costs of bringing a drug to the market.They pressure and court doctors into believing the drug is the next big answer. Finally, and one that you can do the most about is - the public, the users of drugs. You also believe the ads that make it seem like a certain drug is THE answer to your medical problems. Even if the doctor wants you  to try a less dangerous route you want immediate pain relief or want a drug that promises a cure. Dr. Neel will discuss some of the main reasons NOT to take certain classes of drugs whose side effects may be triggfering a disease or harmful effects on your body and mind. Also, how one prescription can lead to side effects that cause the doctor to prescribe other meds, which leads to a cascade of unwanted and new problems as drug interactions is a HUGE problem and doctors are not trained to be pharmacists. Dr.Neel will help you make better decisions as he IS trained to discuss these iisues.
