Medication and Mental Health
Most of these references are relevant to mental health. As with any medication, talk to your doctor, ask questions, read what the manufacturer says about it, and if you can, talk to a friend or other you know who may have used it. These sources are not always in agreement, nor is the information on the following links. Pharmacists are experts on medications, and can often tell you a lot more than what is written on the bottle. Always ask about side effects, and remember that ultimately your body is your responsibility.
