There are a ton of people currently taking prescription medications. Drugs are one of the main tools that western(allopathic) doctors use to treat disease. One thing that is not commonly talked about with your doctor is how and/or when will I be able to stop taking this medication. (Unless it is clearly meant for short term use such as an antibiotic.)
Whether or not someone is able to get off medication is directly linked to their state of health. An individuals state of health can be improved by addressing the source of the problem rather than just putting a band aid on it.
