Use of medication in the treatment of mental illness is something I feel ambivalent about. For some people it’s incredibly important to take it, and it’s integral to the management of their illness. My personal experience is that trying med after med and it having little or no effect means it’s better to be off them. No pill I ever took lifted my mood, stopped me panicking and gave the day even a small bit of meaning like having a dog has done, so yep, I think pets should be included in prescriptions.
