Beat Depression, ADHD and Anxiety Naturally – Rodale News November 2011

One-in-five insured adults are now taking mental health drugs, mostly antidepressants, despite the fact that many people popping the pills aren't even clinically depressed. In 2010, 15 percent of men and 26 percent of women took prescription drugs for psychological or behavioral problems, according to new data released in Medco Health Solutions' "America's State of Mind" report.

"Avoid seduction by elegant molecular pharmacology; beware of selective drug trial reporting," the guidelines warn. In other words, be an old-school doc.
