Prescribed drug dependence needs to be recognised

I was prescribed antidepressants at age 15, and after trying them all, ended up on 300 mg of Effexor, which was still not effective. Going off has been brutal, even slowly over 8 months and with naturopathic support. These drugs should never ever ever be prescribed and the pharmaceuticals should pay out the nose for our addiction recovery and the lost wages, lost days, lost years, that we've been dizzy, nauseous, shaking, crying, etc.
