Behavior Complexity and Brain Chemistry
Each year, millions of people are prescribed medications to treat anxiety and depression. Some researchers estimate that a large percentage of these individuals do not suffer from a true “chemical imbalance,” but seek these drugs just because they want to feel different than normal. As a result, these researchers believe antidepressant and anti-anxiety drugs are over-prescribed. Given what you know about the enormous complexities of behavior and brain chemistry, state your opinion on this matter.
