I have not really been involved with meditation, nor do I know a lot about it, but I fully agree that ADs and other related drugs are highly overprescribed, and the underlying "disorders" are highly over diagnosed.
I think even those of us who experienced extreme trauma in life need to take every possible measure to learn to deal with it, without drugs.
I am appalled by the number of drugs that are always pushed on TV adversting every day. They always say "Ask your doctor if XYZ might benefit you."
What a way to legally push drugs. There is just something wrong with the picture, IMO.
And then the same ads are often followed by another one, asking if you had this or that bad outcome from taking such and such a drug, call this law office to see if they can get money for you! I suspect there will be plenty of lawsuits from the same drugs people are happily taking right now, within the next ten or 20 years. They don't really know what these drugs do to you. It is quite possible the long term effects are worse than the seemingly positive short term effects.
