A Factor is Missing Here: Off-label use of antidepressants

My mother in law was perscribed an antidepressent (low dose) for fibromyalgia. She is a deeply religious person and also had trust in her doctor. After realizing that it was the aspartame causing her fibromyagia, she is much better in that department. She also was perscribed an antidepressant for a foot neuropathy, which she didn't take long for the side effects.

The issue here is not faith in God, but a blind faith in doctors that is undeserved. They'll put you on an antidepressant for just about anything now and then do a snow job telling you that it won't affect your mental state in the least.

I'd say the people in the states you mention are more trusting types.
