Our expert says:
Conditions like bi-polar disease, as well as depression etc., are mood disorders caused by a lack of certain hormones in the brain. It is treated like any other disease with psycho therapy and medication. The medication is very important and a product like Fluoxetine will not put you on an unnatural high. These drugs prescribed in the correct dose and for the correct diagnosis are not habit forming but treatment for the condition.

It is irresponsible not to treat a person with a mood disorder with the correct medication, as there is a biological cause for the mood disorder.
