Dr. Nancy Snyderman of the Today Show reported this morning on the growing number of Americans who use prescription drugs, and in many cases several prescription drugs, to treat chronic illnesses.

  • I believe what she said about everyone expecting their doctor to prescribe something is very true. People want instant relief and if the doctor doesn’t prescribe something they think he doesn’t know what he is doing.

  • I think its going to be a long time coming before there is an instant pill for any type of need that everyone seems to want now. We are not able to keep up tech. wise with all this wishful thinking. Not just yet anyways.
