Are we a Prozac nation?

"I think there are many different reasons as to why our nation needs prescriptions for depression medications more than any other nation."

Many, many times I have read that we are a Prozac nation. People claim that everyone from children to grandparents is either on Prozac or in need of it. This may be true- I know several people who love their Prozac and claim it gets them through day to day life. But the question is this- why are we a Prozac nation?

I think there are many different reasons as to why our nation needs prescriptions for depression medications more than any other nation. For one- look at our economy right now. Our economy alone is enough to make even the happiest of people depressed. They say the economy has gotten better, but honestly, people are still working jobs that don’t allow them to afford the things they need in life other than the basics. If they even have a job at all.

Many parents need Prozac because look at the generation these days. Kids are on drugs, getting arrested, stealing and having intimate relations as young as 12 years old. Children are more out of control than they have ever been in the past, causing an increase in medication doses and parents obtaining grey hair much sooner than ever before.

If that were not enough, adultery is a common epidemic these days, almost every child is raised in a broken home and you pretty much cannot walk down the street alone without the fear of being robbed or killed. The world isn’t the same place as it was in the past and I feel our nation much deserves the Prozac it’s prescribed.
