There are a wide variety of medications being used these days for the astonishing range of mental health issues. We are lucky to live in an age where there are options. History books don't often address the issue, but until recently most severely mentally ill people were subjected to horrific treatments and living conditions. The stories are chilling.
If you, or someone you care about, has been prescribed a medication for any reason, it's good to carry that information with you in case of emergency. It's very frustrating for the emergency room personnel when someone says, "I take a pale yellow pill twice a day."
