I think drugs for treating depression are only pills that leads you to a profound dream but actually they don't deserve to be called anti stress medication since they don't cure this psychiatric disease for good. The war on drugs and the abuse is still in the spotlight of public attention, by the way that reminds me that it's time for my dose of Viagra Online.
