Take Prozac, or Fluoxetine, or Wellbrutin, or Ketamine, or whatever other pill and potion we can throw at you to make money!….and oh by the way, you’ll have to take these pills every day for the rest of your life, and they have side effects, so you know what? You’ll have to take a bunch of other pills every day of your life to combat them!”
