I was prescribed the same drugs for about 15 years.
I first lived in Denton, Manchester, where I was first prescribed these drugs. Largely pain killers and a low strength sleeping pill. I moved to Urmston where I continued on the same drugs. I was contented and quite happy.
Then I returned to Denton to the same practice, this time they told me that everything I have been taking for 15 years is doing me no good. They told me antidepressants and more pain killers is the way to go. I have never felt so bad, the worse I felt the stronger the antidepressants they gave me, I was becoming a drug junky and a pain killer addict.
All the drugs they were pouring down me surely had a bigger risk of affecting my internal organs and I don't know about antidepressants, I was feeling depressed! I am 67, if I am happy taking a sleeping pill I should be allowed to. If I carry on like this I will be going to sleep for a lot longer than one night!
