Today, medications are still being used to treat mental issues in patients all over the world and the use of these medications is dramatically increasing.

That evening I also realised that there was no-one to blame for this, it was simply a case of two men full of, no, past rage who had lost all civilised order and had reverted to primeval fighting for 'territory'.VIEW DOCUMENT
