Faithful followers of our blog:
We bring you musical holiday greetings. Today’s music carries a welcome message. It appears that the concerns about psychotropic medication that many of you have been expressing now are resonating in popular culture.
The lyrics you will see and hear tell us that if you are concerned about psychotropic medications–too much, too soon, too casually dispensed–you are not alone. For us, and we hope for you, that’s a big measure of hope this holiday season.
Macklemore featuring Leon Bridges:

I’m asking you[Hook: Leon Bridges]Doctor, please, give me a dose of the American DreamPut down the pen and look in my eyesWe’re in the waiting room and something ain’t rightAll this is on you, we’re overprescribed
