It's no wonder. I moved recently, and found a new doctor. Within *2 minutes* of sitting down to talk to him about my insomnia he had prescribed Zoloft for me. No medical history overview, nothing.

I had never had heartburn before, let alone acid burning my throat and lungs, but suddenly I was getting these symptoms. I went back to him, and he prescribed Nexium for my stomach, since Zoloft couldn't be the culprit.

I immediately stopped the Zoloft and haven't had a repeat since. I've also returned to my old doctor. So I have to commute now, at least he doesn't prescribe pills without getting to the root of a problem first.
