    because the alternative is worse. Unmedicated people can be a burden to society, doing all kinds of illogical things.

    and messing up physically isn't always what's done. Some meds really work. The problem is that mental diseases aren't understood to the point where we can predict which meds work for which patient

    Medications have helped a lot of people with mental illnesses. There are some with nasty side effects, but that’s why drug companies keep developing new drugs to treat all sorts of conditions. There are a lot of mentally ill people that have been helped a lot by their meds.
