In regard to treating emotional distress, there are undoubtedly situations where medication is necessary but I have also seen times when medication is harmful.  I have a friend who is attacked violently by her husband.  Instead of leaving him, she takes tranquilizers so she won't be afraid.  In this particular case fear is good.  Fear might save her life.  The tranquilizer by getting her to stay with him endangers her life.
