Sometimes the drugs just don't work. I have tried conventional medicine and have placed my trust in 'evidence based medicine.' However, in the short term, the side effects ended up being far worse than the actual symptoms of the illness! Aetiology of illness is unknown so the drug treatment is definitely not a choice for long term use either. My conclusion is drug treatment can be alot less effective than placebo and can even cause harm for an individual. If homeopathy is as effective as placebo then I think that's actually a good start! Let the patients decide, it's our NHS afterall.
