How do you feel about people being treated with drugs for mental disorders? I agree with Tom. There are other ways. People use drugs as an easy way out.

If I ever require any form of medication I would rather act upon the advice of my doctor than that of a second rate actor.

Uh-oh, I'm picking up logic in your words.
We're going to need to schedule an emergency audit and E-meter test, STAT!

I had problems with anxiety and controlling my temper, I went to my medically trained doctor, and was given medication (which I still take to this day) and anger management councilling. Not suprisingly I find I am a lot better now and have been ever since.

Tom Cruise is an overrated grinning idiot of an actor who has become a celebrity mouthpiece for a ridiculous science fiction cult.

If you hold the verbal claptrap of Tom Cruise in such high regard maybe you should sign up the the church of scientology message board ?, honestly there must literally billions of people on the planet with more interesting and productive things to say than Tom Cruise !

I have yet to fathom why anyone would be interested in the opinions of actors or musicians on topics other than acting or music.

Entertainers typically occupy the shallow end of the brain pool.

I think Tom Cruise would do well with some meds.

Whether or not to medicate is the choice of the patient/their parent and their doctor.

The idea that we shouldn't utilize existing science because people with obvious pathologies are in denial of them seems truly stupid.

If you don't know the difference between Reagan and Cruise, it goes for you too.

Tom Cruise is clearly in need of some education and medication.

It's obvious that he's unfamiliar with psychology or the methods and reasoning behind medication.

Apparently you are too if you'd agree with that nonsense.

"No such thing as a chemical imbalance."

Well Tom, I'm impressed that you've efficiently and authoritatively negated years of research by qualified professionals, yet for some reason I'm inclined to think you're an idiot.

There are many good arguments for treating psychiatry with caution. There is a kernel of truth to Mr. Cruise's opinion. But it's none of his fucking business.

Drugs are not a cure for affective disorders. What Mr. Cruise doesn't appreciate, is that drugs can treat symptoms that prevent the real cure -- a change of attitude -- from being possible.

If you want to read someone who knows what he's talking about, read some Thomas Szasz.

Comedian Robert Klein once said that Tom's reason for hating Ritalin so is that he is in such desperate need of it. I happen to agree with him. In fact, I think that Tom Cruise is in need of a frontal lobotomy. You know, just to be safe.

But what about a really good actor, say Martin Sheen or someone like that?

Heck, or even, a first-rate actor!

I still wouldn't let Gregory Peck give me medical advice, unless he can show me his credentials in either Eastern or Western methods.

Or, unless he'll include a free body massage with the treatment he plans to provide---including HIS package with THE package, so to say.

Reprobate is right, there is a kernel of truth there---because one should be careful before just popping pills and taking drugs, as those things have side effects that can be quite serious---but, it's buried underneath a wave of brainwashed silliness and silly brainlessness. Cruise is only stating this opinions because his church has told him to, and because his church has "translated" his experiences with psychiatry for him.
