How to use medicate in a sentence?

  1. Cynthia Fontanella:

    Mood stabilizers and psychotic medications can cause weight gain, say up to 30 or 40 pounds... stiffness of their neck or eyes... and it can cause sedation, so, they may not use their medication and may self-medicate with cannabis to treat the mood disorders.

  2. Bhava Ram:

    When you’re a former type-A male, you don’t want to admit that you’re depressed, that anything’s wrong, which is one reason you medicate more to get away from the reality of your circumstance, you certainly don’t want to show any weakness— that’s one of the obstacles to healing, the inability to really face who you are and what happened.

  3. Rachel Erwin:

    We’ve taken the clinical part out of it, i think medicine can be useful if someone is in an acute state, and I think there’s a place for that. The problem is ultimately if you don’t get into those various things that have gotten stuck in someone, like a state of fear or anxiety or depression, and if you don’t get into that physiological part of a person and [you do] medicate it, you’re freezing the part of the person.

  4. Kamala Harris:

    People with PTSD tend to act out. They tend to self-medicate. Which means they're going to be on drugs or they may be an alcoholic. And then they're going to get into fights and they have a really short fuse. And guess what happens ? All of a sudden you don't qualify for VA. That's wrong because again we are not taking into account the way we have designed or enforcing the system the realities of that person's life. It's backwards !
