Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Known as "the Ralph Nader of psychiatry," Dr. Peter Breggin has been the medical expert in countless court cases involving the use or misuse of psychoactive medications. This unusual position has given him unprecedented access to private pharmaceutical research and correspondence files, information from which informs this straight-talking guide to the most prescribed and controversial category of American drugs: antidepressants. From how these drugs work in the brain to how they treat (or don't treat) depression and obsessive-compulsive, panic, and other disorders; from the documented side and withdrawal effects to what every parent needs to know about antidepressants and teenagers, The Anti-Depressant Fact Book is up-to-the minute and easy-to-access. Hard-hitting and enlightening, every current, former, and prospective antidepressant-user will want to read this book.

Book News Annotation:

Breggin, a psychiatrist for 30 years and director of the Center for Study of Psychiatry and Psychology, discusses the meaning of depression and the many and various impacts on the brain of SSRI antidepressants, including, of course their dangers and the bad effects they have on some people, and the difficulties of withdrawal. He also talks about erroneous public perceptions of the drug approval process, and the deceptions of the drug industry; and he gives suggestions for patients and therapists regarding overcoming depression without reliance on drugs.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
