The Anti-Depressant Fact Book: What Your Doctor Won't Tell You

by Peter R. Breggin (Author)

Book Description
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.
