Prozac Backlash by Joseph Glenmullen
Book DescriptionRoughly 28 million Americans, one in every ten, have taken Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil or a similar antidepressant, yet very few patients are aware of the dangers of these drugs, nor are they aware that better, safer alternatives exist. Now Harvard Medical School's Dr. Joseph Glenmullen documents the ominous long-term side effects associated with these and other serotonin-boosting medications. These side effects can include neurological disorders, such as disfiguring facial and whole-body tics that can indicate brain damage; sexual dysfunction in up to 60% of users; debilitating withdrawal symptoms, including visual hallucinations, electric shock-like sensations in the brain, dizziness, nausea and anxiety; and a decrease of antidepressant effectiveness in about 35% of long term users. In addition, Dr. Glenmullen's research and riveting case studies shed shocking new light on the direct link between these drugs and suicide and violence. Written by a doctor with impeccable credentials, PROZAC BACKLASH is filled with compelling, sometimes heartrending stories and is thoroughly documented with extensive scientific sources. It is both provocative and hopeful, a sound reliable guide to the safe treatment of depression and other psychiatric problems.
