Inhaltsangabe: Nearly 20 million people take antidepressants and use is increasing by 10 percent a year.
Have antidepressants really been proven to be effective?
Has the prevalence of depression decreased since these "effective treatments" have been discovered? It should have, shouldn't it?
Why is depression increasingly viewed as a chronic condition requiring life long treatment, when we now have "effective treatment" for it?
Does a prescription for antidepressants mean that a doctor is doing their job?
Author Jeffrey Wilson draws upon his personal 23 year experience taking psychiatric drugs and his knowledge of the pharmaceutical industry to expose a medical model of treatment that is dangerous and out of control. Irrational Medicine shows how doctors ignored various causes for his depression and prescribed drug after drug to "cure" him. Eventually the side effects of the drugs caused him to be diagnosed with ADD and Bipolar Disorder. He then discovered the truth about psychiatric drugs and found a way to get out of his pharmaceutical coma through alternative healing methods.
Irrational Medicine puts the spotlight on a drug crisis that is still in the making - the control and consumption of mood-regulating drugs, such as Prozac and other antidepressants and a much wider problem - continuing human dependence on corporate and professional power. This is a unique and penetrating look into the true effectiveness of psychiatric drugs.
Jeffrey Wilson is a story teller with a voice that doesn’t get out of your head. It will make you cry and keep you turning the pages.
This book combines the elements of memoir, psychology and self help to provide a road map to emotional healing. It is a story of hope with the message that depression is not a disease like the drug companies want us to believe. We are not helpless and we can live a normal and happy life.
Über den Autor: Jeffrey Wilson is a survivor of 23 years of psychiatric drug treatment, a former pharmaceutical industry executive and author of Irrational Medicine: The Antidepressant Crisis And How To Avoid Unnecessary Behavioral Drugs. His writing comes directly from personal experience and deep research.
