Brain-Disabling Treatments in Psychiatry

Drugs, Electroshock, and the Psychopharmaceutical Complex, Second Edition

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

In Brain Disabling Treatments in Psychiatry, renowned psychiatrist Peter R. Breggin, M.D., presents startling scientific research on the dangerous behavioral abnormalities and brain dysfunctions produced by the most widely used and newest psychiatric drugs such as Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, Cymbalta, Effexor, Xanax, Ativan, Ritalin, Adderall, Concerta, Strattera, Risperdal, Zyprexa, Geodon, Abilify, lithium and Depakote.

Many of Breggin's earlier findings have improved clinical practice, led to legal victories against drug companies, and resulted in FDA-mandated changes in what the manufacturers must admit about their drugs. Yet reliance on these drugs has continued to escalate in the last decade, and drug company interests have overwhelmed psychiatric practice.

This greatly expanded second edition, supported by the latest evidence-based research, shows that psychiatric drugs achieve their primary or essential effect by causing brain dysfunction, and that they tend to do far more harm than good.

New scientific analyses in this completely updated edition include:

Chapters covering every new antidepressant and stimulant drug
Twenty new guidelines for how to conduct non-drug therapy
A chapter describing how to safely withdraw from psychiatric drugs
A discussion of "medication spellbinding," explaining how patients fail to appreciate their drug-induced mental dysfunctions
Documentation of how the drug companies control research and the flow of information about psychiatric treatments
