Overview

According to one recent bestseller, roughly twenty-eight million Americans-one in every ten-have taken Prozac, Zoloft, or Paxil or any one of a host of similar "modern" antidepressants, yet very few are aware of the controversies that surround them, and fewer still are aware of extreme side effects that can affect a small percentage of patients, especially adolescent ones. Unfortunately, when Americans do hear about such reactions, it's often in the midst of sensationalized stories, half-truths, and purposeful misrepresentations of the facts.

Brooke Shields, Tom Cruise, Kirstie Alley, and Drew Barrymore are just a few of the celebrities who have jumped into this discussion. It seems that everyone has an opinion these days, but opinions are not necessarily truth. This book helps clarify the facts concerning antidepressants and, in so doing, answer the question, "Are antidepressants the curealls many believe they are-or unnatural poisons killing innocent victims?" Antidepressants and the Critics will help you decide for yourself.
