Frequently Asked Questions about Antidepressants

by Peterson, Judy M.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Cindy Faughnan
This series discusses the frequently-asked questions about many aspects of teen life. The volume About Antidepressants defines "antidepressants" and "depression" in easy-to-understand language, using words and illustrations to show the science of how these drugs work and the warning signs of different types of depression. One chapter deals with the common types of antidepressants prescribed for teens, including their effects and side effects. In Overscheduling and Stress, common stressors such as multi-tasking and over-filling one's schedule are discussed, along with how too much stress can cause damage to one's body. Suggestions are made on how to rethink scheduling and de-stress one's life. While the suggestions are mainly common sense, it is good for teen readers to realize what they feel is real. Other volumes in the series address issues such as sleep and sleep deprivation, concussions, driving and the law, foster care, tanning and skin care, and online gaming addictions. Each book defines the topic, explains the associated dangers, what to watch for, how to control it, and how it will affect teens' lives. Included in each volume is a list of myths with facts to refute them, and a list of "Ten Great Questions to Ask" a therapist, doctor, counselor, or other specialist. Contacts for more information include addresses, phone numbers, and Web sites. The topics are current and the books are written to answer questions that teens may be unable to articulate. This is a good resource for teens struggling to understand what is happening to themselves or to their friends. Reviewer: Cindy Faughnan
