Overview

One in four women will experience clinical depression, anxiety, or premenstrual depression in her lifetime. The good news is that popular new prescription drugs like  Prozac and Xanax bring much needed relief. The bad news is that many physicians and therapists are unaware of common issues for women. As medical treatment for depression and anxiety has become simpler, more and more general practitioners are prescribing antidepressants, often with little background in the nonmedical alternatives or complex mind-body interactions.

Emphasizing women's family roles as well as their unique biological/hormonal sensitivities, Dr. Raskin explains contemporary integrated treatment options. Raskin pays special attention to how birth control, menstrual cycles, childbearing, and menopause impact treatment choices. Raskin empowers women to take an active approach in dealing with common side effects, including weight gain and diminished sexual responsiveness. Using revealing case studies, Raskin offers a wealth of hands-on advice.

At a time when trends in health care have led to less personalized contact between doctor and patient, When Words Are Not Enough provides the facts and reassurance women need to be in control of their own health.

"...a sensitive approach about how a number of social, medical, and biological factors affect women and what treatments can help alleviate depression and anxiety."

Talk therapy is often enhanced when combined with antidepressant and antianxiety medications and mood stabilizers, says Raskin, a Chicago psychiatrist who specializes in women's psychopharmacology. Her guidebook details the many treatment options now available for women with anxiety and depressive disorders. Raskin (This Isn't What I Expected: Overcoming Postpartum Depression) first explains in nontechnical language the various causes of these disorders, their common symptoms, how diagnoses are made and how various medication works. In the more extensive Part Two, she discusses how psychotherapeutic medications may affect women's bodies during menstruation, pregnancy and breast-feeding, and advises on such side effects as weight gain and diminished sex drive, concerns that women may hesitate to bring up with their physicians. Getting women to talk openly to their doctors and to ask the right questions is clearly one of Raskin's aims. Her bibliography includes a section of professional readings, which she suggests women share with their doctors. Appendices provide handy summaries of information on numerous psychotherapeutic drugs, making this a useful reference for both women patients and their doctors. (June)

    changed my life

    I first heard of this book from a program on 'the People's Pharmacy' radio program several years ago. So much of what the author said spoke to me and wanting to know more I bought the book that same day. After reading this well written and researched volume, my life made so much more sense. It was as if doors were opened and I could now walk into the sunshine to a better understanding of myself and, most importantly, what I could do to help myslf. Since then I have bought this book and given it to several of my friends. All of whom have thanked me for sharing with them the existence of this book which has made such a diference in my life. It was so nice to realize I wasn't crazy afterall. Today I directed another friend to this same book. Although there have been many advancements in the pharmacology, the essential truths within this book have not changed and are as relevant today as they were years ago.
