This is one of the best books I've read on this subject. If you pay any attention to news reports and TV ads for these pills, you know something is radically wrong with our system. Latest account of a new drug for pain, recently approved by the FDA against doctors wishes, one has to wonder why the FDA is not being investigated. Kelly O'Meara has sounded the alarm, but is anyone listening??

With all the news about gun control fading quickly, it becomes imperative to take a look at the use of psychotropic drugs being prescribed for the care of mental health. No book I have read in over a decade has caught my attention like Psyched Out. It is extremely well documented and not one you will easily put down to read later. I have known people who have had disastrous endings due to the use of drugs prescribed to them by well meaning mental health professionals. This book explains why those pills do not work. If you don't read any other book on the subject, this is a must. It's a true reality check. This is not another book on addiction. It's the story of the development and uselessness of these drugs.

Like the child who says "But the emperor does not have any clothes on", the author states that there is harm in overmedicating, making undocumented claims about effectiveness, and the overwhelming increase in diagnois and psychpharmacological treatment. People need to be informed. THere is no magic bullet.
