A real eye opener,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Emperor's New Drugs: Exploding the Antidepressant Myth (Paperback)
An intriguing thought provoking book. Speaking as someone suffering from Bi Polarity, it was a long time, and many different drugs ago that I became convinced that Psycho Pharmaceuticals did absolutely no good for my condition. I have tried most of the prescrition drugs believe me. I had at some point bought into the chemical imbalance myth but having read the basis for the existence of that idea I am no longer even convinced by that now.
So is the hypothesis of this book sound - at the end of the day you can eiither buy into it, ignore or go out and do the Meta-analysis yourself. It's just refreshing having somebody pushing something other than chemicals down your neck.
My recommendation is read it and make up your own mind.
Pro's: it's excellent, with compelling argumenents abnd worrying stories about the giant Pharma Industries...
Con's: To be fair it beats taking sleeping tablets to get you off to sleep .....
