About this book

When the original edition of Prozac and the New Antidepressants was published just three years ago, more than eleven million people were taking Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, and the other "new antidepressants" -- amid a swirling national debate about their effectiveness, their dangers, and their societal implications. Today the number is estimated to have almost doubled, and the number of new drugs being used to treat depression has also increased significantly. But what do most of these people really know about these so called miracle drugs? In this practical and user-friendly guide, Harvard Medical School professor William Appleton answers all the important basic questions, including: -- How do I know if I need to take an antidepressant?-- What are the various side effects?-- Which antidepressant is right for me?-- How will it affect my personality?-- What can I do if none of the drugs can help me?This completely revised and updated edition examines current trends in the ongoing debate about antidepressants, including a discussion of the herbal remedy St. John's Wort and up-to-the-minute information on all the latest medications being used to treat depression.

Reader's Thoughts


I no longer own this. I got the information out of it that I needed and passed it on to someone else. It was good information but since it's from 2001 it doesn't have much about the new antidepressants NOW!
