Anatomy of an Epidemic: Magic Bullets, Psychiatric Drugs, and the Astonishing Rise of Mental Illness in America characters ´ 107 F children and adults swept up in this epidemic As Anatomy of an Epidemic reveals other societies have begun to alter their use of psychiatric medications and are now reporting much improved outcomesso why cant such change happen here in the United StatesWhy have the results from these long term studiesall of which point to the same startling conclusionbeen kept from the public Our nation has been hit by an epidemic of disabling mental illness and yet as Anatomy of an Epidemic reveals the medical blueprints for curbing that epid. If you or someone you care about are taking antidepressant drugs you really REALLY should read this book The book analyses the reasons why there has been an enormous increase in long term disability from mental illness in the USA in the last 30 years despite the advent of psychoactive drugs which are supposed to cure the chemical imbalances in the brain underlying depression and psychosisWhat is so powerful is that the tone of the book is dispassionate the author does not lecture but simply lets the actual published research data tell the story and the story is a shocking one He provides overwhelming evidence that antidepressants and antipsychotic drugs although they may help in the short term do serious and sometimes irreversible harm in the long term For example long term use of antipsychotic drugs causes shrinkage and atrophy of the frontal lobes in man leading to severe cognitive impairment This is not seen in unmedicated patients or patients who have only taken the drugs for a short time This evidence of severe long term damage is actively hidden from the general public by the pharmaceutical companies who have made billions of pounds profit from these drugs and wish these profits to continue Of all the disturbing facts discussed in the book perhaps the most concerning is the rise in psychoactive medication of childrenIn Europe psychiatrists are becoming aware of the long term damage done by psychoactive drugs and it is encouraging that in the uk Finland and other countries forms of non drug therapy are being successfully applied However in the USA the grip of the psychiatric establishment and the profit motive is so strong that non drug therapies have been suppressed or dismissed as ineffective I wish that a copy of this book could be given to every medical student contemplating a psychiatric speciality it seems that only by educating the new young doctors will the prescribing of these dangerous drugs be curtailed
