In Medication Madness
Peter R. Breggin, M.D., describes how people taking
psychiatric medication can experience abnormal behavioral
reactions, including suicide, violence, emotional
breakdowns, and criminal acts. Dr. Breggin explains his
concept of “medication spellbinding”: individuals taking
psychiatric drugs may have no idea whatsoever that their
mental conditions are deteriorating and that their actions
are no longer under control. He proves his argument by
documenting dozens of cases from his practice and his
consultations in legal cases.
Reading like a
thriller, the book also examines how the FDA, the
pharmaceutical industry, and the medical establishment
continue to oversell the value of these drugs, and he
provides information on how to safely stop taking
psychiatric medications. Medication Madness
compelling and frightening read as well as a cautionary tale
about our reliance on medicine to fix what ails us.
