Brain-disabling Treatments in Psychiatry Drugs, Electroshock and the Psychopharmaceutical Complex 2nd Edition

£55.00

Product description

An excellent copy of this hard cover book (no dust jacket) with no internal markings or annotations and no damage to the cover

Renowned psychologist Peter Breggin documents how psychiatric drugs and electroshock disable the brain. He presents the latest scientific information on potential brain dysfunction and dangerous behavioural abnormalities produced by the most widely used drugs including Prozac, Xanax, Halcion, Ritalin, and lithium.For this edition of the book, the concept of brain-disabling treatment has been updated and expanded with the additional concept of medication spellbinding (intoxication anosognosia). The neuroleptic chapters have been updated to include much more material on the newer, atypical drugs, and well as new information on the neurotoxicity and cytotoxicity of all antipsychotic drugs. A massive amount of new information about antidepressant drugs and the stimulant drugs has resulted in an additional chapter on each drug.
