141. Healy, David (2004). Let Them Eat Prozac: The Unhealthy Relationship Between the Pharmaceutical Industry and Depression (1st p/b ed). New York: New York University Press. 351 pp. Paperback octavo, very good plus condition. Prozac, Paxil, Zolofit - turn on your TV and you are likely to see a commercial for one of the many selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) on the market. Explores the history of SSRIs in the United States and the controversies that surround them. When Prozac was released in the late 1980s, Healy was among the psychiatrists who prescribed it. But he soon observed that some of his patients became agitated and even attempted suicide. Could the new wonder drug actually be making patients worse? Healy draws on his own research and expertise to demonstrate the potential hazards associated with these drugs. He intersperses case histories with insider accounts of the research leading to the development and approval of SSRIs as a treatment for depression. Clearly demonstrates that the problems go much deeper than a side-effect of a particular drug. The pharmaceutical industry would like us to believe that SSRIs can safely treat depression, anxiety, and a host of other mental problems. But the cure may be worse than the disease.
