> > Has anyone ever read this book? Some seriously convincing arguments against medication. I'd love to hear from anyone who'd like to comment on the book (hopefully only those who have read the book; I already know what the pro medicine camp has to say about taking medicine).
> I read the book. The author undoubtedly believes all this stuff but he's got a real "attitude". I find much of his analysis biased toward his preconceived conclusion. I also doubt he has ever been depressed. I started the book about two weeks after starting prozac, which was the first AD I had ever taken. Thinking about how much better I felt (astonishingly--beyond my wildest expectations) and reading about this "toxic psychiatry" stuff made me think this guy's way off the mark.

I had much the same opinion after reading it as Andy. It seems to be just a greedy attempt to exploit other's fears and sell books by pointing out every terrible side effect occurrence, and using that as an argument that these meds should not be used. Using Breggin's logic, aspirin would have been banned long, long ago. I recommend reading, and rereading the outstanding book he "attempts" to refute(by p. kramer).
