Your Drug May Be Your Problem:
How and Why to Stop Taking Psychiatric Medications
by Peter Breggin M.D. and David Cohen Ph.D.
Paperback 2007 updated edition by Perseus Books
The first book to expose the shortcomings of psychiatric drugs and to guide patients and doctors through the process of withdrawing from them.
Whether the drug is a sleeping pill, tranquilizer, stimulant, antidepressant, mood stabilizer, or antipsychotic, Your Drug May Be Your Problem reveals its documented withdrawal symptoms, demonstrating what many doctors don't know, understand, or consider: withdrawal symptoms often mimic the symptoms for which a person has been medicated in the first place, a fact that frequently prompts doctors to mistakenly re-medicate their patients at even higher doses. Armed with this essential background information, readers will then be able to choose for themselves when and how to withdraw from psychiatric drugs.
Groundbreaking and empowering, Your Drug May Be Your Problem offers readers what they have long sought – a medically and psychologically sound program for freeing themselves from psychiatric drugs, emphasizing throughout the importance for patients to keep control over the withdrawal process.
