Dr. Breggin’s two most recent books are the best source of overall information about his views and cover a wide variety of subjects:

Medication Madness (2008) vividly portrays dozens of real-life case histories of people driven toward mayhem, murder and suicide by psychiatric drugs. The theme of medication spellbinding is intertwined with each of the stories. The book concludes with guidelines for living drug-free. After writing books for more than forty years, Dr. Breggin believes that Medication Madness is by far his most interesting, well-written and exciting book.


Brain-Disabling Treatments in Psychiatry (2008) is the the most complete presentation of Dr. Breggin’s comprehensive and detailed scientific views with analyses of many topics including:

  • Medication spellbinding
  • Adverse drug effects caused by every type of psychiatric drug
  • Adverse effects of ECT
  • ADHD and the drugging of children
  • The failure of the FDA
  • Drug company negligence
  • How to more safely withdraw from psychiatric drugs
  • Alternative psychosocial approaches
  • Guidelines for effective psychotherapy


These two books, Medication Madness and Brain-Disabling Treatments in Psychiatry, complement each other and together make the most complete presentation of Dr. Breggin’s critical work concerning biological psychiatry and better psychosocial alternatives.
