When the original edition of Prozac and the New Antidepressants was published just three yearsago, more than eleven million people were taking Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, and the other "newantidepressants"-amid a swirling national debate about their effectiveness, their dangers, and theirsocietal implications. Today the number is estimated to have almost doubled, and the number ofnew drugs being used to treat depression has also increased significantly. But what do most ofthese people really know about these so-called miracle drugs? In this practical and user-friendlyguide, Harvard Medical School professor William Appleton answers all the important basicquestions, including:
This "little" book (it can be read in a few hours yet consulted as a comprehensive reference tool) isthe one own if you must limit yourself to one (and given the abundance of material in print andon-line, it may be wise to have just one reliable resource). It provides user-friendly yet responsibleinformation about all of the SSRI's (Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil) as well as the drugs that preceded them(tricyclics, benzodiazapines) and the more recent antidepressants (Effexor, Remeron, Celexa).
Appleton looks at many promising drugs awaiting approval as well as the vast number of toutedherbal remedies. The author has no agenda. He provides balanced information about thepercentage of consumers who are likely to be helped and to what degree. He also suggests 2 and3-step drug programs for individuals who are "treatment-resistant." Best of all, the author combinesappreciation for the medical efficacy of certain drugs with healthy skepticism and an experiencedprofessional's common-sense.
As a support person for a clinically depressed person, this book provides a wealth of up-to-dateinformation that assists in guiding the reader through the maze, and often complicated world, ofpsychopharmacology. What makes this book so useful is Dr. Appleton's combination of the review ofresearch with his own clinical judgment. In addition, the book is one of the few that I have found that
reviews psychopharmacological drugs with options for other treatments if drugs (which don't helpapporximately twenty percent of patients who take them) don't work. The book is easy to read withboth technical information and "translations" for the lay person.
This is the most reader-friendly, reliable, balanced overview of the field of pyschoactive drugs thatI've been able to lay my hands on. Having been overwhelmed by the technical and profuselanguage of the PDR and Merck Manuals, and having been misled by the many popular books thattout Prozac and its many descendents as surefire "happy" pills, it's refreshing and reassuring to finda book this clear and discriminating. Use it as a reference book as well as an introductory text to theentire field (it can be read in several hours). Those who require the "placebo" effect of an unqualifiedendorsement of these drugs may wish to avoid the book. On the other hand, those who havediscovered that Prozac is not necessarily any more effective than tryciclics or who have experiencednegative reactions from an SSRI, will certainly appreciate this author's warnings and disclaimersalong with the encouraging but candid claims about how much a drug might actually contribute towell-being. Let the drug companies provide the hype; Appleton simply provides clear and accurateinformation (his is one of the few books, for example, to point out the dangers of combining Ultramwith an antidepressant).
The book is not very long but offers just the right amount of information and makes for easy readingwithout all the technical jargon. It gives a very informative background on the various newantidepressants and is a must read for those already on antidepressants who are curious or haveconcerns about what they are currently taking. What I liked most were the comparisons of thevarious kinds of new antidepressants as well as the side effects known to each.
Dr. Appleton has never taken any money from a drug company and so he is able to write acompletely honest book. He understands what depression is and how it can harm your life and heoffers a realistic and TRUSTWORTHY view of the drugs. Anyone considering taking anantidepressant or caring for a depressed friend or relative should consider this book requiredreading. It's written so clearly, while grounded in careful research, that it is easy to understand andmakes the decision to use a drug (or try a different one) simple and less fearful. I have bought manycopies for friends who agree.
I'm quite surprised by the last review. I wonder if it was even intended for this book. Dr. Appleton iscertianly not against drug therapies-he's for well-informed patients. His book is reassuring. Itanswers all the questions you wish your doctor had the time to respond to. It makes sense of theconfusing variety of antidepressants available. I would highly recommend this book as an invaluableresource for anyone who is depressed or who is caring for a depressed family member or friend.
I recommend in my own book that every patient, as well as supporter, needs to become educatedabout their brain disorder - depression or bipolar disorder. This book is extremely helpful in teachingpeople about the medications used to treat these disorders. It is easy-to-understand, yet verythorough - this is not an intimidating book to read.
As a person who suffers from depression and has found anti-depressents to only partially work, Ifound this book to be excellent. The author is neither strongly pro-drug nor strongly anti-drug.
Instead, he points out (from both scientific studies and professional experience as a psychiatrist),that sometimes things work and sometimes they don't. But he also covers side effects, druginteractions, and possible reasons why a drug might not be effective for a particular case. If you arelooking for an honest, informed, professional opinion, backed up by experience and an objectivereview of the evidence, then this book is for you. If you are looking for the one best answer, or for ananti-drug tirade, or for a pro-drug solution, then skip this book because you will not be happy withthis book's honesty.

Appleton offers a cutting-edge look at the current crop of antidepressants. However, this isn't just arecitation of facts, but also Appleton offering his own views about the state of medication in oursociety. I only share some of his views. It's worth checking out to see if you agree with him. Alsoworth checking out if you're considering taking an antidepressant and want to get a feel for what'savailable.
If you're looking to 'compare & contrast' antidepressants, this is the book for you.

I particularly appreciated theinformation given on side-effects.
