Dr. Sara's Library

 

Here are some books and web resources that I have found useful. Click on a topic to see some selections from my personal library:
  • Anatomy of an Epidemic by Robert Whitaker
  • Psychotropic medications have been in existence now for over 50 years--long enough to paint a picture of what happens to people who take these medications over long periods of time, and the results are not good. While these medications do reduce symptoms in the short run, over longer periods of time treatment with antidepressants, anti anxiety medications, and even anti psychotics,  makes matters worse and substantially increases the probability of chronicity and disability. That's because these medications alter the brain's structure to compensate for the ways they block certain neurotransmitters and those alterations in the brain actually create the imbalance they are supposed to be treating. This is well documented in Robert Whitaker's book Anatomy of an Epidemic. You can listen to him discuss his findings in this YouTube interview.  A much longer, full length movie about the history of so called "mental illness" and the medicalizing of treatments for these so called "disorders" is available here.
