Dr. Breggin’s best overview critique of psychiatric drugs
The Journal of Contemporary Psychotherapy invited me to do an overview article about my work in the field of psychopharmacology and psychiatric drugs, including my critique of adverse drug effects (side effects). My peer-reviewed report came out in 2016 as the lead article in the January issue.
The article discusses basic principles of psychopharmacology, harmful effects of psychiatric drugs, and better alternatives. Here is a summary of the subjects covered:
I. Medication Spellbinding (intoxication anosognosia) or how psychiatric drugs often make people believe they are feeling or doing better in their lives when they are actually losing their quality of life.
II. The Brain-Disabling Principle of Psychiatric Treatment, or how psychiatric drugs have their effect by causing rather than creating biochemical imbalances, and ultimately by reducing brain function, leading to feelings of emotional anesthesia or apathy and more occasionally euphoria without an actual improvement in the quality of life.
III. Chronic Brain Impairment (CBI) or how persistent exposure to psychiatric drugs causes permanent deficits in the function of the brain and mind, and sometimes apathy or shrinkage of the brain with cell death.
IV. A Survey of Alternative Non-Drug Treatments from anxiety, depression, psychosis (“schizophrenia”) and other psychiatric diagnoses.
