~Book ♾ Anatomy of an Epidemic: Magic Bullets, Psychiatric Drugs, and the Astonishing Rise of Mental Illness in America ♷ A Modern Plague That is the essence of science ask an impertinent question, and you are on the way to a pertinent answer Jacob BronowskiThis is the story of a medical puzzle The puzzle is of a most curious sort, and yet one that we as a society desperately need to solve, for it tells of a hidden epidemic that is diminishing the lives of millions of Americans, including a rapidly increasing number of children The epidemic has grown in size and scope over the past five decades, and now disablesadults andchildren every day And those startling numbers only hint at the true scope of this modern plague, for they are only a count of those who have become so ill that their families or caregivers are newly eligible to receive a disability check from the federal governmentNow, here is the puzzleAs a society, we have come to understand that psychiatry has made great progress in treating mental illness over the past fifty years Scientists are uncovering the biological causes of mental disorders, and pharmaceutical companies have developed a number of effective medications for these conditions This story has been told in newspapers,magazines, and books, and evidence of our societal belief in it can be found in our spending habits In , we spentbillion on anti depressants and antipsychotics, and to put that figure in perspective, that wasthan the gross domestic product of Cameroon, a nation ofmillion peopleIn , US surgeon general David Satcher neatly summed up this story of scientific progress in apage report titled Mental Health The modern era of psychiatry, he explained, could be said to have begun inPrior to that time, psychiatry lacked treatments that could prevent patients from becoming chronically ill But then Thorazine was introduced This was the first drug that was a specific antidote to a mental disorderit was an antipsychotic medicationand it kicked off a psychopharmacological revolution Soon antidepressants and antianxiety agents were discovered, and as a result, today we enjoy a variety of treatments of well documented efficacy for the array of clearly defined mental and behavioral disorders that occur across the life span, Satcher wrote The introduction of Prozac and other second generation psychiatric drugs, the surgeon general added, was stoked by advances in both neurosciences and molecular biology and represented yet another leap forward in the treatment of mental disordersMedical students training to be psychiatrists read about this history in their textbooks, and the public reads about it in popular accounts of the field Thorazine, wrote University of Toronto professor Edward Shorter, in hisbook, A History of Psychiatry, initiated a revolution in psychiatry, comparable to the introduction of penicillin in general medicine That was the start of the psychopharmacology era, and today we can rest assured that science has proved that the drugs in psychiatrys medicine cabinet are beneficial We have very effective and safe treatments for a broad array of psychiatric disorders, Richard Friedman, director of the psychopharmacology clinic at Weill Cornell Medical College, informed readers of the New York Times on June ,Three days later, the Boston Globe, in an editorial titled When Kids Need Meds, echoed this sentiment The development of powerful drugs has revolutionized the treatment of mental illnessPsychiatrists working in countries around the world also understand this to be true At the st annual meeting of the American Psychiatric Association, which was held in Mayin Washington, DC nearly half of the twenty thousand psychiatrists who attended were foreigners The hallways were filled with chatter about schizophrenia, bipolar illness, depression, panic disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and a host of other conditions described in the APAs Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders,and over the course of five days, most of the lectures, workshops, and symposiums told of advances in the field We have come a long way in understanding psychiatric disorders, and our knowledge continues to expand, APA president Carolyn Robinowitz told the audience in her opening day address Our work saves and improves so many livesBut here is the conundrum Given this great advance in care, we should expect that the number of disabled mentally ill in the United States, on a per capita basis, would have declined over the past fifty years We should also expect that the number of disabled mentally ill, on a per capita basis, would have declined since the arrival inof Prozac and the other second generation psychiatric drugs We should see a two step drop in disability rates Instead, as thepsychopharmacology revolution has unfolded, the number of disabled mentally ill in the United States has skyrocketed Moreover, this increase in the number of disabled mentally ill has accelerated further since the introduction of Prozac and the other secondgeneration psychiatric drugs Most disturbing of all, this modernday plague has now spread to the nations childrenThe disability numbers, in turn, lead to a much larger question Why are so many Americans today, while they may not be disabled by mental illness, nevertheless plagued by chronic mental problemsby recurrent depression, by bipolar symptoms, and by crippling anxiety If we have treatments that effectively address these disorders, why has mental illness become an ever greater health problem in the United States From the Hardcover edition NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERThe timing of Robert Whitakers Anatomy of an Epidemic, a comprehensive and highly readable history of psychiatry in the United States, couldnt be better SalonAnatomy of an Epidemic offers some answers, charting controversial ground with mystery novel pacing TIMELucid, pointed and important, Anatomy of an Epidemic should be required reading for anyone considering extended use of psychiatric medicine Whitaker is at the height of his powers Greg Critser, author of Generation RxWhy are so manypeople disabled by mental illness than ever before Why are those so diagnosed dying years earlier than others In Anatomy of an Epidemic investigative reporter Robert Whitaker cuts through flawed science, greed and outright lies to reveal that the drugs hailed as the cure for mental disorders instead worsen them over the long term But Whitakers investigation also offers hope for the future solid science backs natures way of healing our mental ills through time and human relationships Whitaker tenderly interviews children and adults who bear witness to the ravages of mental illness, and testify to their newly found aliveness when freed from the prison of mind numbing drugs Daniel Dorman, MD Clinical Assistant Professor of Psychiatry, UCLA School of Medicine and author of Dantes Cure A Journey Out of MadnessThis is the most alarming book Ive read in years The approach is neither polemical nor ideologically slanted Relying on medical evidence and historical documentation, Whitaker builds his case like a prosecuting attorney Carl Elliott, MD PhD Professor, Center for Bioethics, University of Minnesota and author of Better than Well American Medicine Meets the American Dream Anatomy of an Epidemic investigates a profoundly troubling question do psychiatric medications increase the likelihood that people taking them, far from being helped, arelikely to become chronically ill In making a compelling case that our current psychotropic drugs are causing as muchif not harm than good, Robert Whitaker reviews the scientific literature thoroughly, demonstrating how much of the evidence is on his side There is nothing unorthodox herethis case is solid and evidence backed If psychiatry wants to retain its credibility with the public, it will now have to engage with the scientific argument at the core of this cogently and elegantly written book David Healy, MD Professor of Psychiatry, Cardiff University and author of The Antidepressant Era andLet Them Eat Prozac Anatomy of an Epidemic is a splendidly informed, wonderfully readable corrective to the conventional wisdom about the biological basesand biological curesfor mental illness This is itself a wise and necessary bookessential reading for all those who have experienced, or care for those who have experienced, mental illnesswhich means all of us Robert Whitaker is a reliable, sensible, and persuasive, guide to the paradoxes and complexities of what we know about mental illness, and what we might be able to do to lessen the suffering it brings Jay Neugeboren, author of Imagining Robert and Transforming MadnessEvery so often a book comes along that exposes a vast deceit Robert Whitaker has written that sort of book Drawing on a prodigious quantity of psychiatric literature as well as heart rending stories of individual patients, he exposes a deeply disturbing fraud perpetrated by the drug industry and much of modern psychiatryat horrendous human and financial cost to patients, their families, and society as a whole Scrupulously reported and written in compelling but unemotional style, this book shreds the myth woven around todays psychiatric drugs Nils Bruzelius, former science editor for the Boston Globe and the Washington PostA devastating critique One day, we will look back at the way we think about and treat mental illness and wonder if we were all mad Anatomy of
