Prozac and Other Antidepressants

Hardback
Depression is one of the most widely diagnosed disorders worldwide. Since the antidepressant drug Prozac was introduced as a treatment for depression in 1987, more than 54 million people around the world have tried it, and millions more have tried other antidepressants. As new antidepressants are developed and prescribed for depression and other disorders, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder and phobias, the stigma that was once associated with mental illness has begun to lessen. Prozac and Other Antidepressants examines antidepressant therapies available today and how they affect the body and minds of people who are treated with them.
