Questioning the use of antidepressants
In his 2010 book, Anatomy of an Epidemic: Magic Bullets, Psychiatric Drugs and the Astonishing Rise of Mental Illness in America, investigative journalist Robert Whitaker argues psychiatric medications are often ineffective and that the idea of chemical imbalance is unproven. His book was controversial, but it won the 2010 Investigative Reporters and Editors Book Award and his ideas have support from prominent psychiatrists. His work is profiled in this CBC article and you can hear him in this radio interview with Michael Enright on The Sunday Edition.
