The creation of psychopharmacology by David Healy( )

18 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 1,898 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, David Healy follows his study, The Antidepressant Era, with an even more ambitious and dramatic story: the discovery and development of antipsychotic medication. Healy argues that the discovery of chlorpromazine (more generally known as Thorazine) is as significant in the history of medicine as the discovery of penicillin, given the worldwide prevalence of insanity within living memory."--Jacket
Pharmageddon by David Healy( )

18 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,653 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

David Healy's most comprehensive and forceful argument against the pharmaceuticalization of medicine, tackles problems in health care that are leading to a growing number of deaths and disabilities. Healy, who was the first to draw attention to the now well-publicized suicide-inducing side effects of many anti-depressants, attributes our current state of affairs to three key factors: product rather than process patents on drugs, the classification of certain drugs as prescription-only, and industry-controlled drug trials. These developments have tied the survival of pharmaceutical companies to the development of blockbuster drugs, so that they must overhype benefits and deny real hazards. Healy further explains why these trends have basically ended the possibility of universal health care in the United States and elsewhere around the world. He concludes with suggestions for reform of our currently corrupted evidence-based medical system
Let them eat Prozac : the unhealthy relationship between the pharmaceutical industry and depression by David Healy( Book )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 1,022 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Let Them Eat Prozac explores the history of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) - from their early development to the latest marketing campaigns - and the controversies that surround them. Initially, they seemed like wonder drugs for mild to moderate depression, one pill a day to a new you, and unlike the tranquilizers that were popular from the 1960s to the 1980s, SSRIs supposedly could not lead to addiction. When Prozac was released in the late 1980s, David Healy was among the psychiatrists who prescribed them. But he soon observed that some patients became agitated and even attempted suicide. Confirmatory studies were soon published, citing numerous cases in which patients became anxious and reported increased suicidal thoughts while taking Prozac. Could the new wonder drug actually be making patients worse?" "Healy draws on his own research and expertise to demonstrate the potential hazards associated with these drugs. He intersperses case histories with insider accounts of the research leading to the development and approval of SSRIs as a treatment for depression."--Jacket
The antidepressant era by David Healy( Book )

31 editions published between 1997 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 1,006 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Against a backdrop of changing ideas about medicine, this book details the origins of the pharmaceutical industry, the pressures for the regulation of drug companies, and the emergences of the idea of a depressive disease. This historical and neurochemical analysis leads to a clear look at what antidepressants reveal about both the workings of the brain and the sociology of drug marketing."

Mania : a short history of bipolar disorder by David Healy( Book )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 766 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This provocative history of bipolar disorder illuminates how perceptions of illness, if not the illnesses themselves, are mutable over time. Beginning with the origins of the concept of mania--and the term maniac--in ancient Greek and Roman civilizations, renowned psychiatrist David Healy examines how concepts of mental afflictions evolved as scientific breakthroughs established connections between brain function and mental illness. Healy recounts the changing definitions of mania through the centuries, explores the effects of new terminology and growing public awareness of the disease on culture and society, and examines the rise of psychotropic treatments and pharmacological marketing over the past four decades. Along the way, Healy clears much of the confusion surrounding bipolar disorder even as he raises crucial questions about how, why, and by whom the disease is diagnosed. Drawing heavily on primary sources and supplemented with interviews and insight gained over Healy's long career, this lucid and engaging overview of mania sheds new light on one of humankind's most vexing ailments
Shock therapy : a history of electroconvulsive treatment in mental illness by Edward Shorter( Book )

18 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Electroconvulsive therapy, or ECT, has in the last thirty years been considered a method of last resort in the treatment of debilitating depression, suicidal ideation, and other forms of mental illness. Yet, ironically, its effectiveness in treating these patients would suggest it as a frontline therapy, bringing relief from acute symptoms and saving lives. In this book, Edward Shorter and David Healy trace the controversial history of ECT and other "shock" therapies. Drawing on case studies, public debates, extensive interviews, and archival research, the authors expose the myths about ECT that have proliferated over the years." "By showing ECT's often life-saving results, Shorter and Healy endorse a point of view that is hotly contested in professional circles and in public debates, but for the nearly half of all clinically depressed patients who do not respond to drugs, this book brings much needed hope."--BOOK JACKET
