Über diesen Titel


The first revolution took place when doctors began to treat the mentally ill as patients rather than criminals. The second came with theories of Freud. The third--the use of chemotherapy (prescribed drugs to treat mental illness)--is the fascinating subject of this landmark book. Dr. Fieve explains the main causes of depression and other mood disorders from which twenty million Americans suffer. He tells how the use of lithium carbonate, the "Cinderella drug" in psychiatry, has effectively controlled manic depression, one of the most enigmatic of mental illnesses. He exposes both the exceptional advantages and the destructive effects of mood-swing in the Wall Street tycoon, the bankrupt businessman, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, the blocked writer, the career girl, the depressed housewife, the world statesman, and the suicidal politician. Although a trained psychoanalyst himself, Dr. Fieve explains why he and others now seriously question the efficacy of psychoanalysis and psychotherapy for most mood disorders. Dr. Fieve believes instead that most mood-swings have a chemical--not a psychological--origin, since they respond to chemical treatment.
