Listening to Prozac The Landmark Book About Antidepressants and the Remaking of the Self Revised Edition Review ç 2 Since it was introduced in 1987 Prozac has been prescribed to nearly five million Americans But what is Prozac a medication or a mental steroid A cure for depression or a drug. This excellent book written when Prozac and other SSRI antidepressants were relatively new is at times a little dated but still extremely interesting Kramer is a phsychiatrist who had been treating patients with depression and other problems for years when Prozac became available Prozac did not have the same severely limiting side effects that plagued the other antidepressants then available which made it easier and safer to prescribe for patients who might normally have avoided medication Kramer and other psychiatrists soon began to notice something interesting and disconcerting patients who took Prozac for one condition often experienced a change across the board Previously painfully shy one patient discovered that she suddenly was able to date and flirt Many patients reported feeling better than normal happier brighter confident For Kramer and other psychiatrists this raised a multitude of uestions about what constitutes mental illness and what the implications are when a medication can change a person s personality so drastically Had these people who now felt better than normal been ill all their lives and were now well Where does one draw the line between illness and personalityKramer explores all sides of the issue here and while he is clearly impressed by the positive changes Prozac has wrought among his patients he is also curious and concerned about the power of this antidepressant One of the things I liked about this book is that I got the impression that Kramer is willing to have his mind changed he has formed ideas and philosophies about the use of antidepressants but he seems to be constantly looking at and weighing the evidence and monitoring how his methods of treating patients have changed since the advent of Prozac I would like to locate a copy of the revised edition of this book so I can read some of his commentary on this ever changing issue in mental health

I appreciate the depth to which Kramer dove into the ethical uestions surrounding Prozac and other anti depressants he deconstructs this term in order to explain these drugs without preconceived notions While it wasn t the easiest read many detailed case studies and scientific terms he does a great job keeping an open mind and helping you to develop your own opinion Something I had not thought of before reading this is that different societies and eras prize different personality types For example a melancholy personality could have been valuable in Victorian era than it would be today where fast moving uick witted outgoing personalities thrive Would Prozac be as sought after then as it is nowThis book was written awhile ago but the interesting uestions it asks about psychotropics are still very relevant today This book left me with uestions than answers which I consider to be a good thing
