5.0 out of 5 stars Debunking myths of psychiatric medicine, Dec 15 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Unhinged: The Trouble with Psychiatry - A Doctor's Revelations about a Profession in Crisis (Hardcover)
I loved this very frank and forthright book on the way psychiatry is practiced in the current age. To me there was an extra level of interest, since I myself trained in medicine, and I worked in general practice for eight years before having to stop working due to severe depression. I have to agree with everything Dr Carlat has written, especially as to how the profession now mainly treats sypmtoms rather than causes. I spent years on a merry-go-round of various pharmaceutical cocktails such as what is described in the book, without any psychiatrist actually getting at the root cause of my depression. The risks he describes are all true and shamefully little discussed by prescribing psychiatrists - this book is a gold mine of information for the unsuspecting patient and I would recommend it to anyone who is considering treatment with a psychotropic medication.

This review is from: Unhinged: The Trouble with Psychiatry - A Doctor's Revelations about a Profession in Crisis (Hardcover)
The author speaks with kindness and empathy about many of his patients and feels that psychiatry could do much more for the people who seek it's help other than just writing out a prescription. He seems to fell the art of listening has dies within the field of psychiatry and that people may get better from their illness if more Psychiatrists would actually "talk" to their patients. A very good book!
