9780060987077: Beyond Prozac: Antidotes for Modern Times

Do you find that you don't handle stress well and are frequently irritable?

Did you know the much-publicized low-fat/high-carbohydrate diet of recent years may actually be making you depressed and overweight?

And what are the hidden dangers of sleep loss and irregular schedules?

In Beyond Prozac, Dr. Michael Norden, a psychiatrist and pioneer in developing new applications of Prozac, explains how the toll of modern-day life has undermined our health and led to a national epidemic of depression, anxiety and weight problems. But there is hope. Based on seven years of groundbreaking research and clinical work, Beyond Prozac offers solutions to these chronic health problems that go beyond simply prescribing Prozac from incredibly effective alternative treatments such as light therapy, regulation of sleeping habits, and specialized diets to the next generation of safer and more effective depression medications. A decisive voice in the debate about depression, Beyond Prozac is a provocative and enduring classic in the modern literature about mental health.

Now revised and expanded to include the latest new information and research, Beyond Prozac gives you the inside scoop on:

  • Powerful new antidepressants: Serzone, Wellbutrin and Remeron
  • The surprising relationship between weather, brain chemistry and behavior
  • New studies hinting that low serotonin is the norm, not the exception, and what this means for those seeking treatment
  • What melatonin really can and can't do
  • Depression, health and "The Zone" diet
  • The latest all-natural treatments for depression: DHEA and St. John's wort
  • Updates on Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, Luvox and more!

About the Author:

Michael Norden a psychiatrist and clinical associate professor at the University of Washington, pioneered the integration of psychopharmacology and alternative treatments. He lives in Seattle, WA.

From Publishers Weekly:

Norden, a New York psychiatrist who has found the antidepressant Prozac to be profoundly helpful to his patients, suggests that the toll taken by the stresses of modern-day life has made us all "Prozac deficient." Maintaining that our environment and lifestyle tend to deplete our natural supplies of serotonin (the brain hormone that Prozac bolsters), he suggests a series of lifestyle approaches by which we can buttress our serotonin system-and its benefits. Chapters discussing light therapy, melatonin, sleep patterns, exercise, diet and vitamin, mineral and amino acid supplements also cite a host of recent studies and references to research-in-progress. In clear prose, Norden also offers anecdotal reports from his own practice, often detailing courses of medication supplementing Prozac in dosages tailored to individual metabolisms. He gives previews of the next generation of antidepressants, which may supplant-and will certainly refine the use of-Prozac and its cousins. His examination of how the brain is affected by the heating and cooling properties of various treatments and his discussion of eating patterns are of special note, as is the extensive bibliography. $50,000 ad/ promo; author tour.
