CEP members publish new book: ‘The Sedated Society’

http://cepuk.org/2017/02/17/cep-memb...dated-society/

"CEP is pleased to announce the publication of a new book called ‘The Sedated Society: The Causes and Harms of our Psychiatric Prescribing Epidemic’ (Palgrave Macmillan 2017). Edited by CEP co-founder Dr James Davies, the book contains chapter contributions from a team of global experts, including Joanna Moncrieff, Peter Kinderman, Peter Breggin, Sami Timimi, Peter G°tzsche and Robert Whitaker.

Over 15% of the UK and 20% of the US adult population takes a psychiatric medication on any given day, and the numbers are only set to increase. When these figures are set against data exposing the poor outcomes and harms these medications often cause, it becomes apparent that their commercial success is not due to their therapeutic efficacy.

The book reveals how pharmaceutical sponsorship and marketing, diagnostic inflation, the manipulation and burying of negative clinical trials, lax medication regulation, and neoliberal public health policies have all been implicated in ever-rising psychopharmaceutical consumption. As increasing sedation of society may be leading to a more disabled society, this book closes by calling for total reform."

A Guide to Minimal Use of Neuroleptics

https://www.madinamerica.com/2016/10...-neuroleptics/

By
Volkmar Aderhold
October 2, 2016

"This guide provides a comprehensive review of antipsychotics, and an evidence-based rationale for treating first-episode patients without immediate use of antipsychotics; for prescribing antipsychotics at low doses when they are needed; and for supporting patients who want to taper from antipsychotic medication.

Authors: V. Aderhold, Institute for Social Psychiatry at the University of Greifswald, Germany; P. Stastny, Department of Epidemiology, Columbia University, New York"
