Dr. Breggin has been on the show before, talking about his book Medication Madness. I love his work. He is a crusader working to keep us all safe when it comes to psychiatric medications. A psychiatrist who, as a medical-legal expert, has intimate knowledge of how our safeguards are often circumvented by drug companies intent upon making money, Dr. Breggin is now looking at the dangers of withdrawing from psychiatric medications, including how uninformed many doctors are about how to do it safely. With this book, he’s writing for doctors, patients and their families, telling us all how dangerous these drugs—and uninformed withdrawal from them—can be, and what we can do to safeguard ourselves. If you’re on psychiatric meds of any kind, you’ll want to tune in to this show, as Dr. Breggin talks about his latest book, Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal.
