She has written articles critical of various psychiatric drug treatments, including lithium, antidepressants and neuroleptics.

Reviews

This straightforward book is one that should be read by anyone currently taking, or thinking about taking, a psychotropic drug; anyone prescribing them and anyone party to their use. It offers a radically different and sobering view as to what the drugs do compared with the views on offer elsewhere. David Healy,Professor of Psychological Medicine, University of Wales School of Medicine, Cardiff.
