 Psychiatry  Comments Off on Sleep Disorders in Psychiatric Patients: A Practical Guide
Jul 282018
 

This book is designed to give clinicians a practical guide to the detection, assessment and treatment of sleep disorders in patients with psychiatric illness in order to better treat both their sleep disorder and their psychiatric disorder. In addition to providing a thorough introduction to the major sleep disorders, it offers clear guidance on how to assess and manage these disorders in patients with a wide range of psychiatric conditions. The role of psychiatric medication and special considerations to be borne in mind when treating psychiatric patients are also addressed. Although it is aimed primarily at psychiatrists, this will also be a useful handbook for sleep clinics and general practitioners who frequently have to manage patients with both psychiatric and sleep disorders.

Multiple Primary Malignancies

 Surgery  Comments Off on Multiple Primary Malignancies
Jul 282018
 

In 2006, when my colleague Andrea Renda proposed multiple primary malignancies (MPM) as the subject of the Biennial Report to the 2008 Congress of the Italian – ciety of Surgery, I, together with the Steering Committee, quickly agreed. Recent progress in our understanding of the etiopathology of these neoplasms has led to – novative and significant progress on the clinical level. Importantly, the incidence of the onset of two or more tumors in the same patient suggests a more than casual – lationship. Furthermore, the occurrence of MPM derives from several different me- anisms―viral, iatrogenic, immunologic, environmental, and hereditary―such that any form of treatment must take into account the etiology of these tumors. After an epidemiological introduction, this monograph analyzes various aspects of multitumoral syndromes based on the experience of the Department of Surgical Sciences, along with that of other clinical departments of the University Federico II of Naples. In the discussion of inherited tumors, reference is made to the series of patients treated at the Department of Surgery at the University of Siena. The many topics that comprise this volume range from carcinogenesis to diagnostic strategies, and from epidemiology to innovations in imaging and endoscopic techniques. Among the clinical aspects, particular emphasis is given to sporadic and hereditary syndromes, as these patients are frequently treated by general surgery departments.

Brain Disabling Treatments in Psychiatry: Drugs, Electroshock, and the Psychopharmaceutical Complex

 Psychiatry  Comments Off on Brain Disabling Treatments in Psychiatry: Drugs, Electroshock, and the Psychopharmaceutical Complex
Jul 282018
 

From the author of Toxic Psychiatry and Talking Back to Prozac:

Peter Breggin is the conscience of American psychiatry. Once more he updates us on the real evidence with respect to the safety and effectiveness of specific psychiatric medications and ECT. This information is needed by all mental health professionals, as well as patients and families.” –Bertram Karon, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, Michigan State University, Author of The Psychotherapy of Schizophrenia
“Nowhere does false medical thinking do more harm than in the modern psychiatric argument that mental illness is easily diagnosed and then cured by a side-effect free drug. Nowhere is the correct psychiatric thinking more evident than in the books by Peter Breggin. – William Glasser, MD, psychiatrist, author of Reality Therapy
In Brain Disabling Treatments in Psychiatry, renowned psychiatrist Peter R. Breggin, M.D., presents startling scientific research on the dangerous behavioral abnormalities and brain dysfunctions produced by the most widely used and newest psychiatric drugs such as Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, Cymbalta, Effexor, Xanax, Ativan, Ritalin, Adderall, Concerta, Strattera, Risperdal, Zyprexa, Geodon, Abilify, lithium and Depakote.

Many of Breggin’s earlier findings have improved clinical practice, led to legal victories against drug companies, and resulted in FDA-mandated changes in what the manufacturers must admit about their drugs. Yet reliance on these drugs has continued to escalate in the last decade, and drug company interests have overwhelmed psychiatric practice.

This greatly expanded second edition, supported by the latest evidence-based research, shows that psychiatric drugs achieve their primary or essential effect by causing brain dysfunction, and that they tend to do far more harm than good.

New scientific analyses in this completely updated edition include:

– Chapters covering every new antidepressant and stimulant drug

– Twenty new guidelines for how to conduct non-drug therapy

– A chapter describing how to safely withdraw from psychiatric drugs

– A discussion of “medication spellbinding,” explaining how patients fail to appreciate their drug-induced mental dysfunctions

– Documentation of how the drug companies control research and the flow of information about psychiatric treatments
