Item description for Prescription for Madness by Joy Hancock...

Prescription for Madness is a powerful, heart wrenching story of a family whose lives are turned upside down when their oldest child, Christopher, is diagnosed with a mental illness at the age of sixteen. After Christopher starts a six month regime of anti-depressants and anti-psychotic medications the reader will be swept away as the family walks and then runs with Christopher as he rages, becomes increasingly violent, suicidal and ultimately committed to psychiatric hospitals. Desperately buying into every diagnosis handed by the doctors the mother is shocked to find out what in fact caused Christopher's bizarre behavior in the first place. Prescription for Madness is a story of hope, determination and courage told through the eyes of Christopher's mother. It is a story of a family's love and support, of anger, disgust, embarrassment and eventual triumph.

Reviews - What do customers think about Prescription for Madness?

Read This Book!!!!  Nov 27, 2006
This is the story of an extraordinarily bright and gifted teenager having a bad day. His doctors turned a common painful teen experience into a nightmare and nearly cost him and others their lives! Be sure to read to the end for a big surprise! The moral of the story is .. don't just accept what your doctors tell you .. do some research .. and trust your instincts.
A must read for every parent.  Oct 9, 2006
This book makes you question placing all of your trust in doctors. I just couldn't stop reading to find out what happened next as I became more overwhelmed with what was happening. This is a real eye opener into antidepressents which I would have never thought twice about before reading this book. ANyone with kids on any type of long-term prescritions should read this book.

This is a true, believeable story. At what point do you stop blindly listening to people who don't give hope a chance? Chris is a good person who blindly accepted attempts to cure him, when he was much better off just listening to himself! Everyone should read this book!
A Must Read!!  Aug 17, 2006
Prescription for Madness is a gutwrenching must read. I could barely keep reading, yet I had to find out what happened to Chris. The teen's downward spiral echoed events in my own family's life. Prescription drugs for depression have saved many lives, but daresay have destroyed just as many. If you or your family members are taking antidepressants or considering them, please read this book, and ask lots of questions! You could save everybody's sanity and possibly somebody's life.
