»Vores piller« beskriver medicinalindustriens indflydelse på sundhedsvæsenet. Bogen krediterer industrien for at have medvirket til, at alvorlige sygdomme kan behandles effektivt, men fokuserer primært på, hvordan pengestrømmen fra industrien til læger, politikere, medier og patientforeninger bruges til at øge salget af lægemidler.

Nina Vinther Andersen gør stoffet levende ved brug af patienthistorier og citater. Der er historien om den knæopererede mand, som kunne have fået et ældre NSAID eller paracetamol, men i stedet fik Vioxx, som ifølge Patientforsikringens opfattelse gav ham et myokardieinfarkt.

Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal (Peter R. Breggin)

Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal: A Guide for Prescribers, Therapists, Patients and Their Families

"Nothing in the field of mental health will do more good and reduce more harm than encouraging withdrawal from psychiatric drugs. The time is past when the focus in mental health was on what drugs to take for what disorders. Now we need to focus on how to stop taking psychiatric drugs and to replace them with more person-centered, empathic approaches. The goal is no longer drug maintenance and stagnation; the goal is recovery and achieving well-being.

My new book, Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal: A Guide for Prescribers, Therapists, Patients and Families, responds to a citizen rebellion that demands, “Help us get off these drugs!” It also encourages a professional revolution among concerned therapists who want to reject the idea of enforcing “patient compliance.”

It’s time for therapists—psychologists, nurses, social workers, family therapists, and counselors—to stop pushing their clients and patients to take psychiatric drugs that cause brain damage, harm the body, and shorten their patients’ lives. In Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal, therapists will learn about psychiatric drugs to actively participate with patients and families in the medication decision-making process.
