In June 2003, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration sparked a heated debate when it issued a warning to physicians concerning the possible increased risk of suicide in children and adolescents taking antidepressants. The authors in this anthology debate the safety and efficacy of antidepressants in both children and adults, exploring issues such as overprescription, the placebo effect and suicide.
"These books are an excellent source for middle and high school readers to enhance their critical thinking skills. They could easily be used as jumping off points for research projects and debate topics."
