    Description
    Since childhood, Lauren Slater's history had been one of severe depression, self-mutilating behaviour and suicide attempts resulting in psychiatric hospitalisation and the eventual diagnosis of obsessive-compulsive disorder. When in 1988 she was given Prozac - at that time a new 'wonder' drug - many of the symptoms magically disappeared, leaving Slater with a great many questions about the nature of her own identity. Who was she without her pain? Was the loss of her creativity and sexual feeling a worthwhile trade-off? Would Prozac, now the great love in her life, betray her, or would she remain well for ever?
    'Beautifully written and scrupulously honest. Slater's book records ten years of dependence.'
    Ronald Hayman, Daily Telegraph

    'Unmissable... Slater's writing is passionate and poetic.'
    Charlotte Thomas, New Scientist
