Medical statistics show that women are twice as likely as men to suffer from clinical depression and that more than 70 per cent of all antidepressant prescriptions are for women. This book explains in non-technical language how these drugs can affect their lives and the lives of those around them. It gives details of the many treatment options available for women with anxiety or depressive disorders, together with the various causes for these disorders and their common symptoms, how diagnoses are made and how various medications work. There is also information on how these medications may affect women's bodies during menstruation, pregnancy and breast feeding, and gives advice on side effects such as weight gain and loss of sex drive.
