In this revised and expanded Moodswing, Dr. Fieve sheds new light on the causes and symptoms of specific mood disorders, including manic depression, seasonal depression, and PMS.Then, through case studies, he illustrates the effective use of the latest diagnostic methods and drug treatments.He also provides fascinating information on: Why creative types are often prone to manic-depressive disorders--the results of a fifteen-year follow-up study. How manic depression, alcoholism, and substance abuse go hand in hand. How presidents, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwrights, and Wall Street wizards can benefit from manic advantage, but crumble when their moods crash. The revolutionary uses of one of psychiatrys greatest wonder drugs: lithium, as well as new material on the latest antidepressant drugs.
