Beca Mark wished she could have found this book when hopelessly struggling with depression and anxiety after having her first child.

 

She takes you on a heartfelt journey and shares how healing only came when combining a daily Prozac prescription with a commitment to be her best self.

 

By sharing faith-based, personal details about her life, she hopes to soften the cultural stigma surrounding mental illness, shedding a more positive light on these issues.

 

This book could benefit:

 

•Someone taking medication for a mental illness, wanting to know he or she is not alone.

 

•Someone suffering from depression or anxiety and considering medication for help.

 

•Someone wanting to understand why anyone would ever take a drug like Prozac.

 

•Someone about to give birth to a baby.

My Take

 

I think Pros of Prozac is a 5/5-star book, but I'm biased.

 

Thank you to everyone who spends their well-earned money and invaluable time to read my book. Thank you especially if you take the time to additionally leave an honest review about Pros of Prozac on Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes/iBooks, etc.

 

I wrote this book because positive books about psychotropic medication are lacking, most especially ones written through a faith-based or Christian paradigm. The louder minority writes books like Potatoes Not Prozac, Prozac Backlash, Talking Back to Prozac, Natural Prozac, and Plato, Not Prozac!

 

Psychotropic medications (Prozac, Xanax, Celexa, Zoloft, Seroquel, Wellbutrin, Risperdal, Abilify, etc.) help millions in their journey to mental health. I CELEBRATE this!

 

Let it be know that while I attempt to highlight all the good that psychotropic medications facilitate, I don't believe that medication is the full solution to anyone's mental health. I do, however, believe that in many cases, the right medication can open more doors to healing (e.g., through therapy) than would be possible without it.

 

Much love,

Beca Mark
