Prescription Drugs Also Kill: How Doctors Nearly Killed Me

by D. L. Duran

“Prescription Drugs Also Kill” is the true story of one woman’s struggle to recover from a 20 year addiction to prescription drugs. Author, D.L. Duran’s addiction began after the birth of her second child in 1970, when unrelenting postpartum insomnia and anxiety prompted her to phone her OB/GYN physician and ask his advice on the matter.

Her book documents the irresponsibility of her medical care, how indiscriminately doctors prescribed addictive drugs, even though they knew she was the mother of two young children, one a newborn. When her family...

John Langsdorf John Langsdorf once told me, “If ever I can do anything for you—just ask. I won’t be able to do it of course, but no harm asking.”We met in the early 80s when Hoboken was transforming from an On the Waterfront hardscrabble town into a crepes and craft beer mediocrity.
