  Elizabeth Wurtzel Monday 18 February 2002  
Elizabeth Wurtzel 's book Prozac Nation is a tale of a middle class American woman whose addiction to prescription drugs gets the better of her.

But success didn't help Elizabeth Wurtzel's depression, and in her latest book, More, Now, Again, she chronicles her addiction to Ritalin, an amphetamine-type drug normally prescribed to children with Attention Deficit Syndrome.
She talks to Jenni about her pattern of self abuse.
More, Now, Again, by Elizabeth Wurtzel, Virago Press; ISBN: 186049918X, £12.99
