Written in Frustration

Jack Dreyfus

Most people live one life; Jack Dreyfus lived two. One of the greatest investors of the twentieth century, his first life was filled with remarkable accomplishments as he founded the highly successful Dreyfus Fund. His second life began in 1963 when, in the midst of a severe depression, he did an unheard-of thing: he asked his physician for a medicine not known to be useful for his symptoms, and returned to good health almost overnight. When he saw six others have similar results, he realized he had an obligation to investigate further.

Jack Dreyfus retired from two highly successful businesses and established the Dreyfus Medical Foundation. Through the Foundation, he worked tirelessly, with no financial interest, to show how this medicine—phenytoin—has been reported useful in thousands of medical journals for more than eighty symptoms and disorders ranging from thought, mood, and behavior disorders to cardiovascular, neuromuscular, and pain ailments. The Foundation now has programs in dozens of countries around the world providing assistance to millions of people suffering from psychological and physical difficulties.

In Written in Frustration, Jack Dreyfus chronicles more than forty years of experience confronting the flaw in our system of bringing prescription medicines to the public. In the spirit of the great American satirist Mark Twain, the author employs his customary humor and wit to explore the question of how a remarkable medicine can continue to be overlooked in this country.
