This new third edition of the Essentials incorporates the latest research and treatment advances and presents key information in an accessible and easy-to-use manner. The chapter authors are among the foremost national authorities in their areas of expertise, and the content has been thoroughly referenced and meticulously edited for maximum utility.

    • Comprehensive coverage of the current psychotropic pharmacopoeia, including new chapters on the recently introduced antipsychotics asenapine, iloperidone, and lurasidone and updated chapters reflecting further accumulation of experience with other medications.
