Description

Well over 150 medications are represented in this new Handbook of Practical Psychopharmacology. Intended as a quick-reference tool for clinicians, trainees, and other practitioners, it is rich in high-yield, evidence-based, and easily accessible information for commonly prescribed psychopharmacological agents, including antidepressants, antipsychotics, stimulants, mood stabilizers, and nutraceuticals/phytoceuticals.

For each medication covered, readers will find concise, easily referenced information on

  • Indications
  • Contraindications
  • Dosing
  • Drug interactions
  • Clinical monitoring
  • Adverse effects

Conveniently organized by drug class and indication, the handbook also features clinical pearls for each agent and class from experts and published literature in the field. Readers will benefit from evidence-based information on off-label prescribing, as well as from sections devoted to prescribing in special situations (e.g., pregnancy and lactation) and in specific populations (e.g., older adults and children/adolescents).

As useful as a teaching tool and study guide as it is as an on-the-spot resource in outpatient, inpatient, and emergency settings, the Handbook of Practical Psychopharmacology is the busy practitioner's must-have companion.
