Child Psychopharmacology tackles the ongoing debate over the use of psychotropic medication on child and adolescent disorders. This book reviews the most up-to-date research on the topic and offers practical guidance for treating patients. Some points of interest in this volume include: Discussion of exciting new evidence that OCD may be secondary to betahemolytic streptococcal infections. Thorough coverage of both the benefits and side effects of antipsychotic medications including recent research on clozapine and olanzapine. Thoughtful academic treatment of the effectiveness of antidepressant medications, such as fluxetine, for treating adolescent bulimia. In a field of study that is controversial and ever changing, Child Psychopharmacology is an invaluable reference.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Thus this relatively concise text presents current evidence on the pharmacological management of a number of childhood conditions, and to a number of important areas of controversy. It is thus recommended for all medical practitioners prescribing pharmacological agents for children and adolescents."-- "Journal of Pediatric Child Health"


"[T]he writing is clear and succinct, and the information and references up-to-date.... The book is to be highly recommended."-- "Readings: A Journal of Reviews and Commentary in Mental Health"


"Divided into six chapters... each written by an expert in the field, the overall feel to this book is one of brevity and an emphasis on what we need to know in order to best inform clinical practice.... This book is an excellent, concise and just about up-to-date summary of the use of psychopharmacological agents in children. It provides precise guidelines for practice where they exist and cautions where knowledge is lacking. Its brevity means that it can be read in a few hours. It is an essential read for all psychiatrists and trainee psychiatrists dealing with children and adolescents and the pediatricians and general practitioners who prescribe psychotropic drugs like methylphenidate or antidepressants to children."-- "Irish Journal of Psychological Medicine"
