This succinct handbook provides students and practitioners with clinically relevant psychotropic drug information. The Eighth Edition is designed as a reference text that also teaches by delivering informative narrative text under standard headlines with references. Its focus goes beyond drug information to cover pharmacotherapy applications.
The book provides detailed, well-referenced, evidence-based information on a wide range of psychotropic drugs, including mood stabilizers, antidepressants, and antianxiety agents. This edition has new chapters on pediatric and geriatric psychopharmacotherapy; new content on antipsychotics, hypnotics, medications used in treating alcoholism and substance dependence, and electroconvulsive therapy; and new algorithms, appendices, and tables.
