Book Description:

Essential Psychopharmacology of Depression and Bipolar Disorder is an invaluable resource for all clinicians involved in the treatment of depression and bipolar disorder. Stressing the basic neuroscience of mood disorders, Stephen Stahl's fully updated, authoritative, illustrated text shows how the various antidepressants and mood stabilizers work and gives new information on the pharmacokinetics of antidepressants, including the role of the cytochrome P450 enzyme system and neuropeptides--among them substance P. The mechanisms of action of newer antidepressants, including the latest SSRIs, are also prominently and authoritatively reviewed.

Review:

"Overall, this is an excellent text for explaining mechanisms of drug action...Stahl has effectively outlined the mechanisms responsible for the therapeutic actions and side effects of each drug in an easily understood fashion. This is a must read." Canadian Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.

"This is an impressive book by an author who clearly knows how to communicate his subject in a clear and interesting way...It is beautifully illustrated in colour throughout...For those with clinical responsibility for prescribing antidepressants and mood stabilisers there is no other book quite like this to stimulate, inform and direct further inquiry." British Journal of Psychology

"Overall, this is a fantastic comprehensive compendium that is only surpassed by the clever illustrations that clearly demonstrate the difficult concepts and makes light of them. I would recommend this book to anyone who truly wants to understand the nature of depression and bipolar disorder and how the various psychotropic drugs function." mentalhelp.net

"This style is succinct, clear, thorough and up-to-date, thus making it a useful text for a broad readership of all clinicians involved in treating patients with an affective disorder." Addiction Biology
