Since publication of the first edition of the Manual of Clinical Psychopharmacology in 1986, the number of psychotropic medications has expanded greatly, and these medications are being used in unforeseen and unprecedented ways. Pharmaceutical companies develop -- and clinicians and patients await -- new drug therapies to treat diverse conditions, from attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder to social phobia, from posttraumatic stress disorder to depression. The pace and complexity of research in this critical discipline make it essential that practitioners stay abreast of both new medications and promising treatment protocols.
This newly revised and completely current seventh edition of this classic manual is an indispensable resource for clinicians and students in both psychiatry and pharmacology. Revised by preeminent psychopharmacologists, the book presents systematic, comprehensive, yet utterly accessible information and practical advice for applying psychotropic medications to the treatment of specific psychiatric conditions. Although largely evidence-based, the book also draws upon the authors' clinical experience in discussing drug efficacy, dosing, side effects, and contraindications.
The many succinct summary tables serve as quick reference guides, and helpful illustrations abound. Veteran clinicians and neophytes, alike, will find the information they need in this collegial, comprehensive, and cutting-edge manual.About the Author:
