Following the success of Atlas of Psychiatric Pharmacotherapy, this text explores the subject further. It distills that comprehensive survey of the medical literature into the most salient topics. The author focuses not only on the most frequently prescribed drugs, including antidepressants and antipsychotics, but also on how drugs interact with each other and how they are abused. The same team of experts here presents imaginative diagrams and text that explains all the information required by clinicians in their daily practice. Psychiatrists and pharmacologists alike will find this volume indispensable.
