Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nancy Schell, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This is a short textbook summarizing the various antidepressants, their postulated method of action, and their differential qualities in the hopes of aiding the clinician in the rational use of these drugs.
Purpose: The purpose is to help answer questions such as which drug should be used with a particular patient, how long treatment should continue, what precautions are necessary, and what drug interactions are important to know.
Audience: The intended audience is the practicing clinician but it is a great book for students as well.
Features: This book is a comprehensive synopsis of antidepressants, their possible mechanisms of action, and their various clinical uses with highlights on particular differentiating effects of each and clinical applications of such differences. The text is clear and easy to read with current and relevant discussion of treatment approaches to the numerous depressive and anxiety disorders. Ample color illustrations and tables are particularly helpful. Discussion of drugs not used in the U.S. is very interesting. There is a list of suggested readings in the back of the book, though it would be more beneficial to include direct references. Logical treatment choices are delineated though these may vary from country to country and may not be universally accepted.
Assessment: This is a very helpful resource in understanding the current knowledge about the basic neurochemical hypotheses of antidepressants and their use in psychiatric disorders. This is good, practical information for the practitioner. It is highly recommended.
