Overview

Drawn from the best-selling second edition of Essential Psychopharmacology, Steve Stahl has revised and updated the chapters covering antipsychotics and mood stabilizers in this separate volume. This new book covers the many dimensions of psychosis, particularly as associated with schizophrenia, and examines the role of dopamine in psychosis along with the various theories about the causes, pathophysiology, and treatment of schizophrenia. New material includes discussion of a promising new agent, aripiprazole, the first in a new class of dopamine stabilizers; the use of anticonvulsant agents to treat manic psychosis as well as being used as adjuncts to more traditional antipsychotic treatments for psychosis and schizophrenia; and the newest atypical antipsychotic ziprasidone. CME self-assessment tests are included.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Raj Tummala, MD (Wyeth Pharmaceuticals)
Description: This is an update to the second edition of Essential Psychopharmacology. The book presents new theories about dopaminergic modulation of receptors along with information on the new class of antipsychotic agents: dopamine system stabilizers. The book also covers extensive uses of mood stabilizers for the treatment of psychosis. This version, like the previous edition, presents materials in an easy to read format with excellent illustrations.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an update on the latest advances in the treatment of psychosis and schizophrenia in an easy to read, simplified format. This book's primary value is the extensive illustrations with repetition and interaction.
Audience: This book is targeted towards anyone dealing with psychotropics such as students, residents, clinicians, and psychopharmacologists.
Features: The book starts with a review of the fundamentals of psychosis and goes into detail about schizophrenia including etiology from a neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative hypothesis. The second chapter deals with the antipsychotic agents; first with conventional agents and then the newer, atypical agents. The book details neuroanatomical and neurophysiological mechanisms of the antipsychotic agents with excellent illustrations. The book focuses on repetition and interaction, which help readers retain the material. The author describes the pharmacokinetics of these agents and their use in clinical practice. The book also covers novel theories about antipsychotic mechanisms and their use as mood stabilizers in bipolar disorder. The book ends with a review of future antipsychotics.
Assessment: This is a very useful and easy to read update that clinicians can use in daily practice as a quick reference. The book is written in a very practical, user-friendly format differentiating itself from other books in this category.
