Overview

Illustrated in full color throughout and including the now famous icons, this latest addition to the Essential Psychopharmacology collection presents pragmatic guidance to clinicians. Stephen Stahl includes all the information a prescriber needs to treat patients effectively by devoting four pages to each of the 100 psychotropic drugs he covers. The information comes in four categories for each drug: therapeutics, side effects, special populations, and tips and pearls. Therapeutics covers the brands of drug, class of drug, and how the drug works. Side effects covers the nature and significance of notable side effects. Special populations covers renal impairment, hepatic impairment, cardiac impairment, the elderly, children and adolescents, and women (childbearing, pregnancy, breast feeding, perimenopause, menopause). Tips and pearls covers best augmention/combining, potential advantages, potential disadvantages, pearls, dosing tips, and suggested reading. Each element has a target icon so the prescriber can easily and instantly access the information needed. A comprehensive index lists both generic and proprietary names for the featured drugs.
