Overview

In response to the rapid developments in psychopharmacology, this completely revised and updated edition of Stephen Stahl's much acclaimed Prescriber's Guide contains three new drugs. Almost every drug has had some changes to take into account new regulations and uses, Dr Stahl has updated every drug amending where necessary. Review from the first Prescriber's Guide '... The clinical tips and pearls that are found in each entry are invaluable - not only are dosing guidelines provided, but also the author's educated and respected opinion regarding potential advantages and disadvantages of each drug. The book's major strength is its readability and user friendliness. The art of psychopharmacology is finally given the space it deserves ... This guidebook is an excellent source of information for the art of prescribing psychotropic medications and belongs in every clinician's library.' The Annals of Pharmacotherapy

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Raj Tummala, MD (Wyeth Pharmaceuticals)
Description: This guide provides clinicians with an easy to read reference integrating clinical practice with theoretical psychopharmacology. This updated edition is the newest complement to Dr. Stahl's books on psychopharmacology.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a comprehensive compendium of all psychotropic drugs in an easy to read and colorful reference.
Audience: It is targeted at anyone dealing with psychotropics such as students, residents, clinicians, nursing staff, and psychopharmacologists.
Features: This is a reference of 102 approved psychotropic listed alphabetically. Unlike other guides, this is a user-friendly book using colors, clear demarcations of sections, and icons for easy identification. Each drug has five sections identified by unique colors discussing therapeutics, side effects, dosing and use, special populations, and a section on the "Art of Psychopharmacology." Within each section are reader friendly titles that assist in finding the pertinent information quickly. The drugs are covered in a consistent format and the book provides brand names, FDA approved indications, augmenting strategies, side effect mitigation, and dosing guidelines. Of special mention is the section on special populations including the elderly, children and adolescents, and pregnant women. A very nice feature setting this guide apart from the multitude of references in the market is the author's opinion and expertise combined with practical advice in the "Art of Psychopharmacology." The indexes are particularly useful indexing by brand name, use, and class.
Assessment: This is a very useful and easy to read update that clinicians can use in daily practice as a quick reference. While the book is not as extensive as the PDR, it is a colorful and user-friendly reference that provides the necessary information. Reference books are not known to be fun to read. Dr. Stahl adds the fun factor to this guide.

    Use Daily

    I have used this book daily for over 2 years now. It's excellent! Clearly and simply laid out and has all the information you need as a prescriber-brands, whether or not it's generic, what it's commonly prescribed for, and the list goes on....
