Completely updated with newly approved drugs and indications and new formulations, this pocket-sized handbook is a one-stop quick-reference guide to prescribing psychotropic drugs for patients at every stage of the life span—children, adolescents, adults, and the elderly. In easy-to-scan bulleted format, the book provides concise information about each drug, including indications, contraindications, major side effects, lab tests required, formulations available, how to prescribe for each age group, how the drug compares to alternative treatments, and what precautions are necessary.
