Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nicholas Greco IV, MS, BCETS, CATSM (Columbia College of Missouri)
Description: This is a compact, yet completely up-to-date handbook for the most commonly used drug therapies in everyday psychiatric practice. This third edition replaces the 1996 edition, and much like its predecessor, will become an invaluable tool and asset to the field of psychiatry.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an updated edition to highlight the continuous changes prompted by the introduction of new medications as well as to provide revised information regarding available treatments. The information is easily accessible for busy clinicians, and an affordable medication reference for clinical rounds, board review, medical education, and everyday, clinical practice. The author's objectives are well-timed, essential, and unquestionably met by this latest edition.
Audience: Intended mainly for psychiatrists, psychiatric residents, and medical students, this book will undoubtedly serve the needs of primary care physicians and mental health professionals such as psychologists, nurses, and social workers. This is the authors' third edition; both are highly respected and well-known within the field of psychiatry, and their credibility is without question.
Features: This book appropriately uses both black-and-white and color illustrations to highlight the various psychiatric medications. The color illustrations provide a quick reference for physicians and can also help patients identify what medications they are taking. The index is thorough. Each chapter is in-depth and lists preparation and dosages, pharmacological actions, indications for use, various side effects, as well as use in children, the elderly, and in pregnant and nursing women. The authors provide an easy-to-read format with practical, timely, and necessary information.
Assessment: As psychopharmacology continues to advance, the need for a reliable, quick reference guide is vital to the stream of change. This latest publication is without a doubt riding the wave of change and will be an essential asset to the field of mental health. This book is undeniably recommended.
