Overview

Side effects can jeopardize treatment adherence and discourage the use of otherwise effective pharmacotherapies. How can busy clinicians best anticipate and manage the drug side effects experienced by their patients? How are they best able to make medication decisions that balance treatment risks and benefits thoughtfully and confidently?

Filling a critical gap, Managing the Side Effects of Psychotropic Medications provides a wealth of practical and comprehensive knowledge to help clinicians recognize and navigate the diversity of end-organ psychotropic drug effects. This well-crafted resource will help practitioners better understand the consequences of available drug therapies, the range of strategies to effectively counteract adverse effects, and the scientific and practical implications of their treatment decisions. The highly respected authors contribute their depth of clinical wisdom in this supremely useful volume, presenting information that is either unavailable or less clearly distilled in psychopharmacology textbooks. Moreover, this work translates the oft-buried helpful elements of clinical trial data into wise counsel for real-world practice.

This excellent and unique work deconstructs complex scenarios into understandable components, providing invaluable guidance to clinicians as they consider options for managing adverse drug effects that range from the most common to the most serious.
