Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael Joel Schrift, D.O., M.A.(University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is the seventh edition of this obligatory manual for the practice of clinical psychopharmacology, which has greatly swelled since the first edition, with expanded coverage of the latest medications and indications for their use. Written and edited by giants in psychopharmacology, this manual remains a valuable resource for practicing psychiatrists as well as trainees.
Purpose: The purpose is to present "systematic, comprehensive, yet utterly accessible information and practical advice for applying psychotropic medications to the treatment of specific psychiatric conditions. Although largely evidenced-based, the book also draws upon the authors' (which is the real strength of this book!) clinical experience in discussing drug efficacy, dosing, side effects, and contraindications."
Audience: The targeted audience is psychiatry residents and practicing psychiatrists. Medical students, trainees in primary care residencies, and primary care physicians would find this helpful as well.
Features: Chapters cover the principles of psychopharmacology, diagnosis and classification, antidepressants, antipsychotic drugs, mood stabilizers, antianxiety agents, hypnotics, stimulants (which include amphetamine, atomoxetine, guanfacine, and other fast-acting agents, augmentation strategies, treatment in the emergency department, pharmacotherapy for drug abuse, and pharmacotherapy in special age groups or situations including children, the elderly, pregnancy, mental retardation, and in various medical conditions. Each chapter concludes with relevant and recent citations of the scientific literature. The manual of 720 pages (will not easily fit in your lab coat pocket!) also includes a bibliography, an appendix for the strength and cost of antidepressant and antipsychotic drugs, and a section of suggested readings.
Assessment: This remains an outstanding contribution to the practice of psychiatry and a must read for trainees in psychiatry. Although it doesn't have fancy diagrams compared to another well-known psychopharmacology book, it also doesn't have any obvious bias.
Katherine A. Tracy
This third edition provides up-to-date information on drug therapies for psychiatric disorders to aid the clinician in making informed decisions regarding treatment selection as well as subsequent management. The authors present basic and practical information regarding psychiatric medications and provide current information regarding newer agents in a usable clinical guide. Information is derived from scientific literature and common clinical use. This is a useful manual for all practitioners of clinical psychopharmacology. In particular, it should be a valuable resource for medical students and psychiatric residents. Nurses and therapists who care for patients receiving psychotropic medications may also find it useful. An adequate number of tables and figures complement the text. References are current, but the text is sparsely referenced (as acknowledged by the authors). An extensive bibliography follows each chapter, and the appendixes include suggested reading lists for clinicians and for patients and their families. This third edition is a valuable, extremely readable resource for residents in training as well as those currently practicing psychopharmacology. Classes of psychotropic medications are reviewed, including recommendations on selection, dosing, and management of side effects. The authors will often highlight changes in treatment recommendations that have evolved since the earlier edition of 1991. Agents approved since the second edition are reviewed, such as nefazodone, venlafaxine, mirtazapine, risperidone, and olanzapine. Agents not yet approved or not approved for certain indications are also discussed, such as sertindole, quetiapine, gabapentin, andlamotragine. Chapters address varied topics: medicolegal issues, psychoeconomics, combination therapy, and special populations (pregnant women, children and adolescents, mentally retarded, geriatric , and others). This useful and practical reference replaces the earlier edition.
