Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Raj Tummala, MD (Wyeth Pharmaceuticals)
Description: This practical complement to the full-sized PDR is an easy to use reference on psychotropics for both clinicians and nonclinicians taking care of patients with mental health disorders.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a comprehensive, easy to read, quick reference for those taking care of psychiatric patients. The book covers psychotropics, substances that can be abused, and common prescription medications that patients take for their medical problems.
Audience: The audience includes anyone involved in the care of patients in the mental health arena such as students, residents, clinicians, and nurses.
Features: Psychiatric patients commonly are prescribed medications for both their psychiatric and medical disorders. Some patients tend to also have comorbid substance abuse disorders. It is very important for the staff working with psychiatric patients to have an understanding of these medications and be aware of potential side effects and drug interactions. New to this edition are 18 additional psychotropic drug profiles and updated chapters on street drugs and pharmacokinetic information. Over 100 of the most commonly used medications in psychiatry are covered in the section on psychotropics. The format of each drug is consistent, presenting pertinent facts, side effects, interactions, and dosage. The information is presented in a reader friendly format allowing for anyone to understand the material. The section on interaction with psychotropics is well presented with the most common interactions for each drug detailing the interaction on three factors: onset, severity, evidence. The section on street drug profiles has been expanded to include over-the-counter drugs along with commercial products, commonly abused prescription drugs, and illegal drugs. Side effects by symptom are particularly useful to rule out causality between an agent and the symptom. The supplement on psychotropic herbs and supplements details the various agents used to relieve mental problems and their potential interactions/side effects/claims. Worthy of special mention is the index, which allows clinicians to easily find a drug based on either drug name (generic and trade names) or indication or drug class.
Assessment: This well written reference with a reader friendly format is a useful guide to psychotropic drugs for both clinicians and nonclinicians.
