Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Rajitha Avva, BS, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This book covers psychopharmacology used in the treatment of children. The previous edition was published in 1994.
Purpose: According to the authors, the purpose is to serve as a reference on the use of modern psychotropic medications for patients under the age of 18. The information in this field continues to grow with multiple drug studies. This book is needed as an update and reference of new information. The authors meet the objectives.
Audience: The book is mainly written for the prescribing psychiatrist. However, it is also a good reference for therapists, nurses, pediatricians, and medical students. The authors are all credible authorities in psychopharmacology for children and adolescents.
Features: The book has been divided into two parts. Part I focuses on ethical issues and epidemiology. Part II concentrates on the different classes of medications. The book incorporates results of studies done on specific medications. The authors use readily accessible charts and tables discussing drug interactions, side effects, and indications and contraindications. Unfortunately, the studies that are referenced are mainly through the year 1999. Few references from 2000 or later are noted in the book.
Assessment: This is an important reference in the field of child and adolescent psychopharmacology. The second edition updates what is now known about the use of certain medications in the treatment of childhood psychopathology. New editions will be necessary in the future as more studies on psychotropic medications in children are done. There are few books of this stature in the field.
From The Critics
Written primarily for prescribing psychiatrists, 20 chapters that review the state of the field with regard to the use of modern psychiatric drugs in patients aged 18 and under are presented by Rosenberg (Children's Hospital of Michigan), Davanzo (U. of California at Los Angeles), and Gershon (Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, U. of Pittsburgh School of Medicine). The first six contributions explore broad issues of pediatric psychopharmacology including historical perspectives, ethical issues, pharmacoepidemiology, research issues, and cardiac side effects. The remaining chapters review clinical information on the general classes of drugs and address the pharmacological treatment of substance abuse disorders and other issues. Annotation c.
