Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: John S. Lyons, PhD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This book presents an alphabetical listing of more than 100 drug monographs for medications available in North America with indications for use with persons with psychiatric disorders. Each monograph includes trade names, classification of drug type (e.g. sedative-hypnotic), approved indications, usual dosage and administration, available dosage forms, storage, compatibility, proposed mechanisms, pharmacokinetics, relative contraindications, cautions, drug interactions, adverse drug reactions, and overdosage.
Purpose: The authors' stated purpose is to provide an accurate and authoritative reference book on currently available psychotropic medications in North America.
Audience: The stated audience is practicing clinical psychologists and clinical psychology graduate students. Clinical social workers and other non-physician mental health specialists could probably benefit from this book as well.
Features: In addition to the comprehensive drug monographs, the book contains four appendixes and an thorough index. The appendixes include a listing of psychotropic medication by classification, U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency schedule designations, Food and Drug Administration pregnancy categories, and a glossary of abbreviations and symbols.
Assessment: This is a wonderful reference for any practicing or training psychologist who wishes to remain informed about their clients' options regarding pharmacotherapy. It is copied after the Physicians' Desk Reference but is much more focused and relevant to non-physician mental health specialists. At minimum, it should help keep non-physician mental health practitioners informed about drug treatment. However, it also can help psychologists become advocates for their clients' pharmacotherapy. This book should be on the shelf of any practicing clinical psychologist.
