[BACK COVER]:
With the continuing development of psychopharmacology, PSYCHOTROPIC DRUGS: FAST FACTS, 3rd Edition, continues to grow. New areas, such as cholinesterase inhibitors, continue the valuable expansion of treatments. As information in psychopharmacology explodes, clinicians must master increasingly complex information about new medications, new applications of existing medications, and the growing potential for adverse effects and interactions.

Now in its third edition, PSYCHOTROPIC DRUGS: FAST FACTS continues to present valuable information in a clear and accessible format. The book organizes and presents data clinicians need to choose the right treatment for common psychiatric problems and to anticipate and deal with problems that arise in treatment. Published material deemed by the authors to be relevant to clinician practice is summarized concisely so that the reader can have the latest material available in an easy-to-read format. Details of individual medications are summarized in convenient charts and tables.
