Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mani Pavuluri, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: In this book the current usage of Ritalin is discussed, including the diagnostic issues where it is indicated, clinical usage, its effects on psychopathology and psychometric functioning, and its psychopharmacology. This is an updated second edition; the first edition was published in 1991.
Purpose: This second edition is written to accommodate a large body of research that has now become available on aspects such as language processing and psychopharmacology. The topics chosen to be included are popular in the scientific world as well as among those who deal with ADHD on a clinical basis.
Audience: This book is of particular significance to those researching the treatment for ADHD, those who treat children with ADHD such as child psychiatrists, pediatricians, family physicians, and pediatric neurologists. The contributors chosen to write each chapter are authorities on those issues.
Features: Adult ADHD, children with HIV infection, ADHD with co-morbid conditions, the issue of addiction with Ritalin in comparison with amphetamines, effects of Ritalin on brain functioning, and effects on sleep are some of the pertinent additional chapters over other books on Ritalin use. The one issue not addressed in this book is the interaction of Ritalin with other drugs/medications. More often than not in clinical practice we see children with multiple medications, and this aspect could be relevant to clinicians prescribing Ritalin.
Assessment: This book is a welcome addition in that all the relevant aspects are collated in the form of one book. For those who keep abreast of literature, individual chapters were already published in the form of articles in various journals, but this second edition is up-to-date in those topics selected.
