Overview

The second book in the Evidence-Based Guides series, The Evidence-Based Guide to Antidepressant Medications, provides a clear reference to the current knowledge and evidence base for the use of antidepressants among a variety of patients across a wide range of disorders. Chapters within this guide are authored by experts in their respective areas of practice, and synthesize a large amount of medical literature into a comprehensive, yet understandable, concise, reader-friendly guide. Each chapter covers both the FDA-approved and off-label use of antidepressant medications and the evidence base for their use. Each chapter also features useful tables pertaining to specific topics, such as summaries of uses and efficacy, and important clinical pearls of wisdom in the Key Clinical Concepts. Topics covered in chapters within this text include: • Use of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, MAOIs, and tricyclic antidepressants in major depressive disorder, bipolar depression, psychotic depression, and treatment-resistant depression.• Acute management of anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and specific phobias through antidepressant use.• Use of antidepressant medication in medically ill patients, such as those with cardiovascular, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, renal, and endocrine diseases, as well as cancer, chronic pain, HIV, burns and hospital-based trauma.•Developmental considerations necessary to keep in mind when prescribing antidepressants to children and adolescents, along with an outline of controlled studies and their special attention to safety.• Medication management in geriatric patients, including antidepressant use among depressed elderly patients with dementia, stroke, or Parkinson's disease.• Risks and benefits of prescribing antidepressants during pregnancy and lactation.

Together, the authors have synthesized a large amount of medical literature into a comprehensive, yet understandable, concise, reader-friendly guide. The Evidence-Based Guide to Antidepressant Medications is a must-have reference for psychiatrists and other practicing clinicians, residents in training, psychiatric nurses, social workers and researchers.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Aaron Plattner, MD (Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services)
Description: This book provides the most up-to-date research data regarding the use of antidepressants in various patient populations and disorders.
Purpose: Acknowledging the expanding types of antidepressants and the high rates of prescribing of antidepressant medications for both FDA-approved conditions and off label uses by healthcare providers in different fields, the book strives to inform readers about the vast evidence base for the use of these medications. This is a worthy objective both because of the significant amount of antidepressants that are prescribed by healthcare providers with minimal training in this area and because of the high rates of treatment resistant depression.
Audience: The editor identifies this as a "must-have reference for psychiatrists and other practicing clinicians, residents in training, psychiatric nurses, social workers and researchers."
Features: The first section reviews the use of antidepressants for different psychiatric conditions including unipolar and bipolar depression, anxiety disorders, psychotic disorders, personality disorders, and substance-related disorders. The next section reviews considerations of antidepressants for different populations including children and adolescents, the elderly, the medically ill, and women who are pregnant or nursing. The final section reviews the use of antidepressants in patients receiving nursing care. Each chapter is divided into sections reviewing subcategories with limited charts and graphs, and concludes with key clinical concepts and references.
Assessment: I am impressed at how organized and structured this book is, providing readers with an excellent resource. With the movement away from older antidepressants, including the tricyclic antidepressants and monoamine oxidase inhibitors, this book also highlights the often overlooked psychiatric conditions for which these medications should be used. Further, I appreciate how this book reviews a wide variety of psychiatric conditions that are not usually associated with the use of antidepressant medications.
