Book Description :
Thoroughly updated for its Sixth Edition, Handbook of Psychiatric Drug Therapy is one of the most popular guides to the essential facts about all drugs used to treat anxiety, depression, bipolar disorders, psychotic disorders, substance abuse disorders, sleep disorders, dementia, and attention deficit disorder. Coverage of each drug includes mechanisms of action, indications, side effects, interactions, method of use, and caveats regarding special populations such as pregnant and elderly patients. The book gives specific prescribing recommendations—including dosage and duration of use—for individual drugs. Tables provide at-a-glance information and a disease-specific table of contents directs readers quickly to relevant drug chapters.
