Description

Since 1986, the Manual of Clinical Psychopharmacology has been the gold standard for applying psychotropic medications to the treatment of specific psychiatric conditions. With each new edition, the book has grown in stature as well as in size, making it the bestselling book of its kind. Its many outstanding features include: - Foundational information on the general principles of psychopharmacological treatment to ground and orient the reader - Practical advice, both evidence-based and derived from the authors' clinical experience, on dosing, titrating, and combining medications, as well as on the potential side effects of specific drugs and combinations- Extensive coverage of augmentation for treatment-resistant disorders, including depression, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia- A special section on geriatric psychopharmacology, a field that continues to gain prominence as the Baby Boomer generation ages- Coverage of special topics, including emergency room treatment, pharmacotherapy for substance use disorders, psychotropic medication use and contraindications during pregnancy, pharmacotherapy in persons with mental retardation; legal and ethical issues- Summary tables of key information on classes of psychotropics, which serve as quick reference guides, as well as an abundance of illustrations and figures While the information is both up-to-the-minute and comprehensive, perhaps the book's most compelling attribute is its collegial and accessible writing style. Practicing psychiatrists, psychopharmacologists, pharmacists, and students in psychiatry and pharmacology will find the narrative easy to follow, without sacrificing depth. Reliable, readable, and highly regarded, this new edition of the Manual of Clinical Psychopharmacology continues the tradition established by its predecessors.show more

Flap copy

Since publication of the first edition of the Manual of Clinical Psychopharmacology in 1986, the number of psychotropic medications has expanded greatly, and these medications are being used in unforeseen and unprecedented ways. Pharmaceutical companies develop -- and clinicians and patients await -- new drug therapies to treat diverse conditions, from attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder to social phobia, from posttraumatic stress disorder to depression. The pace and complexity of research in this critical discipline make it essential that practitioners stay abreast of both new medications and promising treatment protocols. This newly revised and completely current seventh edition of this classic manual is an indispensable resource for clinicians and students in both psychiatry and pharmacology. Revised by preeminent psychopharmacologists, the book presents systematic, comprehensive, yet utterly accessible information and practical advice for applying psychotropic medications to the treatment of specific psychiatric conditions. Although largely evidence-based, the book also draws upon the authors' clinical experience in discussing drug efficacy, dosing, side effects, and contraindications. The many succinct summary tables serve as quick reference guides, and helpful illustrations abound. Veteran clinicians and neophytes, alike, will find the information they need in this collegial, comprehensive, and cutting-edge manual.show more
