Handbook of Essential Psychopharmacology

Handbook of Essential Psychopharmacology, Second Edition, provides an indispensable guide to vital information in the rapidly expanding field of psychopharmacology. The updated edition of this popular handbook will continue to be a reference that is simply the essential starting point in psychopharmacology for residents and experienced clinicians alike. Busy residents and clinicians will find a quick, current, and accessible guide to basic facts about the four main groups of psychotropic medications, including dosages, indications, and drug interactions. Retaining the easy-to-use structure of the first edition, this update begins with an all-new introductory chapter designed to equip the reader with a basic understanding of pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics. Four subsequent chapters summarize critical information about antidepressants, antipsychotics, anxiolytics, and mood stabilizers. With its wealth of tables and graphs for quick clinical consultation, unique self-instruction sets of questions and answers, fascinating vignettes and puzzlers, extensive references, and-new to this edition-an invaluable appendix of fifty CME questions and answers, this truly essential guide is a handy clinical reference for experienced clinicians, an ideal teaching tool for educators, and a useful resource for residents, especially those preparing for the psychiatry board examinations.
