The thoroughly updated Fourth Edition of this popular handbook includes all the newest drugs used to treat psychiatric disorders. Each chapter provides complete information on preparation and dosages; indications; use in children, elderly persons, and pregnant and nursing women; adverse reactions; and drug-drug interactions.
To help physicians recognize and prescribe medications, the book presents color plates of all major drugs and indicates the forms and dosages in which they are available. Front-of-book tables identify chapters where each drug is discussed, and drugs used for each disorder. Also included is a tabular listing of toxic and lethal doses of each drug, symptoms of overdose, and emergency management measures.
