Physicians of the 1990s cannot afford to spend valuable time combing through volumes of laborious discussions of tedious details on psychiatric drugs. Practical Handbook of Psychopharmacology is the most comprehensive, yet user-friendly guide to psychotropic medication available in any single source. Text is minimized and straight to the point, with critical clinical information given in two forms. First, highly useful tables with the relevant basic information on all major psychotropic drugs are provided. The book also contains clinical flowcharts or tabular practice guidelines that assist in making everyday decisions about the use of psychotropics. Unique chapters discuss the psychopharmacology of pain, personality disorders, aggression, and children/adolescents, while other chapters cover standard areas such as depression, mania, psychosis, and dementia.
