About the Book

Case Studies in Psychopharmacology is an authoritative text written by pharmacists for pharmacists, doctors and nurses working in psychiatry. The contributors, all respected experts in their field, use case studies drawn from their own extensive expertise to illustrate the decisions made in treating patients suffering from a wide range of psychiatric disorders. These vignettes raise important questions concerning management. The chapter authors systematically review all the available evidence, presenting reasonable management decisions to guide the day-to-day therapy of the patients. The result is a practical and comprehensive book, providing considered and well-supported advice on the use of psychotropics in all the common therapeutic areas encountered in psychiatric and general practice.


From a review of the first edition: 'The first excellent review of the drug treatment of a wide variety of presentations of mental illness…a reliable, up-to-date, comprehensive source of information on the practical use of psychotrophic medicines.' - The Pharmaceutical Journal
