Drug Treatment in Psychiatry Summary


Drug Treatment in Psychiatry: A Guide for the Community Mental Health Worker by Peter J. Tyrer

Drug treatment is one of the major issues in community mental health care, yet it is often monitored and evaluated by many professionals who have limited knowledge of psychopharmacology. Decisions about treatment, often have to be made at short notice by a single person who must know when and what to prescribe, the speed of response and the adverse effects of drugs. This book is an informative and authoritative text on all the major drugs used in psychiatry and how to make the best choice in different situations. The main difficulties that can arise in practice, such as non-compliance, are covered, together with ways of overcoming them. The book will help to integrate drug treatment within the multi-disciplinary team in line with current thinking.
