This book provides practical, accessible guidelines on drug prescribing in psychiatry. It helps the reader to understand when to use a drug, when not to use a drug and when it should be used with caution, adverse agents and drug interactions, monitoring, and what to tell the patient.
This highly practical pocket book covers all the major psychotropic medications describing indications, contra-indications and cautions; practical details on how to use the drug (including details on how to initiate the treatment); the side-effects to look out for; clinically important interactions with other drugs; drug monitoring and other investigations that need to take place while the patient is taking the medication; and what the patient should be told. Icons are used throughout the text making it easy to find information on the structure, dose and side-effects of each drug. Introductory chapters describe the theory behind drug use in psychiatry and the principles of psychopharmacology. The book is organised by drug class for ease of navigation.
