This completely revised and updated edition of Stephen M. Stahl's much-acclaimed Prescriber's Guide is the latest addition to the Essential Psycho pharmacology range.
Seven new drugs have been added, and every drug has been revised and updated to take into account new regulations and uses. In full colour throughout, and with four or more pages for each of the more than 100 psychotropic drugs, Stephen M. Stahl distils his great expertise into a pragmatic formulary that gives all the information a prescriber needs to treat patients effectively.
Each drug is covered in five categories: general therapeutics, dosing and use, side effects, special populations, and pearls. Target icons appear next to key categories for each drug so the prescriber can go easily and instantly to the information needed.
Several indices are included, listing drugs by name (generic and international), use, and class. In addition, Dr Stahl indicates which drugs have FDA approval and also gives the FDA Use-in-Pregnancy ratings.
