Details: Product Description Where other psychopharmacology textbooks and, indeed, most internships and residencies in psychiatry lack a solid basis in primary care medicine, Managing the Side Effects of Psychotropic Medications bridges that educational gap, offering a thorough examination of all the effects of taking a psychotropic drug, as well practical clinical advice on how to manage complications that arise. This second edition of the guide features updated information about newer psychotropic agents, as well as new drugs to help manage iatrogenic weight gain, metabolic dysregulation, involuntary movement disorders, and other common problems. New tables and figures have also been added to aid rapid assessment and management, and the self-assessment section has been updated and expanded with more key questions to facilitate knowledge retention. Regardless of their particular expertise, all clinicians will benefit from the rigorous scientific and scholarly discussion they will find in this edition of the consequences of drug therapies they prescribe, the range of available strategies to effectively manage adverse effects, and the scientific and practical implications of their treatment decisions. Review This erudite book will be of tremendous interest, and a must have, for all healthcare providers of persons receiving psychotropic agents, students of all levels, as well as individuals who are academically interested/involved. --Roger S. McIntyre, M.D., FRCPC, Professor of Psychiatry and Pharmacology, University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada This is an impressive work. It is a comprehensive, thorough, scholarly, detailed, and practical book for clinicians, a thoughtful balance of art and science. The result is a tour de force that belongs on the bookshelves of psychiatrists and many others. --Alan J. Gelenberg, M.D. A very welcome addition to the busy practitioners armamentarium. It provides in a single source important and often hard to find guidance on managing side effects of commonly (and uncommonly) prescribed psychiatric medications. It will be a very, very useful resource for psychiatrists, non-medically trained mental health professionals, nurses and students in a variety of fields. --Charles B. Nemeroff, M.D., Ph.D., Leonard M.
