Prescriber's Guide (2nd Edition)

Prescriber's Guide (2nd Edition)

http://www.pdatopsoft.com/PalmOS/Pr...e-(2nd-Edition)



Prescriber's Guide (2nd Edition) is completely revised as Stephen Stahl's much acclaimed and latest addition to the Essential Psychopharmacology range, and contains over 100 psychotropic drugs! In response to the rapid developments in psychopharmacology, almost every drug has had some changes to take into account new regulations and uses, with updates and amendments where necessary.

This Guide gives practical information on how to use these drugs in the clinical practice, providing the prescriber what they need to treat patients effectively. An excellent resource for the art of prescribing psychotropic medications, and belongs in every clinician's library.

All drugs are presented in the same easy-to-use format in order to facilitate rapid access to information. Specifically, each drug is broken down into five sections, each designated by a unique color: therapeutics, side effects, dosing and use, special populations, and the art of psychopharmacology, followed by key references/suggested reading:

Therapeutics:
Covers the brand names in major countries; the class of drug; what it is commonly prescribed and approved for by the US Food and Drug Administration; how the drug works; how long it takes to work; what to do if it works or if it doesn't work; the best augmenting combinations for partial response or treatment resistance, and the tests (if any) that are required.

Side effects:
Explains how the drug causes side effects; gives a list of notable, life threatening or dangerous side effects; gives a specific rating for weight gain or sedation, and advice about how to handle side effects, including best augmenting agents for side effects.

Dosing and use:
Gives the usual dosing range; dosage forms, how to dose and dosing tips; symptoms of overdose; long-term use; if habit forming, how to stop; pharmacokinetics; drug interactions, when not to use and other warnings or precautions.

Special populations:
Gives specific information about any possible renal, hepatic and cardiac impairments, and any precautions to be taken for treating the elderly, children, adolescents, and pregnant and breast-feeding women.

The art of psychopharmacology:
Gives the author's opinions on issues such as the potential advantages or disadvantages of any one drug, the primary target symptoms, and clinical pearls to get the best out of a drug.

Several indices are included such as listing of drugs by name (generic and international), drugs by class, and drugs by use.
