In full color throughout, this pragmatic guide for prescribing clinicians complements the conceptual approach of the best-selling Essential Psychopharmacology. Covering over 100 psychotropic drugs, each with four or more pages, Stephen Stahl gives all the information a prescribing clinician needs to treat patients effectively. For each drug the information comes in five brief, clear categories: general therapeutics, dosing and use, side effects, special populations, and pearls. Target icons appear next to key categories for each drug so that the prescriber can go easily and instantly to the information needed. There are several indices, one consisting of a comprehensive list of both generic and proprietary names for all the drugs featured, one categorizing the generic drugs by use, and one listing the drugs by class.

• Covers over 100 psychotropic drugs • Easy-to-use format with color icons marking key elements for easy location • Latest addition to the highly successful family of Essential Psychopharmacology books from Stephen Stahl

Reviews

'I think that this manual has all the characteristics of a true bestseller. The format is very attractive, the information is complete, the consultation is easy. In no other recent text will a clinician find so much information in such a concise and user-friendly format.' Acta Psychiatrica Scandinavica

'those who are conversant with the other textbooks on Essential Psychopharmacology written by the author will find the present textbook particularly useful as a practical application of the principles presented in those texts. However, this Guide will also be of assistance to any prescribing physician who wishes to obtain a short, clearly presented account of the drugs used in psychiatric practice.' Human Psychopharmacology

'The book's major strength is its readability and user friendliness … This guidebook is an excellent source of information for the art of prescribing psychotropic medications and belongs in every clinician's library.' The Annals of Pharmacotherapy
