In response to rapid developments in psychopharmacology, this is a spin-off from Stephen M. Stahl's new, completely revised and updated third edition of his much-acclaimed Prescriber's Guide. It covers the most important drugs in use today for psychosis and mood stabilization. In full color throughout, and with four or more pages for each of the antipsychotic drugs, Stephen M. Stahl distills 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 that the prescriber can go easily and instantly to the information needed. Several indices are included, listing drugs by name (generic and international) and use. In addition, Dr Stahl indicates which drugs have FDA approval and also gives the FDA Use-in-Pregnancy ratings.
