Summarizes essential information on all the major drugs currently used in clinical psychiatric practice.

Beginning with a brief discussion on drugs in psychiatry, the text moves on to consider the principles of psychopharmacology, which form the foundation of the sound, scientifically based use of drugs in psychiatry. Details are then given, in turn, of the main non-depot antipsychotic drugs, antipsychotic depot injections, antimanic drugs, tricyclic and related antidepressant drugs, monoamine-oxidase inhibitors, selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors, and other antidepressants.
This practical pocketbook is an essential companion for all medical staff involved in psychopharmacology, both for learning and quick reference.
