Psychopharmacology: A Concise Overview, 3rd Edition is an evidence-based overview of the major classes of psychiatric medications and their use in clinical practice. Clinical considerations as to when, why, and how to use each individual medication are discussed in depth, as are relevant clinical controversies and treatment caveats. Each chapter also features an updated table of individual medications and their generic and brand names, dosing information, pertinent clinical comments, black box warnings, and Food and Drug Administration indications. This overview will equip readers with an essential framework of the concepts of psychopharmacology in an accessible length and style ideal for use as either a primer or refresher text. Medical students, residents, practicing physicians, nurse practitioners and other prescribers, as well as non-prescribing mental health clinicians who need to have a functional familiarity with available pharmacotherapies, will benefit from reading this concise book.
