From the reviews
“This book is a valuable quick reference tool - a clinical resource guide for practitioners who utilize psychotropic drugs in any care setting. For pharmacists, this comprehensive resource allows for quick access to information needed to guide clinical decisions and dispense medications safely.
“A unique aspect is the incorporation of evidence-based best practices and up-to-date literature into the prescribing information, which elevates it from a basic drug database. In addition, the use of charts and tables enables users to access information quickly, making the book a useful tool for clinical decision making.”
Marissa Cavaretta, PharmD, Temple University School of Pharmacy, Philadelphia, PA, in Doody’s Reviews, 2022
“This is the new edition [23rd] of a very important book that provides valuable information which otherwise would be scattered among different publications. With the increasing rate of prescription of psychotropic drugs, this volume should be on the desk of every physician. The information is crucial for understanding side effects, vulnerabilities, and interactions of psychotropic drug treatment.”
Giovanni A. Fava, MD, in Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics, 2019
