    Clinical Handbook of Psychotropic Drugs for Children and Adolescents

    Many psychotropic drugs are used to treat childhood and adolescent mental illness on the basis of efficacy in adults, despite not being currently approved for use in the young. The lack of approval does not necessarily reflect lack of safety or efficacy, but it does reflect a lack of controlled studies.

    The Clinical Handbook of Psychotropic Drugs for Children and Adolescents is a unique resource to help you make the right choice for younger patients:

    • Accurate and up-to-date
    • Specific to children and adolescents
    • Charts and tables help decision-making
    • Icons and full color
