Psychotropic Drugs, third edition, presents essential psychopharmacologic information in a comprehensive, user-friendly format. With the contemporary emphasis on the biologic basis of mental disorders, current information about psychotropic drug interventions is necessary for all health care providers. Part One of the book consists of 21 narrative chapters that provide an overview and basic discussion of the biologic bases of psychopharmacology as well as the uses of psychotropic drugs for specific psychiatric disorders across the lifespan. Part Two contains a series of brief profiles for some of the most common psychotropic drugs, listed by generic name, for access in clinical situations. Presenting this material in both a comprehensive narrative style and in individual alphabetic drug profiles, this book can be used as both a quick and in-depth reference.
