This is a 2016 pocket guide of psychiatric medications. It functions as a quick resource for health care professionals and students whom have involvement with psychiatric patients and their medications. It serves to give the clinician a foothold in an environment that differs from other experiences in medicine, with unique terminology and disease states. This reference covers the core medications used in general psychiatry practice from a pharmaceutical standpoint. The handbook begins with a brief introduction of terminology and psychiatric legal parameters, to medication doses, black box warnings, side effects, drug interactions, and most importantly, monitoring parameters. Also included is a simple guide to make pharmaceutical interventions on patients' drug therapy. Disease states such as Anxiety, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Major Depression, Geropsychiatry, Pregnancy and Lactation, Schizophrenia, Seizure Disorders, Substance Abuse, and many more are reviewed. Best of all, the most important information for each is provided in summative, and easily indexed formats, so you can find the information you need as rapidly as you need it. This could be the best quick reference for important psychopharmacologic information you'll ever own.
