Drug Metabolism in Psychiatry: A Clinical Guide bridges the gap between the complexities of drug pharmacokinetics and everyday clinical practice. In straightforward language, Dr. Carlat teaches the basics of drug metabolism, providing clinicians more insight into how psychiatric drugs behave (or misbehave!) once their patients take them. The book also includes a series of unusually practical drug interactions charts that prescribers will find invaluable as they make medication decisions.

Review Quotes:

"Not only useful, but engaging and entertaining." -S. Nassir Ghaemi, MD, MPH "Dr. Carlat is a master at making tedious concepts come to life--I wish I had this book when I started my residency!" Claudia Baldassano, MD Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychiatry, University of Pennsylvania, School of Medicine, Director, Bipolar Outpatient Program

"A complete and informative, yet clever and entertaining exploration of a vitally important domain of psychiatry. This work is a must for the busy psychiatrist who has meant to learn more about drug metabolism, but never had the time. I highly recommend it." -Neil Sandson, MD Director of Residency Training, Sheppard Pratt Health System Author, Drug-Drug Interaction Primer: A Compendium of Case Vignettes for the Practicing Clinician
