Practical Psychopharmacology takes the novel approach of writing at three different levels—beginning, intermediate, and advanced—to give the practicing psychopharmacologist a tailored experience. Each chapter focuses on a specific DSM-5 disorder and outlines abbreviated treatment guidelines to help the reader understand where their knowledge base and clinical practice currently resides. At the first level, the book teaches novice prescribers practical diagnostic skills and provides a brief overview of pertinent genetic and neuroimaging findings to increase prescribing confidence. Next, it provides mid-level clinicians with intermediate techniques and guidelines for more difficult cases. The final level provides nuanced guidance for advanced practitioners or those who see the most treatment-resistant patients. This approach allows a clinician to access this book periodically throughout the care of an individual patient and to gradually progress through a series of more advanced psychopharmacological techniques for making accurate and efficient diagnoses. Readers can also visit the book’s eResource page to download a bonus chapter on eating disorders as well as case studies and multiple-choice questions for each chapter.

"The impetus for this book comes from our perception of a distinct unmet need in the world of clinical psychopharmacology, that of a marriage between clinical neuroscience and evidence-based trials, brokered by the matchmaker of pragmatism. There is, on the one hand, an ever-growing literature of randomized controlled trials, crossover trials, open case series, proof of concept studies and case reports that lend varying degrees of support for innovative therapeutic strategies; and, on the other hand, there exists a clinical reality in which patients frequently start and stop drugs not always for compelling reasons, where everyday practitioners manage patients on extensive polypharmacy regimens that may at times look like random assemblages, pharmacodynamic rationales are not always purposeful, mechanisms of action can be unwittingly redundant or contradictory, and ineffective treatments may senselessly get retained (sometimes perhaps even hoarded) rather than deprescribed"--

Physicians of the 1990s cannot afford to spend valuable time combing through volumes of laborious discussions of tedious details on psychiatric drugs. Practical Handbook of Psychopharmacology is the most comprehensive, yet user-friendly guide to psychotropic medication available in any single source. Text is minimized and straight to the point, with critical clinical information given in two forms. First, highly useful tables with the relevant basic information on all major psychotropic drugs are provided. The book also contains clinical flowcharts or tabular practice guidelines that assist in making everyday decisions about the use of psychotropics. Unique chapters discuss the psychopharmacology of pain, personality disorders, aggression, and children/adolescents, while other chapters cover standard areas such as depression, mania, psychosis, and dementia.

For each disorder, pharmacotherapy is discussed in the wider context of neurobiology, etiology, diagnosis and treatment. This will be essential reading for all mental health professionals to inform practice and improve patient outcomes.
