Psychiatric Drug Handbook

by Lopamudra (Dhar) Chowdhury, Om Prakash Singh

The aim of this Handbook is to focus on Psychiatric Drug. Psychiatry is a broad clinical discipline concerned with therapy of a myriad of psychiatric disorders. Pharmacology is the basic cornerstone in the treatment of psychiatric disorders and often patients require lifelong therapy. Drugs used in psychiatry are unique in some aspects. These drugs have complex mechanisms of action, multiple uses and many drug interactions. As most patients undergo drug therapy for a prolonged period of time, patients often have other co-existent diseases or other co-administrated drugs. This book is intended to provide coverage of all important aspects of drugs used in psychiatric disorders, in an easy, concise yet comprehensive style. It will save time and certainly be very useful to the busy practitioners as well as students. Information in bullets, tables and clinical pearls at the end of chapters emphasizes important points, which can be memorized easily. Moreover, certain topics like antidepressants, psychiatric drug therapy in special conditions and drug-drug interactions have been discussed too. Psychiatric Drug Handbook will be of immense help for the undergraduate students in their preparation for PG entrance examinations as well as postgraduate students for their pharmacology oriented VIVA.
