In response to the rapid developments in psychopharmacology, this completely revised and updated edition of Stephen Stahl's much acclaimed Prescriber's Guide contains three new drugs. Almost every drug has had some changes to take into account new regulations and uses, Dr Stahl has updated every drug amending where necessary. Review from the first Prescriber's Guide '... The clinical tips and pearls that are found in each entry are invaluable - not only are dosing guidelines provided, but also the author's educated and respected opinion regarding potential advantages and disadvantages of each drug. The book's major strength is its readability and user friendliness. The art of psychopharmacology is finally given the space it deserves ... This guidebook is an excellent source of information for the art of prescribing psychotropic medications and belongs in every clinician's library.' The Annals of Pharmacotherapy
