Book description

This extensively revised second edition provides a user-friendly step-by-step manual on the range of psychotropic medications prescribed for children and adolescents by clinicians and nurse practitioners. Boasting nearly double the medications of the first edition, it features new sections related to pharmacokinetics and pharmacogenetics in children and adolescents alongside algorithms for addressing frequently encountered disorders such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, ADHD, and OCD. Based on the best-seller, Stahl's Prescriber's Guide, and using a full-color template-driven navigation system, it combines evidence-based data with clinically informed guidance to support prescribers in the field. Each drug is presented in the same classic design format with illustrated guidance on dosing, titration, and pharmacogenetics/metabolism. Color-coded sections distinguish clearly the information presented on therapeutics, safety and tolerability, dosing and use, what to expect, and the art of psychopharmacology, and are followed by updated and new key references. A must-have guide for all mental health professionals.
