Meyler's Side Effects of Psychiatric Drugs

book gives a response to the increasing interest in side effects of
psychiatric drugs. The association of some antipsychotics with different
cardiovascular reactions, the withdrawal of certain antidepressants for
security reasons, along with the possibility of better treatments for
patients when side effects of medications used are known, have
contributed to this interest. Meyler’s Side Effects of Psychiatric Drugs
is organized by sections: antidepressants, neuroleptic drugs,
hypnosedatives, drugs of abuse, drugs used in Alzheimer’s disease and
psychological and psychiatric adverse effects of non-psychoactive drugs.
For each section, there is overall and general information presenting
the main features of the group and the different adverse reactions;
then, there is information corresponding to the individual drugs with
the same scheme. In this manner, the book is easy to use and information
is easy to find. The editing is fantastic and has been performed by the
expertise of Jeffrey K. Aronson, editor as well of Meyler’s Side
Effects of Drugs, a remarkable book whose first edition was published in
1952 and remains unique in the world for his quality and the vast
amount of data included. Now, Meylers’s Side Effects of Psychiatric
Drugs, with advanced knowledge and the same quality and thoroughness,
expands the scope of the preceding work to the field of psychiatry
making this book more oriented to clinical practice. Thus, an invaluable
material is delivered for psychiatrists and other clinicians interested
in an update in this transcendental field. When compared to other
traditional reference books such as PDF or BNF, Meylers’s Side Effects
of Psychiatric Drugs provides more comprehensive, evidence-based
information, and a more critical approach. In summary, Meylers’s Side
Effects of Psychiatric Drugs is an essential tool for those who want to
keep updated and to have an in-depth knowledge of the safety problems
associated with drugs used in psychiatry.
Meyler’s Side Effects of Psychiatric Drugs is divided into 6 major
sections: Antidepressants (including lithium); Neuroleptic drugs;
Hypnosedatives; Drugs of Abuse; Drugs used in Alzheimer’s Disease; and
Psychological and Psychiatric Side Effects of Non-psychiatric Drugs.
Anticonvulsant mood stabilizers are also discussed. Each section is very
comprehensive regarding the clinical uses of the class of medications,
the side effects to be anticipated, drug interactions, long-term
effects, and effects of drug overdosage. Compounds within a class are
separately noted, and medications used throughout the world are
discussed. There is an excellent and useful index, and each section has
an excellent and up-to-date reference list
