The essential reference for anyone responsible for prescribing drugs for patients with mental health disorders.Widely and regularly used, it is the place to check for all relevant information on which drugs to prescribe, which side effects to look out for and how best to augment or switch drugs, such as antipsychotics, antidepressants and anxiolytics.This 12th Edition provides brief but detailed reviews of psychiatric disorders and relevant psychopharmacology, with general guidance based on the data reviewed and current clinical practice.

Reviews from Amazon users, collected at the time the book is getting published on UniedVRG. It can be related to shiping or paper quality instead of the book content:

⭐ Should be the standard prescribes guide for all residents. This beats Stahls (how can you even call that a prescribers guide) and Sadocks (better than Stahls but not really). This is catered towards the UK (obviously), but man oh man is it good. The authors are aware that their prescribes guide is used internationally and tried to cater to that as well. Strongly recommend this.

⭐ This is one of the best psychopharmacology books I’ve ever read. It is easy to read and full of important clinical information.

⭐ This is a great book, not just for the providers starting off in psychiatry but all of them! It’s really helpful. I would recommend any provider starting in the field of psychiatry gets this guideline book

⭐ Great book. References for all their claims, unlike certain other prescribing books.Gives a different countries view on things, the UK, that is a nice counter to trends/practices in the US.

⭐ Worth its weight in gold. Enough said. If you found this book, meaning you are looking for this kind of info, buy it.

⭐ My favorite guideline among all.It is thoughtful and practical, scientifically sound and respectful to the experienced clinician.I recommend it for every psychiatrist and resident.

⭐ 3+years experience bought this book as a refresher. it is great, very usable format and reasonable size for the amount of information.

⭐ Perfect training guide for our licensed nurse practioners.

⭐ Most useful psychopharmacology reference. Up to date, well referenced with good use of tables. If you have only one psychopharmacology book this is the one to have

⭐ Very useful for practice, well structured.
