These individual volumes are grouped by specialty to benefit the practicing physician or health care clinician. The unwarranted effects of medications used in psychiatry can adversely affect a treatment plan. This book is critical in helping psychiatrists and mental health professionals assess the adverse effects of drugs such as antidepressants, mood stabilizers, hypnosedatives, and antipsychotic drugs.The material is drawn from the 15th edition of the internationally renowned encyclopedia, Meyler’s Side Effects of Drugs, and the latest volumes in the companion series, Side Effects of Drugs Annuals. Drug names have usually been designated by their recommended or proposed International Non-proprietary Names (rINN or pINN); when those are not available, clinical names have been used.
